GUNS N' Roses singer Axl Rose has been robbed of $200,000 of jewellery in Paris.

The 'Paradise City' singer said thieves took three gold-and-diamond necklaces from an after party following the group's show at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.

A police source said Axl was ''fuming'' about the theft, and confirmed the rocker wasn't wearing his necklaces at the time they were stolen.

Judicial police have launched an investigation, and hope to quickly find the culprits.

Guns N' Roses have met with frequent troubles on their current European tour, with heavy criticism for taking to the stage late, in many cases later than after 11pm.

In London the band - of which Axl is the only original member - threatened to walk off stage if fans continued to throw money and plastic cups at them after they took to the stage 50 minutes late.

Bass player Tommy Stinson said: ''If you throw any f***ing thing on stage, we'll go home.''

Axl also recently turned down the opportunity to appear with the classic line up of the group - Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler - when they were inducted to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

He wrote in an open letter: ''Since the announcement of the nomination we've actively sought out a solution to what, with all things considered, appears to be a no win, at least for me, 'damned if I do, damned if I don't', scenario all the way around.''

Guns N' Roses next show is in Moenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday, before they will return to France as part of their European tour, which lasts until July 22.
