Former Marilyn Manson and longtime Limp Bizkit guitarist, Wes Borland has spoken out on the allegations faced by Marilyn Manson. Borland has come out to publicly state that he knows the allegations made against the rocker are true by claiming he was around when Evan Rachel Wood was dating Manson.
Five women, including Marilyn’s ex-girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood, recently accused Manson of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Wood posted her allegations of abuse against Manson on Instagram yesterday. She wrote that Manson had had been “grooming” her since she was a teenager and added that he had “horrifically abused me for years”.
Wood famously testified to Congress in 2018, detailing an abusive relationship to campaign for a sexual assault survivors bill. She initially left her ex-partner unnamed, but came forward on February 1st, identifying Marilyn Manson as her abuser.
Borland spent just a year with Marilyn Manson’s band, after joining in 2008, before re-joining Limp Biscuit. In a recent chat on Twitch channel, Space Zebra, the guitarist gave his verdict on the troubled metal head.
“Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months. He’s not a great guy,” Borland said. “Every single thing that people have said about him is f*****g true. So, relax about the allegations towards the women… like when people say [bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… f*** off, they are speaking the truth.

“I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this,” Borland continued. “But that guy, he’s amazingly talented, but he’s f****d up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad f*****g guy.”
“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood, I was at his house, it’s not f*****g cool,” revealed Borland. “That’s all I’m gonna say about it. If anyone is coming after these girls and going like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that,’ f*** you, that’s all I’m gonna say. Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is cancelled. Goodbye, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
Manson has been dropped from his record label Loma Vista Recordings, after Wood accused him of being abusive during their relationship. They were briefly engaged in 2010.
