Several women have accused rock singer Ryan Adams of sexual misconduct.
The New York Times released a report of the allegations, where women said Adams was manipulative, verbally abusive and offered career opportunities in exchange for sex.
One woman said Adams threatened not to release the songs she recorded on his record label PAX-AM when she ended the relationship they had while recording.
The report also includes accusations from Adams’ ex-wife Mandy Moore, who said he was psychologically abusive during their relationship.
Adams went on Twitter to say he apologizes “deeply and unreservedly” for anyone he may have hurt, but he also said the New York Times article was inaccurate and exaggerated.
Adams’ fame grew in the early 2000s with the release of his album Gold and songs such as New York, New York.
