By Eriq Gardner

Tylersteven Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has a message for his fans: Don't believe everything you read.

Tyler is suing the unknown people behind a couple of blogs that purport to be written by the famous singer and his girlfriend. According to the complaint filed in California Superior Court, Tyler says the blogs contain "fabricated thoughts and commentary." He alleges false statements and misappropriation of likeness.

The blogs appear to have already been taken down. This may be the second time that Tyler has dealt with these pranksters. Last year, according to the lawsuit, Tyler convinced Google to pull the plug on a blog when he discovered a similar impersonation.
