Ryan Adams apologized after tweeting that he was too high on pills to remember marrying ex-wife Mandy Moore.
It began when Moore, 34, reflected on her failed marriage, as well as her parents’ divorce, in Glamour’s November cover story.
“I couldn’t control what happened to my immediate family, but I could control starting my own,” Moore told the magazine. “Not the smartest decision. I didn’t choose the right person.”
She added that she felt “spiritually and fundamentally stuck” in her marriage to Adams, 43, and that her career and friendships each took a hit until her after divorce.
“I don’t feel guilty for it. I don’t fault myself for it. When people said, ‘I’m sorry,’ I was like, ‘No. Sorry would have been had I stayed in a very unhealthy situation,’ ” she recalled. “I didn’t. I found my way out. And when I did, things opened back up again.”
Adams, who married the “This Is Us” actress in 2009, then tweeted a Perez Hilton report on the interview on Wednesday — and claimed he was on so many drugs that he didn’t even know he’d tied the knot.
“She didn’t like the Melvins or Bladerunner,” Adams wrote. “Doomed from the start… if only I could remember the start lol.”
He added in a since-deleted tweet (via People), “When someone told me we got married I thought they were joking. Then I realized how many painkillers I was taking. Honestly there weren’t enough to numb the shock. Gollygooops.”
Adams then called his ex-wife the “spiritual equivalent of a soggy piece of cardboard,” adding, “But it rains on net-a-porter everyday when you’re trapped inside yourself. Take the money, I’ll take my pride any day.”
When a fan later claimed that Adams likely wrote “75 percent of his love songs about” Moore, he replied, “There’s not actually a single song about her. Like not one. Fact.”
It was Adams’ subsequent tweets that made fans and followers really nervous.
In one, he wrote, “You can only get so low before you quit. I can’t see the waterline lately. This sucks.”
“I want to fall off the edge of the earth into space,” he tweeted Thursday.
In another, he wrote that he was “in pain” and “crumbling.”
After concerned fans reached out the singer, he revealed he was speaking with a grief and crisis counselor, apologizing for causing any panic and explaining he suffers from depression and anxiety.
He also offered a mea culpa for disparaging his marriage.
“I apologize for my remarks,” he tweeted. “I was trying to be funny. But I have and will always choose to remember the amazing moments. It isn’t classy or ok lessen what was. I am happy for everyone and doing my best.”
For her part, Moore, who’s engaged to Dawes singer and guitarist Taylor Goldsmith, seems unbothered and hasn’t commented — on Twitter or elsewhere — about Adams’ disses.
