A suspected stalker has been arrested after being found in Guns N’ Roses singer AXL ROSE‘s MALIBU home.
Police in Los Angeles arrested 39-year-old Karen McNeil on Tuesday night (May 16), charged her with stalking the star, and held her on $150,000 bail, according to American news station NBC.
Deputy Boris Nikolof of LA Country Sheriff Department said: “Rose called the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff Station to report that a stalker was trying to enter his property.” He added that Deputies went to the area and arrested McNeil, who was subject to a restraining order involving Rose. There are uncomfirmed reports that McNeil was in Rose‘s bed when she was found by police.
Deputy Nikolof confirmed that McNeil was a suspect in several prior stalking cases involving the singer.
Meanwhile, speculation has been raging in the US this week that the original line-up of Guns N’ Roses are to reform. Sources in the States claim that guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, guitarist Izzy Stradlin and drummer Stephen Adler have been rehearsing in a secret location in Phoenix, Arizona.
The band’s management company have refuted the rumours and say a new record from G N’R, featuring Axl Rose, Paul Tobias (aka Paul Huge) on guitar and keyboard player Dizzy Reid, reportedly titled ‘Chinese Democracy’, will be released “very soon”.
