Bob Dylan, over a six-week period between April and May of 1965 befriended and established an emotional connection with the plaintiff,” the lawsuit said.

Page Six published the lawsuit, which claims that Dylan established the “connection” to “lower [J.C.’s] inhibitions with the object of sexually abusing her, which he did, coupled with the provision of drugs, alcohol and threats of physical violence, leaving her emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day.”

Even though the statute of limitations have passed, the New York Child Victims’ Act allowed the woman to file a suit against Dylan. The accuser filed the lawsuit on the eve of the act’s closure.

Dylan‘s rep responded to the lawsuit by saying, “This 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended.”
