Bob Dylan this should relieve the clan of him . Almost a year ago, a complaint was filed by a woman claiming the singer sexually assaulted her almost 60 years ago. The complainant has just backtracked.

Relief for Bob Dylan. A woman who was suing American singer Bob Dylan claiming he sexually assaulted her nearly 60 years ago has withdrawn her complaint, the artist’s lawyer said on Thursday.

“This case is over (…) We are happy that the plaintiff has renounced this travesty of justice”, indicated in a declaration to the media the lawyer of Bob Dylan, Orin Snyder, while judging “scandalous” that the folder may have existed.

Before a hearing this week in a New York court, the lawyer had argued the existence of emails showing the “inconsistencies” of the charges and suspected the complainant of having removed these elements that could exculpate the folk-rock singer.

Solicited Thursday evening, the lawyers of this complainant, who remained anonymous, did not respond.

The complainant had alleged that Bob Dylan assaulted her over a six-week period between April and May 1965 when she was 12 years old.

The facts had, according to him, partly taken place in his New York apartment located in the Chelsea Hotel.

She also claimed that the star’s behavior had caused her “serious psychological damage and emotional trauma” and that Bob Dylan had threatened her physically.

The singer “abused his status as a musician to supply J.C. with alcohol and drugs, and to sexually assault him on several occasions,” the complaint alleges.

Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016 for “creating new poetic expressions in the great American song tradition”, Bob Dylan, 81, is considered one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time.

Among his most famous songs are Blowin’ in the Wind, The Times They Are a-Changin’, or Like A Rolling Stone. This dark episode now seems behind him.
