Seven women, including one who was underage at the time, accused singer-songwriter Ryan Adams of sexual misconduct and manipulative behavior in a story published Wednesday evening by the New York Times. Their report describes Adams as reacting vengefully to women-including Moore, Bridgers and Jaye-who rejected his advances, retaliating with harassment and abuse both verbal and emotional.

Adams was a decade older than singer/actress Moore when they met in 2007. She plays bass, and it wasn't long before their chats about music and a career turned into phone sex. She alleged that he booked time for them at the studio, but would then replace her with other female artists. Adams denies the incident through his lawyer.

"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", Moore further alleges in the piece.

Adams' ex-fiancée Megan Butterworth - the pair split in 2018 - also claims the musician was controlling and emotionally abusive during their relationship.

Ryan Adams, a soulful modern troubadour?

Among those quoted in The Times article is Adams' ex-wife, This is Us star Mandy Moore, who said "music was a point of control for him".

Other women have alleged Adams "mentorship" took a dark turn.

The New York Times reported that in text messages, Adams repeatedly questioned Ava, the young fan, about her age, and that she would sometimes say she was older than she was. A woman referred to in the article as Ava, who corresponded with Adams on social media, said he used to send her explicit messages when she was underage.

Five-star shooting guard Anthony Edwards commits to Georgia over Kentucky
One of the top basketball recruits for the 2019 class has committed to Georgia over Kentucky. Prior to his commitment, many speculated Anthony Edwards would be staying "home".

Moore, 34 - who has previously opened up about her hard marriage to Adams (they Wednesday in 2009 and divorced in 2016) - says her ex-husband took charge of her music career in 2010 three years after they first met when she was 23.

"I would get in trouble if someone knew we talked like this", Adams reportedly wrote to Ava in November 2014. According to his lawyer, Andrew B. Brettler: "Mr. Adams unequivocally denies that he ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage".

After the break-up, Bridgers said Adams went on to offer her a few dates opening for him on tour, which would be a major opportunity for a debut artist.

On Twitter, Adams apologised "deeply and unreservedly" to anyone he had hurt, saying he was "not a ideal man" who had made many mistakes. "To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly", he tweeted.

"What you experience with him - the treatment, the destructive, manic sort of back and forth behavior - feels so exclusive", Moore told the news outlet.

The woman all said that they finally agreed to come forward after realizing that they were not alone and that Adams had allegedly treated others as bad as he treated them.

Moore has previously cried about her unhappy marriage to the rock star. "Let's learn I bait", the post mysteriously ended, accompanied by a comical phot of Ryan holding what appeared to be dessert snacks over his eyes.
