Steven Tyler splits from fiancée Erin Brady
Steven Tyler and Erin Brady, his fiancée of one year, have called off their engagement.
A source close to the couple told Page Six: “It’s over for good this time.”
Erin Brady didn’t make an appearance when Steven Tyler holidayed in Hawaii with his family over Christmas and New Year.
This was all the more telling considering Steven Tyler proposed to his girlfriend of five years there; they even had a commitment ceremony there in 2011.
The mole told the website: “His family and entourage never really accepted her and she can do better.”
They added: “They’re still friendly but they’re going their own ways. The engagement is off.”
Steven Tyler will now focus on his 14-date Global Warming tour with his band Aerosmith.
The ageing rocker hinted last year that the couple were going through a tough time, but insisted they were still committed to one another.
Allegations that the pair had split first appeared on The New York Post, the home of Page Six.
The newspaper stated that Steven Tyler, who went sober in the mid 1980’s, wanted to work on his sobriety ahead of his tour with Aerosmith.
Steven Tyler proposed to Erin Brady in December last year and this March the rocker said that their wedding planning was going swimmingly.
“I thought either [Hawaii] or Phuket [in Thailand],” he told Life & Style.
“I’m all about writing <<I love you>> on a beach and surprising somebody. It will be somewhere, but it’s going to be way over-the-top romantic.”
In January, the couple also appeared to be seen taking part in pre-wedding blessing ceremony in Hawaii.
Steven Tyler and his partner were pictured with a woman (thought to be Reverend Alalani) wearing a head dress.
A message on the website of the company who looked after the couple confirmed that Steven Tyler had indeed been involved in a blessing, though wouldn’t expand any further.
The short statement on Kuhina’s homepage simply read: “Yes Reverend Alalani did do a blessings for Steven Tyler but she will not say details.”
And, though they would not expand any further, the company’s admission that “We specialize in simple to elegant Maui beach weddings and vow renewals with photography”, was enough to reinforce any assumptions about the ceremony.
Of the ceremonies on offer, the most expensive (the Kuhina elegance wedding) includes conch shell blowing and a traditional Hawaiian chant (both upon request), a videographer, photography, a special charter for up to 20 people and lots more.
Steven Tyler proposed to Erin Brady over the festive period last year.
After news of their engagement broke it was claimed that Steven Tyler’s children, who include actress Liv, 35, and model sister Mia, 33 were “furious” there were not made aware that their father had proposed until after the news was made public.
While Erin Brady has revealed that when they first got together she told Steven Tyler she wouldn’t tolerate bad behavior.
Erin Brady said: “I just said, <<Hey listen, if you play, I’m gonna play>>. He didn’t really like it when he was on the other side of that scenario.”
Erin Brady, who is 25 years his junior, would have been his third wife.
Steven Tyler’s first marriage was to Andy Warhol model Cyrinda Fox and lasted from 1978 to 1987.
The pair had a daughter together, Mia, who followed her mother’s footsteps into modeling.
Steven Tyler was also married to clothing designer Teresa Barrick from 1988 until 2006.
They had two children together, a daughter, Chelsea, and son, Taj.
The couple divorced in 2006, the same year Steven Tyler entered into a relationship with Erin Brady.
