Milo Ventimiglia Supports Mandy Moore After She Alleges Abuse by Ex Ryan Adams
Milo Ventimiglia is in Mandy Moore’s corner always, whether it’s on screen on This Is Us or off it. Earlier this week, Ventimiglia expressed support for Moore after she opened up about the alleged abuse she endured during her marriage to her now ex-husband, musician Ryan Adams.
Us Weekly reported on Ventimiglia’s heartening comments during an Access interview, which began with, “There are things that people live through, so to be able to have a forum to discuss it and speak about it honestly, you know, I’m incredibly proud of Mandy for just being who Mandy is, which is a very giving, inspiring woman.
Ventimiglia continued, saying, “And if anyone else can take away from that situation of being inspired to let someone know that they’re not alone in a feeling, it’s like, I think that’s a great thing to do.”
Moore was one of seven women who have come forward with allegations against Adams that include varying acts of emotional and sexual abuse, which were first reported on in an extensive Feb. 13 New York Times report. Moore, who split with Adams in 2015, told the newspaper that “music was a point of control for him,” Moore said. “His controlling behavior essentially did block my ability to make new connections in the industry during a very pivotal and potentially lucrative time — my entire mid-to-late 20s.”
Adams refuted Moore’s claims via his lawyer. He also called Moore’s allegations “completely inconsistent with his view of the relationship.”
Other co-stars have come forward to support Moore addressing the alleged abuse publicly. Shane West, who starred with Moore in the 2002’s A Walk to Remember, told Moore via Instagram, “Warmest hug EVER to the strongest woman I know.”
We wholeheartedly support Moore’s courage too — and it’s a joy seeing her career and personal life blossoming after she endured such a challenging decade in her life.
