Industrial metal legend, Marilyn Manson split with his longtime bassist and guitarist, Jeordie White after he was accused of rape. On Twitter, Manson wrote, “I have decided to part ways with Jeordie White as a member of Marilyn Manson. He will be replaced for the upcoming tour. I wish him well.” He also took to Instagram, saying, “This is a sad day.” Jeordie White’s Instagram and Twitter accounts are currently private, so unless you are already following him, it is a mystery as to what his comments are on the subject on social media. He did, however, release a statement, writing, “I wish to spend this time with my family and focus on maintaining my several years of sobriety. I will be taking a leave of absence from Marilyn Manson and regrettably will not be performing on the upcoming tour.”
Jeordie White Rape Allegations
It all started when Jessicka Addams, singer of punk rock band Jack Off Jill, accused him of raping and abusing her in an October 20th post on Facebook. “I have lived with the overwhelming shame and guilt of being raped for well over 20 years now. Like many survivors, I unknowingly hid an abusive relationship in a most unhealthy way, masking it behind a fun loving, creatively artistic facade I struggled to wear on the outside world,” she wrote. “I did not want him to own the power I assumed was his in every unwarranted encounter, so I eventually compartmentalized the recurring nightmares of running into my rapist, Jeordie White.”
In her lengthy and well thought-out post she explained her relationship with White, including his abusive and manipulative behaviors. “Not only did he abuse me, but he also managed to unapologetically take an identity that I created for myself, and run with this as his own.” She also shared her support for women who have experienced similar things. “To those of you who are reading this and it has allowed you to come to terms with your demons, I am sending you all of the love in my heart, the support I can offer, and the respect you all so deserve.”
