Sacré bleu! Apparently someone had an appetite for Axl Rose's jewels!

Per British reports, French police are probing the theft of $200,000 worth of trinkets that was taken from the Guns N' Roses frontman at an afterparty following the legendary band's gig at Paris' Bercy Stadium.

"Paradise City" this was not.

A police source told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror that three gold-and-diamond necklaces were lifted from the 50-year-old Rose while he wasn't wearing them.

No word how the culprit got his hands on them. But the oft-volatile singer was reportedly "fuming" after learning his stash had been taken.

A rep for Guns N' Roses was unavailable for comment.

Rose and his hired Gunners are in the midst of a European trek and are slated to play Möenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday night.

But as often happens with Guns N' Roses, the tour hasn't been without controversy—from GNR's decision to ban fans from entering venues wearing T-shirts of ex-guitarist Slash to Axl threatening to walk off the stage at a recent London gig after audience members threw money and plastic cups at the band when they started 50 minutes late.

And then, of course, there's the letter Rose sent the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame basically thumbing his nose at organizers when he declined to attend the group's induction in April.
