Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler is facing another lawsuit regarding sexual assault allegations, this time filed by a 66-year-old woman named Jeanne Bellino.
Jeanne Bellino’s attorney, Jeff Anderson, has stated to People that her client has suffered ‘psychological, emotional and physical damage’ after Tyler assaulted her while she was 17 and he was in his late 20s:
“Jeanne is now 66 years old and suffered in silence and humiliated shame for so many years, and had the courage to now tell her story.”
Bellino claimed that she met Steven Tyler in 1975 while modeling for a children’s modeling agency. She states that she was attending a fashion show on the day of the assault and a friend of hers managed to get the chance to meet the band after the show.
Moreover, she claimed that soon after meeting Steven Tyler and co., they decided to leave the hotel and walk to 6th Avenue, and apparently, while they were walking Bellino asked Tyler a question about a lyric and he, annoyed by the question, dragged her into a phone booth nearby and started to kiss, grope and stimulate sex with her.
