Best Coast, Jason Isbell, Laura Marling Respond to Ryan Adams Allegations
A number of prominent musicians have spoken out in the wake of the allegations of emotional abuse and sexual misconduct against Ryan Adams.
 
He was accused of controlling and manipulative behaviour like rescinding professional offers and threatening women's careers when they spurned his sexual advances, as well as conducting an inappropriate relationship with an underage girl.
 
Adams has denied all allegations.
 
But in addition to women like Mandy Moore and Phoebe Bridgers, who went on-record with details of Adams' controlling behaviour (especially when it came to music), many other artists have now shared similar experiences in the music industry and criticized the support system that allows such behaviour to go unpunished.
 
Some of Adams' past collaborators and tourmates have also spoken out about the allegations, sharing their support for the women who have come forward with their stories of abuse.
 
Jason Isbell, for instance, responded to Twitter users asking if he knew about Adams' alleged behaviour. He denied having any knowledge. Nevertheless, Isbell asserted that he believes the allegations.
 
Carl Newman of the New Pornographers, meanwhile, recounted an anecdote about witnessing Adams be "a complete piece of shit," referencing the way he treated his girlfriend.

Other recent collaborators like Miley Cyrus, Liz Phair and Jenny Lewis have yet to publicly comment on the allegations.

UPDATE (2/15, 9:50 a.m. EST): Liz Phair and Karen Elson have shared statements on the allegations facing Adams. Without going into detail, Elson said that she also had "a traumatizing experience" with Adams. Phair suggested on Twitter that while her own experiences weren't as "personally involving" as those in the Times piece, their collaborative record ended "and the similarities are upsetting."
