Singer Ryan Adams calls accusations in New York Times 'inaccurate'

Adams, 44, was responding on Twitter to a New York Times story in which seven women, including his ex-wife actress Mandy Moore, accused him of manipulative behavior and of pursuing female artists for sex.

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 was really alone", said Ava, who gave only her middle name for legal and privacy reasons, "and he was really friendly and cool". However, Bridgers claims Adams would later demand she "leave social situations to have phone sex, and threatening suicide if she didn't reply immediately", the Times writes.

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.

"Mr Adams unequivocally denies that he ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage", Adams' layer, Andrew B Brettler, told the Times. She also told the Times that she once agreed to video chat with him, and once they were connected, she saw that he was naked. He added, "Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false". Days later, the piece claims Adams sent Ava the message, "If people knew they would say I was like R Kelly lol".

Meanwhile musicians Phoebe Bridgers and Courtney Jaye both shared separate stories of how Adams manipulated them by promising to support their careers, then avoiding them and rescinding offers to record or tour when Bridgers ended their short fling and Jaye rejected his sexual advances.

'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, ' she said. The next day, she called Adams to express her anger over the situation; Jaye ultimately never worked on music with Adams. "To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly", Adams tweeted.

Savage's mother was apparently not allowed to attend Grammys
Rapper Jay-Z hired New York-based attorney Alex Spiro to represent 21 Savage in his case. "And it's important to Jay". He is being held without bail and was forced to miss the Grammys , despite his two nominations for " rockstar ".

"I never see pics of you anymore", Adams also allegedly wrote in 2014.

Fans responses to the accusations against Adams have been swift and damning; on Twitter, many are sharing their grief at realising the man they idolised for many years may have been using his power in the music industry not just to get into the trousers of women he promised the world to, but also to stifle the career of his ex-wife Mandy Moore.

Moore has previously cried about her unhappy marriage to the rock star. I am happy for everyone and doing my best. Speaking with The Telegraph past year, Bridgers said that her Stranger In the Alps single "Motion Sickness" was about Adams.

Paste has reached out to representatives for Adams for further comment.

In that same interview, Bridgers said a mutual friend introduced her to Adams in 2015. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".

"I want to make music", Moore added.

Moving past his apology and denial of the allegations, Adams claims he always tried to spread joy and positivity with his music, and would never intentionally cause anyone undue distress.
