In accordance to the lawsuit, Manson “set out to groom” Walters immediately after finding her on social media, complimenting her pictures and “dangling experienced chances … in purchase to manipulate and exploit her to the point that she was handled like residence.” He later on hired her as his personalized assistant in 2010.
The paperwork define a sample of physical and psychological abuse in which Manson allegedly consistently assaulted Walters ahead of showering her with praise — leaving Walters “both happy that [Manson] was very pleased of her operate and extremely traumatized by what transpired.”
During their very first in-individual interaction, Walters alleges that Manson asked her to take away her shirt for a picture shoot right before pinning her onto his bed and forcing himself on her in his West Hollywood residence.

“[H]owever, the fact was that he was looking to create an surroundings the place [Walters] was subjected to personalized and professional sexual exploitation, manipulation and psychological abuse.”
Manson was dropped by his agent and his file label in early February soon after “Westworld” actor Wooden created her allegations general public via an Instagram submit. “He began grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for decades,” she wrote. “I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am accomplished living in worry of retaliation, slander, or blackmail.”
