Actress Evan Rachel Wood says her ex-fiancé demanded she cook him dinner in the hours following her 2011 abortion, the New York Post reported on Monday.

She also detailed other disturbing abuse allegations against the musician, with whom she was in a relationship from 2007 to 2011.

What are the details?

Wood — now an advocate for sexual assault and trafficking survivors — in her recent documentary, "Phoenix Rising," said that she realized she was pregnant in 2011 while filming for "Mildred Pierce."

“From the beginning of our relationship, he always had an issue with whatever birth control I was using — and I went through, like, every type to see which one he liked, and he didn’t like any of them, so essentially he didn’t want me using birth control,” Wood said, noting that the musician — whose real name is Brian Warner — refused to wear condoms.

Wood said that she ultimately decided to terminate the pregnancy, and in the hours following the invasive procedure was told to cook dinner.

“He flew out for the abortion,” Wood recalled of the moments she decided to end her child's life. “The second it was over it was like, ‘Make me dinner.’ And I remember being like, ‘I’m supposed to be resting — my body has gone through this trauma ... there’s aftermath here.’ And he didn’t care.”

Wood said that the emotionally scarring incident — and more in the same vein — drove her to try to commit suicide.

“I went into the bathroom and I took [a] glass and I shattered it on the floor and just started digging at my wrists as hard as I could,” Wood said of the unsuccessful suicide bid. “When I woke up, I felt different. I feel like whoever I was went to sleep and didn’t wake up that night, and this new version woke up and had to start rebuilding her life. I called my mom and I said, ‘I just tried to kill myself, and I need to go to a hospital, like, immediately.'"

Wood in the documentary said that the rocker used to rape her in her sleep.

“I’d wake up, I just remember doing the mental math quickly and thinking, ‘Just stay, just stay asleep, don’t move, just don’t move.’ So I would just lie limp and still until it was over, and then I swear to God, he would just fling my leg and walk out of the room,” she said, and went on to accuse him of sexual torture including being repeatedly struck with a "Nazi whip" as she knelt on a prayer kneeler inside his home and using electrodes on her genitals.

“It hurt so bad that I broke the kneeler in half,” Wood recalled. “I remember in that moment thinking, ‘Just tell him whatever he wants to hear, just tell him whatever he wants to hear’ ... and I said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.’ I was begging for forgiveness, and he was cradling me and saying, ‘You understand now.’ And then he cut open his hand ... and made me drink his blood. And then he cut me ... and drank mine.”

At least 15 women have come forward and accused the musician of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident, and Warner has said that he "vehemently denies any and all claims of sexual assault or abuse of anyone"

Warner on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against Wood in L.A. Superior Court and said that she defamed him with rape allegations.

“As we detailed in our lawsuit, nothing that Evan Rachel Wood ... [or her] hand-picked co-conspirators have said on this matter can be trusted,” Warner's attorney, Howard King, told the outlet in a statement. “This is just more of the same.”
