American songwriter Bob Dylan has been sued at the law court for allegedly drugging and taking advantage of a minor in 1965.
According to the suit, Dylan befriended the 12-year-old girl in 1965. The songwriter established an emotional connection with the minor to sexually assault her. The suit also alleges that Dylan used drugs, alcohol, and threats of physical violence to manipulate the minor leading to her having mental health issues.
Dylan’s spokesperson refuted the claims in an interview. “The claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended,” he said. The songwriter is expected to defend himself in court in the coming months.
