Marilyn Manson Dropped by Longtime Manager Tony Ciulla in the Wake of Abuse Allegations

As the fallout surrounding the abuse allegations against Marilyn Manson continues, the shock rocker has now reportedly lost his manager of more than two decades.

Tony Ciulla — who has managed Manson for the last 25 years — has severed ties with the musician, sources close to the situation have confirmed to Rolling Stone.

Ciulla began managing Manson way back in 1996, which was the same year the artist released his hugely successful Antichrist Superstar album.

And while the manager worked alongside the musician through multiple controversies and lawsuits, the abuse allegations brought forward by actress Evan Rachel Wood and four other women have apparently proved to be too much for him.

When Rolling Stone reached out to Ciulla about no longer working with Manson, the manager declined to comment.

As previously reported, Wood released a statement this week stating Manson has "horrifically abused" her during their relationship, as well as "brainwashed and manipulated [her] into submission." Four other women also brought claims of abuse against Manson.

Following those claims, Manson was dropped by his label and cut from various TV appearances. His alleged actions have also been denounced by Trent Reznor, former bandmate Wes Borland and ex-fiancée Rose McGowan

However, Manson ex-wife Dita Von Teese shared that the "details made public do not match [her] personal experience," while he issued his own statement earlier this week denying all claims of abuse and calling them "horrible distortions of reality."
