MARILYN Manson has hired round-the-clock security at his Los Angeles home after being left "paranoid" amid abuse accusations, The Sun can exclusively report.
The shock rocker is facing a string of domestic violence allegations from at least 11 women, and has been holed up at his Hollywood home for weeks.
A source told The Sun exclusively: "Manson is worried about his safety and is not taking any risks.
"He’s concerned about who might turn up at the house and has hired 24-hour security to watch out for him.
"He’s paranoid at the best of times, but the allegations have really rocked him and he was adamant he needed protection."
The insider said a group claiming to be documentary makers has been spotted outside of the multi-million-dollar property filming and taking photos.
The Sun also previously revealed police swarmed the home to carry out a welfare check, but the singer repeatedly refused to come to his front gate to address the officers.
Manson, 52, has reportedly been dropped by his longtime manager, Tony Ciulla, along with his label, Loma Vista Recordings, who said they would no longer be working with the disgraced star and would cease promoting his latest album "effective immediately."
He has been spending time with his inner circle, including his personal assistant, his wife of one year, Lindsay Usich, and has had at least one visit from a member of his legal team, according to the source.
"Manson still has close friends and team members who have been with him for years and are worried about him, but a lot of people have turned their backs,” the informant said.
"He is unsure of what’s to come regarding his career and is keeping an incredibly low profile.
"Manson has always been a hermit who often sleeps in the day and parties or paints at night into the early hours, so it’s unlikely he’ll be seen in public for a while."
Actress Evan Rachel Wood was the first woman to come forward, claiming her ex-fiance "horrifically abused her for years."
She alleged: "The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.
"He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years.
"I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail.
"I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.
"I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent."
Other women, including Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco, have also accused him of severe domestic abuse.
Bianco, who starred as Ros in the first three seasons of the show, began dating Manson in 2011, according to story published in New York magazine.
In 2009, she said he asked her to fly to LA to star in a music video with him, and play a "victim/lover" who would "have to pretend to like being manhandled."
But, she claimed she "spent the next three days in lingerie, barely sleeping or eating, with Manson serving up cocaine rather than food."
She alleged he lost his temper and threw the camera around, becoming "violent, tying her with cables to a prayer kneeler, lashing her with a whip, and using an electric sex toy called a Violet Wand on her wounds."
Bianco alleged there was no discussion of safe words, but they began a long-distance affair until she moved in with him in West Hollywood in 2011.
During her time with the star, she alleged that he would often "bite her during sex without her consent, leaving her whole body bruised," providing shocking photographs of her with whip marks on her body.
Manson posted a statement on his Instagram after more women accused him of abuse, vehemently denying the allegations.
He wrote: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.
“My intimate relationships have always been entire consensual with like-minded partners.
"Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth."
The Sun has reached out to Manson's lawyer and reps for comment.
