Axl Rose sued over rented Bentley

Legal

Despite usually being such a timely chap, Axl Rose is being sued by car manufacturer Bentley’s financial services division over a car, a Flying Spur to be specific, that he leased in 2005 and then failed to return until 2006, several months after it was due back. Actually, I think they’re more annoyed about the fact that when he eventually returned it, it was smashed to pieces.

According to TMZ, the company is suing Rose for $73,976.42 in unpaid fees relating to the late return and damage to the $192,000 car. As well as a cracked windscreen, broken tail light, various dents and damaged tires, Bentley also reports that the singer returned a key for another car in place of the spare for the vehicle he rented, and that Rose had driven more than 42,000 miles over his agreed limit.

The lawsuit was filed at the LA Supreme Court earlier this week. Rose is yet to respond.
