Marilyn Manson 2023 Lawsuit Against Ex Evan Rachel Wood Gutted

Marilyn Manson 2023 Lawsuit Against Ex Evan Rachel Wood Gutted

(LOS ANGELES) – Marilyn Manson’s lawsuit against his former girlfriend, “Westworld” actor Evan Rachel Wood, was dismissed by a California judge on Tuesday, claiming she manufactured public allegations that he sexually and physically abused her during their relationship and urged other women to do the same.

Manson’s lawsuit, filed last year, claims that Wood and another woman identified as a defendant, Illma Gore, defamed Manson, willfully caused him emotional pain, and destroyed his music, television, and cinema career. It claims they used deception, including a forged FBI letter, to get more women to come forward with sexual abuse allegations and to advise them on what to say about Manson, whose official name is Brian Warner.

The portion of the lawsuit dealing with the disputed FBI letter, which Wood denies forging, was dismissed by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa A. Beaudet. Beaudet also removed a portion that claimed Wood and Gore used a checklist obtained on an iPad to establish abuse charges against Manson.

The judge did not rule on the FBI letter’s merits but determined that the evidence that the defendants used it to recruit other women and harm Manson was speculative and thin. Beaudet discovered no evidence that Wood and Gore created the checklist. She stated that the chances of Manson winning either phase were slim.

Beaudet’s decision was based on California legislation intended to safeguard defendants’ free speech from being stifled by lawsuits.

“We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling, which affirms and protects Evan’s exercise of her fundamental First Amendment rights,” Wood’s attorney Michael Kump said in a statement. “As the Court correctly determined, Plaintiff failed to demonstrate that his claims against her have even a smidgeon of merit.”

Manson’s attorney stated that he intends to file an instant appeal.

“The ruling is disappointing but not unexpected,” Manson’s attorney Howard King said in an email. “The Court telegraphed this outcome when it refused to consider the bombshell sworn declaration of former plaintiff Ashley Smithline, which detailed how women were systematically pressured by Evan Rachel Wood and Illma Gore to make false claims about Brian Warner.”

Other parts of the lawsuit remain because they were not subject to Wood’s motion, including allegations that Gore hacked Manson’s email, phone, and social media accounts, created a phony email to fabricate evidence that he was sending illegal pornography, and “swatted” him, allegedly with Wood’s approval, by sending authorities to his home.

Several women have sued Manson recently with allegations of sexual and other abuse. Most have been dismissed or resolved, including one filed by “Game of Thrones” actor Esme Bianco.

And for over two years, police and prosecutors have conducted a criminal investigation into Manson. Prosecutors indicated in September that they needed more evidence from detectives before determining whether to charge him. The victims have not been named.

Unless they come out publicly, the Associated Press does not usually name anyone who claims to have been sexually abused.

In 2017, when the #MeToo movement gathered speed, Wood said she had been raped and mistreated and offered testimony to a Congressional committee in 2018 without naming anyone. Wood then named Manson in an Instagram post in February 2020, alleging he “horrifically abused me for years.” They announced their relationship in 2007 and were briefly engaged in 2010 before splitting up. In March, HBO aired a documentary about the allegations.

According to Manson’s lawsuit, Wood had only positive things to say about Manson during their relationship, and she revealed nothing about his abuse of her for 10 years until she met Gore, an artist described in the lawsuit as Wood’s on-again, off-again love partner.

The football star’s big moment occurred amid a shift in Swift’s “Tortured Poets Department” setlist. He was greeted with boisterous yells and acclaim when he initially emerged on stage, dressed in a top hat and a black tailcoat and holding Swift in his arms.

Kelce fanned himself with a hand fan, twirled around, and grinned at Swift while her dancers assisted her with an onstage outfit change.

Swift looked to blow Kelce a kiss before walking away to sing “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart.”

Los Angeles — Taylor Wily, a former sumo wrestler best known for his role as confidential informant Kamekona Tupuola on “Hawaii Five-0” and “Magnum P.I,” died on Friday, according to a friend and a “Hawaii Five-0” producer. He was 56.

“Hawaii Five-0” executive producer Peter M. Lenkov announced his death to The Associated Press and posted numerous condolences to the actor on Instagram, adding, “I am devastated. “Heartbroken” was the caption for a photo of the two.

KITV 4 in Honolulu was the first to report Taylor’s death on Thursday. Additional data concerning the cause are unknown. Lina Girl Langi, a TV and radio personality, said on the show “Island Life Live” that she broke the news “with a heavy heart,” because Wily was a friend.

Taylor’s longtime friend and partner, Lenkov, uploaded a second post later on Thursday with a video montage of images and clips with him. He commented, “You charmed me into making you a regular on the show and my life.” You were a family member. I’ll miss you every day, brother.”

In an extra statement to the AP, Lenkov said it was difficult to characterize Wily’s “special” qualities and praised the actor’s abilities.

“Even though a lot of his ‘Hawaii Five-0’ and ‘Magnum’ scenes featured his comedy skills, he was also an incredible dramatic actor,” Lenvok pointed out. “I wrote a script for him a few years ago and hoped to cast him in my next production. I wanted to keep him near, both as a friend and as an artist. I’m devastated that I won’t get the opportunity.

Taylor played Kamekona on “Hawaii Five-0” from 2010 to 2020 and became a fan favorite. He reprised his role in the reboot of “Magnum P.I.” and had a noteworthy performance as a hotel worker in the 2008 comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

Before becoming an actor, Taylor, born Teila Tuli, was a well-known sumo wrestler and UFC 1 competitor. In 1993, he became the first knockout victim in UFC history after opponent Gerard Gordeau’s kick knocked a tooth out of Wily’s mouth, ending the bout in 26 seconds.

Wily is survived by his wife, Halona, and two children.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

When will Jeff Bezos confront the crisis in his newsroom?

The Washington Post’s owner and Amazon millionaire has yet to take any meaningful action to address concerns at his newspaper, which continues in disarray while explosive reports are published on a daily basis, calling the outlet’s new publisher, Will Lewis, into severe question.

Staffers at The Post are losing patience with Bezos, whose only response to the Lewis disaster so far has been to send a 138-word, single-paragraph memo from his Mediterranean yachting vacation to a few leaders at The Post, assuring them that he wants standards to remain “very high.” That is the root of the problem, according to The Post staff. They, too, want standards to stay “very high” and are concerned that Lewis constitutes an active threat to that common goal.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

More drama occurred Friday when Lewis said that Robert Winnett, whom he had identified as the paper’s incoming editor, would not be coming to manage the Post. This comes after The Post published a 3,000-word front-page exposé this week, revealing that Winnett had previously utilized documents from a self-described “thief” for reporting.

Frustrations and concerns are so severe at the outlet that two of the institution’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists have chosen to come out publicly, pushing for a change in leadership, an unprecedented move at the venerable newspaper. David Maraniss, an associate editor at The Post for nearly 50 years, said he doesn’t “know a single person at the Post who thinks the current situation with the publisher and the supposed new editor can stand.” Scott Higham, who has been with The Post for over two decades, concurred and urged for Lewis’ dismissal.

“Will Lewis needs to step down for the good of The Post and the public,” Higham posted on Facebook. “He has lost the newsroom and will never win it back.”

To summarise, Maraniss and Higham express what many in the newsroom believe. In meetings with more than a dozen people inside and close to The Post this week, it became evident that Lewis, in his brief six months on the job, has completely alienated personnel and now confronts insurmountable odds in regaining the employee base he hopes to lead. Whether or not he has strong business ideas is irrelevant. He has lost the respect of his staff. And any successful leader will tell you that without the credibility to lead, it is impossible to accomplish anything, let alone perform a Herculean company revolution.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

Bezos’ spokeswoman did not reply to demands for comment on Thursday. But certainly, the millionaire realizes the grave predicament that has gripped The Post. And it’s hard to imagine he truly feels his brief memo to The Post’s leadership was sufficient to quell the worries that have sparked the extraordinary outrage at the newspaper. In fact, it’s worth noting that Bezos has not expressed support for Lewis recently, providing him options as he assesses the deteriorating situation and decides how to stop the bleeding.

Staff at The Post are eagerly awaiting Bezos’ action. Since Lewis’s fury flared earlier this month, CNN employees have repeatedly warned the outlet that the ongoing turmoil has diverted attention away from the newsroom’s essential job. With a high-stakes election just months away, it is far from ideal to have the attention of one of the country’s leading news organizations diverted by internal strife.

It’s “a massive distraction,” one Postie told me Thursday, adding that The Guardian’s eye-catching story accusing Lewis of allegedly advising then-U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “clean up” his phone amid the so-called “Partygate” controversies is “the talk of the newsroom.” (Both Lewis and Johnson refuted the story.)

“I don’t think the mood will change until something else changes,” the employee explained.

In Bezos’ absence, reports questioning Lewis’ ethical integrity continue to emerge. According to the Financial Times, Lewis “retains links” to a public relations agency that advises powerful corporate and political figures on negotiating difficult circumstances. While the FT reported that Lewis had sold his ownership part in the company, it also stated that the firm had “continued to distribute regular emails from Lewis,” producing “confusion among people in contact with the agency.”

While the FT’s Thursday story lacked the weight of other news outlets’ recent reports, it did raise new questions about Lewis’ past and entanglements.

Meanwhile, as The Post and other sources, including The New York Times, continue to investigate Lewis’ past, many more concerns will arise. And as the inquiries continue, those at The Post will undoubtedly have one in particular for Bezos: What are your plans for restoring your newspaper’s reputation and status?
