AXL ROSE Says Woman Who Stole His Jewels Was ‘Just An Excited Fan’

GUNS N’ ROSES lead singer Axl Rose got his jewelry back after the woman who stole them returned the items to a police station in central Paris, France.

Rose was robbed of three gold-and-diamond necklaces worth $200,000 after the band performed in Paris on Tuesday night (June 5).

The robbery took place during a private party for the group in an area guarded by Rose‘s personal security team, where only members of the singer’s entourage and invited guests were allowed. Rose was not wearing the three gold and diamond necklaces at the time of their disappearance and was said to be “furious” about the incident.

The next day (Wednesday, June 6), a young woman was taken into police custody after admitting that she took the necklaces.

The woman, a model whose identity was not revealed, told police that she had too much to drink and inadvertently put Rose’s necklaces in her handbag, realizing her mistake only after waking up at lunchtime.

Writing on his Twitter account, Rose said, “Got my things back (really just an excited fan.) Thank you to the person for returning them n’ big thanks 2 the Paris police.”

According to The Pulse Of Radio, GUNS N’ ROSES‘ current European tour has been marked by trouble, including fans at shows in England either walking out or throwing objects at the group in protest of their late start times. One fan also claimed he was banned from entering a GUNS concert until he removed a T-shirt bearing the image of ex-guitarist Slash.

The band is next scheduled to play in Germany on Friday (June 8).
