Erin Everly was born on November 8, 1965, in Los Angeles. She is an actress known for her Sweet Child O’ Mine music video and Guns and Roses: Welcome To The Videos. She is from a famous family, the daughter of Don Everly of the Everly Brothers. She was more than just the band’s favorite subject featured in Guns N’ Roses music videos.

Currently, she has three children from her husband Jack Portman. But not much is known about Guns N’ Roses, sweetheart, because you know, roses have thorns that prick.

Axl Rose is a hard rock superstar and leading vocalist of Guns N’ Roses. He is known for his powerful voice and was named the greatest singer of all time by Rolling Stone. He wrote songs for Erin Everly that she loved and was proud of.

He was born in Lafayette, Indiana, and joined the rock band scene in Los Angeles. He co-founded Guns N’ Roses, the American band of metal music. The song ‘One in a Million’ was alleged of substance abuse, racism, and violence at concerts. This gives a pretty clear picture of the history of the now broken-up band.

Axl Rose met Erin Everly in 1986 in Los Angeles at a party aged just 19. After dating for a while, they moved to New York from Los Angeles to continue their relationship. In a few weeks, they decided to divorce. Let’s see the story of Axl Rose and Erin Everly.

Story of Axl Rose and Erin Everly

Rose’s ‘Sweet Child’ Everly and their relationship soon took the form of an alleged lawsuit. He had been accused of punching her, slapping her, kicking, gagging, and dragging her by the hair.

She passed out and ended up in a hospital with heroin and cocaine in her body, which gave her a cardiac arrest. Rose kept his distance from the Superior Court file.

They married in April 1990 and stopped living together in 1991. His ex-wife waited to sue her husband in fear for her life. He sued Stephanie Seymour, Rose’s ex-fiancé, for attacking him in a fight, and Stephanie said that he beat her up.

Some mentally disturbing details were revealed like Rose removing all doors to keep an eye on her. He had been accused of sexual assault and sexual battery in 1994. He thought that he was possessed by the spirit of Led Zeppelin’s late drummer and accused Erin of killing their children in the past life.

Disturbing Behavior Gone Public

She took good care of Axl Rose and had a good modeling job. Once, he was asked for an S&M shot for a music video with her. He used a ball gag, hung her on the door, and beat her in the footage.

In four months of the marriage, Erin Everly lost their baby in a miscarriage which worsened things between them. Ten months after the Las Vegas marriage, they divorced. Axl Rose said, ‘Erin and I treated each other like crap.’

In 1994, People Magazine published about their abusive relationship.   The band Great White used a video of Erin defending herself from his punches in their album. So, the silent abuse became largely public, and Erin Everly sued Axl Rose.

Stephanie Seymour and Axl Rose also sued each other. Stephanie Seymour was Axl Rose’s ex-fiance and accused Rose of beating her up.

In 2011, Erin Everly was in a concert of Guns N’ Roses in Atlanta.
