A former personal assistant of Marilyn Manson is the latest person to step forward with their own story of difficult scenes witnessed while in the rocker's immediate company.

Former keyboard tech turned personal assistant Dan Cleary recently discussed his experiences around Manson (real name Brian Warner) and his former girlfriend, actor Evan Rachel Wood. Wood has recently named Manson as the man who "started grooming" her when she was a teen and "horrifically abused" the actor for years.

On his Rare Form Radio podcast, Cleary who filled a personal assistant slot for the singer from 2014 to 2015 claims to have seen Wood’s torment first-hand while on tour with Manson between 2007 and 2008. "Her demeanor changed... Her physical looks changed. She got skinnier. Her whole, like, aura just became darker," Cleary explained of Wood. "I mean, I spoke to his manager about it, but the manager seemed to know all that and didn't really care a lot."

"There's people saying that I'm complicit because I saw this stuff happening and I didn't do anything -- and I’ll accept that," he admits. "There is some truth in that."

Cleary is just the latest in a line of denouncements from fellow musicians, as well as additional claims of abuse, notably from Game Of Thrones actor Esmé Bianco who stepped forward just last week with her own tales of horror allegedly inflicted by Manson during their time together.

Manson denies the allegations and insists his "intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners."

Manson had been dropped from his record label and television projects in the immediate aftermath of Wood's allegations, and more recently has been visited at his home by police. According to TMZ, a welfare check was made at his Los Angeles home last month and now reports that L.A. County Sheriff's detectives are planning to meet with one of Manson's alleged victims over the next few days.
