A woman has sued Steven Tyler because she says they had a sexual relationship when she was 16 and he was 24. Rolling Stone says that the lead singer of Aerosmith is being accused of sexual assault, sexual battery, and causing emotional distress on purpose.
The lawsuit also says that he made her have an abortion against her will. The lawsuit was filed under the California Child Victims Act, which says that people who were abused as children can temporarily stop the clock on the statute of limitations.
Tyler, who is now 74, is not named in the lawsuit, but the woman who filed it, Julia Holcomb, has talked in public about what she says happened when Tyler was about 25 years old. She says that they were together for three years.
The lawsuit quotes from Tyler’s 1997 memoir, in which he says that he “almost took a teenage bride” and that the girl’s parents “signed a paper giving me custody so I wouldn’t get arrested if I took her out of state. I took her on tour with me”.

Holcomb says that Tyler drugged and drank with her. She says that when she was 17, the singer talked her into having an abortion because she was pregnant with his child.
Tyler allegedly “coerced and persuaded [Holcomb] into believing this was a ‘romantic love affair,'” according to the complaint. She says that Tyler “performed various acts of criminal sexual conduct” on her at a hotel after they met at an Aerosmith show in 1973.

Tyler did not name Holcomb in his memoir. Instead, he wrote about a teenage girl he did not name: “She was sixteen, she knew how to be mean, and there wasn’t a hair on it.”
He said: “With my bad self being 26 and she barely old enough to drive and 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.”

Holcomb says that she did not agree to be mentioned in Tyler’s memoir, which instead names a “Julia Halcomb,” which is just one letter off from her name. In an essay from 2011, Holcomb wrote about the supposed experience.
“I became lost in a rock and roll culture. In Steven’s world it was sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but it seemed no less chaotic than the world I left behind. I didn’t know it yet, but I would barely make it out alive,” she said.
