BOB Dylan has been sued for allegedly sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in 1965.
The music legend, 80, is accused of giving the girl “drugs and alcohol before sexually abusing her at his Chelsea Hotel apartment,” at the height of his mid 1960s fame, the new lawsuit alleges.
According to the Manhattan Supreme Court papers, the Like a Rolling Stone singer used his platform and fame to gain control of the victim – who is only listed as “J.C.” – “as part of his plan to sexually molest and abuse.”
The suit, filed on Friday, alleges: “Bob Dylan, over a six-week period between April and May of 1965 befriended and established an emotional connection with the plaintiff.”
The singer’s spokesperson told Page Six: ‘This 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended.’
