Best recognized as the eccentric frontman of the rock band Aerosmith, Steven Tyler is undoubtedly one of the greatest singers of all time. The rock icon is not without his vices.

Tyler rose to fame with his debut, Dream On, in 1969, and a year later created the iconic band with four other members. The rock Titans are marking their five decades in the business with a Farewell tour, kicking off in September. "It's not goodbye it's peace out," the band said in its joint statement as they announced the bitter-sweet news.

Steven and Cyrinda tied the knot in 1978 and welcomed a daughter, Mia Tyler, the same year. The couple's marriage started going downhill with Tyler's heavy drug use and an extra-marital affair. It wasn't long before the rockstar began abusing his wife.

The Aerosmith frontman also financed his ex-wife's funeral her cleared her remainder bills after she died in 2002. Cyrinda was married to Keith Waa at the time of her death.

The duo welcomed two kids, a daughter Chelsea, and a son Taj, during their 17-year-long marriage. Despite experiencing severe highs and lows with the Aerosmith frontman, Barrick kept her family life out of the spotlight.

The duo announced their separation in 2005 and finalized their divorce a year later. While Steven's daughter with Barrick, Chelsea, followed in his footsteps, Taj stayed hidden from the limelight.

Steven Tyler's Relationship with Julia Holcomb!

Julia, now 65, claims the Dream On crooner sexually assaulted her when she was 16 while Tyler was an adult. Julia has filed a lawsuit against Steven for "sexual assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress."  

Tyler has denied all claims, but much of it remains true. All accounts show the singer being in a relationship with a 16-year-old Holcomb when he was 27. 

What makes their story more disturbing was Holcomb came from a broken home. She was seeking stability from the singer. Tyler even obtained guardianship of the 16-year-old after Holcomb's mother decided to sign it. 

But Steven had no intention or consideration of adhering to the responsibility of being a guardian to a minor. The rockstar continued to keep a sexual relationship with Holcomb.   

Denying the sexual assault accusations, Steven Tyler claims that Holcomb, who was then 16, consented to their sexual relationship!  

The Sweet Emotions hitmaker regarded Julia as Diana Hall when they were together to keep her identity a secret. In a sick twist of the tale, Holcomb reportedly got pregnant and was convinced to abort the baby. 

Julia claims the abortion and the whole relationship had a traumatic impact on her. The pair's years-long affair was documented in the 2021 documentary movie, Look Away. The flick tells the stories of frequent sexual abuse of young girls in the rock industry. 

In his latest statement, Tyler denies the accusations. But the singer claims that the then-minor Julia consented to the sexual relationship between them.
