Woman Taken Into Custody in France for Theft of Axl Rose’s Jewelry
The mystery of Axl Rose's $200,000 in stolen jewelry may have been solved. As previously reported, three gold and diamond necklaces disappeared during a private party after a June 5 Guns N’ Roses concert in Paris. Rose was described as being furious about the theft, which is understandable when someone swipes 200 grand worth of your stuff.
According to RTL.fr, a woman told police she had too much to drink and inadvertently put the necklaces belonging to Rose in her purse. There were about 130 people present at the gathering at Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy. She says she noticed the jewelry when she woke up and returned it to a central Paris police station.
The 24-year-old model, whose name has not yet been released, was taken into custody. No word yet on whether any formal charges will be filed.
Guns N' Roses are in the middle of a European tour that has already seen a series of strange occurrences, including Rose falling down onstage, the band getting pelted with objects and a fan reportedly being asked to remove his Slash T-shirt at the door of one show, among other incidents.
