As accusations of physical and sexual assault mount against him, it has been confirmed that Brian Hugh Warner (aka Marilyn Manson) is under criminal investigation by the Los Angeles County sheriff.
In a statement, the department stated that the incidents of domestic violence under investigation "occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood."
While the identity of the victim of the alleged incidents was not disclosed, the dates coincide with Warner's relationship with actress Evan Rachel Wood, whose accusations of violence against him served as a catalyst for more survivors sharing their experiences.
Warner has denied any wrongdoing, stating via Instagram that his "intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners."
