Steven Tyler‘s latest accuser – who claims he sexually assaulted her nearly 50 years ago – legally filed her lawsuit against the singer in the nick of time… because the statute of limitations was about to expire.
Jeff Andersonattorney for the alleged victim Jeanne Bellinotells TMZ … he and his client recently decided to file a complaint against Tyler under New York City’s Gender-Motivated Violence Act.
Under that law, Bellino — who claims the 1975 attack happened in New York City when she was 17 — has a much longer statute of limitations… at the end of November.
As we reported, Julia Holcomb Also Tyler sued late last year, alleging that she was sexually abused by the musician in 1973, when she was 16 – and also claiming that he pressured her to have an abortion.
Anderson represents both women in their respective cases.
We’re even told that Holcomb and Bellino plan to serve as witnesses in each other’s cases. Anderson says Bellino first came to him to say she was open to testifying for Holcomb to establish a pattern of Tyler’s alleged behavior.
We’ve reached out to Tyler’s attorney for comment…so far no word back.
