Marilyn Manson's home raided by LA police as singer investigated for sexual assault after shocking claims

MARILYN Manson's home was raided by a Los Angeles police.

The raid comes as the singer is being investigated for sexual assault after shocking allegations.


A spokesperson for the LASD confirmed to The Sun that a residence owned by Marilyn had been search early Monday morning, but could not confirm the location of the property.

A full media statement is expected to be released on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, law enforcement sources told TMZ that Special Victims Unit detectives went to Marilyn's home in West Hollywood early on Monday morning with a search warrant.

According to the outlet, the 52-year-old was not home at the time of the raid.

Law enforcement was said to have forced entry into the home with a warrant.

Sources told TMZ that the search warrant is "in connection to ongoing probes into sexual assault allegations against Marilyn."

Police reportedly seized media storage units, including hard drives from the home.

The items taken will be be reviewed before the case is submitted to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

SELLING HIS HOME

The Sun exclusively revealed earlier this month that the controversial singer sold his Los Angeles home for $1.835million – banking $750K on the sale – amid a police investigation over sex assault claims.

The Beautiful People singer, who has faced controversy after a number of women came forward with similar claims of sexual and physical abuse, put the property on the market in October.

Property records seen by The Sun show he officially offloaded the house on November 16 for $85K more than the asking price of $1.75million.

The listing was held by Jon Grauman and Feroz Taj of The Agency.  

Marilyn bought the home back in 2013 for just $1,085,000, and will likely be pleased to have made money on the sale after his career took a hit and he was dropped by his record label.

CLAIMS AGAINST MARILYN

A number of women have claimed they were sexually and physically assaulted by the singer, including three who are suing him.

Meanwhile, one rape lawsuit was dismissed earlier this year.

Actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco are among those who claim to be his victims after alleged violent relationships.

Back in February, Evan claimed her ex-fiance "horrifically abused her for YEARS" and said she was desperate to "expose this dangerous man."

She has always been open about suffering abuse from a previous relationship, but had never revealed the partner's identity until this year.

Game of Thrones star Esme, who is also suing Marilyn, previously claimed the rock star had tied her down and whipped her, electrocuted her and cut her with a knife.

The singer has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, with his attorney saying Esme's claims are "provably false."

His former employee Ashley Walters, who worked as an assistant and for the star, also claimed he used "torture tactics" to control her.

POLICE INVESTIGATION

Marilyn is currently being investigated by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department for domestic violence, after 11 accusers came forward with similar claims.

The department confirmed to The Sun the investigation is still active, though they have not made an arrest.

The embattled star has denied the allegations and insisted all his romantic relationships have been "entirely consensual."

In a statement previously posted on Instagram, he said: "Obviously, my life and my art have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.

"My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth."

Marilyn has been dropped by his record label, Loma Vista Recordings, as the allegations emerged.

"Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects," the label told Variety in a statement.
