The
woman
identified

has
claimed

gave
her
alcohol

drugs
in
1965
when
she
was
12-year-old.
She
added
that
Dylan
sexually
abused
her
at
his
New
York
apartment
over
a
six-week
period
“leaving
her
emotionally
scarred
and
psychologically
damaged
to
this
day.”

The
lawsuit
added
that
Dylan,
who
was
in
his
mid-20s
at
the
time,
“exploited
his
status
as
a
musician
to
provide
J.C.
with
alcohol
and
drugs
and
sexually
abuse
her
multiple
times.” According
to
the
court
submitted
documents,
the
plaintiff
is
seeking
unspecified
damages
and
a
jury
trial.

The
singer
now
80
years
old
is
accused
of
assault,
battery,
false
imprisonment
and
infliction
of
emotional
distress.
Dylan’s
spokesman
said
the
allegations
were
false.
“The
56-year-old
claim
is
untrue
and
will
be
vigorously
defended,”
the
spokesman
told
BBC.
