Now, several of Manson's alleged victims have come forward to show support for Smithline telling her full story.
Actor Evan Rachel Wood — Manson's ex-fiancé who has alleged that he "horrifically abused" and "manipulated" her during their relationship — posted the People cover to her Instagram story with the message "I stand with you @ashleylindsaymorgan."
According to People, actor Esmé Bianco — who previously described Manson as "a monster who almost destroyed me" — also shared words of support for Smithline on her Instagram story: "Thank you for being so brave," she posted.
As reported earlier this week, Bianco is also suing Manson for rape and abuse, alleging that he "used drugs, force, and threats of force to coerce sexual acts" out of Bianco, at times "when she was unconscious or otherwise unable to consent."
