Marilyn Manson has today announced he is parting ways with longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez (real name Jeordie White) following allegations of sexual assault

White, who returned to the band in 2008 after leaving in 2003, has been accused of sexually and physically abusing his ex-girlfriend and lead singer of Jack Off Jill, Jessicka Adams, during their relationship in the '90s.

"I have decided to part ways with Jeordie White as a member of Marilyn Manson," Manson wrote in a statement. 

"He will be replaced for the upcoming tour. I wish him well."

White is yet to respond to the allegations.
