West Brought Manson To "Donda" Album Listening Event

It appears that Kanye and Manson have been building a solid relationship for quite some time now. In August, Manson was also spotted at the final "Donda" album listening event, in Ye's hometown of Chicago. That went down at Soldier Field, home of the NFL's Chicago Bears. At that event, Manson was standing alongside Kanye, while they were standing on the porch, of the replica of the "Donda" house. This replica recreated the home that Kanye grew up in, in Chicago.

West's Relationship With Manson Is Being Questioned

At the same time, many don't approve of the fact that Kanye is starting this friendship with Manson. This is due to being accused by multiple women, of sexual assault. Since June, four have come forward, with allegations against the disgraced artist. The latest woman filed a lawsuit in June, as it was for sexual assault and sexual battery.

This woman is Ashley Morgan Smithline, who says Manson initially interacted with her, in 2010, online. There, Manson convinced Smithline to meet with her, regarding casting her in a movie. At the time, Manson labeled her as the "perfect girl," for that project. She added that she was flown out to Los Angeles, in November 2010, and moved into Manson's apartment.

At first, the relationship was consensual, regarding the sex. Smithline ended up claiming that an incident ended up occurring, where Manson allegedly "woke from unconsciousness with her ankles and wrists tied together behind her back and [Manson] sexually penetrating her." She constantly told Manson "no," but he supposedly told her to shut up, and suffered multiple injuries, including to her vagina.

Another incident was said to have happened that same month, where Smithline claimed that she was choked, and forced onto a bed. From there, Manson supposedly "grabbed a knife next to the bed and began cutting [her] shoulder, inner arm, and stomach." That relationship ended up lasting until January 2013. Manson's reps firmly denied any wrongdoing, though.

"We strongly deny Ms. Smithline’s claims," said the rep, to TMZ. There are so many falsehoods within her claims that we wouldn’t know where to begin to answer them. This relationship, to the limited extent it was a relationship, lasted less than a week in 2010."
