Manson has been accused of sexual assault by several women in the past year.
Marilyn Manson and Justin Bieber joined Kanye West for the rapper’s Sunday service concert on Halloween.
Kanye West — who has legally changed his name to Ye — put on his first full concert in eighteen months, flanked by his Sunday Service choir, Manson, Bieber and Roddy Ricch. The concert cost $10 to live stream on Thriller and the Fite TV app.
Bieber appeared alongside Ye and the Sunday Service choir to perform cuts from the rapper’s latest album Donda. The Canadian sang ‘No Child Left Behind,’ ‘Hurricane,’ ‘Moon’ and ‘Come to Life,’ along with some of his own hits.
Roddy Ricch performed ‘Pure Souls’ and some of his own songs as Manson made his second live appearance with Ye after the Donda listening party in Chicago. The singer is currently facing multiple sexual assault lawsuits from several women.
Ye controversially brought out Manson and DaBaby — who faced criticism for homophobic comments he made at Rolling Loud — at the Chicago listening event. The pair appeared on ‘Jail Pt. 2’ off Donda and Manson was credited as a songwriter on the track as well as ‘Jail’ from the record.
Manson’s ex-partner and Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood accused the musician of sexual abuse along with four other women back in February. “I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail,” she 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,” she wrote. Several other women have since come forward saying that Manson abused them.
Manson has denied the claims against him and called them “horrible distortions of reality.”
“My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth,” he wrote on Instagram after the five women came forward in February.
Ye released his tenth studio album Donda earlier this year. The 27 track album contained high profile features from The Weeknd, Lil Baby, Jay-Z, Travis Scott and many more. The record went to number one in the album charts in Ireland before being usurped by Drake’s Certified Lover Boy a week later.
