Mandy Moore is still struggling to divorce her ex-husband rock star Adams. According to reports, Adams has been refusing to pay spousal support, which is why the former couple can’t reach a divorce settlement.
In fact, it was earlier reported that Mandy Moore filed legal documents in court, requesting the 41-year-old musician to pay her $37,000 monthly while they’re struggling to reach a final settlement. It was also reported that the actress wants Adams to take four of their eight cats. However, Moore noted in court papers that she loves their pets.
“Although I love our pets, it is overwhelming for me to take care of eight of them all of the time.”
Mandy Moore also added in court papers that she hasn’t been able to work properly on her acting because taking care of the pets takes too much of her time. Moore and Adams wed in March, 2009, after they had dated for nearly a year.
In July 2015, Mandy Moore reportedly started dating Dawes guitarist Taylor Goldsmith. In March this year, Moore had a legal battle against a stalker.
The stalker, named Salahudin Moultaali, was arrested three times in the period of two weeks as he praised Satan outside Mandy Moore’s Hollywood Hills home. The A Walk to Remember actress was granted a three-year order against Moultaali. The order says he cannot come near 100 yards of the Tangled actress, her house, vehicles, and places where she’s working.
As the world awaits this fall’s premiere of This Is Us, there are some pop culture moments to remember about Mandy Moore, according to Entertainment Weekly. Although the singer-turned-actress hasn’t released a studio album in nearly seven years, the Tangled actress can definitely be considered a pop culture staple.
Over the years of her musical career, Mandy Moore has released a total of six albums, with her first three albums bringing into this world such big hits as “I Wanna Be With You” and “In My Pocket.” But then the singer went for acting and starred alongside Diane Keaton in Because I Said So, Robin Williams in License to Wed and Chandra Wilson on Grey’s Anatomy.
And then came Mandy Moore’s role in 2010’s animated musical Tangled, in which the singer-turned-actress demonstrated her singing talent. In 1999, Moore released her debut single titled “Candy,” which is to date considered to be her most memorable song.
Mandy Moore’s “Candy” reached No. 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the song received gold status in 1999 for selling more than 500,000 copies worldwide. The pop singer’s debut album titled So Real is still her only platinum-certified album. Four months after the release of So Real, Moore released her second album I Wanna Be With You.
