Reznor, Oscar-winning composer and leader of the revolutionary industrial band Nine Inch Nails, wants the world to know that he did not physically and sexually assault a woman with Marilyn Manson, as the shock rocker claims in his 1998 autobiography, The Long Hard Road From Hell.
Trent Reznor was Manson’s mentor and helped Marilyn’s career reach such a peak. In the early 1990s, Reznor rented and lived at 10050 Cielo Drive, the house where the Manson family was murdered. There he set up a recording studio he called “The Pig,” with sinister messages written in the blood of their victims, in reference to the Manson killers.

10050 Cielo Drive is the house Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate were renting when members of the Manson family cult broke in and brutally murdered five people, including Sharon Tate and his eight-month-old son, who was murdered while still in the womb. Sharon Tate, Abigail Folger (heiress to the Folger coffee company) Wojciech Frykowski, Stephen Parent and famous hairdresser Jay Sebring died.
Also in the early 1990s, Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids made headlines in Florida as an underground band. Trent Reznor had a vision for Manson’s music and they began working together.
While Trent Reznor was living in a house whose murders were attributed to the end of the hippie generation, Marilyn Manson was achieving fame. The band, formed in 1989, was working on their debut album, tentatively titled The Manson Family Album. Manson didn’t like the way the album’s production was progressing, and he signed to Trent Reznor’s Nothing Records label.
Amber Heard has been candid about Johnny Depp’s domestic violence abuse.
Manson and the band (except for Gidget Gain) left Florida for Los Angeles and accompanied Trent Reznor to the house where some of the most gruesome celebrity murders in America took place. There they reworked the album and renamed it from “Manson family” to “Portrait of an American Family.” This is Marilyn Manson’s first studio album.
Below is a Video Clip of Trent Reznor with Nine Inch Nails featuring Marilyn Manson on the 1992 song “Gave Up,” filmed at 10050 Cielo Drive (the house has since been torn down). It is believed that Trent Reznor still owns the front door to the infamous house.
Trent Reznor and Marilyn Manson did not have a perfectly harmonious working environment or friendship. Reznor began to grow and they had many disagreements in public; however, Manson remained with the Reznor label until his death in 2004.
As abuse allegations against Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Hugh Warner) have surfaced, an excerpt from her 1998 autobiography “The Long Hard Road Out of Hell” is making its way onto Social Media generating interest and attention.
In fact, everything Manson wrote in his autobiography is being watched because the culture of cancellation for the Grammy-nominated artist is there, and they are collecting money!
Manson spoke of a number of alleged situations that, if true, are criminal in nature. Even Corey Feldman was mentioned in the book, prompting the former actor and child abuse activist to come forward publicly.
In the book, Marilyn Manson recounts an incident in which he and Trent Reznor allegedly assaulted a drunken, incoherent woman.
Here is an excerpt from his book.

Trent’s supporters are already looking to past interviews to show that Trent was angry at Marilyn Manson for the release and the comments he made.
Here is an interview from the past in which Trent Reznor said he and Manson had problems before they reconciled and released a new video.
For those who were talking about stopping @trent_reznor because of the disgusting passage in Brian “MM” Warner’s book (it was written by a ghostwriter, by the way), Trent was not happy to be dragged into this adventure, even then. The reason he literally took it out of his life then pic.twitter.com/va681VTcWJ

Trent issued a statement to Pitchfork denying the allegations and further distancing himself from Marilyn Manson.
He said the following.
Over the years, I have spoken of my dislike for Manson as a person and cut off contact with him almost 25 years ago As I said then, the excerpt from Manson’s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was angry and offended when it came out and I still am.
Trent Reznor distanced himself from Marilyn Manson in a statement, calling the story that surfaced in Manson’s 1998 book “completely fabricated.” https://t.co/NdILKFqVh0

What do you think about Marilyn Manson’s allegations of abuse and the excerpts from his book in which he and Trent Reznor sexually abused a woman? Do you believe Trent Reznor’s claim that the passage was a complete fabrication?
