As more women continue coming forward to speak on the alleged abuse they suffered by Marilyn Manson, Sharon Osbourne, the wife of Ozzy, is weighing in.
Accusations Rock the World of the Shock-Rocker
Evan Rachel Wood opened the floodgates when she revealed a dark secret about the alleged sexual and emotional abuse she experienced at the hands of her former fiancé.
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” Wood wrote. “He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission.
“I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail,” she continues.
At least four other women are showing support for the actress while describing their own harrowing experiences with the shock-rocker. Actress Rose McGowan dated the singer for a period of time and says she stands with Wood.
“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him before he ruins any more lives,” says Wood. “I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
Sharon Osbourne’s Reaction to Accusations
Sharon Osbourne is weighing in on the allegations.
“The Prince of Darkness” Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon are open about experiencing abusive nature by the Black Sabbath frontman in the past.
Manson and Ozzy have both used the shock factor while onstage and in public. Manson has always pushed the limits. Many individuals are unhappy with the singer due to his public opposition to the church and the violence described in his songs, along with a list of other troubling behavior. Ozzy has pulled similar stunts before, including biting the head off a bat while onstage.
Osbourne’s longtime wife, Sharon, has been behind the scenes of the music industry for the majority of her life. She is now a host on the television program The Talk. During Thursday’s episode, she used her platform to express her opinions on the allegations described in the case.
Although she declares she isn’t close with Manson on a personal level, she describes her relationship with the 52-year-old as a professional relationship.
Osbourne’s Relationship With Marilyn Manson
“I’ve known Marilyn for 25 years. [I’ve] worked with him for many, many years, and, obviously, I would not know what goes on in his bedroom; neither do I want to,” she says.
Osbourne describes how many people are attacking her on social media. She says they’re “calling me names and things and putting up pictures” of the two together.
“I know nothing about his sexual preferences or the way he treats women,” she says. “I know how he treats an older woman, which is me, and he’s always been respectful.”
Marilyn Manson has joined Ozzy to perform at Ozzfest five times. Between 1997 and 2018, Manson has performed at the festival five times.
Sharon’s working relationship could stem from touring with the rocker during the days of the heavy metal music festival.
Manson denies the claims by releasing a statement on social media.
