'Axl Rose' is not his original birth name. He legally changed it back in the mid 80s. Rearrange the letters. They spell 'oral sex'. He is a well known porn addict and loves S & M. His liaisons and stories from his past GFs are well-known and ugly.

I wouldn't put it past him to do something like this.

Correct

But if she wasn't planning on consenting, why go to his room in the 1st place?

Asking for trouble if you ask me.

My guess is she knew what she was doing and consenting and now wants to cash out.

Rock stars behaving badly, as in SEX, drugs and you name it. Who'd da thunk it? The old girl should have put her claim in when she was still young enough to enjoy the money she hopes for.

I do not think I could remember or provide any alibi for what I was doing 24 years ago. This seems more like a witch hunt than a court of law.

she "believed Rose would physically attack her, or worse, if she said no or attempted to push him away".

Why did she believe that?

Seems like she might have thought herself into a problem that might not have eventuated…

Hmmm.....I guess if you've ever taken an opportunity to sleep with someone famous in your youth; you may as well try and get a payday from it.

This cynicism comes purely from the timing of the claim.

She knew what he wanted when going to his hotel room, no one is that naïve

puffy knows it’s a money grab, he just paid and moved on.

No. This is something you imagine to be true. But you don’t know.

If there had been a court case we would know a lot more.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

yeah orange did that and what happened to him despite no actual proof or any kind that it ever happened? Liable.

No actual proof of any kind?

This is why you would not be a credible witness.

They just got Jamie Foxx too.

Who are they? Is it liberals? I bet it’s liberals.

As expected the alleged victim is getting the blame.

Here’s the key point, and it’s an important one so pay attention. She went to his hotel room, ok but being naive or stupid is not a crime. Rape is.

My position is and always has been take all serious crime allegations seriously. Regardless of gender, colour or political affiliation.

Why can’t you do that?

How can you prove right or wrong over something that happened 30 years ago???

That’s for a court to decide.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Sadly its become dangerous to interact with females in the west, hell a simple accusation is enough to ruin a mans life, proof, simply not needed, and even if you are cleared the man still loses MASSIVELY, there are plenty of examples of false accusations where the one lying gets off scott free.

As for this buzzer beater case.......looks like a $$$$ grab, as pointed out above by another poster she ADMITS that Axel would have to have been a mind reader, NO ONE can do that!!

Money grab!

Welcome to the Jungle! Too much dancing with Mr. Brownstone.

If I were accused of any kind of sexual crime and knew I were innocent I would fight it with every ounce of my being.

you would fight it, sure! until you ran out of money and then would just be broke and found liable anyway.

puffy knows it’s a money grab, he just paid and moved on.

Looks like a money grab

1 ( +5 / -4 )

how can he possibly prove it was consensual if it happened 34 years ago.

He shouldn't have to. She should have to prove it wasn't consensual.

This isn't a case of the expiration date driving the "victim" to make a claim because "time was running out." It's just someone who changed their mind about something they were okay with 34 years ago, seeking to take advantage of the situation.

Ridicules

Over 30 years ago??

you saw Puff Daddy just paid the next day, didn’t you? 

Why pay if he was innocent?

Your automatically assumed guilty if you are a male, its a tough battle to win

Cuba Gooding Jr, an ex NFL player. A NY State Senator. These things being shot out at insanity speed right before buzzer.

but then of course there is always yet another way:

they take solace in the fact that victims still have until 2025 to file sexual abuse claims under a little-known city law called the Gender Motivated Violence Act.

You do know they just got Bill Cosby again at the final buzzer of this expiring law?

I known it’s tough to see your heroes tarnished as sexual predators. I loved cosby.

There are more accusations against cosby this week. Do you also think those should not be investigated?

This ridiculous blue state law has spawned over 2500 lawsuits in one year.

Look at all the havok, just to “get” one guy,

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Or just report it when it happened. If it did.

1989 Axl was still kinda broke compared to now, you saw Puff Daddy just paid the next day, didn’t you? Extortion.

Speculation. Nothing more.

You should have sympathy for rape victims.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Bob,

Nothing has been proven, yet.

I know. Which is why it should be investigated, not dismissed at nonsense.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

All you’d have to do is then live with the shame, anger and emotional impact of that for 34 years

If I slept with him 34 years ago, I'd be eligible.

No. If you’d been anally raped by him you’d be ‘eligible’.

All you’d have to do is then live with the shame, anger and emotional impact of that for 34 years before publicly announcing you were anally raped and have a final chance to see justice.

It’s so easy /s.

Never liked the guy and I’m so shocked at how old he got, good lord, time wasn’t good to this guy.

Not a surprise..

Never a surprise..

This is an easy multi-million dollar settlement.

Why don’t you try it then? It’s so easy.
