According to papers filed at the Manhattan Supreme Court, Dylan used his fame to gain control of the victim, who is referred to as, "J.C," – “as part of his plan to sexually molest and abuse.”
The lawsuit alleges: “Bob Dylan, over a six-week period between April and May of 1965 befriended and established an emotional connection with the plaintiff."
It is unknown how much the lawsuit is for as J.C is seeking a jury trial.
J.C.’s lawyer, Daniel Isaacs, told The Post on Monday, “The complaint speaks for itself,” and the declined to comment further.
In response, Dylan's spokesman told The Post the same day that, “This 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended.”
What is Bob Dylan's net worth?
This is not the first lawsuit to come Dylan's way.
Back in July of 2021, Dylan won an unrelated lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court after being sued by Claudia Levy, the wife of late songwriter Jacques Levy, who was looking for part of the $400 million he received after selling his song catalogue to Universal Music Publishing Group.
Levy argued that her late husband's estate was owed 35 percent “of the purchase price” Dylan got, but his lawyers argued that under a 1975 contract that Dylan and Jacques signed, the estate was only entitled to 35 percent in royalties, and a judge agreed.
“The 1975 agreement vested in Dylan complete ownership and control of the copyrights to the compositions and limited Levy’s rights to 35% of the specified compensation, which consisted primarily of licensing royalties and in no way can be construed to include a portion of Dylan’s sale of his own copyrights and royalty rights,” Judge Barry Ostrager wrote in his decision.
While Levy was seeking $7.25 million, even if Dylan had lost, it would not have put a dent in his multi-million dollar net worth.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, as of 2021, Dylan has an estimated net worth of $350 million.
His substantial net worth comes from his career as a musician and song-writer.
