The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Bureau began investigating domestic violence allegations against Mr. Manson in February, a statement said.
Ms. Bianco, who played Ros in “Game of Thrones,” was promised a starring role in a movie Mr. Manson made when she moved from London to Los Angeles in 2011 to be with him. Instead, according to the suit, he began to control her movements, keeping her awake for days, forbidding her to receive visitors in his home, and threatening to disrupt her visa process. She finally escaped, the suit said while he slept.
Mr. Ciulla and others, including Mr. Manson, knew or experienced his abuse of Ms. Bianco, according to the lawsuit, in which they were identified as “complicit” in the conduct: “Mr. Warner’s management had a vested interest in reporting his violent tendencies support to encourage the creation of his ‘art’ and the promotion of the Marilyn Manson brand. “
Ms. Bianco said the relationship left her burdened with post-traumatic stress disorder and panic attacks and disrupted her career. Like Ms. Wood, she has become an advocate for survivors. Both women helped sponsor California’s Phoenix Act, which went into effect last year. It extends the statute of limitations for domestic abuse crimes to five years and expands the training of civil servants working on domestic violence cases.
In a statement, Ms. Bianco said that while she worked to change the legal system on behalf of the survivors, “she was exercising my right to demand that my perpetrator be held accountable, using all possible means at my disposal . “
“For far too long my perpetrator has been left unchecked, made possible by money, fame and an industry that has turned a blind eye,” Ms. Bianco said in the statement. Her hope, she added, is that she will help keep Brian Warner from destroying further lives and empower other victims to seek their own small measure of justice.
