Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler sued unknown bloggers on Wednesday saying they impersonated him on the Web, writing about the death of his mother and other "intimate details" from his life, Reuters reported.
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, Tyler, 60, said he didn't know the real names of those who have impersonated him and girlfriend Erin Brady on the Web, but he believes the same group was responsible for similar postings in 2007.
At that time, Tyler asked Google to remove the blogs, and the Internet company complied.
The latest batch of impersonator blogs, which show pictures of Tyler, the lead singer for the rock group Aerosmith, were posted at Blogspot.com, the lawsuit said. One posting had 31 entries for 2008, and another written by "Brady" had seven entries in recent months, the lawsuit said.
"The impersonated statements relating to (Tyler's) mother are perhaps most hurtful given that she recently passed away," the lawsuit stated.
