Report of women's allegations against Ryan Adams prompts responses by music ...

The allegations were reported Wednesday in an article in The New York Times , which said, "In interviews, seven women and more than a dozen associates described a pattern of manipulative behavior in which Adams dangled career opportunities while simultaneously pursuing female artists for sex."

Adams, 44 — a multiple Grammy nominee as a performer who is equally as well known as a producer for other prominent artists — denied the allegations in a statement Wednesday, saying that "the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate."

Referring to allegations from a former musician who told The Times that Adams pursued her sexually when she was a minor, he added: "I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I thought was underage.

Adams told The Times through his attorney that Moore's description was "completely inconsistent with his view of the relationship" and that he was supportive of her "well-deserved professional success."

"Mr. Adams unequivocally denies that he ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage,” said the lawyer, Andrew B. Brettler.

Responding to Hooper, the Tejano singer Veronique Medrano said that "this type of treatment has happened to me in the music industry and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has shrugged it off or just walked away from it."
