Ryan Adams accused of sexual misconduct

ACL Festival 2017- Week 2 Day 1

The accusations from a total of seven women range from emotional and psychological abuse to sexual misconduct, with the Times alleging "a pattern of manipulative behaviour in which Adams dangled career opportunities while simultaneously pursuing female artists for sex".

Managers for Adams did not immediately return an email seeking comment, but his lawyer denied the claims to the Times.

The singer and actor Mandy Moore, Adams's ex-wife, also told the newspaper he was psychologically abusive: "He would always tell me, 'You're not a real musician, because you don't play an instrument'".

One of the victims claims she was just 14 when the artist sexted her and exposed himself to her via Skype, and said people would compare him R. Kelly if anyone found out about their relationship. Mandy, who was married to Ryan for almost six years until divorcing in 2016, said her ex "discouraged her from working with other producers or managers" when he "offered to work on her next album" in 2010, the Times reported. The texts show Adams repeatedly asked Ava about her age, and even though she at times said she older, he still said in 2014 that he would "get in trouble if someone knew we talked like this". Bridgers told the Times that Adams began discussing marriage less than a week into the relationship and insisted that she open for him on a European tour.

Through Brettler, Adams denied the hotel room incident and described his relationship with Bridgers as "a brief, consensual fling".

Sometimes you get stuck to the spiritual equivalent of a soggy piece of cardboard'. "His controlling behavior essentially did block my ability to make new connections in the industry during a very pivotal and potentially lucrative time - my entire mid-to-late 20s". Their short-lived relationship became emotionally abusive when he frequently demanded to know where she was and threatened suicide if she didn't respond to his texts quickly, she said. But the leagal [sp] eagles see you.

He took control of her music in 2010 but wouldn't record with her, regularly bumping her to work with other female musicians and discouraging her from working with anyone else, lashing out when she questioned him. But do you have the truth on your side. No. I do.

Moore said, "What you experience with him - the treatment, the destructive, manic sort of back and forth behavior - feels so exclusive. And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".

"Something changed in me that year", she said.

He also addressed the allegations on Twitter, starting off by saying "I am not a ideal man and I have made many mistakes".

Moore, star of "This Is Us", was married to Adams for nearly six years before divorcing in 2018.

While she says he never hit her, Butterworth claims Adams was "rageful" and physically intimidated her as well as harassed her online. "To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly", Adams tweeted.

On the same day the story surfaced, Ryan took his defense to Twitter and wrote, "the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate". He added, "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.
