Infamous serial killer Charles Manson recently became engaged to a 26 year-old woman, and his son isn’t happy about it.
Matthew Roberts, 47, is the son of Manson and a woman he raped in the 1960s. Despite this, he has recently developed a relationship with the murderer, and he believes his father’s fortune from music and artwork sold during his prison sentence has now reached six figures. Roberts is now accusing Manson’s fiance (and possible wife), Afton “Star” Burton, of using his father for his money.
“Charlie’s in jail locked behind bars and Star has managed to wriggle her way into his world,” Roberts said. “I heard he’s the wealthiest inmate in the prison system but I’m not sure exactly how that works. I mean he’ll never see a penny of that but Star potentially could.”
“She says she loves him, but I think she just loves the idea of him,” he added. “For me the whole thing is about money for her, I absolutely believe that, there’s no doubt in my mind.”
Burton and Manson obtained a marriage license on November 7, and were given 90 days to marry. While it has not been confirmed that they have tied the knot, Burton was recently spotted wearing a wedding ring, causing many to speculate that they have indeed married.
Though Roberts is skeptical that the pair has already married, he’s hoping that they have not.
“I am warning her, if she has married my dad who is the most hated man in America, she needs to realize she will become the most hated woman in America, I hope she thought long and hard before saying ‘I do,'” he said of his potential step mother.
Roberts was conceived during an orgy in 1967, when Manson raped his mother. He was put up for adoption at birth, and raised by a normal family in Illinois. He did not know of his connection to Manson until he traced his biological mother in 2001. He has since developed a relationship with Manson, and was initially invited to his father’s wedding, but now it appears that it has happened without him.
When asked if he could explain what Burton is doing with Manson, Roberts let his true feelings be known:
“If anything, Star manipulated Charlie. She’s after his money, he does have a lot of money. I think you’ve got two people who are a little bit touched. They got their reasons for marrying that people like you and I wouldn’t understand.
But I can’t imagine what she’s doing with an 80-year-old man. It’s actually shocking. I mean who goes and marries someone who’s going to spend the rest of their life in jail? How do you explain that to people. It’s just bizarre.
This isn’t just someone in jail, this is someone who could kill you.”
