Marilyn Manson has hired a security team that is available 24 hours a day, reports OK! Magazine. The 52-year-old singer no longer feels safe, according to sources, after several women have accused him of abuse, violence and oppression.
“Marilyn is not taking any risks with regard to his safety. He fears that there are suddenly people on the doorstep who want evil and that should prevent his bodyguards,” said a source, adding that the singer has always been quite paranoid, but that this is a completely different situation. Manson would have been deeply affected by the allegations against him, according to the source.
Since actress Evan Rachel Wood announced via social media in early February that she had been abused and mistreated for years, more women followed with similar stories. Manson has not been seen in public since then, although before that he lived more in the night hours and often slept during the day. According to the source, he keeps it that way for the time being and does not want to be seen in public.
After the stories about Manson broke out, both his record company and management the singer put aside. His wife Lindsay Usich, some friends, his assistant and his legal team are the people who still surround him today.
