Evan Rachel Wood alleges that the former abusive Marilyn Manson threatened her 8-year-old son “Jack,” according to court documents obtained by the Daily Mail.
The newspaper reported that the claim was made in an announcement made in April as part of the actress’s ongoing custody battle with ex-husband Jamie Bell.
The documents show that Manson’s alleged threats forced Wood, 34, to beef up security in her home — including installing bulletproof glass windows, and a steel door and fence — and move from Los Angeles (where Bill still resides) to Nashville.

She further claimed, “I’m so scared of the alleged perpetrator,” referring to Manson, 52, whom she dated from 2006 until 2010.
“I have suffered severe physical and emotional injuries and trauma on his hands, and I fear he will retaliate against me for testifying by harming me, my son and my family.”
Manson is currently under investigation over allegations of sexual assault and human trafficking after more than a dozen women – including Wood – accused him of misconduct.
Wood also alleged in the documents that another alleged victim of Manson recorded the musician, saying he took pictures of her children and even obtained Social Security numbers for the teens.

“I honestly don’t understand what’s going on,” he said. “Either Evan’s claims that she receives ‘death threats’ are true and that Jack is not safe in her care, or they are untrue and she is withholding our son from me on other grounds of inventing her.”
Representatives for Wood, Manson and Bell did not immediately respond to Big Six’s request for comment.
Bill Wood finalized their divorce in 2014. He married British actor Kate Mara in 2017.
Wood stated that Manson was her alleged abuser in February after claiming for years that she had been abused by an unnamed ex.
“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and abused me horribly for years,” she claimed in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I have been brainwashed and manipulated into feeding. I have ended up living in fear of revenge, slander, or blackmail.”
Manson has vehemently denied all the allegations, calling them “appalling distortions of reality”.
“My intimate relationships have always been completely consensual with like-minded partners,” he wrote on Instagram in February. “No matter how—and why—others now choose to distort the past, that is the truth.”
