The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has executed a search warrant on an address associated with Brian Warner, aka Marilyn Manson, says Deputy Eva Jimenez of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau. TMZ and Rolling Stone report that Warner was not home at the time of the search. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Manson for comment.
In February, the LASD opened an investigation into allegations of domestic violence incidents that occurred between 2009 and 2011, while Warner lived in West Hollywood. Within the past year, Warner has been served with multiple lawsuits alleging sexual assault and abuse. In September, one such suit was dismissed but quickly re-filed.
Marilyn Manson was recently nominated for multiple Grammy awards for his appearance on Kanye West’s Donda. Amid criticism, Grammys CEO Harvey Mason Jr. defended the nominations, saying “We won’t look at people’s history” when issuing awards.
