A New York Times investigation put forward mid-February manipulative behavior. The article was based on the testimony of his ex-wife , musician and actress Mandy Moore. The American newspaper – which has collected the testimony of seven women, a dozen associates and its online communications – also recounted the exchanges of Ryan Adams on the web with a 14-year-old bassist apprentice, messages around the music, which is then transformed into sending suggestive images.
Ryan Adams denies the charges
According to the New York Times , the artist has continued this sexual correspondence for months while questioning the age of the girl. The 44-year-old rocker is also accused of showing career opportunities to female artists while having sex with them. When his advances were postponed, he would have engaged in psychological and verbal pressure and harassed them via SMS or social media.
