Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler Engaged to Personal Assistant Aimee Preston, 40 Years His Junior
It looks like Steven Tyler, the legendary voice behind Aerosmith, one of the most successful rock bands in history will be heading for the aisle for the third time in the very near future. The 68-year old rock icon and his former personal assistant Aimee Ann Preston, age 28, have been in a romantic relationship for nearly four years and now it seems that the couple is ready to tie the knot.
This Saturday, the Denver-born beauty flashed a superb ring on her wedding finger while the couple attended the annual Hospitality Committee For UN Delegations Ambassadors’ Ball hosted by the Metropolitan Club in New York City. The eye-catching ring was a gray pearl beautifully surrounded by brilliant white diamonds and set in white gold. Although pearl rings don’t necessarily spell engagement rings, the latest trends in engagement jewelry have seen a shift from diamonds to other precious gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds, and natural pearls brimming with refinement and sophistication.
The blonde beauty, who is 40 years his junior couldn’t keep her hands off the legendary rock star at the humanitarian event on Saturday and was obviously delighted to show off the gorgeous pearl ring that has sent the media into a frenzy. Looking ridiculously youthful for his age, Steven Tyler donned a Keith Richards meets Jack Sparrow ensemble, while his alleged fiancee opted for a glamorous chiffon dress.
The ” Walk This Way” singer-songwriter wore a sleek black coat with boots and slacks, accessorized with a moon-and-star necklace, several black and white beaded necklaces and his signature scarf which chromatically matched Aimee Preston’s fabulous dress.The Aerosmith frontman and father of model Mia Tyler, who is expecting her first child, as well as actress Liv Tyler, also sported a new hairstyle, with long, wavy locks featuring auburn highlights and a streak of gray in the front.
Aimee Ann Preston met the ” Dream on” singer in 2012, when she started working as his personal assistant and it wasn;t long before things turned romantic between the two of them. Born in Denver, Colorado, Preston attended the Denver School of Arts and then the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and earned an Associate of Arts in musical theater in 2007. She was married to talent agent Scott Shachter and previously worked as a personal assistant for Donald Trump and Victoria Beckham.
Steven Tyler,who divorced twice ( in 1987 fromCyrinda Foxe and in 2006 from Theresa Barrick) seems to have an affinity for dating women who are younger than him. When he was 27, he dated 16-year old Julia Holcomb who became pregnant but then aborted the baby and in 2013, Tyler was spotted making out with ” All My Children” star Leven Rambin, who was only 26 at the time.
