Mandy Moore responded to the brief mention in the Star about her spending the evening at boyfriend Andy Roddick’s house. She told fans on her official forum, “In regards to the ‘Star story’…. I feel bad that my parents are being made out to be something they clearly are not. I have a wonderful relationship with my mom and dad. Sure, my parents worry about me, but they are far from being super-strict. They also respect that I am 18 and responsible, therefore they wouldn’t ‘confiscate’ my credit cards for overspending. lol… We laughed at the People magazine mention of this. I even had a friend call and say I could borrow their credit card. Nice hehe.”

Mandy Moore Gets Back To Work
January 7, 2003 – A fan posted on Mandy Moore’s official forum that the singer/actress was in Sydney with boyfriend Andy Roddick at for the Adidas International tennis tournament. Mandy was not down under though, and responded, “Well… I’m quite disappointed to report that I’m writing to you from my home in LA… not gallivanting around my favorite city, Sydney, watching my boyfriend play tennis. Taking nearly 2 months off to relax and spend time with him was amazing, but it was due time for me to return to the real world. In fact, I have 3 photo shoots and a few days of reshoots for ‘How to Deal’ this week. It is nice to be working again though.”
