Bob Dylan’s sexual abuse allegations


May 21, 2017
Send in the clowns. I believed it immediately. It just seems TOO random for someone to come up with something like this right now..?

A lawsuit filed against Bob Dylan earlier this week alleged that the musician sexually abused a 12-year-old girl in 1965. But Dylan scholars have contested the accusations levied in the suit, noting that the time and place of the allegations don’t square with Dylan’s touring schedule at the time.
The suit claims that Dylan “befriended and established an emotional connection with the plaintiff,” referred to as "J.C." in court documents, over a “six-week period between April and May of 1965.” It further alleges that Dylan sexually abused J.C., supplied her with drugs and alcohol, and threatened her with physical violence, all of which left her “emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day.”

The crimes detailed in the suit allegedly took place in New York's Chelsea Hotel in April and May. But Dylan was overseas for the majority of May, playing close to a dozen dates in England, which are detailed on He also toured the West Coast in April, playing shows in Berkeley, Calif. (April 3); Vancouver, British Columbia (April 9); Portland, Ore. (April 23); and Seattle (April 30). Swedish researcher Olof Bjorner, who has rigorously documented Dylan's live performances and recording sessions, has also accounted for these shows on his website.
