Evan Rachel Wood revealed new allegations against Marilyn Manson on Friday, accusing him of using anti-Semitic behavior against her.

The "Westworld" star continued to open up about her relationship with the musician, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, and the abuse she said she endured throughout their relationship.

Wood, 33, went public with her claims against Manson, 52, in an Instagram post on Monday. She has previously spoken about emotional and sexual abuse in her life, but Monday was the first time she specifically named Warner as her alleged abuser.

On her Instagram story on Friday, Wood said Manson was prejudiced against her Jewish heritage and repeatedly used the N-word.

"I was called a 'jew' in a derogatory manner. He would draw swastikas over my bedside table when he was mad at me," Wood wrote. "I heard the 'n' word over and over. Everyone around him was expected to laugh and join in. If you did not or (god forbid) called him out, you were singled out and abused more."

Wood said she had "never been more scared in my life."

Wood also said her "mother is Jewish and I was raised with the religion."

She continued: "Because she converted and wasn't of Jewish descent he would say things like, 'that's better' because I wasn't 'blood Jewish.'"

People reported that the Instagram Story posts, which delete after 24 hours, also included photos of Manson's tattoos. Wood said at least three of them had anti-Semitic symbolism, including a swastika on his chest and other white supremacist marks.

The remaining slides attempted to dispel claims that the alleged abuse was connected to "kinky sex," People reported.

"Brian and I never had a 'BDSM' relationship," Wood wrote. "We didn't even have 'kinky' sex. We weren't having sexual intercourse when I was being tortured, before or after.

"I thought I was going to die the entire time," she added.

On Saturday afternoon, Wood said she filed a police report last year after learning of a threat to release underage pictures of her. She alleged that the threat came from Manson's current wife, Lindsay Usich.

She wrote: "On Dec 19th, I had to file a police report after I was alerted to threats made by leslee_lane and @lindsayusichofficial (Brian's Wife) for conspiring to release photos of me when I was underage, after being given large amounts of drugs and alcohol, before Brian performed on Halloween in Las Vegas, to 'Ruin my career' and 'Shut me Up.'"

Wood also shared screenshots of the alleged discussion on Discord, and photos reportedly taken on the night in question.

She also included a copy of the police report in her Instagram Story with her personal information scribbled out.

Wood first revealed sexual abuse allegations against Manson last week

On Monday, Wood accused Manson of "grooming" her as a teenager and "horrifically" abusing her. The two first dated in 2007, when Wood was 19 and Manson was 38, before getting engaged in 2010. They officially ended things eight months after announcing the engagement.

"The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson," Wood wrote in a February 1 post on Instagram.

"He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission," she wrote.

"I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail," she wrote. "I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives."

Manson denied the allegations in a statement on Instagram, claiming that his intimate relationships were consensual.

"Obviously, my life and my art have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality," Manson wrote. "My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how - and why - others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth."

Manson has faced backlash over the allegations

The fallout for Manson was swift.

As other women, including Rose McGowan, shared their experiences with Manson, the music industry has attempted to distance itself.

Loma Vista Recordings dropped Manson as a client following the allegations, while Starz removed his performance from the TV series "American Gods," and AMC replaced Manson on "Creepshow."

Deadline also reported that Creative Artists Agency dropped Manson over the allegations, and Billboard reported that his longtime manager Tony Ciulla stepped away from the musician.
