Steven Tyler

Family Members Furious

Over Singer's Engagement

12/28/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1227_steven_tyler_fiance_getty_exSteven Tyler's big engagement news did NOT go over so well with several members of his family ... who are telling friends they simply don't like his new fiancee ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the Tyler clan tell us ... several family members have clashed with Erin Brady for years ... and have told friends, "She's just not nice."

One source tells us, "She's just been mean to the family."

And to make matters worse -- we're told several family members have griped that they had no idea about Steven's proposal plan until AFTER he popped the question to 38-year-old Brady this weekend ... and they felt slighted by the omission.

Sources tell us ... the family members were hoping they could eventually repair the relationship with Erin, but now, they feel Steven has only widened the divide.

Multiple calls to Steven's rep have not been returned.

She'll take the old fart for every cent she can get and then go to a younger guy who can satisfy her.

Who cares? There both dirty skanks and no one else who's sober wants them. And, um, she's been 38 for 6 years now.

is this broad the reason he is "off the wagon" again?? maybe that is why the family doesn't like her-being 25 years younger than him it is just obvious she wants a rock star lifestyle and his money-and if he is sober it's just harder for her to manipulate him-why else would she be with him?? NO woman that much younger EVER is with an older man because they are "madly in love" get real-if it could happen then it would happen to old men with NO money-not just ones WITH money-they want something-and it is always all about them-men just get suckered by their ***** and these kind of gold digging 2 faced trash know how to play it-love has nothing to do with it-I would love to see Liv slap her silly

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO IS GOING TO STATE THE OBVIOUS? THE RING IS SO INSULTINGLY SMALL! OMG HE IS NOT THAT INTO HER OR HE WOULD HAVE BOUGHT HER A RING. don't get me wrong it'd be a perfect ring for a poor chick like me, except if it came from a freaking rock star. he didn't get her a real ring cuz he ain't planning on walking down the isle with her! his kids can chill.

If you saw or heard her on Howard Stern you would know how foul she is. Some men do not have what it takes to live up to what a good woman expects from them. They are more comfortable with a skank that makes them feel superior.
This woman doesn't even try to hide what she really is. So Steven Tyler can only blame himself in the end.

I'm not surprised. I've never heard anything nice about Erin. She's apparently jealous and possessive and was part of the reason Steven fought with his band mates and isn't as close to his family as he used to be.

Paul McCartney's family said the same thing about Heather Mills before they married and look how that turned out.

There's lots of men his age-rock star or not- that will sell themselves cheap to have a younger woman by their side. But, she does appear to look a bit like a bitch & if she's mean to the family then he's obviously not got enough sense to see through it. I've dealt with a gold digging sister in law for 30 years-all she's caused is family destruction. There are women & I guess men too, but there are women that are truly self adsorbed evil. sorry, Steven, you could do better.

Who cares what the heck he does. He doesn't care what people think anyway. He says he is sorry for all his divorces; heck it was only 2 why does he make it sound like it was 12?? Oh and why is his family saying anything now? It's been 5 years and they haven't said a thing. Let's get to more important issues.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Steven Tyler has become engaged. The death of both parents causes an individual to come face to face with their own mortality and feel alone (especially after both parents are gone. It doesn't matter how old you are... Mom and Dad are gone. It's natural to want to insure that you won't be alone in coming years. Question for him...how would his parents feels about this choice? His family is important. How do they feel? Family is very important...money, fame, security take a back seat. In regards to Erin...like anyone else, whether being considered for a job or a life partner, you haveto look at their history and reputation and make a sound decision based on that. We all make choices, sometimes based on wrong reasons...time is what we often give up...and time ticks on.

Um, why would he be obligated to tell his family before he proposes? Now, if they found out from TMZ instead of directly from family, that could be awkward, but whether he tells the family before or after he pops the question is really his business.
