Ryan Adams has been accused of abuse and inappropriate behaviour by several women

The musician denies the claims, published in the New York Times.

Ryan Adams has been accused of emotional and psychological abuse, inappropriate and manipulative behaviour and harassment by several women, including one who was underage at the time.

An extensive report from the New York Times includes named accounts from the likes of Adams’ ex-wife Mandy Moore and Phoebe Bridgers. It states “seven women and more than a dozen associates described a pattern of manipulative behaviour in which Adams dangled career opportunities while simultaneously pursuing female artists for sex. In some cases, they said, he would turn domineering and vengeful, jerking away his offers of support when spurned, and subjecting women to emotional and verbal abuse, and harassment in texts and on social media. The accounts have been corroborated by family members or friends who were present at the time, as well as by correspondence from Adams reviewed by The New York Times.”

Adams has denied the accusations via his lawyer, and addressed the situation with a series of tweets. In them he states “hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly”. You can read them below.
