Last week, the 75-year-old Aerosmith frontman responded to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Tyler gave a lengthy set of defenses against the claims made against him by Julia Missley.

Additionally, Missley’s attorney claims that Rocker is “gaslighting” her.

Aerosmith frontman claims minor consented to have sex with him

Tyler says that Missley, formerly Julia Holcomb, had consented to having sex with him, and that she had immunity as his legal guardian at the time of the alleged incidents.

He requested that the lawsuit be dismissed in its entirety, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Tyler’s response to Misley’s lawsuit consists of 24 affirmative defenses that deny all of her charges against him. One alleges that Missley “suffered no injury or damage as a result of any action by Defendant.” Furthermore, “if it is determined that the plaintiff has been damaged, no such damage was caused by the defendant.”

Missley, who had a sexual relationship with Tyler in the 1970s when she was just a teenager, filed a lawsuit against Tyler three months ago for sexual assault, sexual battery and intentionally causing emotional distress.

She was successful in filing the lawsuit before the December 31 deadline for California’s Child Victims Act, which removes the statute of limitations on reporting childhood sexual abuse crimes.

Tyler previously revealed he persuaded the girl’s mother to grant him guardianship

PEOPLE has reportedly obtained a copy of the complaint. While the document does not identify Tyler by name, the allegations are consistent with comments the musician made public in his 2011 memoir Does the noise in my head bother you?

In the memoir, Tyler discusses his relationship with an unnamed 16-year-old girl. Misley later directly named Tyler in a statement released after filing the complaint.

Misley cited Tyler’s memoir “directly” in the complaint and claimed that she persuaded her mother to grant her guardianship over his back when she was just 16 years old.

In doing so, Tyler was able to have sex with her, something she was “powerless to resist”, as Tyler had “power, fame, and substantial financial capability”.

Tyler portrayed the situation differently, claiming in his memoir that he “almost took a teenage bride” because “her parents fell in love with me, she signed a paper giving custody of me, so I won’t be arrested if I take him.” out of state. I took her on tour with me.

Alleged victim’s lawyer says Tyler “gaslighting” Misley, who became pregnant with his child in 1975

Missley became pregnant in 1975 and claimed that Tyler convinced her to have an abortion. After the procedure, she eventually left Tyler and returned home to Portland. Misli married and became a devout Catholic.

Misley’s attorney, Jeff Anderson, called Tyler’s response “gaslighting” and said that Rockstar used “a fake legal guardianship to avoid prosecution for sex crimes”.

A rep for Tyler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
