Marilyn Manson and wife Lindsay attend Enfants Riches Déprimés event at Maxfield LA

Los Angeles brand Enfants Riches Déprimés is currently showcasing their Spring 2024 collection at Maxfield LA, and the event was attended by Marilyn Manson and his wife Lindsay on April 17th. On March 16th, Manson posted photos on his social media wearing the Enfants Riches Déprimés brand, which is French for "Depressed Rich Kids". Enfants Riches Déprimés is a Los Angeles and Paris based luxury fashion brand founded in 2012 by the conceptual artist Henri Alexander Levy, who has created a French punk streetwear line based on the movements of the late 1970s and Japanese Avant-garde movements of the 1980s. One of the core precepts of the brand is high price points, with T-shirts ranging on average from $500 to $1,000, and haute couture jackets priced as high as $95,000. ERD consistently utilizes the business model of artificial scarcity. In this regard, all styles are sold on an extremely exclusive basis, and thus in relatively small quantities.

An Analysis of the 2019 Testimony of Evan Rachel Wood Before the California Senate Public Safety Committee


On April 23rd, 2019 Evan Rachel Wood testified in front of the California Senate Public Safety Committee on behalf of the Phoenix Act. The goal with the Phoenix Act was to extend the statute of limitations in domestic-violence cases from three to ten years and require police to have additional training in such cases in California, and after it passed in California to extend it to all fifty states. The act was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom later that year, extending the statute of limitations from three to five years in some cases. Evan did not name her abuser. She would not name her abuser for another year and a half. In her testimony, Evan reveals the details of an abusive relationship that she's never previously disclosed; below is her full unedited testimony followed by my commentary.


I will begin by saying something positive about Evan Rachel Wood. Whereas in her 2018 Congressional testimony she looked like a homeless, destitute woman making it too obvious she was looking to manipulate her listeners, this time around she was careful to wear something more suitable. This being said, last time she at least pretended to weep at the end of her testimony, but this time most of her testimony is given in a broken, weepy voice as if she really believes what she is saying is true. One of my favorite parts is when someone passes down a box of tissues, but Evan never needs to use it because as weepy as she sounds, not at one point did this great actress allow herself to tear up and prevent herself from speed reading through her testimony, speed reading to not allow her listeners to process how ridiculous her psychotic testimony really is. So in case Evan read things too quickly for you, I will analyze below every line of her testimony. Some sentences I could concentrate on for a whole essay, but what I am writing below is a brief summary of my thoughts, which will be expanded upon in future posts, if they have not already been expanded upon in previous ones.
"When I was a teenager, I met a Man."

From the beginning, Evan wants her audience to know that she met a certain anonymous Man when she was a teenager, hoping the audience will associate the word "teenager" with a 13 year old instead of an 18 or 19 year old, because Evan likes to emphasize how young and innocent she was when she met Marilyn Manson.

"Before meeting him, I only had two long term relationships in my high school years—with teenage boys, very close to my age.

He and I became fast friends, which I was grateful for, because at the time I didn't have many.

I looked up to him in many ways and felt special to be chosen. I felt like we had a unique bond."

She purposely only mentions the two "long term relationships" because Evan does not dare want to admit that she had a short term relationship with Edward Norton in May of 2006, who is just as old as Marilyn Manson, and it was shortly before she met Manson, though apparently she was dating Jaime Bell, who is a year younger than her, while she was dating Norton and striking up a friendship with Manson. But again, Evan is setting up her audience to show that Manson took advantage of her innocence and naivete. She is justifying becoming friends with this older Man, Manson, by saying she had few friends at the time.

"I had no intention of it turning into something romantic."

Relationships in which a couple are best friends before the romance tend to begin without an intention of it becoming romantic. As Evan said in a 2007 interview, "One day we looked at each other and just knew." Plus, it was Evan who initiated the romance.

"When it eventually did, I wasn't sure how to stop it."

When there's a spark, it turns into a flame - this is a sign of the first stage of romantic love.

"He had a certain charisma and power over everyone he came in contact with..."

Apparently when Manson comes into contact with people, especially women, they lose the ability to have freedom of choice, and they do whatever he says, even if they don't want to. Of course, Evan is basically using textbook descriptions of what an abuser is like, that has nothing to do with actual experience. Most women that have had a real relationship with Manson have not been like this, it's really only the insignificant ones who identify as bisexuals with activist aspirations and have chosen to sue him.

"...I quickly surrendered to his charms."

After years of mutual love, when the flame begins to die, a common refrain is told by the one whose flame dies and does not think that true love ever dies, so they say: "I don't know if I ever loved you." This then is over-analyzed in the brain and it turns into regret and self-justification, blaming the other party for making you temporarily think you were in love when in reality you weren't. This is when the charge of manipulation comes into play, to justify the fact that they didn't choose such a love but it was forced on them. Evan is basically equating a charming man with a manipulative man.

"In the beginning, he treated me like a princess."

Every man treats a woman he is trying to charm like a princess in the beginning. This is the story of every relationship, known throughout history as courtship, and was always looked upon as chivalrous and gentlemanly. To a bisexual woman such as Evan, however, who prefers to be known by the pronoun "they" instead of "she", such acts may appear to be abusive.

"I saw his temper directed at other people, but I wrote it off to him just being complicated and misunderstood. I never thought he would hurt me. I trusted him completely. He was my mentor, my savior, and my best friend."

At this point, Evan has drawn a totally fictional scenario to form a picture in our minds of Evan as a sweet, naive, innocent little girl, being carefully and methodically seduced and manipulated by a much older man, whom we know to be Marilyn Manson. Evan's emotions are not hers, but controlled by Manson; Evan has no free will, but is being totally controlled by Manson. She is drawing a scenario based on bullet points from a psychological textbook that has nothing to do with reality, a scenario any woman can draw of any man in any relationship if she so chooses. This is the great danger and evil of a woman like Evan Rachel Wood.

First of all, from the stories I've heard, Evan Rachel Wood was the one with the temper and Manson had to calm her down. She hated her privacy disturbed, she hated fans getting into her business, she hated the tabloids, she was basically a famous person who was an introvert dating another introvert who enjoyed being an extrovert in his public persona. Artists tend to be complicated people. It is well known Manson has a temper when it comes to people interfering in something he is trying to create, and the fact that Evan went on tour with Manson in the beginning of their relationship for eight months, which is an environment where Manson relies on a lot of people to get things done the way he likes it, no doubt she was exposed to his temper. It is at this point in the relationship where you decide if you want to continue a relationship with someone who occasionally has a temper or not, and Evan chose to continue, so this should not be an issue. What is even worse is that Evan gives absolutely no context to Manson having a temper, allowing the audience to draw the conclusion in their own head that it was really bad, because the actual context might draw sympathy towards Manson. But the fact that Evan hadn't named her abuser yet gives her the freedom to make these generalized statements in order for the audience to create in their own minds the worst possible monster possible. This is a classic Evan Rachel Wood manipulation technique she often employs.

"He would tell me, 'it was us against the world,' and I believed him."

According to Manson, when he was feeling down about his divorce from Dita, Evan comforted him by promising him that they would die together, and this is one of the factors that made Manson fall in love with her and get over his divorce. Manson and Evan also would watch and imitate to a certain extent such movies as Bonnie and Clyde and True Romance, together with the tales of consuming vampiric passion, which were incorporated into Manson's album Eat Me, Drink Me, and their passionate introverted romance became an "us against the world" type of romance, which Manson would go on to regret when he created his 2009 album The High End of Low, where he says that such love only leads to disappointment. But it was Evan who initiated such a romance, according to Manson, and it was mutually involved, and not just coming from Manson towards a stoic Evan Rachel Wood.

"I thought I had fallen deeply in love and I thought it was my duty to keep my partner happy at all costs."

Here it is - the "I don't know if I ever loved you." This sentence is self-contradictory. In the same line she tells us she was deeply and emotionally involved with Manson, but at the same time she was so in control that she tried to please him not out of the emotional bond she felt, but because it was her duty, once again showing us someone who is very emotional and stoic at the same time, which makes no sense. It sounds like someone analyzing a relationship many years in the past and not someone being truthful of what was really going on at the moment. Evan is creating a narrative in light of all the psychology and self-help books she had read over the years in which she formed a profile of herself as a victim and a survivor and Manson as an abuser. In fact, Evan was so "dutiful", that she would do anything for Manson, no matter what the cost. Basically, this just reveals to us that Evan was really and truly in love, but she can't admit it otherwise she would reveal to her audience that she actually has some agency and the abuse narrative would fall apart.

"I felt bad for him. I never thought he would hurt me."

Feel bad for what? Cause he had a temper? If you felt bad for him, then you know he was being treated wrongly. Basically, Evan is confessing that Manson was indeed being mistreated. But instead of explaining to us the circumstances of his temper, she makes it a point to say that she became the object of his temper outbursts.

"I was smart, but a smart 18-year-old is still an 18-year-old, and I was completely naive to the red flags he was showing me since the day we met. It wasn't until much later that I realized everything he had told me was a lie and part of what is called 'The Grooming Process.'"

First of all, Evan was 19 when she got into a relationship with Manson, but as is her usual way, she wants you to think of herself as young as possible. Second, yes, she was smart, and she was much smarter at 19 than she is today for thinking anyone with a working brain would buy into her bullshit testimony. She uses the term "red flags" and "grooming" to make her experience sound legitimate, when in reality she just read about these things on the internet and used the signs listed there of red flags and grooming to create her false narrative. And what exactly did Manson tell her that was a lie? Everything? Basically her feelings for Manson came from a sincere and good intentioned place, while everything Manson felt for her came from a false and evil intentioned place. This is a classic example of someone looking back on a real loving relationship many years later trying to psychologically spin it to fit a narrative totally created in her mentally ill mind. Only someone with severe mental illnesses is capable of doing something so wicked.

"He moved very fast in the relationship, asking me to move in with him almost immediately."

When older people get into relationships, they tend to move very quickly. A 38 year old who wants to be married will try and settle down as soon as possible. They don't like their lives being a state of limbo or uncertainty. When Evan gave this testimony she was 31 years old, and it seems probably still had not come to understand this. Maybe five years from now, when she will be Manson's age when he was in a relationship with her at 19, she will better understand this basic concept.

"I was unsure of this decision, but threw caution to the wind, as he made it seem so romantic."

Again, Evan is removing all responsibility away from her decision and projecting it all on Manson's alleged manipulative scheme to trap Evan.

"He had also hidden a terrible drug and alcohol problem from me."

Evan could only get away with saying this and being taken seriously by the fact that she had not named her abuser, because if her listeners knew that she was talking about Manson when she read this particular statement, she would have been laughed out of California. Manson has openly displayed his drug use and alcohol consumption perhaps more than any other rock star in history. There is no need to elaborate more on this, because everyone reading this now knows how much Evan is lying at this point. And not only is she lying about Manson, but about herself, because "snowflake" (her nickname) was herself a cocaine user with her own drug dealer and an alcohol consumer as well, despite being underage. And I would love to hear Evan's explanation one day of how Manson really did hide his "terrible drug and alcohol problem".

"Soon it was clear, there was a certain way he wanted me to look, otherwise I would endure name calling and ridicule."

Evan, who in her testimony confessed to not really having friends, has shown numerous signs of having a personality disorder that manifests in her mirroring the person she is closest to. Mirroring is the behavior in which one person unconsciously imitates the gesture, speech pattern, or attitude of another. Mirroring may be more pervasive in close friendships or romantic relationships, as the individuals regard each other highly and thus wish to emulate or appease them. Evan not only did this with Manson in the way she dressed, but in her entire attitude and personality. Manson called her his "twin" because she was so much like him, and this is what drew him so close to her. Evan has stated in more than one interview from the time she was with Manson that he never told her what to wear or how to look, but here in her testimony she is directly contradicting herself, because the bullet points of what the psychology textbook says fits an abuser requires that he force his victim to dress the way he wanted. But we know this is not true based on Evan's own words from 2007 and 2008, so this assertion is completely debunked. It is further debunked when we observe through photos every close relationship Evan has ever been in, whether it was Jaime or Zach or anyone else, where we see that she mirrors literally everyone, especially in regards to outfits and hair style.



"He started to cut me off from my close friends and family, one by one, by exhibiting rage in some form or another when I was in contact with them."

The truth is (perhaps) that Evan, by her own admission earlier in the statement, had no close friends, which is why she so easily embraced Manson as a friend. At least it was convenient to say that earlier when it fit well with her narrative. Now it fits her narrative to have close friends, because now she wants to show that Manson cut her off from the close friends she says she didn't have earlier. As for family, we have photos of Evan visiting her father throughout her relationship with Manson, probably more than usual, and she talked often with her mother, by her own admission. Furthermore, she said to her mother, according to the November 2016 issue of Rolling Stone, that she was going away with Manson on tour for eight months to find herself and that she couldn't do anything to stop her. This is something she chose to do. As for her older brother Ira, Manson was kind enough to have him live with Evan and himself while they dated in 2008, until he left to move back with his dad in North Carolina. Basically, this sentence is filled with Evan's self-created mythology.

"The only way I knew how to calm him was to give him what he wanted, which was me, all to himself, in total isolation."

If one examines the timeline of both Marilyn Manson's and Evan Rachel Wood's schedule throughout the entire time they were together, it will become very apparent that both were very busy and had little time with each other. For Evan to say she had totally isolated herself for Manson, is a complete joke, and it would be laughable if she wasn't saying this with the intention of trying to destroy a former lover of hers who is beloved by millions around the world. The challenge needs to go out to Evan to determine the exact dates she totally isolated herself for Manson, and she needs to clarify what isolation exactly means in this circumstance.

"He had bouts of extreme jealousy, which would often result in him wrecking our home, cornering me in a room, and threatening me."

I would love to hear who Manson was so jealous of, because as we heard from the interview of Colonel Kurtz with Manzin, when Evan cheated on Manson and became pregnant and decided to have an abortion, Manson came out to New York because she was feeling down in order to help her feel better and encouraged Manzin to do the same. If Manson was as jealous as Evan says, then wouldn't he have expressed his rage to his friend, named the person who got her pregnant, or even just showed some disappointment. Instead, Manson was supportive, even though it seems a likely factor in their separation a few weeks later. We can come up with other examples, such as the time when Evan was kissed on the lips by Mickey Rourke on the red carpet for the cameras while she was still with Manson, yet Manson didn't come after Rourke, instead they are good friends till this day. Another example is Alexander Skarsgard, who dated Evan in August and September of 2009 before she got back together with Manson and was engaged to him. A year later Manson and Skarsgard shared a stage together at Spike TV's Scream 2010 Awards and Manson gave him a big hug and was very friendly with him. If Manson showed no jealous rage in any of these circumstances, then who did he show jealous rage for and what exactly was the circumstance? This is too vague to even comment further on.

"I was told 'no one would ever love me like him,' 'no one would want me if I left him,' and 'he would kill anyone who touched me.'"

My last comment covers much of the accusations here. At the same time, assuming this was true, in a romantic, passionate relationship sometimes jealousy does pop up and things are said in an extreme fashion if feelings are hurt. This is something most people who have been in love can relate to in certain ways, so for this to even be brought up and equated with abuse is ridiculous.

"His demands became unreachable, and nothing I did was ever good enough. I would run around the house all day trying to solve the 'problems,' to fix whatever made him mad, but it only caused more abuse."

I would love to hear little, innocent, naive, blameless "18 year old" Evan explain how she tried to solve Manson's real and truly difficult 38 year old problems. And if he did have problems, why did she think it was about herself? Why does Evan have to make everything about herself? Why is she such a narcissist? If it was about her, then what exactly did Manson think she didn't do enough of? Surely Evan's abuser may have another opinion about this? We haven't been told any of this. Coming out against your abuser without naming your abuser opens the possibility of you abusing every situation and narrative. Everything is so vague, as if Evan is trying to manipulate her listeners into creating the worst possible scenarios in their minds when she herself never even comes close to painting a scenario. She wants her abuser to be seen as a monster and she wants very badly to be justified by making herself a victim, a perfect girlfriend and fiance who tried to do everything right as he was doing everything wrong. Did Manson ever ask her to solve his problems? Maybe if "18 year old" Evan got involved in Manson's 38 year old business too much, it pissed him off. "It only caused more abuse"...what? You haven't even talked about abuse, you have only been vague and manipulated your audience into creating scenarios of abuse you never explained.

"I ended up adopting the persona of the person he wanted me to be and losing myself completely. It became my new normal. I did this for survival, to avoid an explosion. I became numb and went along with whatever he wanted me to, managing to smile and drowning in gallows humor. Years later, my therapist would identify some of my behavior as Stockholm Syndrome."

This is actually pretty humorous. Here Evan is again following the textbook signs of what an abuser is and making desperately sure that she fits Manson right in. The truth of the matter is, the only thing Evan is doing here is trying to answer for the fact that she spoke so positively about Manson and her relationship with him in interviews the whole time they were together and for years after, and that the only way she can account for it is by saying that Manson twisted her mind to such a degree that she felt forced to do it, against her will. Basically, Evan is saying to her audience that they are a bunch of fools, complete morons, dumbasses, because you would have to be a very stupid person to believe this complete twisting of the facts done by Evan. If this is true, as she describes it, then basically it can be true for any relationship, which means that if you went up to someone and asked how their relationship with so and so is, and they replied positively, then you should not trust the answer because years later their therapist may convince them that during this relationship, which is now over, they had Stockholm Syndrome, which basically means nothing they ever said about their relationship while they were in the relationship, or even for some years after, is not true. Real Stockholm Syndrome does not make excuses for laughing at a joke or smiling at gallows humor. Evan has always liked gallows humor. She still does to this day. Look at all her films, which are filled with gallows humor. What about the fact that just a few years ago she said she thought rape jokes were funny as long as they were funny? Or her Me Too skit on Funny or Die? There is no difference in the persona of Evan Rachel Wood while she was with Manson with what she was before or what she was after. The only difference came in 2016 when she became radicalized into a far left activist woke fascist mentality and lost everything that was good about her soul.

"I witnessed my abuser threatening people with force, or legal action, if he worried they would expose him in any way. He bragged about being able to have people killed because he was allegedly friends with multiple gangs, and I watched him illegally collect data on people that he could use as blackmail."

Vague, vague, vague. Vague to the point of meaninglessness. The only thing this serves is Evan once again manipulating her listeners to form an image of an evil man in their minds and to cover her ass when the time comes for Manson to bring legal action against Evan and others for defamation - that's it. You can't make a judgment call on accusations without specifications. Which is exactly what Evan wants. In true fascist form, she only wants you to make judgment calls and she knows that in order to win the listener on her side, she has to avoid at all costs the specifications. These accusations are therefore meaningless.

"By the time I realized I was in a bad situation, I felt completely trapped and terrified for my life."

Which was when exactly? When you were cheating on Manson and getting pregnant? How exactly did Manson do this? Evan sounds like a paranoid child who makes no sense.

"He gifted me a cell phone, which I found out he was monitoring. He downloaded spyware onto my computer and hacked into my emails and social media accounts, so I could not reach out for help. When my friends and family tried to intervene, I swiftly told them to leave and that I was fine, because I was afraid of what he would do."
Suddenly Evan has friends again, and not only are her friends with her in this scenario, but her family is with her too, which means she is not isolated. In fact, it sounds like a big party. So during this party where all her friends and family were gathered ... wait a minute ... didn't we just read she could not reach out for help, and then she suddenly jumps to telling a bunch of people to leave her presence? Did Evan just contradict herself within two sentences? I can't understand this any other way. It makes absolutely no sense. I think when Evan wrote this she may have skipped some medication for her mental illnesses, because her lies are becoming more and more blurred as we go on. Now if any of the above is true, then somebody had to figure out for her she was so thoroughly hackesd, which means there should be evidence for it. These accusations should not be taken seriously until the evidence is presented.

"He broke me down through means of starvation, sleep deprivation, and threats against my life, sometimes with deadly weapons, which would result in me having severe panic attacks where I was unable to breathe or stop shaking."

Vague, vague, vague. All of this is "starving" for the context which it is "deprived" of. Again, accusations without specifications are worthless and meaningless and only serve the one who uses them to draw vague pictures in people's brains that they in turn make into elaborate scenarios that have nothing to with reality, but which help the accuser make the accused sound as evil as possible.

"By the time I realized I was in a bad situation, I felt completely trapped and terrified for my life.

If I tried to sleep, he would throw things at me, or instruct me to do drugs, which would disorient me, and keep me awake, sometimes for days. Once I was weakened by no sleep and little food, he would sometimes force me to partake in acts of fear, pain, torture, and humiliation, which he would videotape and which I felt powerless to stop.

Only after the acts were done, was I allowed to sleep. In some of these tapes he can be heard threatening to kill me, threatening my friends, or threatening to kill members of my family.

He also threatened to leak parts of the footage, or photographs he had taken, as a way to keep me quiet."

These are all clearly fabrications. You know these are fabrications because she is trying to tell the listener she had no power over her will and that Manson controlled every aspect of her life. The truth of the matter is, Manson and Evan were hardly ever together alone long enough for any of this to be true. Also, under no circumstance does one lose the ability to choose to eat if one is hungry. She never explains Manson preventing her from going grocery shopping, ordering a pizza, or having some Chinese food delivered. We also know that Evan did drugs before Manson and long after, so to say he instructed her to do so is Evan just removing herself from any responsibility over her drug habits. We know that she liked to do cocaine, and consuming a large amount can certainly keep you up for a few days, but this doesn't mean Manson made her snort it. There is room in all these scenarios for Evan choosing these things. As for the videotaped acts of "fear, pain, torture and humiliation", we know Evan is talking about the harmless filming Manson did for his videos and films with Evan and other women which she enthusiastically participated in, based on testimonies of people who were there. They weren't real acts, but performances, and the filming did take place late at night and in the early morning, because those are Manson's hours of operation, which everyone knows. At the end of the day, she is bringing all this up for what she says in the last sentence, because she knows that Manson has a lot of evidence to prove his innocence and that show she is a liar, so she is basically forming an alibi by drawing up a narrative by which all of Manson's evidence can be seen from her perspective and not his. This is another manipulation technique Evan likes to employ.

"I mustered the courage to leave several times, but he would call my house incessantly and threaten to kill himself. On one occasion, I returned to try and defuse the situation, he cornered me in our bedroom, and asked me to kneel. Then he tied me up by my hands and feet. Once I was restrained he beat me and shocked sensitive parts of my body with a torture device called a violet wand. To him it was a way for me to prove my loyalty. The pain was excruciating. It felt like I left my body and a part of me died that day. The worst part was I still felt it was somehow my fault. Society had told me: 'I should just leave when someone hits me,' but this was so much more complicated and so much scarier than anything had ever prepared me for. I didn't know what to call it."

And here we have another contradiction. Remember when I said that Manson and Evan hardly saw each other. One of the many reasons they hardly saw each other is because Manson had her own place in Malibu, even after she moved in with Manson. Evan is here confessing that Manson did not isolate her, because she is here choosing to leave, and she would be at her own house getting his calls. Basically she is trying to fit into her narrative something Manson said in interviews in the summer of 2009, that he called Evan 158 times and for every call he would would scar himself on his hands and face, a total of 158 times. I have already debunked this, and Manson's spokesperson has confirmed that this statement had nothing to do with reality but was about album promotion for The High End of Low. But Evan wants people to be believe this story Manson told to promote his album is true, as Manson at the time also wanted people to believe, but now we know it wasn't true.

Now let's get to another contradiction - "he cornered me in our bedroom"? Wait a minute, at one point Evan is at her house, and now she is in their bedroom? Then she talks about getting shocked by a sex toy that is made to lightly shock for sexual pleasure, and this shock made a part of herself die that day!? None of this makes sense. The pain is not excruciating to the point of feeling you have died. This just shows that Evan has never experienced the violet wand, but Manson probably had one is now trying to use it as evidence against him, or maybe he used it for a music video or film.  If you want to see what a violet wand does, watch this video here and this video here. And keep in mind, this all supposedly took place in 2009, which means that Evan would eventually accept his proposal for marriage about six months later, but Evan in none of her accusations ever mentions the fact that she ever became engaged to her abuser. This is part of the convenience of not naming your abuser - you can add lies and drop facts at will and no one will notice.

"After this incident, I continued to play along with whatever he wanted, enduring constant, daily abuse, and, on occasion, rape, until I found a way to escape safely."

Evan has specifically stated that she has only been raped twice, once by Manson and once by an anonymous bartender. In Phoenix Rising, Evan says that her rape was filmed for the music video to 'Heart-Shaped Glasses'. Here, Evan is now saying that Manson often raped her. Also, after the violet wand incident, if we were to follow the timeline, Manson and Evan broke up for about six months till Evan joined him on tour in Europe, and Manson proposed to her in Paris in December of 2009. Basically, Evan is here caught in another lie to fit her abuse narrative. She is trying to deny that she and Manson were in an off and on relationship in order to not have to explain why they kept getting back together.

"Once I was finally out of my abuser's control, I did whatever I could to feel safe, which meant putting time and space between me, him, and the abuse. The shame is still overwhelming.

It's taken all of my strength to speak publicly and to pursue this. The fear of being judged by society is debilitating and the fear of retaliation from my abuser is paralyzing. By speaking to you today and every day, I put myself at risk, as I have no protection. I have had to go through intense therapy to even fully understand what has happened to me. I have been diagnosed with complex PTSD, including disassociation, panic attacks, night terrors, agoraphobia, impulse control, chronic pain in my body, among other symptoms.

I am still in the process of working through this."

This all may sound fine within the context of not having named your abuser, but when you look back on this in light of knowing she is talking about Manson, it just sounds more and more ridiculous. It's funny how she becomes paranoid and scared for her life after she is diagnosed with a number of mental illnesses, yet before she wasn't and would walk openly everywhere. Also, if she is scared, why not get protection, if not for herself, then for her child? Jaime Bell complained about this as well. She is rich enough to buy a lot of protection if she wants. But it is better for her narrative if she is seen to be a scared victim, with a threat over her looming, in order to provoke sympathy from her listeners. As for her many mental illnesses, most of these she spoke about before she met Manson, and probably, if they are real, and there is enough room for doubt that they are real, then they probably have a lot more to do with her parents and her being raised in the Hollywood system than anything to do with Manson. In fact, while Evan dated Manson, she often spoke about how Manson helped her deal with past issues and transition to adulthood.

"The final push into creating the Phoenix Act was the crushing realization, years later, that he had done this to several people, and it was very likely there were more victims. I tried to take my evidence to the state, through a lawyer, in an attempt to stop this from happening to anyone else.

I have lived with the silence and shame for too long and it has been unbearable.

My evidence, which is vast and includes photographs and video, not just reliant on memory, can not be viewed by the state because the Statute of Limitations on my case has run out.

I have lived with the silence and shame for too long and it has been unbearable. It has taken years from my life because I was too afraid to tell anyone. I know that this bill will not affect my case, but I urge you to vote yes on the Phoenix Act to create a cushion for victims to leave their dangerous situations, get the help they need, and come back from their trauma, in order to pursue justice and stop serial abusers as long as they have undeniable evidence. We do not wish to create new laws or harsher punishments, only more time if the evidence meets the criteria we are putting forward. Thank you for your time and for hearing us today."

So far we have yet to see any of this vast evidence Evan speaks of, and since she has taken her case to the court of social media, which should be illegal if it is your fault you allowed the statute of limitations to run out on your case, she should post it all and let us examine the evidence for ourselves. What is she waiting for? What is she so afraid of? For how long does she think the whole world will rest on her every word?
