Esme Bianco was the last woman to publicly accuse Marilyn Manson of abuse. For Esme, her accusations involve a different scenario than that of the women who say they have been out with the singer. Because Esme lived in the UK and came to the US to star in a Marilyn Manson video, she is accusing the 52-year-old shock rocker of human trafficking. She said in an official Instagram post that people need to rethink the definition of human trafficking and noted that intimate partners, boyfriends and spouses can also be involved in human trafficking.
Esme met Marilyn Manson through a friendship with his ex-wife, Dita Von Teese. They met in 2005 and have maintained a friendship with Dita and Marilyn Manson over the following years. In 2007 Dita Von Teese left Manson and continued her friendship with Esme. Esme described their friendship as flirty but platonic, and they married in 2008.

Esme lived in the UK with her husband and concentrated on her career. In 2009, she claimed that Manson invited her to come to Los Angeles to record a film and music video with him. She met Marilyn Manson and now claims, in retrospect, that he abused his BDSM techniques under the guise of making a video. When the filming was over, she returned to England with her husband, but she was still in love with Manson and wanted to please him.
Although Esme says her first encounters with Marilyn Manson were abusive, she kept in touch with Manson via email. They would have met for a sex date if their schedules allowed. Two years later, in 2011, Bianco left her husband and moved in with Marilyn Manson because she thought they were soul mates. In an interview with Cut, Esme said the abuse only got worse and she was gone within two months.

Esme issued the following statement on Instagram.
I’m calling the man who raped and betrayed me. His name is Marilyn Manson, born Brian Hugh Warner. I am coming forward after years of living with the unimaginable trauma I suffered at the hands of the serial predator known to many as Marilyn Manson. I speak on my own terms now and I share this story because he needs to be held accountable. No one should ever have to go through what I – and so many other survivors – went through. It is important for all of us to understand that intimate partners, boyfriends and spouses can be violent and become victims of human trafficking. We need to dispel the misconceptions about human trafficking because it can affect anyone, just as it has affected me.
