Slash is suing his former business manager over an accounting error that apparently led to over-payments to his ex-wife totaling over $200,000. Management for the former Guns guitarist confirmed the suit but declined to comment.
Sources report that payments were made to his former wife Renee over the course of their on-again, off-again relationship from 1992 to 1996 that doubled the $5000 per month amount that had been agreed to.While some sources say Renee has refused to repay the money, others say that Slash has not asked her to do so. He instead intends to attempt recovery from the management company, Gudvi, Chapnick, Oppenheim and business manager Michael Oppenheim. Interested fans can see Slash's ex in a cameo appearance in Howard Stern's Private Parts walking backstage with the rock star in the movie's opening "Fartman" scene. In other Guns n' Roses-related news, the jail time being done by ex-drummer Steven Adler for assaulting two women just got harder.
(see "Former Guns N' Roses Drummer Jailed On Battery Charges"). After failing to return on schedule to his minimum security lock-up after a doctor's appointment, a judge in L.A. yesterday ordered Adler back into the general population at L.A.'s county jail.He was sentenced to 150 days in jail in September but didn't begin serving the time until late October.
