This Is Us star Mandy Moore opened up about her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Adams in a New York Times article which included a number of women coming forward sharing their abusive experiences with the musician.

Rock singer Ryan Adams on Wednesday called a New York Times article about him "upsettingly inaccurate" but said he was "not a flawless man" and apologized to anyone he had hurt.

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.

Although Ava had been playing gigs in Manhattan with musicians since the age of 12, she said the idea that she would need to sleep with musicians in order to work with them "just totally put me off to the whole idea" of being a musician, and she tells the publication she never played another gig.

One woman, a then-aspiring bassist identified as Ava, claims she was 14 when she entered an online relationship with Adams that eventually led to sexual conversations and an instance when he exposed himself to her over Skype.

According to Bridgers, the "Come Pick Me Up Singer", 44, used his status in the music industry to kickstart her career, but when she denied turning things sexual, Adams shut down any help with her music.

"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. He added, "Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false".

Adams, through his lawyer, disputed Bridgers' description of their relationship, calling it a "brief, consensual fling", and saying he never told her he would withhold her songs, the paper said. "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. They married in 2009, and she split with her music manager the next year to pursue a professional relationship with Adams as well. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologise deeply and unreservedly. She highlighted a letter that Adams wrote to her in November 2014 that said, "I would get in trouble if someone knew we talked like this".

He also addressed the allegations on Twitter, starting off by saying "I am not a flawless man and I have made many mistakes". I guess it's too late to change it now", she sings, later adding: "You said when you met me you were bored.

This is not the first time Adams and Moore have spoken out about their marriage. And you have run out of friends.

Megan Butterworth, Adams's ex-fiancée, also said the singer was controlling and emotionally abusive - behavior that Adams disputed, the New York Times wrote.

ET has reached out to reps for Adams and Moore. "Rats. I'm fucking taking you down". I am happy for everyone and doing my best. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing".

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.
