Axl Rose is being sued by Front Line Management, which claims the singer owes him nearly $2 million in unpaid commissions.

Front Line Management, founded by Irving Azoff, sued Rose in Los Angeles on Thursday (March 25) for nearly $1.9 million in unpaid fees. The company claims it had an oral agreement with Rose to receive 15% of the Guns N' Roses' frontman's commissions.

The lawsuit states the commissions are due on more than $12 million in earnings Rose made for performances abroad.

Attempts to reach Rose's current management were unsuccessful.

Azoff, executive chairman of Live Nation Entertainment Inc., has represented the Eagles and Joe Walsh.
