ACL Festival 2017- Week 2 Day 1

ACL Festival 2017- Week 2 Day 1

Ryan Adams' tour dates across the United Kingdom and Ireland have been pulled after a New York Times exposé detailed the accounts of several women who allege Adams engaged in emotional and verbal abuse and in a separate allegation, had sent sexually explicit text messages to an underage girl.

Adams was prepared to put out three albums in 2019, starting with Big Colors which was slated for an April 19 release.

Adams was set to kick off a series of shows in Dublin beginning March 30 but the tour will no longer take place, The New York Times reported Friday.

Ryan Adams had to cancel the remaining dates of his tour in the United Kingdom as well as in Ireland.

The Times's report also contained accounts from several women, including Adams' ex-wife Mandy Moore, who alleged that he "dangled career opportunities while simultaneously pursuing female artists for sex".

A 20-year-old woman, named as "Ava", said that Adams had inappropriate conversations with her when she was 15 and 16-years-old and that he exposed himself to her on a video call. At a certain point Adams allegedly texted the teenager, "If people knew they would say I was like R Kelley lol".

Jack de Belin Has Been Stood Down By The NRL
The NRL's changes come after an off-season which has included 17 off-field scandals at a rate of nearly one every 10 days. The Rugby League Players' Association (RLPA) is unhappy with the policy change, but ruled out industrial action.

They told him, by what they said or by what they didn't, that what he was doing was okay.

On his Twitter account on February 13, Adams said: "I am not a ideal man and I have made many mistakes".

Adams has been accused of sexual misconduct, psychologcval abuse and engaging in sexually explicit communications with an underage girl.

"The picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate".

The "Oh My Sweet Carolina" singer denied the allegations in social media posts, "Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. In the current climate we live in now, I definitely think about who I want my hard-earned money to go to... and I do think the whole [music] industry needs to look at itself". "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".
