Axl Rose vs. Tommy Hilfiger

In 2006, after Guns N Roses played a set for Rosario Dawson's birthday, the rocker went mano a mano with American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. But this time he was a gentleman. Hilfiger clocked Rose after he claimed that the rocker pushed him out of the way, saying it was in self-defense because of all of Rose's intimidating rings.

"He wears all this jewelry. [I'm thinking], if I get hit, it's over. No teeth, no eye. So I hit him before he hit me. It was self-protection. Now we're friends," Hilfiger <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/11/tommy-hilfiger-i-hit-axl_n_494744.html">said</a>.
