Stephen TylerSexual assault accuser Julia Misley, aka Julia Holcomb, spoke out after filing a lawsuit for alleged sexual battery in the 1970s. In legal documents, Julia accused Aerosmith frontman for sexual assault, sexual battery, and deliberate infliction of emotional distress.

In a statement, Julia said she wants her actions to “expose the industry that protects delinquent celebrities, clean up and hold accountable the industry that has exploited and allowed me to be exploited for years, along with many other naive and vulnerable children and adults.” ”

Julia also cited legislation allowing her to file a claim, as well as the “exploitation” and trauma she claims she faced at the hands of 74-year-old Steven. “Because I know that I am not the only one who has suffered abuse in the music industry, I feel it is time to take this stand and start this action to speak up and show solidarity with other survivors,” she explained. .

Julia filed the lawsuit just days before the Dec. 31 deadline for California’s Child Victims Act, which lifted the statute of limitations for reporting childhood sexual abuse crimes. The documents do not name Stephen, who is instead identified in newspapers as “Defendant Doe”, but cite the singer’s autobiography, which graphically describes his relationship with a teenage girl.

Stephen’s memoir “Does the noise in my head bother you?” details a relationship, which lasted about three years, with a 1970s teenager named Diana in the book. “She was sixteen, she knew how to be nasty, and she didn’t have a hair on her… with my bad self, she was twenty-six, and she was barely old enough to drive, and sexy as hell, I just fell madly in love with her,” the rock singer wrote.

Steven added in the book that he almost took a “teenage bride” and boasted that her parents “fell in love with me, signed a paper that I got custody so I won’t get arrested if I get her out of state.”

Julia herself said she met Stephen in 1973, just after she turned 16, at an Aerosmith show in Portland, Oregon, after which she allegedly went to his hotel room, where she apparently discussed her age. , she said he “committed various acts of criminal sexual conduct.” on it. In the lawsuit, she added that she felt “powerless to resist” the singer’s “power, fame and considerable financial opportunity” and said he assaulted her and supplied her with alcohol and drugs.

As mentioned in his memoirs, Julia stated that her mother granted Stephen custody of her in 1974 so that they could travel together. Julia later admitted that she became pregnant with Stephen’s son when she was 17, but he forced her to have an abortion after the apartment fire, saying the child could have been damaged by smoke poisoning. The fire is mentioned in Stephen’s memoir, but not the cessation, although it is mentioned in another 1997 Aerosmith autobiography.
