About The Sexual Charges Against Bob Dylan
According to the complaint, Dylan “used his celebrity as a singer to supply [the plaintiff] with booze and narcotics, as well as sexually assault her on numerous occasions.”
According to the report, the assault took place in Dylan’s suite at the Chelsea Hotel in New York.
“The 56-year-old allegation is false and will be aggressively contested,” Dylan’s spokesperson told the BBC.
The case was filed in New York Supreme Court on Friday under the state’s Child Victims Act.
The accuser, who is now residing in Connecticut, is only known by her initials, J.C.
She claims the artist, who is 80 years old, has caused her “serious psychological harm and emotional anguish,” and she is demanding unspecified monetary damages.
Dylan, who was born Robert Allen Zimmerman, has sold over 125 million records worldwide over the course of his six-decade career.
In 2016, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first songwriter to do so.
