Marilyn Manson has been spotted during a rare outing in Hollywood with his much younger wife.
The 53-year-old heavy metal singer, whose real name is Brian Warner, stepped out with his long-term partner Lindsay Usich, 37, for dinner in the Californian city.
It’s understood the pair began dating in 2012, before tying the knot in 2020.
Manson, who is reportedly two years sober, cut a vastly different figure for the couple’s date night, where he was photographed sans his signature gothic make-up.
He wore an all-black casual outfit, while Usich wore an emerald green dress with a black jacket.
Manson has rarely been spotted publicly amid multiple sexual abuse allegations levelled against him over the past year, all of which he has denied.
It comes after Manson’s damning texts to Johnny Depp were exposed in documents seen by Daily Beast, which contained pages of evidence excluded from Depp’s trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
In a 2016 text, Manson allegedly wrote of his wife, “I got an amber 2.0” and also “Lindsay just puled an amber on me … please delete”.
Depp responds, “I been reading A LOT of material on that and sociopathic behavior … it is f***ing real my brother!! My ex-c**t is goddamn TEXTBOOK!!!” according to the document.
Then Manson, in an apparent reference to an incident where the police were called to Depp and Heard’s shared Los Angeles apartment in 2016, wrote, “I got a serious police amber type scenarios with L’s family.
“I’m f***ing stressing. I don’t know if you are back but I need asylum somewhere because I think the cops might be headed my way,” the filing states.
Manson’s former partner, US actress Evan Rachel Wood, has led claims against the goth rocker, including that he forced her to have sex with him while filming one of his music videos.
Wood named Manson as her alleged abuser for the first time in February 2021. They began dating in 2006, when she was 18 and he was 37.
The couple dated for four years, with Wood bringing to light allegations of sexual and emotional abuse years later, though it was only recently that she named Manson as her alleged abuser.
“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years,” Wood wrote on Instagram in February last year.
“I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail.
“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.
“I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
