Axl Rose is in one expensive pickle!
According to TMZ, the rocker owes his former sound engineer Chris Pitman $165K for a year of unpaid work in 2011.

Per the legal docs, Chris agreed to work with a struggling Rose for FREE until he regained his financial bearings. The two allegedly came to an agreement for the Guns N' Roses frontman to pay the $125K bill in 2012, a deal which was cemented by a promissory note. A promissory note is essentially a legal document ensuring payment.
Well, 2012 is long gone and the ex-employee still hasn't seen a dime. Chris is now seeking the original sum plus interest, which is how he came up with the $165K figure.
Now that Mr. Rose is financially well off following his reunion tour, C.P. argues there's no reason for his former boss to dodge the issue. In fact, Axl has already made $100 million off the tour.
Here's to hoping these two work it out — court is never fun!
