Steven Tyler's accuser Julia Holcomb, who now goes by Julia Misley, addressed her allegations that the Aerosmith frontman sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old in 1973.
The 65-year-old filed a lawsuit alleging sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to court documents obtained by Rolling Stone in a report published Thursday.
In a statement obtained by Fox News Digital, Holcomb, who is represented by Los Angeles-based attorney Jeff Anderson, explained she was taking legal action due to California legislation that temporarily lifted the statute of limitations for victims of childhood sexual abuse to file lawsuits against their abusers.
"My name is Julia Misley, formerly Julia Holcomb. I am making this statement because, at the age of 65, I have discovered that through a recent change in the law, I have a new opportunity to take legal action against those that abused me in my youth," Misley said in her statement.
