In addition to his two marriages and long-term relationship with Aimee, Steven has been romantically involved with various partners over the years. He was reportedly high school sweethearts with Michele Overman at Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, New York in the 1960s and also reportedly dated groupie Deborah Benson and socialite Lynn Collins that same decade.

Before he married Cyrinda, he had a reported encounter with Boston, MA radio personality Maxanne Sartori. He also briefly dated fashion model Bebe Buell and they welcomed his first child, daughter Liv Tyler in 1977. At the time of Liv’s birth, Bebe claimed singer Todd Rundgren was the father to protect her baby from Steven’s drug addiction, but the truth eventually came out in 1991, when Liv changed her last name from Rundgren to Tyler.

In 1975, Steven became the guardian of 16-year-old groupie, Julia Holcomb, the same woman who accused him of sexual assault around that time in 2023. He reportedly persuaded her parents to become her guardian and they ended up dating and living together in Boston from 1975 until 1978. During this time, it’s also been rumored that Steven dated costume designer and actress Brenda Cooper. He went on to have an encounter with Carol Miller in the late 1970s, according to her memoir Up All Night: My Life and Times in Rock Radio.

It was rumored Steven had an affair with singer and dancer Jo Jo Laine in the 1980s, and from 2002 until 2005, years after both of Steven’s marriages, he was romantically linked to other various women, including model Justina Crosslin, singer Carly Simon, Russian model Olga Gomonova, and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger‘s daughter, Elizabeth Jagger. He ended up having a long-term relationship with Erin Brady. It started in 2006 and they became engaged in Dec. 2011, but ended up splitting in Jan. 2013.  Shortly after the split, he was romantically linked to Leven Rambin after they were spotted kissing each other at a 2013 Oscars after party, but she later reportedly debunked the rumors by explaining they were just greeting each other as friends.
