“Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years,” the couple said in a statement to Us. “It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.”
The former teen pop star and indie rocker secretly said “I do” in March 2009. After tying the knot, the couple worked on numerous tracks together including 2011 song “Empty Rooms.”
The soon-to-be exes have always kept quiet about their now strained relationship. During a September 2014 interview with BuzzFeed, Adams explained why he hung up during an interview with a Melbourne radio station after being asked about his wife. “I just don’t share at all about my private life,” he at first politely told the interviewer, only to hang up after being questioned again.
“Okay, so I just hung up because I was on the radio getting asked about my wife,” he later told BuzzFeed. “I was really nice about it the first time, and I’m sorry, but I won’t repeat myself. The deal is this: I’m a private person and I’ll be a gentleman and say I’m not talking about my marriage ever. I’ll never talk about it. Ever.”
