Legendary crooner Bob Dylan plied a 12-year-old girl with drugs and alcohol before sexually abusing her at his Chelsea Hotel apartment in 1965, an explosive new lawsuit alleges. The “Blowin’ in the Wind” musician allegedly used his star status to groom, gain the trust of and control the victim “as part of his plan to sexually molest and abuse” her, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court papers, which only identify the plaintiff as “JC” “Bob Dylan, over a six-week period between April and May of 1965 befriended and established an emotional connection with the plaintiff,” say the papers, which were filed late Friday on behalf of JC, now a 68-year-old woman in Greenwich, Conn. The suit alleges that Dylan — whose given name is Robert Allen Zimmerman — established the “connection” to “lower [JC’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.” The alleged abuse by the now-81-year-old singer and songwriter occurred multiple times, and some of the incidents took place at the famed Chelsea Hotel, the suit claims.
