If you’ve been paying any attention to celebrity gossip in recent weeks, you know that Marilyn Manson’s reputation has taken quite a nosedive.
And that’s really saying something, as the shock rocker didn’t enjoy the greatest reputation to begin with.
Manson’s troubles began when actress Evan Rachel Wood accused him abusing her over the course of their four-year romantic relationship.
The couple began dating back in 2006 when Wood was just 19 years old and Manson was 36.
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” Wood’s statement read.
“I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail,” she continued.
“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.
After Wood alleged that she had suffered intense trauma as a result of the relationship, four other women accused Manson of similar atrocities.
These days — with his career in ruins and the possibility of criminal charges looming — Manson is reportedly living in seclusion, overwhelmed by intense paraoia.
“Manson is worried about his safety and is not taking any risks,” a source close to the situation tells UK tabloid The Sun.
“He’s concerned about who might turn up at the house and has hired 24-hour security to watch out for him,” the insider adds.
“He’s paranoid at the best of times, but the allegations have really rocked him and he was adamant he needed protection.”
While many of Manson’s friends and colleagues — including his longtime manager — have distanced themselves from him in recent weeks, it seems that a handful of sycophants have remained.
“Manson still has close friends and team members who have been with him for years and are worried …read more

At this point in most new administrations, all eyes are on the White House. A new team is rolling into Washington, eager to put its mark on politics and eager to get going on campaign trail promises to undo what came before. Presidential appointments, the first address to Congress, the big-ticket projects like health care or education — these typically give newspaper editors their Page One stories for weeks and capture the public’s attention.
As Joe Biden gets ready to hit the one-month mark of his presidency on Saturday, his early moves are not consuming all of the political oxygen in Washington. Congress’ failed attempt to ban former President Donald Trump from ever returning to power came up short over the long weekend, even as it was abundantly clear that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has zero interest in bringing him back to power. Conservative media has been overrun both by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s latest scandal and an emerging denialism that the failed insurrection at the heart of Trump’s second impeachment even happened.
Yes, you read that correctly: Jan. 6 denialism is becoming a thing. Laura Ingraham devoted a five-minute segment last night on her Fox News show to float the theory that the Jan. 6 attacks didn’t happen as we believe them to have, the Democrats manufactured evidence of it and that Nancy Pelosi needs to answer for the chaos that really was just a hoax.
“She clearly doesn’t want to answer what happened and what her roles and responsibilities — …read more

Police are now calling the disappearance of Conzuelo “Nicole” Solorio-Romero, 25, of Kearns, a homicide investigation. Two people were arrested in connection with the case Monday. | Unified Police Department
KEARNS — Two people have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a Kearns woman a week ago — a case that people are now calling a homicide.
As of Tuesday, however, the body of Conzuelo “Nicole” Solorio-Romero, 25, has not been found.
Orlando Tobar, 29, and Jorge Medina, 21, were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Monday night for investigation of aggravated murder and aggravated kidnapping.
On Feb. 6, Solorio-Romero, 25, was forcibly taken from her home near 5000 West and 5400 South. She was taken at gunpoint or at knifepoint from just outside of her home, according to a police affidavit.
Police believe she was taken to a residence in West Valley City “by suspects only known as Chaparro and the Venezuelan,” the affidavit states. Once inside, “one witness stated that they observed the victim being shot in the head. The witness was unclear if it was Chaparro or the Venezuelan.”
Chaparro then allegedly told witnesses that if they spoke to anyone, “they would have to kill them too. One witness stated the victim was loaded into the back of Chaparro’s vehicle and she was never seen again. One witness stated he received a call from Chaparro stating the victim didn’t die from the initial shot and had to shoot her again,” the affidavit states.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons (25) looks for a foul after being knocked to the court during the 76ers-Utah Jazz NBA basketball game at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021. | Steve Griffin, Deseret News
Following the Philadelphia 76ers’ 134-123 loss to the Utah Jazz Monday night in Salt Lake City, 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons was asked how he liked being guarded at times by Jazz All-Star center and two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.
Simmons, who scored a career-high 42 points to go along with 12 assists and nine rebounds, offered a rather bold answer.
“Yeah, I loved when I saw Rudy was guarding me,” he said, chuckling. “I mean, I love being able to go at somebody like that. I felt like it was a little bit of disrespect putting him on me, but it is what it is.”
The Simmons-Gobert matchup came as Philadelphia’s All-Star center Joel Embiid was a late scratch from the lineup because of tightness in his back.
Always one to use perceived slights to motivate himself, Gobert followed his usual custom of “liking” numerous tweets that noted Simmons’ comments.
