Evan Rachel Wood claimed in court documents that Marilyn Manson threatened her son

Since accusing Manson of abuse, Wood said that the musician threatened to “f***” her 8-year-old son. Woods shared this information in court documents regarding a custody battle with her ex Jamie Bell

“I took his threat seriously, then and now,” Wood said (per Daily Mail). She stated that Manson’s threats made her install bulletproof windows, a security fence, and a steel door at her home. She is also “looking into attack dogs and security guards at night.”

Wood explained that another of Manson’s alleged victims had a recording of him saying he had her children’s social security numbers and photos of them checking their mailbox. Manson allegedly said in the recording, “I’ve got everything, they’re f**ked, and they’re going to be f***ing destroyed.”

The Frozen 2 star stated in court documents, “I am extremely afraid of the alleged offender. I have suffered severe traumatic physical and emotional injury at his hands, and I am afraid he will seek retribution against me for testifying by harming me, our son, and members of my family.”

She added, “In my experience, the alleged offender is very retaliatory and has always made it clear that he will ruin my life.”

The ‘Westworld’ actor said her musician ex is involved in human trafficking 

Wood said that she fears for her son not only because Manson allegedly threatened another of his accuser’s children but also because she said her ex “was involved in human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of minors on a large scale.”

Wood said she moved from California to Nashville, Tennessee because she was afraid of Manson. 

“These new developments, combined with the pending criminal investigation, lead me to be very concerned about our child’s safety when in Los Angeles,” Wood stated.
