Following Wood's allegations and those of four other women, Loma Vista Recordings said it was no longer working with Manson.

It said in a statement: "In light of today's disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately.

In response, Marilyn Manson has described allegations he was abusive to Evan Rachel Wood as "horrible distortions of reality" and that his relationships "have always been entirely consensual".

In a statement shared on Instagram, he said: "Obviously, my art and my life 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."

In a further development, US TV network Starz said Manson's guest appearance in fantasy drama American Gods will be removed from an upcoming episode.

The network said: "Due to the allegations made against Marilyn Manson, we have decided to remove his performance from the remaining episode he is in, scheduled to air later this season. Starz stands unequivocally with all victims and survivors of abuse."

And AMC has pulled an episode of horror anthology series Creepshow that was set to feature Manson, according to Deadline.

Manson's most recent album released through Loma Vista Recordings was 2020's We Are Chaos, which reached number seven in the UK charts and eight in the US.

Manson found fame in the 1990s and became known for his distinctive appearance.
