"I basically felt like a prisoner," Bianco told The Cut. "I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet." she said. 

Bianco also recalled that how Manson was her "massive role model who really helped me through some incredibly dark and difficult times as a teenager" to a "monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women."

In the years after her relationship, Bianco claims that she's suffered from panic attacks and lived in a constant state of fear. "I couldn’t step up to meet that moment in my life because of what he’d done to me," she said, with reference to her struggle to find work after her role in 'Game of Thrones' came to an end.

Bianco's allegation comes in the wake of an Instagram post from actress Evan Rachel Wood, who accused the singer of “horrifically” abusing her while they were together. "The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years," Wood claimed. "I was brainwashed and manipulated in submission." Read more here.
