New Development: Axl Rose Denies Sexual Assault Claim In Lawsuit


Axl Rose, the iconic rockstar and frontman of Guns N’ Roses, is vehemently denying a recent claim of sexual assault that has been filed against him in court. His attorney, Alan Gutman of Gutman Law, has stated that the allegation is completely untrue and that Rose has never even heard of the incident until now.

Key Takeaway

Axl Rose emphatically denies the sexual assault claim against him, stating that the alleged incident never happened and that he had never heard of the allegations until now. His attorney suggests that the timing of the lawsuit may be an attempt to take advantage of the statute of limitations.

According to Gutman, “Simply put, this incident never happened. Notably, these fictional claims were filed the day before the New York State filing deadline expires.” This suggests that the timing of the lawsuit may indicate a strategic move to take advantage of the statute of limitations pertaining to sexual abuse cases in New York.

While Rose does not deny the possibility of having taken a fan photo in passing, he claims to have no recollection of ever meeting or speaking with the plaintiff, Sheila Kennedy. Furthermore, Rose’s attorney asserts that he has never heard of these allegations prior to the filing of the lawsuit.

It is important to note that Kennedy alleges that the incident took place in 1989 during a party where she was allegedly tied up and sexually penetrated without her consent. However, Rose firmly denies these claims and dismisses them as fabrications.

In light of these allegations, Axl Rose remains confident that the case will be resolved in his favor. This declaration showcases his determination to prove his innocence and clear his name from these damaging accusations.
