Marilyn Manson requested that a judge throw out Esmé Bianco’s sexual assault lawsuit against him.
Manson — born Brian Hugh Warner — called Bianco’s claims “untrue” and “meritless” and suggested they are “a key component of a coordinated attack” by women who want to “dishonestly seek to monetize and exploit the #MeToo movement,” per federal court documents obtained by Page Six Thursday.
The singer, 52, alleged that the “Game of Thrones” alum, 39, and other unnamed women “spent months plotting, workshopping and fine-tuning their stories to turn what were consensual friendships and relationships with [him] from more than a decade ago into twisted tales that bear no resemblance to reality.”
He then claimed that they are “desperately trying to conflate the imagery and artistry of [his] ‘shock rock’ stage persona, Marilyn Manson, with fabricated accounts of abuse.”
Manson argued that even if Bianco’s allegations were true, she is not within the seven-year statute of limitations from when the alleged incident took place.
Bianco’s attorney did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on Manson’s latest claims.
The actress filed the lawsuit on April 30, accusing the Grammy nominee of drugging, torturing and sexually assaulting her between 2009 and 2011.
His attorney called the accusations “provably false” in May.
Just weeks later, Manson’s former assistant Ashley Walters sued him for sexual assault, battery and harassment.
More recently, the metal star surrendered himself to police earlier this month over an alleged “snot rocket” assault in 2019. He turned himself in for an assault on a videographer in June as well.
In response to the many allegations against him, Manson was dropped by his record label, talent agency and manager in addition to being removed from episodes of “American Gods” and “Creepshow.”
