Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was robbed of over $200,000 (£130,000) worth of jewellery in Paris last night (June 5).

The singer was at a private gathering after his band's show at the French capital's Bercy Stadium when the theft occurred. According to the Press Association, three gold-and-diamond necklaces were taken and French police are now investigating.

According to a spokesman for the band, it did not appear that Rose was wearing the necklaces at the time. He also said that Axl was said to be "fuming" after the theft.

Guns N' Roses completed their troubled UK arena tour on Friday (June 1), ending their run of shows on a sour note after being pelted with money and pint glasses. As well as this, the band have drawn intense criticism for their frequent late starts, often taking to the stage after 11pm.

As previously reported by NME, fans who turned out for the gigs wearing clothes bearing the image of the band's former guitarist were turned away by security - and were only allowed in after removing the offending item of clothing.

The band are touring across Europe for the next two weeks and are scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday (June 8).
