Celebrities Banned by Top Hotels: Axl Rose

Axl Rose

The Incident: Perhaps the rocker was having a welcome-to-the-jungle kind of morning. In 2006, the Guns N Roses frontman was staying at Stockholm’s Berns Hotel and, one morning, reportedly got into an argument with a woman in the lobby. A hotel security guard stepped in, and the resulting scuffle culminated in Rose supposedly throwing a vase at an antique mirror, and biting the leg of the guard.

Still Unwelcome? Rose was arrested and taken to the police station for several hours. The incident was settled after Rose paid a fine of about $6,800, including $1,300 for the bitten guard.
