March 1994: The Erin Everly Accusations
Erin Everly — the subject of Axl Rose's greatest love song, "Sweet Child O' Mine" — testified that the pair's relationship and short-lived marriage was a living nightmare. She sued her ex-husband for assault and sexual battery, opening up with disturbing details like Rose removing all the doors in her apartment in order to keep an eye on her. She also alleged that he claimed to be possessed by the spirit of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, and believed that "in a past life we were Indians and that I killed our children, and that's why he was so mean to me in this life." The lawsuit was settled out of court.
