News

A former male model who appeared in the music video for Aerosmith’s 1994 hit song “Crazy” was arrested and charged with attempted rape earlier this week by meeting women through dating apps, according to a report.

Dean Kelly, 52, was arrested by police and charged with attempted third-degree rape and sexual assault charges stemming from an October incident, the New Orleans Police Department said Thursday.

Kelly rose to prominence with his cameo in the band’s music video, playing a young shirtless farmer working farmland with a tractor, starring actress Alicia Silverstone and frontman Steven Tyler’s daughter, Liv.

A woman claims in court documents obtained by WDSU that she met Kelly through a dating app and claims he used a fake name and didn’t look like his photos before assaulting her.

The former model-turned-predator is being held at the Orleans Parish Justice Center on $1.1 million bail and also faces charges of failure to register as a sex offender and failure to report a sex offender felony, jail records show.

The arrest is the latest in a string of legal troubles for Kelly, who has faced several other similar arrests over the past decade.

Kelly was sentenced to 10 years of probation and five years of probation for sexual assault and felony carnal knowledge of a minor in 2014, according to NOLA.com.

He was later sentenced to prison when a New Orleans judge ruled that Kelly violated the terms of his probation, including not using aliases on social media and must register any phones he used, the paper reported at the time.

Kelly is also accused of raping a 14-year-old and a 17-year-old girl in two separate incidents in 2005, according to NOLA.com.

He was charged with aggravated and felony rape of a minor, second-degree kidnapping and possession of child pornography, but took an Alford plea, where he pleaded not guilty but admitted there was evidence against him.

Two years after his incarceration in 2014, Kelly was accused of trying to hire his inmate to kill former New Orleans District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro along with the judge who worked on the case and his defense attorney, the current Orleans District Attorney. Jason Williams.

Kelly pleaded guilty to threatening a public servant and received a six-month suspended prison sentence and two years of probation.
