Marilyn Manson Ordered to Pay Evan Rachel Wood’s Legal Fees

    Marilyn Manson has been ordered to pay Evan Rachel Wood $326,956 to cover the legal fees the actress accrued while defending against his defamation and emotional distress claims previously removed from Manson’s still-pending lawsuit against her. According to Rolling Stone, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Teresa A. Beaudet eliminated a little over $60,000 of the original ask because some of the descriptions for billed hours were too “vague.”

    Manson filed the instigating defamation lawsuit in March of last year, claiming that Wood and her friend Illma Gore, her friend, decided to “publicly cast him as a rapist and abuser.” Though the case has mostly been dismissed, Wood and Gore are still facing claims they conspired to hack into Warner’s computer, impersonate him over the Internet, and make a “swatting” call for police to show up at his house.
