Axl Rose Vs Artist
Here's what happened, Laura London -- an L.A. based photographer -- has an exhibit Downtown called "Once upon a time ... Axl Rose was my neighbor."
Laura claims her main piece -- a photograph of a garage door with "Sweet Child O'Die you R 1 of many nothing special " spray-painted on it -- is a picture of Axl's garage from years ago.
According to the cease and desist letter, Laura advertised the piece claiming Axl himself spray-painted the garage during a fight with his then wife, Erin Everly.
But the Guns N' Roses frontman claims that statement and the photograph are "outrageous, false, fabricated and highly defamatory."
The letter, drafted by Axl's attorney, states ... "Mr. Rose never spray-painted anything. Your salacious and inflammatory statements are plainly designed to garner attention and line your pockets with money." more on this story
