Footage which emerged yesterday and which shows twenty-nine-year-old singer Lana Del Rey appearing in a graphic rape scene, reportedly intended for a Marilyn Manson music video, has left many aghast.
Shock rocker, Manson, reportedly collaborated with Hostel director Eli Roth in 2012 and footage shot during that time depicts 'Video Games' singer Lana being subjected to a violent sexual assault.
The scene which is extremely difficult to watch features a terrified and tearful Lana, wearing nothing but a T-shirt and underwear, being manhandled and assaulted. Her performance has been praised by many fans who thanked the young star for her realistic portrayal.
Commenting on the still unreleased footage last year, forty-two-year-old horror director, Eli said: “The footage is so sick, it’s been locked in a vault for over a year.”
The frightening scenes didn’t make the final cut for Manson’s music video and reports have suggested that the controversial singer never intended to use that particular footage for track, 'No Reflection.'
Commenting on the controversy, a representative for the rocker said: “Manson did not direct this, shoot it, nor was it for a Marilyn Manson video.”
However, scenes which feature in the leaked clip were also included in the official 'No Reflection' music video.
The leaked video has now been removed.
