Milo Ventimiglia is ‘incredibly proud’ of Mandy Moore for speaking out against ex Ryan Adams (Picture: Getty Images)Mandy Moore was one of the seven women who spoke out against Ryan Adams, accusing him of sexual misconduct and emotional abuse in an expose published by The New York Times.
Mandy claims that she suffered ‘psychological abuse’ during her six-year marriage to musician
Adams and claims he tampered with her career by discouraging her to work with other producers.
She has since broken her silence on exposing her ex-husband and claimed while speaking the truth can be painful, it has been ‘worth it’. Adams has denied all allegations made against him.
But Moore’s This Is Us co-star Milo Ventimiglia has said he is ‘incredibly proud’ of her for speaking up.
In an interview with Access, Milo shared his thoughts: ‘There are things people live through… to be able to have a forum to discuss it and speak about it honestly.

‘If anyone else can take away from that situation of being inspired to let someone they’re not alone… I think that’s a great thing to do.’
Milo’s support for Mandy followed a new interview she gave, where she admitted she ‘felt like she was drowning’ while married to Adams.
Speaking on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, Mandy said: ‘It was an unhealthy dynamic. I was living my life for him… I had no sense of self. I felt like I was drowning.
‘It was so untenable and unsustainable and it was so lonely. I was so sad. I was lonely with him.’
She continued: ‘It’s not like I completely stopped working. I would do things here or there, but it would become abundantly clear while I was working, things would completely fall apart at home.

Adams has previously said that Mandy’s view on their marriage is ‘completely inconsistent’ to his own and he claims he was supportive of her ‘well-deserved success’.
They married back in 2009 and separated in 2015, with their divorce being finalised a year later.
Adams has denied all the allegations made against him in a statement issued to Twitter shortly after the NY Times article was published.
He insists the claims are ‘misrepresented, exaggerated and outright false’.
