Steven Tyler accused of sexual assaulting a minor decades ago in new lawsuit: report

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is being accused of sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress in a new lawsuit from a woman who claims to have had a relationship with him when she was a teenager.

Julia Holcomb is alleging that Tyler convinced Holcomb’s mother to grant him guardianship over her when she was 16 years old, which paved the way for a sexual relationship from about 1973 to 1976, according to a Rolling Stone report published Thursday.

Holcomb reportedly doesn’t name Tyler in the suit, instead referring to the defendants as Defendant Doe 1 and Does 2 through 50.

The Post has reached out to Tyler’s representatives for comment. Tyler suffered a drug relapse and “voluntarily” checked into rehab in May.

Holcomb has previously opened up about the relationship she claimed she shared with Tyler.

“He had mentioned that he wanted guardianship papers so I could travel across state lines when he was on tour,” Holcomb wrote in 2011 on LifeSiteNews.com. “I had told him my mother would not sign me over to him. I asked him how he had got her to do it. He said, ‘I told her I needed them for you to enroll in school.’”

Holcomb previously alleged she became pregnant after Tyler threw her birth control off the balcony of a hotel room. While he was traveling the country and playing concerts, the couple’s apartment reportedly caught fire with Holcomb, then five months along, inside.

Choking on smoke, she reported crawling to the door — which, she wrote, had three locks on it. “Steven insisted on keeping these locked at all times because he usually kept drugs in the house and he had suffered a break-in at our previous apartment,” she wrote.

She claims that Tyler “told me that I needed to have an abortion because of the smoke damage to my lungs and the oxygen deprivation I had suffered.”
