LOS ANGELES : Ex-Wife Sues Axl Rose, Alleging Years of Abuse
Axl Rose’s ex-wife sued the lead singer of the rock group Guns N’ Roses in Los Angeles on Monday for assault and battery, sexual battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Erin Everly’s Superior Court suit charges that Rose repeatedly beat Everly throughout their four-year relationship by punching, slapping, shoving and kicking her. The suit also says that Rose spit on Everly, hit her with “foreign objects” and dragged her by the hair.
Everly is seeking payment for injuries, pain and suffering and unspecified punitive damages. Rene Tatro, Everly’s attorney, said she is considering asking the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office to examine the complaint for possible criminal charges.
A spokeswoman for Rose said she could not comment because she had not seen the lawsuit.
