Last Friday, we reported on accusations of domestic abuse and sexual assault levied against Jeordie White—a.k.a. Twiggy Ramirez, the long-time bass player for Marilyn Manson’s band—by Jack Off Jill singer Jessica Addams. Addams’ account described a long-standing pattern of emotional and physical abuse on White’s part over the course of a long-term romantic relationship, culminating in an act of assault.
At the time Addams’ story came to light, Manson issued a largely non-committal statement, writing, “I considered and still consider Jessicka to be a friend. I knew nothing about these allegations until very recently and am saddened by Jessicka’s obvious distress.” Tonight, though, he took a much firmer stance, declaring that he and White had now “parted ways.”
White first joined Manson’s band in 1993, and has toured with him off-and-on for the last 24 years. He’s also played with bands like A Perfect Circle and Nine Inch Nails.
