Mandy Moore Called Out A Publication For Cancelling An Interview Because She Didn’t Want To Talk About Her Abusive Ex

February 17, 2021 / Posted by:

According to Page Six, Mandy Moore says she’s “furious that an unnamed publication wouldn’t interview her unless she delved “a certain subject’,” undoubtedly referencing her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Adams who was called out in a 2019 New York Times expose for alleged sexual and psychological abuse by a number of women. In a recent Instagram Story, Mandy detailed how this unnamed publication changed their mind about interviewing her about her life and career once she set some limitations surrounding a topic she feels she’s already sufficiently addressed.

According to Page Six:

Moore, 36, said that her “blood is still boiling” that she was asked yet again about the matter.

“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.

“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,” Moore continued.

The “Candy” singer noted that she has been working in showbiz for over two decades, “but the message this sends is insulting and so out of touch with the cultural discussion around abusive relationships, directly linking someone’s value back to their abuser.”

“The refusal to interview someone unless they agree to relieve that trauma publicly? No thank you,” she added.

Here’s what Mandy posted in her Instagram Stories:

Page Six adds:

Moore and Adams were married from 2009 to 2016. In 2019, Adams, 46 was accused of emotional abuse or sexual misconduct by seven women including Moore in an explosive exposé in the New York Times.

Afterwards Moore said she had no regrets about opening up about the alleged abuse.

“Speaking your truth can be painful and triggering but it’s always worth it,” she wrote on Instagram. “My heart is with all women who have suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. You are seen and heard.”

A couple of years after divorcing Ryan, Mandy revealed in a Glamour interview that the relationship had been “very unhealthy,” which prompted Ryan to drag her on Twitter. However, a few months after the NYT expose came out, Ryan was suddenly a very sorry and changed man. Here’s Mandy reacting to what I’ll call a “soft gotcha” from Hoda Kotb on Today about Ryan’s public apology.

That cat could 100% take a bullet for Mandy. It’s all, “Naw, Hoda, not today!” I honestly don’t know why anybody would want to interview her about her creepy ex when we could be learning all there is to know about her handsome, charming, and magnificent Zoom cat.
