Ryan Adams guitarist Todd Wisenbacker
"This Is Us star Mandy Moore against the musician sickening and embarrassing."
Adams was accused of abuse by several women in a New York Times report published last week. It featured interviews with multiple women accusing Adams of behavior ranging from emotional manipulation to sexual misconduct, including accounts from his ex-wife Mandy Moore, Phoebe Bridgers, singer-songwriter Courtney Jaye, and others. Adams denied the allegations, addressing the Times report on Twitter.
Todd Wisenbaker, Adams guitarist, also shared a statement about Adams. In a post on Instagram, he wrote, this is incredibly hard for me to do but Ryan please get help. There were times when I chose to believe his insane version of the truth because it was easier than believing that anyone is capable of being this much of a monster, Wisenbaker continued. Ive recently learned that pretty much everything hes ever told me is a lie upon a lie upon a lie. There are excuses and denials for everything. Read Wisenbakers statement in full below.
None of them held him accountable, she said. They told him, by what they said or by what they didnt, that what he was doing was okay. They validated him. He couldnt have done this without them. Guys, if your friend is acting fucked up, call them out. If theyre actually your friend, theyll listen. Thats the way this all gets better.
He continued: Ive recently learned that pretty much everything hes ever told me is a lie upon a lie. There are excuses and denials for everything.
Some time ago, I told him to get help and he asked me to help him. I dont regret and will never regret trying to help someone in real need. I believe in forgiveness, redemption and recovery, but my life has become a complete shitstorm of someone elses utter delusion.
Weisenbackr added: I didnt want to say anything because Im actively afraid for the safety of my family, but I do realise that I have a responsibility to speak up. The women that spoke up are brave beyond words.
