Ryan Adams apologized for his comments regarding his ex-wife, Mandy Moore, on the 11th of October, writing that he was just “trying to be funny,” but it fell flat. The 43-year-old musician said he chooses to and always will remember the best moments they had.
His apology came after Adams tweeted about their failed marriage on the 10th of October, stating that Moore didn’t choose the right person to marry. “She didn’t like the Melvins or Bladerunner,” the star remarked, adding that it was “doomed from the start.”
To most people online, it was clearly a joke, but some people didn’t think it was that funny. When a fan asked if Mandy played a role in his creative process, including for inspiration, Adams stated, “there’s not actually a single love song about her.”
In an interview published on the 9th of October with Glamour, Mandy touched on her marriage to Adams briefly. The 34-year-old Hollywood actress revealed she felt as though she was “spiritually and fundamentally stuck in their relationship.”
I apologize for my remarks. I was trying to be funny. But I have and will always choose to remember the amazing moments.
It isn't classy or ok lessen what was. I am happy for everyone and doing my best.
Thank you for taking the high road, Perez. Wishing you & your fam well. https://t.co/ysoV0Jp7Dh

At the time, Mandy claims people would say they were sorry to hear the news, and she felt like it was the right thing to do, so no one should be remorseful about it all.
According to the long-time star, she would’ve been sorry had she stayed in what she described as an “unhealthy situation.” Mandy got married to him in 2009 but filed for divorce just six years later.
In 2015, multiple publications reported that she had been “unhappy for a while,” and ultimately decided it would be best for both of them to go their separate ways.
In June of 2016, Mandy and Ryan finalized the divorce proceedings, and she went on to get engaged to the Dawes frontman, Taylor Goldsmith.
