Another former girlfriend of Marilyn Manson has filed a lawsuit against the musician. The woman, listed on the legal filing as Jane Doe, accuses him of raping and threatening to kill her, as well as showing her a video which she alleges showed him attacking a young fan.

The lawsuit says that the woman and Manson began dating in 2011, initially enjoying a good relationship. The turning point, she says, came when he showed her a video which he called ‘Groupie’ and kept locked in a safe. She claims that it was filmed backstage at a show in 1996, and features a young female fan being tied to a chair, forced to drink urine and being threatened with a gun.

However, a source has told both Pitchfork and TMZ that the video was actually a “scripted short film” made with director Joseph Cultice for a project that was ultimately not released.

Manson was also sued last month by former assistant Ashley Walters, who accuses him of sexual harassment, abuse and battery. Meanwhile in April he was sued by ‘Game Of Thrones’ actor and former girlfriend Esmé Bianco, who accuses him of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. He was also accused of abuse by another former girlfriend, actor Evan Rachel Wood.

He has previously denied the accusations made by Bianco and Wood, but has not yet commented on any of the recent lawsuits.
