Wanting to “expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him,” in reference to his music career and his involvement in several films and TV.
Three other women are also accusing the musician with similar descriptions of physical and psychological abuse.
Constant rumors about manipulation and abuse began on Twitter, with fans and followers of the actress intending to expose Manson, putting facts together and going viral with a series of interviews and videos.
Evan is now confirming all speculations, revealing that she stands “with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
