Steven Tyler and Erin Brady Engaged, Family Disgruntled

Steven Tyler Engaged - Steven Tyler’s family members are disgruntled after after Erin Brady, girlfriend of Tyler, gets engaged and flashes a sizable diamond ring on her hand while in Maui on Christmas day. The family were unaware of the alleged marriage proposal and are no fan of the 38-year-old Brady, who has been dating the 63-year-old Aerosmith frontman since 2006. They claim she is “not nice” and has been “mean to the family.”

The alleged engagement would be the third marriage for Tyler, who recently told Oprah Winfrey on the OWN channel that he was “ashamed” of his womanizing past. Holding hands with Brady, he appeared earnest about turning a new leaf and said it was possible for him to be monogamous.

“I don’t want to hurt anybody again. For all the divorces I’ve had, I’ve hurt those girls deeply. There was some behavior that I’m ashamed of and I shouldn’t have done,” Tyler said.

It’s true that Brady has displayed some not-so-sweet emotion in the past.

Four years ago she got into a knock-down-drag-out fight with a female Aerosmith fan at the Pangaea nightclub in Hollywood, Fla.

According to witnesses, Brady exchanged words with the woman and then the pair got into a full-on brawl — slapping, punching, and pulling hair.

Tyler has been married twice before – to David Johansen’s ex-wife Cyrinda Foxe in 1978 and, 10 years later, to Teresa Barrick.

Will the third time be the charm? His own memoir would suggest otherwise. In “Does the Noise In My Head Bother You?” the “American Idol” judge says it’s tough to teach an old dog – and he’s definitely a dog – a new trick.

“If you ever meet guys who have had three, four wives, you know they keep getting married to the same woman over and over,” Tyler writes. “They pick a new woman who’s just like the old one every time.”

In the book, Tyler calls Brady a “tough chick” and reveals that the two were in rehab together at California’s Las Encinas Hospital in 2007 — one of eight times Tyler was in rehab.
