Marilyn Manson’s penalty for pursuing failed defamation and emotional distress allegations against actress Evan Rachel Wood and artist Illma Gore increased significantly on 2/15 when L.A. County Superior Court Judge Teresa A. Beaudet ordered Manson (Brian Warner) to pay an additional $169,408 to compensate Gore’s lawyers.

That, plus the $326,956 Manson must also pay for Wood’s legal fees, puts the total in the neighborhood of a half-million dollars.

Manson sued Wood and Gore in ’22 for casting him “as a rapist and abuser” in the public eye and claimed the “malicious falsehood” had “derailed” his music, TV, and film career.
