Mandy Moore Reacts to Ryan Adams’ Public Apology: It’s ‘Curious’ He’s Not ‘Making Amends Privately’

Mandy Moore seems a bit baffled about ex-husband Ryan Adams’ public apology. Over the Fourth of July long weekend, Adams — who was accused of sexual misconduct in 2019 — shared an open letter on the Daily Mail in which he addressed how he had “mistreated people” and his harmful behavior in his past.

During a Monday (July 6) interview on TODAY, anchor Hoda Kotb asked the singer-actress whether she believes that her ex has changed. After hesitating, Moore responded: “You know, it’s challenging because I feel like in many ways, I’ve said all I want to say about him and that situation.”

The This Is Us star then shared her thoughts on how Adams handled saying sorry to the people he’s hurt. “I find it curious that someone would make a public apology, but not do it privately,” said the star, who was married to the musician for seven years. “I am speaking for myself, but I have not heard from him — and I am not looking for an apology necessarily — but I do find it curious that someone would sort of do an interview about it, but not actually make amends privately.”

Adams’ lengthy mea culpa comes more than a year after The New York Times published a report in which seven women accused him of sexual misconduct. The aspiring female artists claimed that the singer dangled his support of their musical careers, but would rescind if they rejected his sexual advances. Moore told the paper at the time, “Music was a point of control for him.”

Moore has since remarried, and has been making music with husband Taylor Goldsmith. He helped her write her latest album, Silver Landings, which was released in March.
