Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams’ marriage became the highlight once again after the actress was questioned about their relationship. Here’s what really happened.
The actress took to Instagram stories and revealed a publication cancelled an interview with her after she refused to talk about Ryan. The actress didn’t reveal the name of the publication. However, she made it clear that they wanted her abusive relationship with the star to be the main topic of discussion.
Mandy Moore Ryan Adams’ marriage
Ryan and Mandy got married in 2009 and stayed together for six years before filing for a divorce. The pair had been extremely private about their relationship, and not a lot is known about it. However, Mandy had given an insight into their personal life years after their divorce.
Appearing on a podcast she said, “I was living my life for him. It was an entirely unhealthy dynamic. Oh, I had no sense of self. I was imperceptible, I was so small in my own world.” Mandy revealed she felt like she was “drowning” when she was married to Ryan.
“It was so untenable and unsustainable and it was so lonely. I was so sad. I was lonely with him,” she said. In 2019, Mandy, along with seven other women, spoke about Ryan’s “pattern of manipulative behavior” in an interview with the New York Times.
“Music was a point of control for him,” Mandy said at that time. “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.”
Ryan eventually came out and apologized. In a letter published in Daily Mail, the singer spoke about his behavior. “There are no words to express how bad I feel about the ways I’ve mistreated people throughout my life and career. All I can say is that I’m sorry. It’s that simple. This period of isolation and reflection made me realize that I needed to make significant changes in my life,” he said at that time.

Mandy made it clear that she does not want to relive the past. She also called out the publication for canceling the interview.
“When they (the publication) were told that I had spoken plenty about a certain subject in my life and would have no further comment (truly there are countless interviews they could pull from, that story is over and there’s nothing more to say.),” she wrote.
She continued, “Any comment I make about said experience becomes clickbait and gives them the energy and time they seek and have already stolen from too many for too long. The refusal to interview someone unless they agree to relieve that trauma publicly? No thank you.”
