Talented two-some Miss Mandy Moore & Ryan Adams have officially said goodbye to their relationship, that according to Adams “allowed [them] both to grow and learn more.”
Adams (33) confirmed the breakup to ‘OK! magazine’, placing the blame on the media attention that surrounded their relationship.
â€œMandy is one of those genuinely sweet angelic people you wish to meet your whole life,â€ Ryan told OK! in a statement. â€œI am grateful for our friendship and how it allowed us both to grow and learn more.â€
So what went wrong? Well according to Adams, though he loved Moore, he hated the media attention that she brought with her.
â€œUnfortunately I am allergic to paparazzi and have found the best antidote to that sort of nonsense is staying behind the guitar and typewriter, staying close to my support group of friends and band mates and not engaging in activities that prevent me from taking care of myself or others,â€ he continued.
Though rumours of the two’s relationship began in March, it was later confirmed that sparks flew between the pair way back in December. The couple did not, however, officially announced their together-ness till May.
In other Moore news, the 24-year-old singer/songwriter/actress revealed to Jimmy Kimmel in a recent interview that there was a time when Justin Timberlake was her number one obsession.
Back in 1999, when boy bands like N’Sync & Backstreet Boys were considered the hottest thing since toasted sliced bread, most 15-year-old girls would have done anything to tour with- or even meet – the boys. But Mandy, who did just that, revealed that it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
“I don’t even think they knew I was there,” she said of her one-time tour mates. “I had a crush on a different guy every day of the week!”
And it seems assumed-sweet-talker Justin Timberlake wasn’t as sweet as he seemed – at least not to the ‘Candy’ singer.
Mandy recalled of one incident: “I walked up to him and he made fun of my feet. He made fun of the size of my feet.
“I think he was trying to be cute and joke around, but I was very self-conscious because I was 5′ 10″ at that point and I had my big size 10 feet, and hadn’t really grown into my body yet.” The “extraordinary” star continued. “And he pointed it out and it was something I was already self-conscious about and I carried it around with me.
“He said, ‘You’ve got big feet for a girl.’ It’s something that still bothers me. I’m sure he doesn’t even remember saying it.”
Moore has previously dated such names as tennis star Andy Roddick, actors Zach Braff and Wilmer Valderrama & DJ AM.
