According to the New York Post
lead singer Steven Tyler
has dismissed as "absolutely false" reports that he has split with his fiancée, Erin Brady
A representative for AEROSMITH
did not deny there was trouble in the relationship, but told the paper, "Just as any couple goes through trials and tribulations in a relationship, Steven
are asking for their privacy at this time. They are engaged to be married and each is committed to their sobriety. Any claim to the contrary is absolutely false and misleading."
Previously an accountant for Tyler
on tour, Brady
told Oprah Winfrey
in a 2011 interview that although she bore witness to the worst of Steven
's bad-boy behavior, she knew his ways could be reformed and she wanted to be the one to do it.
"I saw him, how he behaved… badly," she said, according to ETOnline.com
, telling Oprah
she had to step up to the plate as the womanizing continued when their relationship became romantic. Her strategy was to "play" as he would when Tyler
would stray, which he admits was a wake-up call and an instigator towards treating the women of his life with the respect they deserve.
"There was some behavior I am ashamed of and I shouldn't have done," Steven
explained. When asked bluntly if he believed he could remain monogamous with Erin
confidently replied that he could. "I don't want to hurt anybody again," he said. "For all the divorces I've had I've hurt those girls deeply."Steven
have been dating for six years, since Tyler
divorced Teresa Barrick
. He was also married to Cyrinda Foxe
from 1978 to 1987.
