In New York, a new lawsuit has been launched against Aerosmith’s lead singer, Steven Tyler. Jeanne Bellino, a former child model, presents serious allegations detailing an unsettling event from the summer of 1975.
Bellino narrates her distressing encounter with Tyler, describing how a friend’s introduction led to their meeting at the Warwick Hotel in New York. A casual conversation on Sixth Avenue took a dark turn when Tyler allegedly became violent following a question about a song lyric.
According to the lawsuit, Tyler forcibly shoved Bellino into a phone booth, where she faced a traumatic assault that involved unwanted advances and inappropriate actions. What’s more disconcerting is that members of Tyler’s group reportedly responded with laughter.
Bellino’s escape involved a struggle, with her resorting to using her knee and tugging at Tyler’s hair. The lawsuit also touches upon another disturbing instance at the Warwick Hotel, where Tyler is said to have made inappropriate advances, which Bellino had to rebuff firmly.

The narrative is chilling as Bellino describes Tyler’s whispered solicitation for her to accompany him to his room. Overwhelmed with fear, Bellino declined and hastily left the premises. A concerned doorman, noticing her anguish, quickly ushered her into a cab. The aftermath of these events was so traumatic for Bellino that she required hospital treatment and has been on continued medication.
It’s noteworthy that these grave accusations follow a similar lawsuit brought forward by Julia Misley a year prior. Misley’s claims also spotlight Tyler, accusing him of sexual assault during her teenage years, encompassing a deeply unsettling narrative involving alleged coercion and abuse.
