Relationship With Axl Rose

Erin rose to prominence as the girlfriend and then wife of the rock music legend Axl Rose, the leader of pop group Guns ‘n’ Roses The couple initially met at a party held in Los Angeles in 1986, when he was 24 and she was 19 years old, and she followed by moving back from New York City to Los Angeles to continue her relationship with the musician. They went on to marry in April 1990, but having spent only nine months married, the couple divorced in January of the following year. Later on, it was revealed that one of the main causes of their divorce was a tragic miscarriage that Erin had had. However, in the following period, the singer himself spoke about how troubling their relationship was, saying “I cry every time I think of how horrible we treated each other. Erin and I treated each other like shit. Sometimes we treated each other great, because the children in us were best friends. But then there were other times when we ruined each other’s life completely”.


Erin subsequently filed a lawsuit against Axl, accusing him of domestic violence, but the multi-million lawsuit was eventually settled out of court. Following the annulment of their marriage, Erin was financially supported by her family and friends, and later in an interview she stated that she even had to sell her wedding ring in order to make ends meet. In early 2001, her former husband told the Rolling Stone that his song entitled “Oklahoma” was inspired by a court date with his ex-wife, adding that he was sitting in litigation with his then ex-wife, and even though it was the day of a bombing which killed 168 people, his wife “didn’t care” and her only goal was to obliterate him.
