Ryan Adams responds to “upsettingly inaccurate” abuse allegations
Ryan Adams has responded to a report from the New York Times where he is accused of sexual misconduct and abuse by several women, including his ex-wife Mandy Moore, Phoebe Bridgers, and a musician who was underage at the time. In a series of tweets, Adams first appologizes "deeply and unreservedly," to anyone he has hurt, "however unintentionally." He then calls the report "upsettingly inaccurate," saying some parts are "outright false." Read his response in full below.
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. 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. As someone who has always tried to spread joy through my music and my life, hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly. I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be. And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing.
