Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler sued in the 1970s for allegedly sexually assaulting children

Los Angeles: A woman who previously said Steven Tyler had an illegal sexual relationship with her as a teenager is now suing the Aerosmith frontman for sexual assault, sexual violence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit, filed by Julia Misley, was filed Tuesday after a 2019 California law that gave adult victims of child sexual assault a three-year window to file lawsuits over decades-old assault cases. Saturday is the deadline to make such claims.

Misley, 65, formerly known as Julia Holcomb, said in a statement she wanted “to seize a new opportunity to take legal action against those who abused me growing up.” The Associated Press does not name victims of sexual assault unless they publicly identify themselves.

Although Tyler is not named in the lawsuit, Misley did identify him by name in the statement, which was issued by the law firm Jeff Anderson & Associates. She has also shared her experiences with Tyler in previous interviews, and Tyler has spoken about a relationship with a teenage girl in two books published in 2011 and 1997. The acknowledgments section of his memoir Does the noise in my head bother you? thanks a “Julia Halcomb” who Misley says is a reference to her.

Tyler representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday. Rolling Stone first filed the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that Tyler “used his role, status and power as a well-known musician and rock star to access, groom, manipulate, exploit and sexually assault Misley over a three-year period.” . Some of the abuse occurred in Los Angeles County, the lawsuit states. As a result, she suffered severe emotional injury as well as economic loss, the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit states that Misley met Tyler at one of his shows in Portland, Oregon in 1973 and was later invited to Tyler’s hotel room, where she said she told him she was 16 years old. Tyler would have been 25 or 26 at the time. It said he was involved in “various acts of criminal sexual conduct” against Misley.

He had sexual acts with her after several other shows and became her legal guardian in 1974 so she could travel to him with shows, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleged that Misley became pregnant as a result of having sex with Tyler in 1975 and later forced her to have an abortion.
