R. Kelly has been accused of sexual misconduct with women and girls but has denied the allegations.

One of those women is ex-wife Mandy Moore who said the former Whiskeytown rocker was emotionally abusive and controlling during their seven year marriage from 2009 to 2016. Approximately seven women accused Mr. Adams of "dangling career opportunities" in exchange for casual sex - the article suggests. "In some cases", the article claims, "he would turn domineering and vengeful, jerking away his offers of support when spurned, and subjecting women to emotional and verbal abuse, and harassment in texts and on social media".

Another artist who accuses Adams of wrongdoing in the piece is Ava - identified by her middle name - a now-20-year-old bass player who was 13 years old when she alleges Adams struck up an online correspondence with her, accusing him of exposing himself during phone sex over Skype video chats.

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. "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.

Adams' lawyer said the singer denied all of the "extremely serious and outlandish accusations" from the "disgruntled individuals".

When she eventually parted ways with her music manager and Adams encouraged her to not seek another manager to take over, giving him full control over her musical career. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologise deeply and unreservedly. In one of the more shocking tweets, he wrote, "When someone told me we got married I thought they were joking".

"As someone who has always tried to spread joy through my music and my life, hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly", he continued.

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

"I never see pics of you anymore", Adams allegedly texted Ava in 2014, when she was 16.

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.

Rising country star Phoebe Bridgers said that Adams was more concerned with starting a sexual relationship with her than helping her career when it came to working with her. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing", wrote Adams. "I just want you to touch your nipple", he texted, before again asking about her age.

Adams, through his lawyer, said while he communicates with fans, he "does not recall having online communications with anyone related to anything outside of music".

A rep for Adams did not immediately reply to Rolling Stone's request for comment, though the musician's tone shifted from defiant to apologetic in statements throughout the day.
