AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler was accused of sexually abusing a minor in the mid-1970s by a woman who introduced herself as an ex-girlfriend.
The woman claimed that she had a sexual relationship with Tyler that began when she was a minor. rolling stone.
Tyler is charged with sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress by plaintiff Julia Holcomb.
The lawsuit alleges that Tyler convinced Holcomb’s mother to give him custody of her when she was 16, allowing the teenager to live with him.
Holcomb claims they had a sexual affair during this time that lasted three years.
Tyler was not explicitly named in the lawsuit, as it named the defendants as Dow 1 and Dow 2 through 50, however Holcomb has spoken publicly about her alleged relationship with Tyler in the past.
The lawsuit also uses quotes from Tyler’s memoir, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, in which he said he “nearly took a teenage fiancee” and that “her parents fell in love with me, signed a paper to have me in custody, so that I don’t get arrested if I take her out of state. I took her on tour with me.”
However, Tyler did not name the “teenage bride” in the memoir. Holcomb was named in thanks.
Holcomb said in the lawsuit that she was “powerless to resist” Tyler’s “power, fame and substantial financial opportunity.”
She also claims that Tyler “forced and persuaded” her to believe they were having a “romantic affair”.
Holcomb claims that she met Tyler just after his 16th birthday (he would have been 25 at the time) when Aerosmith was playing a gig in Portland, Oregon in 1973.
The lawsuit alleges that Tyler drove Holcomb back to his hotel, where they revealed the teen’s age before he allegedly “performed various acts of criminal sexual conduct on her” and then sent her home in a taxi the next morning.
Tyler allegedly bought Holcomb a plane ticket to the next Aerosmith show in Seattle, which the lawsuit alleges was because she was underage and could not legally travel across state lines with him.
After the show in Seattle, Tyler allegedly had several more sexual acts with Holcomb, who flew back to Portland in the morning.
After Tyler became Holcomb’s guardian, the lawsuit alleges that he could easily travel with her without worrying about prosecution.
This timeline appears to match Tyler’s own words from his memoir.
“She was sixteen, she knew how to shit, and there was not a hair on her,” Tyler wrote in his memoirs.
“Considering my bad self is twenty-six and she can barely drive and is sexy as hell, I just fell madly in love with her. She was a cute skinny little tomboy dressed up as Little Bo Peep. She was my heart’s desire, my partner in crimes of passion.”
Tyler allegedly told Holcomb’s mother that he could give her better support than what she received at home and promised to enroll her in the school.
However, the lawsuit alleged that he “failed to deliver on those promises in substance and instead continued to travel with the plaintiff, assault him and supply him with alcohol and drugs.”
Holcomb also claimed that the relationship resulted in a pregnancy in 1975 when she was 17, however she had an abortion at Tyler’s urging after an apartment fire.
She claimed that Tyler said the smoke inhalation and lack of oxygen would be harmful to the baby, however, the lawsuit alleged that a health worker told Holcomb that the unborn baby was not harmed by the fire.
The lawsuit alleged that Holcomb was hesitant to have an abortion, but Tyler threatened to stop supporting her if she did not have the procedure.
Holcomb allegedly left Tyler after the abortion and returned to Portland, where she became a devout Catholic and met her husband.
