As sad as it makes me to think he's an abuser, you're right. Much like R Kelly, his music sheds a light on some of the very real things happening in his life. The treatment these women describe are very similar to what R Kelly's victims talk about; sleep deprivation, being locked in a room, the pre-abuse love bombing.
being a long time fan of his it just bums me out to think this is the type of person he really is. I too thought Brian Warner seemed like a smart, sensitive, misunderstood person. So many of us did.
