Ramirez (born Jeordie White), has been accused in a detailed statement by Jessicka Addams, the lead singer of a band called Jack Off Jill, claiming that Ramirez became increasingly physical during a time the two were dating in the ’90s when she was just 18 years of age.
“He forced me on to the floor with his hand around my neck,” she wrote. “I said NO. I said NO. I said it so loud enough, that Pete came rushing in from the other room to get him off of me. But I had been raped. I had been raped by somebody I thought I loved.”
After being fired by Manson after the news, Ramirez has apologised for his actions.
“I have only recently been made aware of these allegations from over 20 years ago,” begins his statement.
“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 apologise and truly regret it.”
