Axl Rose settles Bentley hire lawsuit

Legal

Axl Rose

Axl Rose has settled a previously reported legal battle with a car rental firm, which sued him for $73,976 after he returned a Bentley he had hired from the company both late and damaged. Somehow Rose had managed to crack the windshield, damage two tyres, break a tail light and get dents all over the doors and bumper, though to be fair he had had the car for several months – several months more than he’d paid for, as it happens.

Anyway, according to TMZ the legal squabble has been resolved and Rose has agreed to pay Bentley Financial Services $53,000.
