Misley sued Tyler in 2022 for sexual abusesexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

In her shocking lawsuit, Misley claimed she met Tyler when she was 16 at an Aerosmith concert. Tyler was 25 years old at the time.

She said he invited her back to his hotel room. She accused the singer of “committing several acts of criminal sexual conduct.”

Misley said the two started dating after meeting. She said Tyler asked her mother to sign paperwork to give him custody of Misley.

The prosecutor said her mother never signed the papers. Misley said she traveled with Tyler, where he supplied her with alcohol and drugs – and continued to assault her.

In 1975, Misley claimed she became pregnant with Tyler's child. She said he asked her for an abortion. Tyler allegedly claimed that the child could have birth defects due to being involved in an apartment fire before she discovered the pregnancy.

Misley decided to terminate the pregnancy. She broke up with Tyler and moved back home, the lawsuit alleged.

In her lawsuit, Misley pointed to passages Tyler had included in his memoir.

In his 2011 memoir, Tyler wrote how he “almost took teenage tokens” after the girl’s “parents fell in love with me [and] signed a paper for me to get custody so I wouldn't get arrested if I took her out of state. I took her on tour.”

Tyler demanded that the emotional distress claim be dismissed. He said the words in his memoir were protected by the First Amendment. He argued that Misley had consented to the actions she now complained about.

His lawyer added: “[Holcomb’s] In an effort to recast her very public, multi-year relationship with Tyler as a black-and-white case of child sexual abuse, critical facts are omitted and others distorted.”

In March, the judge granted Tyler's request to dismiss the emotional distress claim.

Now Tyler and his lawyers have asked the court to award them legal fees for the work done to achieve the victory.

His lawyers said: “These public statements – whatever their perceived impact [Misley]– constitute a typical protected expression. Moreover, they were made in 1997 and 2011 – more than eleven years before she filed a lawsuit. [Misley] therefore recklessly caused Mr. Tyler to incur more than $142,000 in legal fees to contest her baseless claim, plus approximately $12,930 in additional costs for filing this motion and the anticipated response and argument to this motion.”

Misley has not yet responded.
