US Judge Dismisses Sexual Assault Case Against Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler from 1975

A U.S. judge has dismissed a sexual assault case against Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, ruling that the alleged actions from 1975 did not pose a “serious risk of physical injury” to the plaintiff.

The lawsuit, filed in November under New York City’s Victim of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Act, was brought by former model Jeanne Bellino, who was 17 at the time she encountered Tyler, then 27. Bellino claimed that Tyler pushed her into a phone booth while they were walking down New York’s Sixth Avenue with Tyler’s entourage and assaulted her.

According to the claim filed by Bellino’s legal team, Tyler allegedly “stuck his tongue down her throat” and groped her while she was held against the wall of the phone booth. The filing also alleged that Tyler simulated sex with Bellino while others in his entourage laughed and bystanders watched without intervening.

Bellino further alleged that Tyler assaulted her a second time on the same day, at his hotel.

The lawsuit detailed Bellino’s ongoing suffering, including “great pain of mind and body, severe and permanent emotional distress, physical manifestations of emotional distress, embarrassment, humiliation, physical, personal, and psychological injuries” stemming from the alleged assault. She purportedly required hospital treatment afterward and continues to take medication to cope with the trauma, citing long-term physical injury associated with the incident.

However, ruling in Tyler’s favor, US District Judge Lewis Kaplan determined that Bellino’s accusations against the singer were not admissible under the law. This decision was based on the conclusion that Tyler’s actions did not present a “serious risk of physical injury.”


Bellino must submit her case again by March 13.

Tyler is presently involved in a legal dispute regarding accusations of sexual assault against a minor. Julia Misley, formerly known as Julia Holcomb, is bringing the lawsuit against him. The lawsuit alleges sexual assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, purportedly happening during a three-year relationship she had with the singer in the mid-1970s.

In his 2011 memoir titled “Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?”, Tyler discusses his involvement with a 16-year-old individual whom he refers to as a “girlfriend to be”. He claims that her parents granted him custody so he could travel with her out of state. Mentions of this relationship also appear in the Aerosmith biography “Walk This Way”, where Tyler describes it as a “tricky situation all around.”
