According to TMZ, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department detectives executed a search warrant at the rocker's West Hollywood home. Authorities are said to have forced entry into the property. Manson, who was born Brian Warner, was not said to have been home at the time.

The Sheriff's Department also confirmed to PEOPLE that the search had taken place.

Insiders told TMZ that the search warrant was connected to an investigation into sexual assault allegations against the 52-year-old. Authorities reportedly seized hard drives and media storage units which are to be reviewed before the case will be sent to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

PEOPLE noted that the musician sold his Hollywood Hills home earlier this month. It is not clear if that was the property authorities searched.

At least 15 women have accused the "Man That You Fear" crooner of abuse, including Evan Rachel Wood and Game Of Thrones alum Esmé Bianco, who sued him in April. Wood accused the actor of "grooming" her when she was a teenager and claimed that he "horrifically abused me for years."

"The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, 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," a rep for the sheriff's department told Pitchfork in February. "The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood."

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

Manson is reportedly facing three lawsuits. In May, his personal assistant Ashley Walters sued the "Coma White" singer for sexual exploitation and Ashley Morgan Smithline sued him in June for sexual assault, sexual battery and human trafficking. A fourth lawsuit filed by a woman going by "Jane Doe" was dismissed in September as the statute of limitations had expired.
