In February, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office opened an investigation into abuse claims that allegedly happened about 10 years ago, The Associated Press previously reported. No alleged victims have been publicly identified.

The 52-year-old singer, real name Brian Warner, has now allegedly been accused of sexual assault and physical abuse by more than 15 women, including his former fiancee actor Evan Rachel Wood, People Magazine reported.

Shortly after Wood’s initial accusations in February, Manson’s record label severed ties with him, as previously reported.

While he has not made any recent statements, Manson’s last post on Instagram proclaims his innocence saying, “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.”

Marilyn Manson was not home when sheriff’s deputies served the warrant, TMZ reported.
