US WEEKLY: Standing right beside her. Shane West supported his A Walk to Remember costar Mandy Moore after she spoke out about her ex-husband Ryan Adams’ alleged abusive behavior toward her during their marriage.

“Warmest hug EVER to the strongest woman I know,” the Nikita alum, 40, commented on the This Is Us star’s Wednesday, February 13, Instagram post.

Moore, 34, and West starred as unlikely teenage couple Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter, respectively, in the 2002 romantic drama, which was adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ novel of the same name. The pair reunited with director Adam Shankman in February 2017. “Welp. These 2 gentlemen are still some of the best around,” the actress captioned a selfie of the trio on Instagram at the time. “Loved catching up with ya, @theshanewest and @adamshankman. My [heart] is full.”

The “Candy” singer accused Adams, 44, of psychological abuse in a New York Times exposé published on Wednesday. “Music was a point of control for him,” she told the newspaper of her ex, whom she split from in January 2015 following nearly six years of marriage. “He would always tell me, ‘You’re not a real musician, because you don’t play an instrument.’”

She continued: “His controlling behavior essentially did block my ability to make new connections in the industry during a very pivotal and potentially lucrative time — my entire mid-to-late 20s.”

Through his lawyer, Adams denied Moore’s claims, which he called “completely inconsistent with his view of the relationship.” He also noted that he supported his ex-wife’s “well-deserved professional success.”

The Tangled star defended her allegations in her Wednesday Instagram post. “Speaking your truth can be painful and triggering but it’s always worth it,” she wrote. “My heart is with all women who have suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. You are seen and heard. #sisterhoodforever.”

Moore, who wed Taylor Goldsmith in November 2018, stepped out on Thursday, February 14, for the first time since the piece was published. A source told Us the songstress looked “super happy” while hanging out with her friends at Saddle Ranch in Los Angeles, adding: “It just looked like a regular, fun girls’ night out with all the girls talking to each other, eating, drinking [and] snapping pics on their cell phones of each other.”

PEOPLE.COM: Days before she discussed how her ex-husband Ryan Adams allegedly held her music career hostage during their marriage, Mandy Moore enthusiastically spoke about returning to singing.

“I’ll be recording music during the [This Is Us] hiatus,” the actress told reporters at a set visit at Paramount Studios last week.

When asked by PEOPLE if her husband Taylor Goldsmith, who is the frontman for Dawes, will be creating new projects with her, Moore was giddy with excitement.

“Yes! With my husband! We have things written, ready to go,” she said. “Our hiatus starts soon, so I’m getting ready to go in the studio.”

This Is Us fans may already be familiar with Goldsmith’s work as he co-wrote an original song called “Invisible Ink” for a season 3 episode, which aired before the couple tied the knot in November. (Moore and Goldsmith got engaged in September 2017 after they’d been dating for two years.)

This Is Us executive producer Isaac Aptaker previously told Entertainment Weekly that the producers had Goldsmith in mind for quite a while. “We wanted to bring him in for something,” he said, adding that Moore “was so excited from the beginning. They collaborate on stuff outside the show, and he’s part of the This is Us extended family, so she was all in.”

Elizabeth Berger, another executive producer on the show, also spoke about Goldsmith and Moore’s chemistry, both on and off the screen. “They just absolutely love working together, and they find a lot of joy from it, so we were just looking for the perfect fit,” she told EW.

Moore revealed her plans for new music less than a week before the release a New York Times exposé, in which she claimed Adams took charge of her music career in 2010, three years after they first met when she was 23.

When Mandy Moore set out to explore her lineage on TLC’s long-running docuseries Who Do You Think You Are?, the This Is Us star thought she had a good idea of what she’d learn about her family tree.

“Mandy was expecting to find English roots for her English grandmother, who was very important to her growing up,” executive producer Lisa Kudrow says. Instead, Moore discovered that her great-great-great-grandparents were married Down Under. “That led to many questions,” Kudrow continues, “at the core of which was, why Australia in 1855?”

Josh Duhamel, Regina King and Matthew Morrison also trace their histories this season with the help of Ancestry.com. (Morrison found ties to the Revolutionary War, while King counts an Alabama civil-rights activist among her forebears.)

Each search begins with accessible documents like birth, death and marriage records. From there, experts keep digging, even using new developments in DNA testing.

In the eight years since the show’s U.S. premiere (the British original began in 2004), no one has walked away unaffected. Participants “can’t escape the impact of the events that influenced their ancestors’ lives,” Kudrow explains. “Change one of those circumstances, and they may not have been born.”

Who Do You Think You Are?, Season Premiere, Monday, December 3, 10/9c, TLC.

BUSTLE.COM: Twenty years ago, music executives in midtown Manhattan’s Sony building were excited about a 14-year-old girl from Orlando. She’d just started her freshman year of high school back home in Florida, the number one song in the country was “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith, and a month later in October 1998, Jive Records would release “…Baby One More Time.” That song would go on to top the charts in the United States and 18 other countries, become one of the best selling singles of all time, and launch Britney Spears into stardom with a propulsion so strong, the Earth would crack and little Britneys would spring from it and fight for their time in the sun.

She apologized for being late, which she wasn’t.

Mandy Moore and I are eating lunch 528 feet from that building where it all started two decades ago. “I was just looking at the Sony building thinking, whoa. If I had told myself 20 years ago that this would be my life, I’d still be doing this in some capacity, it’s insane.”

Mandy recently did an interview with Bustle. You can read the full article here. Click below for images, which were donated by Natalia.

Mandy and Taylor tied the knot this past weekend. Congratulations to the happy couple!

EONLINE.COM: Mandy Moore is officially a bride!

E! News can confirm that the This Is Us star married Dawes musician Taylor Goldsmith in front of family and close friends Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles.

A source told E! News that the ceremony was “an intimate backyard wedding at Mandy’s home that started just after sundown on Sunday evening.”

The private wedding ceremony comes after Mandy hinted to E! News that her ceremony wouldn’t be an over-the-top affair. It seemed like a very convivial gathering. The source added: “There was a small group of family and friends that looked to be about 50 people.”

According to the insider, the look of the wedding was “very boho,” which included “rugs on the floor surrounding the altar. The flower arrangements were beautiful with lots of large feathers.”

After the nuptials, guests then traveled to The Fig House, which is a private event space in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Some attendees include Minka Kelly, Wilmer Valderrama, Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown.

According to another insider, there was a plethora of culinary options at the reception. The source said there was no formal dinner, but there were a “number of food stations around the venue, including meat, chicken, vegetarian, raw food, flat bread, cheese and charcuterie and more.” The catering was all provided by Room Forty.

Like many weddings, guests could also enjoy lots of drinks provided by Pharmacy, which involved “a whiskey station and lots of wine.”

So what about the cake? Well, Mandy and Taylor went with something a bit more “non-traditional.” The insider said, “They’ll have 12 different kinds of cake for people to try.” Yum!

The groom himself also took a moment away from the dance floor to perform at the reception, along with Jackson Brown, Jonathan Rice, Blake Mills and Lenny Goldsmith.

The Tangled star has hinted that her wedding would be something very under-the-radar and low key. “It’s not going to be some lavish affair, its maybe something that isn’t going to require as much planning or at least that’s what I’m telling myself,” she previously told E! News. “I picked a funny profession for someone who doesn’t like all the attention focused on them so I’ve already done my girls weekend.”

Mandy continued: “It was sort of a birthday/bachelorette girls weekend all rolled into one and that was fabulous and fantastic so now I sort of feel like it could happen at a moment’s notice. Maybe I won’t even tell people and they’ll just show up at the house and it will just unfold.”

Back in September 2017, Taylor proposed to the This Is Us star after dating for more than two years. Since then, the actress has been able to celebrate with her close friends on multiple occasions including an unforgettable road trip.

Minka Kelly and This Is Us co-star Susan Kelechi Watson were just some of the ladies who traveled from Los Angeles to Ventana Big Sur.

“We lived our best lives and I’m left blown away by my friends and our good fortune to be able to share these moments together,” Mandy shared on Instagram.

As for any talks of expanding her family, let’s just say her experience of playing a mom on NBC’s hit show has certainly opened her eyes to more possibilities.

“The chapters have sort of lined up pretty perfectly,” she previously told reporters at a TCA panel. “It’s certainly good practice because I want to be a mom one day. Working with babies and kids and everything in between.”

For now, we’ll simply say congratulations and here’s to many years of happiness as husband and wife.
