Ryan Adams

Mandy Moore has candidly opened up about her marriage to singer-songwriter Ryan Adams.

The pair were married for seven years, from 2009 to 2016, and Ryan has been the subject of claims of psychological abuse and sexual misconduct in a New York Times article that was published this month. 

Now Mandy has accused her former spouse of being psychologically abusive towards her while they were together. 

The 34-year-old opened up about it on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast which was recorded before the article and six other women had accused Ryan of varying degrees of abuse.

This is Us star said, ''I had no sense of self. I felt like I was drowning. It was so untenable and unsustainable and it was so lonely. I was so sad. I was lonely with him.”

She also said that he affected her career and that the relationship ''had an an entirely unhealthy dynamic”.

She said, ''I would do little jobs – it’s not like I completely stopped working. But it would become abundantly clear while I was working, things would completely fall apart at home.''

She continued, ''I couldn’t do my job because there was a constant stream of trying to pay attention to this person who needed me and wouldn’t let me do anything else.”

Mandy also took to Instagram to pen a powerful message.

She wrote, ''Speaking your truth can be painful and triggering but it’s always worth it. My heart is with all women who have suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. You are seen and heard. #sisterhoodforever.''

Her fans wrote messages of support and encouragement.

One said, ''You are a strong woman. The scary thing about an emotionally abusive relationship is that it takes self-esteem to leave…and that is exactly what your abuser has systematically broken down. Thank you for speaking up.'' 

While another wrote, ''Thank you for being an ally and a great example for your fans young and old. Beautiful and powerful inside and out.'' 

In the New York Times article, a 20-year-old female musician said Ryan had inappropriate conversations with her while she was 15 and 16 to which a lawyer for Ryan denies. 

We applaud Mandy for being so raw and honest about what she went through and hope that anyone in an abusive relationship has the strength to seek support. 



Singer Ryan Adams has been hit with claims of emotional abuse, sexual misconduct and harassment.

The claims surfaced in a New York Times report where seven women came forward to say that the singer-songwriter had offered them help with their music careers before things became sexual and then abusive – both emotional and verbally.

The published report said that a 20-year-old female musician, going by her middle name Ava, had inappropriate conversations with Adam while she was 15 and 16 – he was 40.

Ava also claimed that Ryan had exposed himself in a video call.

The report said that Ryan had pet names for her body parts and messaged her that, ''If people knew they would say I was like R Kelley lol.''

Andrew B. Brettler, Adam’s lawyer said that, ''Mr. Adams unequivocally denies that he ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage.''

Adams’ ex-wife, actor and singer Mandy Moore, also said that he was psychologically abusive towards her during their marriage.

In light of the report, Ryan took to Twitter to address the allegations.

The 44-year-old said, ''I am not a perfect man and I have made many mistakes. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly.''

He continued, ''But the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I thought was underage. Period.''

The singers Phoebe Bridgers and Courtney Jaye also alleged that Ryan behaved inappropriately during their relationships.

The article claims that Ryan became obsessed with Phoebe and, ''He began barraging her with texts, insisting that she prove her whereabouts, or leave social situations to have phone sex, and threatening suicide if she didn’t reply immediately.''

Ryan is a seven-times Grammy winner and is set to play two sold out concerts in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on March 30 and 31.



It’s been a bad week for celebrity splits, and now we can add singers Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams to the list of casualties.

The couple, who have been married for five years, announced this weekend that they are calling time on their relationship.

In a joint statement, the couple told MailOnline: “Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost six years. It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.”

Mandy has reportedly now filed for divorce from the musician, just weeks before their sixth wedding anniversary, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple started dating back in 2008, before going on to get engaged and tying the knot in an intimate ceremony in Georgia a year later.

Sad news for the couple, but it’s comforting to hear that they are still on good terms.
