Axl Rose Jewelry Thief Nabbed, Bling Recovered
Axl Rose is rocking his bling once more.
After three of the Guns N’ Roses’ frontman’s gold-and-diamond necklaces were stolen in Paris, police have apprehended the culprit, reports French newswire Agence France-Presse.
The thief, a model, returned the jewelry, worth $200,000, to Parisian police yesterday (June 6). The woman was arrested, despite claiming not knowing how she acquired the necklaces during an after-party for GNR’s Paris concert on Tuesday (June 5).
The jewelry was not in Rose’s possession when it was stolen, but rather, being guarded by his own personal security squad in a private lounge at the after-party of roughly 100 guests. The theft left Rose enraged – but he still has a long way to go on Guns N’ Roses’ tour of Europe, which runs through July 22.
