Phoebe Bridgers Posts Her First Public Statement Addressing Ryan Adams’s Sexual Harassment

She said she considered him psychologically abusive and that he hindered her musical career. "Thank you from my whole f***ing heart to my friends, my bands, my mom", she wrote.

The story has led to immediate repercussions for Adams, as his Universal Music Group said they would not release his next album, titled Big Color, in the wake of the story. Like other women in the article, Bridgers came forward after learning that his behavior toward others was similar.

Moore, 34, donned a grey patterned top and matching bottoms with her dark auburn locks down and parted on the chilly winter day, rounding out her ensemble with black sunglasses and white sneakers. Supermodel and singer-songwriter Karen Elson joined the growing list of women claiming to have endured abuse at the indie musician, she said: "I also had a traumatising experience with Ryan Adams", in a post across social media.

Adams also released his own statement via Twitter reading, "I am not a ideal man and I have made many mistakes". The piece went on to claim that Adams seemed unconvinced by Ava's responses about how old she was, but allegedly continued on with their sexual conversations.

"I hope all those speaking out are given the grace and dignity they deserve". In a now-deleted tweet, Adams wrote that when someone told him that he had married Moore, he thought they were joking, and there weren't enough painkillers to numb the shock. And, if they turned him down, he harassed them.

The vote was 54-45, primarily on a party-line basis with most Republicans backing the 68-year-old and most Democrats opposed. That view has alarmed Democrats, especially since the obstruction inquiry has been central to Mueller's investigation.

It's been a weird week and I wanted to say a couple things.

'Guys, if your friend is acting f***ed up, call them out. "That's the way this all gets better".

"I don't know who Ryan Adams is, but if Mandy Moore says you did that s- - you did that s-", a third tweeted. On Thursday, the Times reported that an unnamed law enforcement official said the F.B.I.is "looking into" whether Adams' behavior was criminal. Through a lawyer, he denied numerous specific allegations, including that he "ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage". Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false.

'He would always tell me, "You're not a real musician, because you don't play an instrument,"' she told the publication. I'm encouraged that many women have bonded and helped each other heal. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".
