Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler accused of sexual assault by former teen model

A woman sued Steven Tyler for sexual assault in a New York court Thursday.

Jeanne Bellino, now 66, alleged that Tyler groped her in a New York City phone booth without her consent when she was 17 years old in 1975, according to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital.

Bellino maintained that she met the Aerosmith frontman and the band through a friend after traveling to the city for a fashion show, according to court documents. Bellino had just signed with a modeling agency at the time. Bellino, the friend, Tyler and other bandmates were walking together down 6th Avenue when the alleged groping began.

“As they walked, [Bellino] commented about a song lyric to Tyler,” the complaint states. “Tyler became visibly irritated by [Bellino’s] question, then suddenly Tyler grabbed [Bellino] by the hand and forced her into a phone booth.”

Fox News Digital’s Rebecca Rosenberg contributed to this report.
