Steven Tyler, lead singer of the famous rock band Aerosmith, was accused of sexual abuse by a woman named Julia Holcomb.
Holcomb stated that Tyler abused him between 1973 and 1976.
Stating that he was a minor at the time, Holcomb sued Tyler for sexual abuse, assault and deliberate emotional distress.
According to the news in Sputnik, the lawsuit was filed under California legislation that temporarily waives statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse allegations.
Holcomb claimed that Tyler convinced his mother to give him custody when he was 16, as a result of which he allowed her to live and have sexual relations with him, and they were together until about 3 years after 1973.
While Tyler, who went into rehab in May, did not make a statement on the subject, Holcomb stated in his petition to the court, “I couldn’t resist Tyler’s power, fame and financial situation. Tyler made me feel like we were having a romantic love.”
Earlier, Tyler admitted to having an affair with a 16-year-old girl in his biographical book published in 2011 and mentioned Julia Halcomb in the book.
