Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has been accused by a woman of forcing her to abort her baby when she was 17 years old back in the 1970s.
The accuser, Julia Holcomb, filed a lawsuit citing Tyler's own 2011 memoir in which he recounted his relationship with her at the height of his fame.
An excerpt from Tyler's memoir reads, "With my bad self being twenty-six 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 stated in the lawsuit that she met Tyler in Oregon in 1973 and engaged in a "three-year, drug-fueled affair" which Holcomb alleges her mother supported.
Holcomb did an interview with Tucker Carlson in 2020 and said, "I met Steven Tyler when I was just 16 years old, and he became my legal guardian. He made the decision that he wanted me to have an abortion and it didn’t really matter how I begged to keep my baby, that decision really wasn’t going to be in my hands."
If what Holcomb says is true, it puts a major asterisk on Steven Tyler's legendary career. Of course, Americans will have to wait and see as the court system finds the truth and delivers justice.
