Evan Rachel Wood Calls Out Her Ex Marilyn Manson During Live Performance

WASHINGTON — American actor and musician Evan Rachel Wood subtly called out her ex and alleged abuser Marilyn Manson during a recent live performance.

The Golden Globe-nominated star performed a cover of the New Radicals’ 1998 single “You Get What You Give” with her musical partner Zane Carney (of Evan + Zane) on Aug. 28, 2021, at the Bourbon Room in Los Angeles, United States, as per reports.


“I’ve been saving this, but it seems like the appropriate time,” she prefaced the song, which includes a reference to Manson. Wood put up her middle finger as she sang his name, to which the crowd erupted into cheers.

She posted the video of her five-minute performance on her Instagram handle.

“‘You get what you give.’ For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you. Don’t give up,” she wrote alongside the post.

Wood, a three-time Golden Globe nominee and one-half of the musical duo Evan+Zane, has accused Manson of sexual assault and other abuse, as per reports. Manson has denied the allegations leveled against him, calling them “horrible distortions of reality.”

Her performance occurred after Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West sparked controversy on Aug. 26, 2021, by inviting Manson to appear onstage with him at a Chicago, United States, listening event in support of his new album “Donda,” which dropped on Aug. 29, 2021.

Manson is listed as a co-writer on two of the tracks on West’s 10th studio album “Donda.”

Wood had used her Instagram Story to share an article about Manson’s appearance with the words, “Triggered, re-traumatized, and unsafe” written across the text.

After first opening up in 2016 about being sexually assaulted by a “significant other” and subsequently testifying in support of multiple pieces of legislation that protect survivors of sexual assault, Wood named Manson as her abuser in February 2021.

“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” Wood wrote at the time in an Instagram post.

“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail.”

“I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail.”

“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him before he ruins any more lives.”

“I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

Wood is one of at least 15 women who have accused Manson of sexual assault. Manson has denied all the allegations.

Manson, in July 2021, was released on personal recognizance bail after he turned himself in on an unsettled arrest warrant from 2019. The singer allegedly spat and blew snot on a videographer at a concert in New Hampshire and was slapped with assault charges post the incident.
