Adams has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, manipulation and abuse. Bridgers and Adams’ ex-wife, Mandy Moore, were among those whose featured in the report.

An exposé published by the New York Times on Feb. 13 accuses Adams of sexual misconduct, emotional abuse and manipulative behavior by a number of female musicians, including his ex-wife Mandy Moore and rising artist Phoebe Bridgers. One allegation comes from a female called Ava, who says she began talking to Adams online when she was only 14 years old. Their communication went from music to explicit texting and, at age 16, a Skype call in which he allegedly exposed himself to the teenager.

Jenny Lewis has spoken out in response to the sexual and emotional misconduct allegations against longtime musical collaborator Ryan Adams.

Lewis, who just unveiled her new song "Heads Gonna Roll" (on which Adams has a production credit) this week, released the following statement on Twitter Friday night (Feb. 15): "I am deeply troubled by Ryan Adams’ alleged behavior. Although he and I had a working professional relationship, I stand in solidarity with the women who have come forward."

Over the weekend, Bridgers — who was one of several women who came forward to the New York Times in an exposé that levelled various claims against Adams — took to her Instagram to address the situation.

Her lengthy Instagram post reads as follows:

It's been a weird week and I wanted to say a couple things. Thank you from my whole fucking heart to my friends, my bands, my mom. They all supported and validated me. They told me that what had happened was fucked up and wrong, and that I was right to feel weird about it. I couldn't have done this without them. Ryan had a network too. Friends, bands, people he worked with. None of them held him accountable. They told him, by what they said or by what they didn't, that what he was doing was okay. They validated him. He couldn't have done this without them. Guys, if your friend is acting fucked up, call them out. If they're actually your friend, they'll listen. That's the way this all gets better.

Ex-wife Moore, who hasn't released a full-length album since 2009, when she married Adams, says "music was a point of control" in her relationship with Adams, and that she was discouraged from working with other producers or managers. This came with emotional and psychological abuse, she says: "He would always tell me, ‘You’re not a real musician, because you don’t play an instrument.'"
