Wolf Alice Singer Ellie Rowsell Accuses Marilyn Manson Of Up-Skirting

The allegations continue...

Wolf Alice singer Ellie Rowsell has accused Marilyn Manson of pointing a camera up her skirt at a music festival.

The metal artist is at the centre of a wave of allegations about his behaviour, with former partner Evan Rachel Wood going public on his abusive behaviour.

Wood was joined by detailed statements from four other women, something Manson described as "horrible distortions of reality".

Accused of physical and emotional abuse, some female musicians have come forward with past concerns about his behaviour.

Phoebe Bridgers described a traumatic visit to his house as a then-unknown fan, while Wolf Alice singer Ellie Rowsell has accused the metal performer of 'up-skirting'.

Speaking on social media, Ellie Rowsell wrote: "I met Marilyn backstage at a festival a few years ago. After his compliments towards my band became more and more hyperbolic I became suspicious of his behaviour. I was shocked to look down and see he was filming up my skirt with a gopro."

Taking this information to his tour manager, the Wolf Alice singer was met with indifference and the phrase "he does this all the time…"

"If he does this kind of thing all the time why on earth has he been headlining festivals for so many years? When will we stop enabling misogynists on the account of their success? Women must feel safe in the male dominated world that is the music industry."

She writes: "I wasn't sure whether to bring any of this up but Manson claims in his recent statement that his relationships were 'entirely consensual' – I don't think he knows the meaning of consent if he goes around up-skirting young women at festivals. Thank you for your courage Evan <3"
