    For a day, Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was $200,000 lighter...in jewelry, that is.

    The singer was robbed blind in Paris, France on Tuesday, June 5, with the bandit making off with $200,000 in jewelry. Three gold and diamond necklaces belonging were lifted from a lounge while he was at a private gathering after a show.

    Rose was reportedly "furious" over the theft and the authorities were on the case. A model returned the jewelry on Wednesday, June 6, and was then arrested.

    That's a lot of jewelry to have on him, but he is on tour, so it makes sense. Sucks that it was lifted, but cool that it was returned.
