7 women claim singer Ryan Adams was inappropriate

Outlined in the report, Adams' ex-wife Mandy Moore, singer Phoebe Bridgers, singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye, and other women detailed their experiences with Adams ranging from emotional abuse to sexual misconduct. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologise deeply and unreservedly.

Bridgers says that she and Adams "ended up hanging out all night and recording a song together called Killer".

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.

Since she had been a pop star as a teen, Adams would lord his critically acclaimed career over the "This Is Us" star's head and tried to manipulate her own career, handicapping her during an important moment in her life.

Although Ava had been playing gigs in Manhattan with musicians since the age of 12, she said the idea that she would need to sleep with musicians in order to work with them "just totally put me off to the whole idea" of being a musician, and she tells the publication she never played another gig.

"I am not a ideal man and I have made many mistakes".

The paper quoted another text that said: "Tell me that your mom is not gonna kill me if she finds out we even text".

Others who spoke to The Times about Adams includes a now-20-year-old fan identified as Ava, who claims she began talking with Adams in 2013 when she was 14 and played the bass.

But reports have surfaced that his well-documented dedication to supporting the careers of young female artists had a darker side, as women speak out against his "controlling" behaviour towards the people whose music dreams he could make or break.

In one of them, he allegedly wrote, "If people knew they would say I was like R Kelley [sic] lol".

As with "Ava", who was a bassist, Adams offered to use his indie rock standing to help launch the career of female artists.

Nothing came of their writing, and Moore said Adams was disparaging and emotionally abusive, "always" telling her she wasn't "a real musician".

He also called Moore's characterisation of their time together "completely inconsistent with his view of the relationship", adding that he was supportive of her "well-deserved professional success". However, those opportunities often resulted in Adams reportedly pursuing the women sexually and then lashing out or severing ties with them if they rejected his advances. I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I thought was underage.

ET has reached out to reps for Adams and Moore.

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

While she says he never hit her, Butterworth claims Adams was "rageful" and physically intimidated her as well as harassed her online. Rats. I'm f-ing taking you down. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. According to People, a New York Times story reports that a total of seven women have accused him of being "manipulative, controlling and obsessive".

'I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be.

In a new article from The New York Times, musician Ryan Adams is the centre of sexual misconduct accusations by several women. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".
