(CNN)Actress Esmé Bianco is accusing singer Marilyn Manson of sexually assaulting, coercing through drugs and beating her multiple times during their relationship a decade ago, according to a lawsuit filed Friday.
Bianco, who played Ros in the "Game of Thrones" series, alleges that when she went to Los Angeles to film a video for one of Manson's songs in February 2009, the artist -- whose real name is Brian Warner -- gave her drugs and alcohol, but no food for four days, "tied her to a prayer kneeler," "beat her with a whip" and "electrocuted her," the lawsuit says.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement in February that its "Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner also known as 'Marilyn Manson,' who works in the music industry.
Bianco's lawsuit, filed in US District Court in the Central District of California, also names Manson's manager and his management company as defendants, alleging that Tony Ciulla and Ciulla Management Inc. , "knew of Mr. Warner's conduct and benefitted financially from allowing this abuse to continue.
