Though Tyler isn’t immediately named as a defendant – the case is for the time being being levied against “Defendant Doe 1 and Does 2 through 50,” per the mentioned file – Holcomb has long spoken of the alleged abuse that the Aerosmith frontman is mentioned to contain inflicted upon her.
“I met Steven as soon as I was 16 years frail, at a dwell efficiency,” Holcomb communicated in a single interview, with Steven Tyler having been about 26 years frail on the time of the initial meeting. “We began a relationship that lasted about three years.

Predictably, given the bid lawsuit and the aforesaid public feedback from Holcomb, the union finally fell apart – nonetheless now not earlier than Tyler allegedly asked his decidedly young accomplice, who dropped out of excessive college, to marry him.
“After we had been together for some months,” mentioned Holcomb, “he asked me if I was birth to the hypothesis of having a family, just a itsy-bitsy of 1.

I critical my toddler so unparalleled, and I thought – I couldn’t wait to snort him. And he also gave the affect ecstatic as soon as I first told him that I was pregnant. And within a couple of months, he asked me to marry him.”
Nonetheless, Tyler’s fogeys “expressed anguish” about these plans and “weren’t as supportive as I had hoped,” which, per Holcomb’s memoir of the “trainwreck,” space in movement the deterioration of the in unhappy health-steered relationship.
“It gave the affect that he [Tyler] had a commerce of coronary heart. He didn’t desire to fetch married to any extent extra, and I was very offended, and I was now not timorous about telling him that I felt that he had truly betrayed my belief. We returned to Boston, the put we had our rental, and we were upright form of in limbo. I didn’t truly know the contrivance it used to be all going to work out. I upright thought, ‘I’ll contain the toddler, and we’ll upright are residing together.’
“He left on tour, and he made up our minds to head away me there on the rental because I was about five months pregnant. I don’t know for certain how a long way alongside I was because I had now not viewed a health care provider. … I had no education, I dropped out of excessive college, I didn’t contain a driver’s license, I couldn’t race wherever, I had no money of my contain, and I had had no pre-natal care.”
Tyler is mentioned to contain called to establish in one day of evenings, nonetheless “after about two weeks the meals in the rental used to be running low,” at which point the vocalist purportedly enlisted early Aerosmith member (and childhood friend) Ray Tabano to raise her grocery browsing.
“I was so enraged because I had been cooped up in that rental for two weeks, and I was gonna fetch to fetch out of the dwelling. I sat there by the window upright waiting for Ray to approach support. He arrived, I let him in, and I don’t be aware what came about after that. However I awoke in a fireplace.
“Ray used to be gone, and the rental used to be on fire – there used to be smoke in each space. I could possibly well presumably now not gaze the leisure nonetheless smoke. I knew that I had to fetch out of there snappy because I couldn’t breathe. … I made my come to the entrance door, and it used to be locked. There were three locks on that door; all three of them were locked. And the bar lock used to be jammed.”
With flames and smoke having rendered the different exits inaccessible, in accordance to Holcomb, she “crawled into the fire,” which is ostensibly the put the responding firefighters realized her.
“After I awoke in the successfully being facility, I had smoke inhalation, and the doctors had thought I wouldn’t continue to exist because they’d checked my oxygen phases and they were very low. They mentioned if I lived, I could possibly well well contain brain injure. However I was heavenly; I awoke, I was in a scheme to answer to their questions.
“And I was in the successfully being facility for a total lot of days, and Steven got here to me and he mentioned that I critical to contain an abortion. That used to be the put I was when he presented the hypothesis of my abortion. … His words to me were that I had to contain the abortion shimmering now or the doctors wouldn’t scheme it because I was to this point alongside. He critical me to contain that abortion earlier than I left the successfully being facility.
“I upright kept pronouncing ‘no’ till he placed the decision between him and the toddler – that I was going to must race dwelling if I made up my thoughts to sustain my toddler. I upright couldn’t imagine my lifestyles with out him [Tyler],” persevered Holcomb.
Holcomb also described the abortion in graphic detail, extra claiming that Tyler had been “snorting cocaine” by her aspect whereas it used to be taking space. Though there are two sides to every sage, it goes with out pronouncing that the above-described wretchedness (and the alleged abuse therein) remains entrance of thoughts for Holcomb some five decades later.

Meanwhile, Holcomb claims that she used to be subjected to “involuntary infamy” with the publishing of Tyler’s memoir, which contains an acknowledgement for (among a multitude of others) a “Julia Halcomb.”
“However toward the live issues began to derail. We bought so messed up on medication and were so out of sustain an eye on that the unlit aspect began taking up,” Tyler wrote in his autobiography, readily acknowledging that the alleged sufferer’s fogeys (reasonably carelessly) “signed papers over for me to contain custody, so I wouldn’t fetch arrested if I took her out of dispute.”
“And whereas I was at streetlevel, our rental nearly burned down and she or he injure up in the successfully being facility with smoke inhalation,” reads Tyler’s model of events, which were printed after Aerosmith’s autobiography described the topic in a long way varied phrases. “I went to gaze her in the successfully being facility and that’s when actuality slapped me in the face. Whereas you treasure someone, space them free. And I upright had to let her race. She went support to her fogeys, nonetheless I will soundless gaze her in the songs we sang together.”
