The accuser, who is now 65 years old, alleges Dylan's intent was to “lower [J.C.’s] inhibitions with the object of sexually abusing her, which he did, coupled with the provision of drugs, alcohol and threats of physical violence."

She claims she's "emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day.”

J.C. says the Blowin’ in the Wind singer sexually abused her multiple times, with some of the alleged assaults occurring in his Chelsea apartment.

This isn't the only legal battle Dylan has faced lately.

The singer -- who has been labeled one of the greatest songwriters of all time -- recently won a fight in Manhattan Supreme Court against the wife of late songwriter Jacques Levy. Claudia Levy went after Dylan asking for a portion of the $300 million the rocker received when he sold his song collection.
