(NEW YORK) JUST IN: Bob Dylan is being sued by a woman who says the US singer-songwriter sexually abused her in 1965 when she was 12. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.18: It says the abuse took place at Dylan’s apartment in New York’s Chelsea Hotel: Dylan’s spokesman told the BBC “the 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended”.

#AceDailyNews says Bob Dylan denies sexually abusing girl in 1965: Her legal case alleges the rock star “exploited his status as a musician to provide [her] with alcohol and drugs and sexually abuse her multiple times”, and used threats of physical violence under ‘Child Victims Act’ implemented by Gov.Cuomo in 2019 ….

What is the Child Victims Act?

New York State’s Child Victims Act was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019.It allowed survivors of childhood sexual abuse to file a case which had already been time-barred or expired, and gave them a year to do so.That one-year window was then extended because of disruption to court services during the pandemic and ends this week, on 14 August.Mr Cuomo called it a “pathway to justice” for people who allege they were abused when under-age and was intended to help “right wrongs that went unacknowledged and unpunished”.

The Nobel Prize-winning singer, now 80, is accused of assault, battery, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress.

The accuser, who is now 68 and lives in the state of Connecticut, is only identified by the initials JC.

She said the singer had caused her “severe psychological damage and emotional trauma”, and is seeking unspecified damages and a jury trial.

Dylan had become a major star by 1965

According to his accuser, the star carried out “predatory, sexual and unlawful acts”, which were allegedly “done intentionally by him to her without her consent”.

She claimed to have suffered “severe mental distress, anguish, humiliation and embarrassment, as well as economic losses”.

Her legal documents were filed on Friday at the New York Supreme Court under the state’s Child Victims Act. The claim was submitted a day before the closure of a temporary legal “look back window” in New York, which allowed historical abuse allegations to be filed.

Dylan – who was born Robert Allen Zimmerman – has sold more than 125 million albums around the world during a career spanning six decades. His best-known songs include Blowin’ In The Wind and The Times They Are a-Changin’.

In 2016, the Grammy and Oscar-winner was given the Nobel Prize in Literature, becoming the first songwriter to win the prestigious award. He was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012 by then-President Barack Obama.
