AXL ROSE SUES BEVERLY HILLS CAR DEALER:
January 13, 2006
LOS ANGELES – It’s not Gun N’ Roses but cars and cash that have rocker Axl Rose suing a Beverly Hills auto dealership.
The suit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claims the dealership failed to deliver two luxury cars after receiving $20,000 in deposits and also failed to give the Guns N’ Roses frontman any money after selling his Ferrari.
Rose contends that Beverly Hills Classic Cars took his deposits but violated oral agreements to get him a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo and a 2005 Porsche GT3.
The suit also contends the dealer sold his consigned 1999 Ferrari Marinello but never paid him a promised $135,000 of the proceeds.
After-hours calls to the dealer and its owner were not immediately returned Thursday night.
