Update: woman accused rocker Marilyn Manson of rape filed her case out of court.
The lawsuit was dismissed Tuesday because the statute of limitations has passed over the woman’s allegations, TMZ mentioned.

The judge was skeptical of the lawsuit, but gave the woman 20 days to resubmit the complaint and address concerns about the repressed memories claim.
The lawsuit was filed by Jane Doe, who claims she began dating Manson, also known as Brian Warner, in 2011.
