Axl Rose and Other Celebrities Get Robbed Blind

Yahoo Contributor Network

Axl Rose is upset. No, he's not feuding with his former Guns N Roses bandmates again: He's angry because he just got ripped off, big time! The Associated Press is reporting that Rose was robbed of over $200K worth of jewelry in Paris and is "fuming" over the loss.

Why would you have $200K in bling with you while traveling? That's just asking to get stolen. Regardless, the robbery tops off a crappy weekend for the singer. Current GNR bassist Tommy Stinson told the audience at London's O2 arena that they'd end the concert if people didn't stop throwing plastic and money at them.

"If you throw any f*****g thing on stage, we'll go home," Stinson whined. The band eventually finished the set and Rose told the crowd thanks "for putting up with us."

Egotistical lead singer or not, it still sucks to have all your stuff stolen. Just ask these other celebs.

Kim Kardashian

France wasn't so friendly to Kim Kardashian, either. The reality star had pieces of designer luggage, handbags and some vintage sunglasses stolen while she traveled back to the U.S. from the Cannes Film Festival in May.

"Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine! Some things are sentimental & not replaceable," she tweeted after the theft. "What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There's no sense of security & no trust!"

"Shame on you."

British Airways denied that the stuff was stolen while in her possession, though we'll sure they'll compensate her somehow to get the good publicity.

Rachel Bilson

Actress Rachel Bilson had her house robbed several times in 2009 while she vacationed in Canada. At the time, reports indicated that she had $130,000 and $300,000 dollars worth of jewels and clothes stolen. However, sources close to the actress added that jewelry and vintage outfits given to her by her grandmother were also pilfered.

The crime was later blamed on the so-called Bling Ring, a band of well-to-do Beverly Hills teens who robbed celeb houses for sport. Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge and Orlando Bloom were also among the victims.

Kate Moss

Talk about feeling vulnerable! Supermodel Kate Moss' London home was robbed of several pieces of artwork, including one made by the artist Banksy worth $115,000. The worst part? It all happened while she slept!
