As unsavory allegations are lobbed at him, Marilyn Manson is reportedly taking steps to protect himself.
The Sun reports that the shock rocker has hired 24-hour bodyguards and hasn't left his house in weeks.
"Manson is worried about his safety and is not taking any risks. He's concerned about who might turn up at the house and has hired 24-hour security to watch out for him," a source told the U.K.-based tabloid. "He's paranoid at the best of times, but the allegations have really rocked him and he was adamant he needed protection."
The first domino in regard to Marilyn fell on Feb. 1 after his ex-fiancé Evan Rachel Wood alleged that he abused her.
"He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail," the "Westworld" actress wrote on Instagram. "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."
Other women soon came forward with accusations of physical and sexual abuse. As the accusations built, Marilyn's team crumbled. On Feb. 1, Loma Vista Recordings dropped him from its roster. On Feb 2, his talent agency, CAA, also cut ties with him. Marilyn's longtime manager also parted with him.
Marilyn has denied the abuse allegations and said all intimate activity was consensual.
The Sun said the singer has been spending time with his personal assistant, his wife, Lindsay Usich, and members of his legal team.
"Manson still has close friends and team members who have been with him for years and are worried about him, but a lot of people have turned their backs," the insider told The Sun. "He is unsure of what's to come regarding his career and is keeping an incredibly low profile. Manson has always been a hermit who often sleeps in the day and parties or paints at night into the early hours, so it's unlikely he'll be seen in public for a while."
