Guns N' Roses lead singer Axl Rose has been accused of treating a 2006 Bentley Flying Spur like one of his hotel rooms. In a lawsuit filed by Bentley Financial Services, the company claims Rose returned a leased vehicle after skirting payments, blowing past the mileage limits and seriously damaging the $192,000 vehicle. The suit, filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, says Rose leased the car in 2005, then failed to make $73,976.42 in payments. When he finally returned the car several months past the lease's expiration, it had: a cracked windshield, two damaged tires, broken glass on the rear tail light, two dented doors and a gouged bumper. To top it off, he was 42,397 miles over the lease's mileage limit and turned the vehicle in with a mismatched spare key and a broken remote key, valued at $91, which is chump change compared to the rest of what he owes (Body Shop Business).
