We're glad this case was settled just in time for the holidays!
According to TMZ, Axl Rose and his ex-roadie Chris Pitman have finally reached a settlement in their ongoing legal battle.
As we previously reported, Pitman sued Rose a few months ago after he failed to pay $163K worth of services in 2012. Per the roadie's allegations, the rocker promised to give Chris the dough for his services once he had more money.

Now that Guns N' Roses is doing REALLY well these days thanks to a reunion tour, it's safe to say Axl has more than enough cash to reimburse his old pal. In fact, the band's concerts rakes in about $4 million each.
As for the settlement, the official terms of the agreement remain undisclosed. Sources close to the situation say the amount is less than Pitman's proposed amount of 163K.

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!

No matter, though — when you break your foot, you earn a rock n' roll throne so you can keep performing — just like Dave Grohl!
The singer and band never missed a beat at T-Mobile Arena on Friday night, rocking the house and bringing it down just like always… you know, despite the fact that Axl couldn't walk!
The singer was sitting high and mighty in a pretty nifty throne of sorts (pictured above)!!!
