Has Steven Tyler ‘quietly ended’ things with ‘not nice’ fiancée Erin Brady?

Around Christmas of 2011, Steven Tyler got engaged to Erin Brady. He’s 64 years old, she’s 38 years old. Tyler’s family and friends were somewhat dismayed because many of them felt that Erin is “just not nice” and she went out of her way to be “mean to the family.” I didn’t have any problem believing those negative reports about Erin because… well, she just looks like a mean, entitled golddigger. I know, we shouldn’t judge a book by its bitchface and all that, but seriously. Anyway, time passed and over 2012, it really seemed like Erin was nowhere to be seen. Now Page Six claims that Erin and Steven have “quietly split”. Hunh.

There’s trouble in paradise for Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler and his longtime fiancée, Erin Brady.

According to sources, the “Love in an Elevator” singer has quietly split with Brady — whom he proposed to in Hawaii last year — as he gears up to tour again with Aerosmith. But other sources close to the band say that while Tyler and Brady have gone through a rocky period, the couple still hopes to work it out and get married.

“Steven has quietly ended it with his fiancée,” a music insider insisted to Page Six.

The source added it’s because sober Tyler, 64, has been trying to stay on the straight-and-narrow while touring, and has found it hard maintaining a relationship with Brady, 38.

“Steven has been trying to maintain his lifestyle and to stay clean,” the source said. “The tour is really important to him and the band. So he decided to end it.”

The source added that the rest of Aerosmith has struggled to gel with Brady. “She’s been kind of a Yoko Ono character,” claimed the source. Tyler’s had a contentious history with bandmate Joe Perry, but the two buried the hatchet last year, paving the way for a new album and tour.

But a rep for Aerosmith told us: “Just as any couple goes through trials and tribulations in a relationship, Steven and Erin 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.”

Aerosmith is about to release its new album, “Music From Another Dimension,” marking its first of all-new material in 11 years. The band is also headed on the second leg of its “Global Warming Tour.”

Former “American Idol” judge Tyler proposed to Brady in December in Hawaii, and said afterward that he wanted their nuptials to be “way over-the-top romantic.”

He hinted in March they’d tie the knot in either Hawaii or Thailand, and added of Brady, “We’re birds of a feather.” It would be his third marriage.

Yeah, it sounds less like Erin and Steven have “quietly split” and more like “Steven tried to dump her but she’s clinging and she’s bound and determined to get him down the aisle.” My guess is that they won’t get married before Aerosmith’s tour begins, and that Erin will “wait” for him and unless someone does something drastic, she’ll probably just wait him out for years until he marries her. Followed by a year-long marriage and a quick divorce with a nice settlement for Erin. Because that was her plan all along?

    Not that there aren’t genuine relationships at times but it’s rare in these old rocker cases, what strikes me is all these old rockers going for women half their age or even younger than their daughters sometimes, is there a brain cell radar that can not think “she’s a golddigger” and still they want to marry them or else? Does it mean they’re really that lonely and rather settle with opportunists, prenup or else?

      they mostly dont know other women. from their pov its almost understandable. lots of them werent popular in school and then all of a sudden women are throwing themselves at them, no matter how huge assholes they are, how they smell or how they look. i think it can be hard to really grow emotionally with only being around groupies. (and also to have respect for women in general)

      they just think it will work because they are not that smart and emtionally grown up. artsy types also live in the moment.

        That’s a lot of stereotypes in one short post. I don’t necessarily disagree with all of them, but still…

      • bns says:

        I agree with you. A big part of the rock n roll lifestyle is the fantasy. Never having to grow up. They still have the same mindset that they had at 20. Not all rockers, but a lot of them.

    • V4Real says:

      @dooliloo Agree. I love Steve Tyler and I have been a fan of Aerosmith for a long time. That being said would it kill him and all other aging rockers to find a woman closer to their age. Are they trying to hold on to eternal youth by dating women young enough to be their daughters. What is wrong with a woman in her late 40′s or 50′s. I’m not saying women in that age range can’t be golddiggers but you can pretty much believe a woman of 30 something is only in it for the money.

    These old fools never learn.
    Ronnie Wood is marrying a 31 one year old ffs and he looks like a walking corpse.
    I’m not going to lie, I could use some money, times are hard but I don’t know if I could ever lay down with that and still look myself in the mirror.

    • Really? says:

      Damn, i couldn’t have said it better myself…i think you have a very good point about looking in the mirror, because none of these people (ahem, Rock Gods and Goddeses) are doing that, instead, they’re looking at their reflection in the eyes of a much younger woman who is in turn looking at the reflection of bling and gold in their bank accounts…it’s so obvious to us on the outside, but they are caught up in it all, as if a spell had been put on ‘em. It’s the User’s Illusion. Rock on and all that. Ugh, i like me a real man and a real love, and that means having to face reality, having to face myself! Some days it’s easier than others. Some days, harder. I think somewhere deep down, they know it, too. It’s just that the shiny toys and flashing lights are so distracting.

    She’s only 3 or 4 years older than Liv.

    I am 27 and I would marry Steven Tyler right now if he proposed. And not for the money, I couldn’t care less about it. I’ve been dreaming about this man for 15 years! I would marry him anytime, anywhere. I think think he’s hot and will be hot even on his deathbed, connected to a breathing machine.

    • UNF Joan Jett! says:

      I feel you. I´m in my late 20s and I totally would f*ck and/or marry Joan Jett right away. I don´t care if she is old enough to be my mum, this woman is still hot as hell and she drives me insane since my teens. UNF!

      @ Joanie: If you ever read this, mail me, call me, send me smoke signals!

  5. gg says:

    Wait — she’s 38?? I could’ve sworn she’s at least 45!

  6. Hm says:

    Gosselin! She looks like Kate Gosselin!

    Wait. Didn’t they already get married on the beach in May or something?
