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