Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose To Pay Bentley $53,000 For Damaged Car
Axl Rose has agreed to fork out $53,000 in damages to Bentley Financial Services, who claim the Guns N' Roses singer severely damaged a $192K 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur he leased from the company back in 2005.
That's actually quite a deal for Rose, who was sued by Bentley back in October to the tune of almost $74,000. Bentley claimed Rose returned the luxury auto "with a cracked windshield, two damaged wheels, a broken taillight, a missing key, dents on the doors and damage to the bumper." He also managed to return the ride months after the lease expired and exceed the agreed upon lease mileage by 42,000 miles.
We're not quite sure where Rose was driving back then, but he's about to put some serious time on the road this fall when Guns N' Roses embark on a U.S. tour that kicks off Oct. 28 in Orlando, Fla., and currently is scheduled through a Nov. 19 gig in Hartford, Conn. Stops in a handful of additional cities are planned, with dates to be announced shortly.
