Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is the subject of a complaint from a woman he allegedly had a relationship with in the 1970s when she was just 16.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, Julia Holcomb filed a complaint against the 74-year-old singer for events that occurred in 1970.
In the lawsuit obtained by Rolling Stone, the plaintiff alleges that Steven Tyler convinced his mother to grant him custody when she was only 16 and he was 25.
Holcomb claims they were together for three years, from 1970 to 1973.
If Steven Tyler is not directly mentioned in the lawsuit, the complainant quotes passages from his memoir, published in 2004.
Tyler wrote in the memoir, without naming the young woman, that he almost had a “teenage wife” and that her parents “were in love with him”. He writes that his parents gave him custody of the girl so he wouldn't be arrested if he took him on tour.
