Axl Rose Sued for Sexual Assault

A Shocking Lawsuit Emerges

In a disturbing turn of events, Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose finds himself at the center of a sexual assault lawsuit stemming from an incident in 1989. Former Penthouse model Sheila Kennedy filed the lawsuit in New York City on Wednesday (November 22nd), making grave accusations against the rock icon.

The Allegations Unveiled

Kennedy alleges that Rose sexually assaulted her in a New York hotel room after a night out at a club. According to the lawsuit, Rose invited Kennedy and former MTV host Riki Rachtman to his hotel room, where he provided them with alcohol and cocaine. The situation took a dark turn when Rose initiated aggressive sexual activity with another model in front of Kennedy, pressuring her to partake in group sex.

Feeling uncomfortable, Kennedy and Rachtman left the hotel room, enraging Rose. He reportedly confronted Kennedy in Rachtman’s room, physically assaulting her by pushing her to the ground and dragging her back to his room by her hair.

A Disturbing Account

Once in his hotel room, Rose allegedly threw Kennedy onto the bed, tied her hands behind her back, and subjected her to sexual assault in a volatile and aggressive manner. The lawsuit describes the incident as an act of “sexual, volatile rage.” Kennedy claims that the traumatic experience led to PTSD-like symptoms, severely impacting her personal and professional life.

The statement from Kennedy’s legal team describes Rose’s actions as treating her “like property used solely for his sexual pleasure.” The account suggests that she felt powerless to resist due to fear of physical harm if she refused or resisted.

Legal Ramifications

Kennedy initially made accusations against Rose in her 2016 biography, but this lawsuit represents a formal legal action. Rose has not yet responded to the allegations.

This lawsuit comes amid a wave of high-profile sexual assault cases, facilitated by New York’s Adult Survivors Act. The act temporarily lifts the statute of limitations on sexual misconduct claims, allowing victims to file civil suits. Notable figures, including Steven Tyler, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Marilyn Manson, and ex-Grammys CEO Neil Portnow, have faced similar accusations under this legislation.

As the legal proceedings unfold, the music industry is forced to confront disturbing allegations against one of its iconic figures.
