Rose sues model for $100,000 in gifts

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The marriage is off, and Axl Rose wants his money back.

The lead singer of Guns N’ Roses and model Stephanie Seymour began dating in early 1991, got engaged on Feb. 4 and split up later that month. Now, Rose is seeking to recover $100,000 in gifts he says he lavished on her in anticipation of marriage.

Among items he listed in a lawsuit are wedding and engagement rings, a gold and diamond turquoise necklace and a diamond and sapphire antique watch. He is also seeking punitive damages.

Ms. Seymour was asked in an Aug. 13 letter to return the gifts but she refused last week, according to the complaint filed in Superior Court

Rose contends that Ms. Seymour punched, hit and kicked him at a party she threw at his home last Christmas. He said she attacked him “without warning or provocation” while he was sitting at the kitchen table.

Ms. Seymour’s attorney, Marc Goodman, was attending a meeting Tuesday and was unavailable for comment, his secretary said.

Axl doing battle with ex-girlfriend

Axl Rose wants the ruby and diamond ring back.

He wants the antique wedding band, some other gifts and, by the way, he wants to sue former mate Stephanie Seymour for assault and mental and emotional abuse.

So there. (Breaking up is so very, very hard to do.)

Rose says his threat to sue comes after Seymour sent missives that she’ll publish a picture of herself with a black eye if he doesn’t stop asking for the pricey trinkets.

So the rocker has hit the damage control button with his version of the Christmas 1992, incident:

He fended her off while she tried to strike him with furniture and her fists during a party she hosted at their home in Malibu.

He says he’s got plenty of witnesses who’ll testify she assaulted him.

Stephanie?
