It is a relief for American singer and songwriter, Ryan Adams now. The man has been reportedly cleared of allegations of sending sexual messages to an underage female fan, following an FBI investigation.
"Ultimately, the FBI found no evidence that would support charging Ryan with a crime, and closed its investigation, without charges, in the fall of 2019,"Page Six quoted a source as saying.
Back in 2019, The New York Times reported that it has seen 'extensive communication' between Adams and the fan who went by the pseudonym, Ava. It was said that they communicated on different platforms that included Twitter where there were direct messages being used for conversation. Allegedly, they started talking when Ava was 13 and more than 3,000 text messages were sent between the two until she was 16. There were also explicit photographs that Ava was said to have sent to the star.
The girl also claimed that they had video call chats over Skype. Adams reportedly asked Ava, a budding bass player, about her age. "Do me a paranoid favour," he wrote in November 2014, when he was 40 and she was 16, the Times claimed, adding: "Show me you are 18."
Ava, now believed to be 21, replied that she was older than she was. However, she never showed her identity.
Adams, through his lawyer, Andrew Brettler, denied that he "ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage".
