WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies raided Monday, according to a report, entertainer Marilyn Manson’s apartment in West Hollywood.

The sheriff’s investigators entered the residence early Monday morning and seized media storage devices, including hard drives, according to TMZ, even though 52-year-old Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, was not home at the time of the search.

The raid comes as part of an investigation into a series of allegations of sexual assault that have been filed against the singer.

Authorities have not disclosed any information as the investigation is ongoing. However, a spokesman for the sheriff’s department confirmed that the ruling was announced at Manson’s West Hollywood apartment.

A former assistant to Manson revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the singer has a soundproof room where he would lock “bad girls”.

Manson’s career is replete with legal issues dating back to as early as 1996. Most recently, his name has been linked to this series of allegations of sexual assault, beginning in late 2020 – when several former partners of Manson began discussing abuse they faced while with the performer.

The LASD confirmed that they are investigating the allegations in February 2021.

In February, actress Evan Rachel Wood accused him of emotional, sexual and physical abuse throughout their relationship, which lasted from 2007 to 2010.

He was sued by actress Esme Bianco in April for sexual assault and battery incidents that took place during their relationship in 2011. Bianco also alleged that she was repeatedly denied both sleep and food.

So far, at least 16 former partners have made allegations of abuse being inflicted on Manson’s hands and mouth. Four have filed civil lawsuits – Bianco, an anonymous ex-boyfriend, model Ashley Morgan Smithline and former Manson employee Ashley Walters.

In response to the allegations, Manson has been removed by his former label, Loma Vista Recordings, and his talent agency, Creative Artists. He was also dropped by his agent for more than 25 years, Tony Ciulla.

Manson has repeatedly denied all charges both on social media and in lawsuits that took place in June 2021.

A motion to dismiss the Bianco case was filed by Manson’s legal team in October 2021, which was immediately dismissed by Federal Judge Fernando L. Aenlle-Rocha.

So far, Manson has not been charged in connection with any of the charges.
