Wow....

Claims it happened in Feb. 1989, so roughly... 34 years, 9 months ago... and she's coming forward now... #bitchpleez

Here is another next level bombshell on the rock world re: these "30-40" year later allegations.

This is the Rolling Stone article. Skip the click, as the kids say! Nothing here sounds that far fetched to me. I believe her.

_______________________________


A FORMER MODEL has accused Axl Rose of sexually assaulting her in New York over 30 years ago, according to a lawsuit filed in New York Supreme Court on Wednesday and obtained by Rolling Stone.

Sheila Kennedy, a former Penthouse model and Pet of the Year in 1983, claimed in the suit that she met the Guns N’ Roses frontman at a nightclub in New York in 1989 at around age 26. The night they met, Kennedy alleged, he violently sexually assaulted her in his hotel room.

Kennedy claimed in the suit that a friend invited Kennedy to a nightclub to try and meet the band. Kennedy spoke with Rose at the club, and he eventually invited her to come back to his hotel with her for a party, she alleged.

Kennedy’s friend wasn’t invited because Rose allegedly said she was “not hot enough,” per the suit, and Kennedy apologized to the friend and went back to Rose’s hotel with him alongside another model and future MTV host Ricki Rachtman. (Rachtman did not immediately reply to a request for comment.)

At Rose’s hotel room, according to the suit, Rose plied the guests with cocaine, champagne and other alcohol. After Kennedy went to the bathroom, Rose was allegedly waiting outside the door, and when she exited, Rose “pushed Kennedy against the wall and kissed her.”

“Kennedy found Rose attractive and did not mind this encounter. She was open to sleeping with him if things progressed,” the suit said. However, she says she did not consent to the alleged sexual encounter with Rose that would happen later that evening. (A rep for Rose did not immediately reply to a request for comment.)

Later into the party, when just Rose, Rachtman, the other model and Kennedy were in the room, Rose began to have sex with the other model, the suit alleged. Kennedy claimed she became uncomfortable, alleging that “Rose was aggressive in a way that appeared painful for the model.” Kennedy further claimed that Rose “was encouraging group sex,” but that she wasn’t interested and left the room with Rachtman to go back to Rachtman’s hotel room..

After leaving Rose’s room, she heard the sound of glass shattering. “She also heard Rose screaming at the model, allegedly saying: “You’re a fucking whore. Get the fuck out of here.” Upon hearing the noise, Rachtman allegedly told Kennedy that “it’s going to get bad.”

Kennedy claims that Rose then came down the hallway to Rachtman’s room, saw Kennedy and asked “what the FUCK are you doing back here?” Rose then allegedly pushed Kennedy down to the floor. “While Kennedy was on the ground, Rose grabbed her by the hair and dragged her across the suite back to his bedroom,” the suit said, adding that her knees were bleeding after they scraped the rug. When they got to his room, the suit alleged, Rose threw her on the bed onto her stomach, grabbed pantyhose and tied her hands behind her back.

“At that point, Kennedy, with her hands tied behind her back, was locked in the bedroom, bleeding, and vulnerable with Rose alone while he was in a sexual, volatile rage,” the suit alleged. “Kennedy had just witnessed Rose violently have sex with another woman. He dragged Kennedy to his bedroom like a caveman and acted with uncontrolled fury. Rose had physically stopped her from leaving and locked her in. Kennedy was trapped.” Rose then forcibly penetrated Kennedy’s anus with his penis, the suit alleged.

“He treated her like property used solely for his sexual pleasure,” the suit said. “He did not use a condom. Kennedy did not consent and felt overpowered. She felt she had no escape or exit and was compelled to acquiesce. She believed Rose would physically attack her, or worse, if she said no or attempted to push him away. She understood that the safest thing to do was to lie in bed and wait for Rose to finish assaulting her.”

The suit claims that Kennedy experienced PTSD-like symptoms after the alleged incident when she hears Rose’s name or Guns N’ Roses’ music. She further claims that she’s suffered from anxiety and depression since the alleged assault and that the trauma compromised her career. The suit listed assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and gender-motivated violence as its causes of action, asking for unspecified damages to be determined by the court.

Rose himself has been accused of domestic and sexual abuse multiple times in the past. The suit itself describes a “history of abuse” when describing Rose, referencing several other allegations of sexual and domestic violence from past decades. The suit referenced abuse claims from Rose’s former partners Erin Everly and Stephanie Seymour detailed in a 1994 People magazine story. (Everly sued Rose for abuse in Los Angeles civil court that year, later settling the claims out of court.)

The lawsuit isn’t the first time Kennedy shared these details about her alleged experience with Rose, writing about the allegations in her 2016 autobiography No One’s Pet and further recalling the claims in the 2021 documentary on sexual misconduct in the music industry Look Away.

The suit was brought through New York’s Adult Survivors Act, a law that has waived the statute of limitations on sexual misconduct claims for civil suits. The statute will close once again at midnight today. Since the window reopened, women have come forward with allegations against several high profile music industry figures including Steven Tyler, L.A. Reid, former Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow, publishing executive Kenny MacPherson and deceased Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

The best part of the RS story is that Waxl apparently cucked Ratchman right in front of his face

I’m surprised Axl didn’t get the #MeToo treatment already long ago. Hell, the whole hair metal genre thrived on misogyny and rape. So whom can we expect to be next among the accused? Slash? Bert? Pearcy? Vince? Nikki? I mean, none of these dudes were anywhere near being good schoolboy saints around the female populace, were they?

It's only a matter of time, before similar suits are filed against members of other prominent 80's and 90's acts.

I think the quick settlement from Puff Daddy (who I feel is guilty AF) will not help either.

There will be copy-cat suits against him too... and others.

Just like with Cosby, Weinstein, Epstien, there will be more to follow...

2 things about the Axl thing stand out...

1. He has barely been seen, or heard from in public, over most of the last 25+ years, other than live shows... he don't go out or is rarely seen. He also rarely even does press or interviews... he learned a long time ago... like Elvis and Whacko, to stay out of the public's eye as much as possible.

However...

2. He had a history 30 years ago with Erin Everly and Stephanie Seymour... right? If memory serves me, both of those girls accused him of being violent or abusive towards them... and this silly broad's claims, fit right into that window!

Oh well... he has money... the lawyers are already deep into this!

Statement from Axl:


Alan S. Gutman, the attorney for Axl Rose, shared a statement later on Wednesday to CNN, saying, “Simply put, this incident never happened.”

“Notably, these fictional claims were filed the day before the New York State filing deadline expires. Though he doesn’t deny the possibility of a fan photo taken in passing, Mr. Rose has no recollection of ever meeting or speaking to the Plaintiff, and has never heard about these fictional allegations prior to today,” the statement continued. “Mr. Rose is confident this case will be resolved in his favor.”

The “no recollection” response. That’s not exactly a denial.

I didn’t fuck her anally is not the same as I have no recollection of fucking her anally. You would remember. Probably had dingleberries in his ginger bush.

He’s not saying it didn’t happen, but you’ll have a hard time proving that it did. That way if evidence starts to surface of them both being there, that night, a flat out denial looks worse.

This happens on true crime all the time. The suspect adamantly denies ever being in the victims house. Then he’s confronted with his fingerprints in the house, he lied.

But if he says I don’t recall being in the house, and they find his fingerprints, he didn’t exactly lie about it, he just claims to have not remembered. That doesn’t look as bad.

The girl did an interview about this in 2021 and said this encounter was completely consensual and Axl was very gentle. 56:09 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpIV9VrP6DY&t=1215s

"he gently pulls my hands behind my back and he ties me up and like then we start like having sex. It was consented. I allowed it to happen and it was okay and he was fine. i didn't consider it rape. it was consensual. that's why i didn't go to the police."

If Axl is guilty of anything it's assault so if she was gonna go after him for that it would make more sense. She certainly wasn't sexually assaulted.
