The record label issued the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter: "In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately. Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”

Evan Rachel Wood took to Instagram on Monday morning and named Marilyn Manson as her abuser. “The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” she wrote.

“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

In 2018, Wood testified before the House Judiciary Committee in an effort to secure a bill of rights for sexual assault survivors across the country. She told her story of domestic violence and sexual assault and called it “a mental scar that I feel every day.”

"My experience with domestic violence was this," Wood said, "the toxic mental, physical and sexual abuse which started slow but escalated over time, including threats against my life, severe gaslighting and brainwashing, waking up to the man that claimed to love me, raping what he believed to be my unconscious body.

Wood added: "Even though these experiences happened a decade ago, I still struggle with the aftermath. My relationship suffers, my partners suffer, my mental and physical health suffer. Seven years after my rapes — plural — I was diagnosed with long-term PTSD, which I had been living with all that time without knowledge about my condition. I simply thought I was going crazy."
