Less than a week after Ryan Adams was accused of harassment and emotional abuse in a New York Times article, the American singer's former wife and actress Mandy Moore has opened up about their seven-year marriage.

In the New York Times report published on February 13, Moore was one of seven women who came forward with allegations of abuse against Adams.

The This Is Us actress, was married to Adams from 2009 to 2016, recounted his alleged pattern of abuse on the latest episode of WTF With Marc Maron, which dropped Monday.

"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," Moore said.

The emotional upheaval was the "largest factor" in her decision to marry Adams, Moore said.

"When you feel out of control in a situation, (like) I can't control my immediate family, and the fact that this particular situation blew us up in a way... I guess kind of just thought, I'll create my own family," Moore added.

Moore said she was 23 when she met Adams in Minneapolis while they were both on tour. After they got married, Moore said Adams continued to make music while her professional life got hampered.

"I was living my life for him. Being the mother ... it's an entirely unhealthy dynamic. Oh, I had no sense of self. I was imperceptible, I was so small in my own world," Moore told Maron.

"I think my co-dependency fed into his co-dependency and some other underlying issues that is was the perfect cacophony of madness. I was so not serving myself.... I knew that this wasn't the rest of my life. I knew that this wasn't the person I was supposed to be with, I knew that I wasn't the person I was meant to be," Moore concluded.
