Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White Releases New Statement in Response to Rape Allegations

0

This morning, we learned that Marilyn Manson has parted ways with longtime bassist Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White following recent allegations that White raped his ex-girlfriend, Jack Off Jill vocalist Jessicka Adams, when they were dating in the ’90s. At the time that White’s presumed-firing was announced, the bassist released the following statement:

“I wish to spend this time with my family and focus on maintaining my several years of sobriety. i will be taking a leave of absence from marilyn manson and regrettably will not be performing on the upcoming tour.”

The PRP now reports that White has released an ever-so-slightly different statement — one that actually acknowledges the accusations against White:

“I have only recently been made aware of these allegations from over 20 years ago. I do not condone non-consensual sex of any kind. I will be taking some time to spend with my family and focus on maintaining my several years of sobriety. If i have caused anyone pain i apologize and truly regret it.”

We will of course continue to follow this story as it develops.
