Evan Rachel Wood Gives Up Custody Of Son After Alleged Marilyn Manson Threats

'Westworld' star Evan Rachel Wood has agreed to give up custody of her son, following alleged threats from Marilyn Manson after accusing the rocker of abuse.

According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, the actress and her ex-boyfriend -- Jamie Bell -- have agreed to have their 7-year-old son live with his father in Los Angeles. Wood resides in Nashville, Tennessee, and has been battling to keep her son out of L.A.

In the filing, Wood and Bell agree their son will "primarily live with (him) in Los Angeles, (Wood) shall have custody of Jack one (1) extended weekend per month from Friday, after school or 10:00 a.m." In other words, the young boy will stay with his dad most of the time in L.A. and travel to see his mom once a month. Of course, she will have custody of him for holidays like spring break and President's Day weekend -- but it's a huge change for the actress.

So why would she agree to this?

Well, our sources say Evan is extremely afraid of putting her son in danger by living with her in Los Angeles.

As you know, Evan is involved in a criminal investigation into alleged abuse at the hands of rocker Marilyn Manson -- and believes she could be the victim of retaliation by him for working with investigators and possibly testifying in the case.

The 'Westworld' star revealed the fears in custody court, telling the judge, "I am a key witness in a pending criminal investigation. In connection with the investigation, I allege that I was the victim of torture, rape, and pedophilic grooming by an intentionally known public figure."

She continued, "I am extremely afraid of the alleged offender. I have suffered a severe, traumatic physical and emotional injury at his hands, and I am afraid that he will seek retribution against me for testifying by harming me, our son, and members of our family."

The actress claims she was told directly by investigators that her family's safety WAS at risk.

It should be noted, Bell filed documents with the court after claiming Wood was keeping their son from him. In his filing, Jamie pointed out that it shouldn't matter what was going on with Marilyn Manson or anyone else -- the former couple should share custody in L.A. He wrote, "Whatever fears Evan may have regarding third parties should have nothing to do with me or custody of our son. I do not even want to think of the short- and long-term psychological harm Evan might be inflicting upon Jack with this kind of talk and my prolonged separation from him."

Wood responded, saying, "I have not kept Jack from Jamie, who has the means and opportunity to visit Jack whenever he wishes. I have conveyed to Jamie my very real and deep concerns regarding my and Jack’s safety should we take up residence in Los Angeles."

Ultimately, Woods agreed to allow her son to live in L.A. -- but with his father. The deal was signed and filed with the Los Angeles County Courts and will continue this way unless circumstances change.

She is a "PSYCHO" correct!

Ok so basically she was trying to alienate the son from his dad, start a new life in Nashville and put the onus on the father to go out of his way to fly cross-country anytime he wanted to see his child. And it backfired.

Got it.

What the fuck's in Nashville? I think r2 has it exactly right. Not at all surprised they were only married for two years, she must be crazy once you get over the great sex.

“ I allege that I was the victim of torture, rape, and pedophilic grooming by an intentionally known public figure."

She was 19/20 when they started dating and if it was any earlier, she was cheating on Jamie Bell with him.

Something is not adding up.

R2 Her and Jamie Bell have been in a custody battle since 2021.

Wood said she was informed by investigators that her and her family’s safety were at risk. The actress said she decided to leave Los Angeles and exclusively reside in Tennessee in November 2020.

“At one time did I conceal from Jamie our whereabouts,” she said. In December 2020, Wood told Bell about the criminal investigation she was involved in.

Despite this, she claimed he filed a case in California to fight her for custody.

Wood said she Bell had known for years that she planned to raise Jack outside of Los Angeles. She moved their kid in 2016 and made it his home base.

“There is certainly more detail into our relationship and my concerns regarding Jamie’s judgment and parenting that I could provide the Court AND will do so as part of my response to Jamie’s request for custody,” she wrote.

Wood said, “I have not kept Jack from Jamie, who has the means and opportunity to visit Jack whenever he wishes. I have conveyed to Jamie my very real and deep concerns regarding my and Jack’s safety should we take up residence in Los Angeles.”

Bell filed a declaration in the case dated March 2021. At the time, he said, “Evan continues to withhold our son Jack from me out of state. The actor said, “Evan abruptly and unilaterally decided to withhold Jack from me in mid-December 2020.”

She sounds...extra. You don't get to disclose the whereabouts of someone's child from them. Sorry.

She sounds like your classic manipulative narcissist.

From what I have learned about MM since she and a couple of others went public about their relationships with him, he sounds like a creepy disturbed person who is infatuated with creepy and disturbing things. That said, I’m just not part of the generation that is comfortable with him not having his day in court. He was dropped by his label and his agency and that’s just based on her allegations, nothing factual. I don’t think that’s right. She says he began “grooming” her from their very first meeting, but how is something like that proven as fact? So, it’s that kind of stuff that makes me uneasy. R6 is right and this contentious custody battle with her ex is worthy of a side eye at least.

She is TOTALLY full of shit about MM and that kid is way better off with a grounded dad than this nut case.

Oh dear.

Don’t know much about her, but it seems likely this is a “when life gives you lemons…” situation.

She has lost custody because she’s a greedy narcissist, so she’s cramming that shitty development into her fanatically vindictive anti-MN crusade.

She seems WAY to fucked up to be raising a kid. With holding him from his father won't look good to the Court either. That she even had anything to do with Marilyn Manson, tells me how messed up she is. Keep that kid away from Marilyn Manson,.too.

That’s the thing. I am the same age as Evan and 99% of kids our age knew fucking aging performative schockmeisters at our age was the act of a fool. She wasn’t a 13-year-old.

She’s a total liar and got caught. She’s borderline. That kid stands no chance.

by Anonymousreply 14June 7, 2023 5:07 AM

Wait… so which one is the kid’s father?

And Marilyn Manson is the safer option?!?!

by Anonymousreply 15June 7, 2023 5:47 AM

Jamie Bell is the kid's father. Manson doesn't have anything to do with the kid (the kid was born after he and Evan broke up).

MM also dated Rose McGowan. Does he date damaged people or does he damage them?

What a week for Kate Mara. Her delusional ex reviews an affair they had, and now her husband is involved in baby mama drama.

R17, Rose grew up in a pedophile cult. The same one as River Phoenix. She was beyond fucked up from the start.

Evan was a child actor - her first role was in the TV series American Gothic at 8-years-old.

by Anonymousreply 20June 7, 2023 8:17 AM

Isn’t Kate Mara rich enough to pay off all these people to shut up?

The dad has dirt on her. The nonsense about Marilyn Manson is just a Megan Markle-level bad PR attempt.
