Gene Simmons is being sued for sexual assault


A TV and radio broadcaster filed a lawsuit against Kiss bassist Gene Simmons.

Simmons, 68, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman whose name appears as ‘Jane Doe’ in court documents.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, details how Simmons allegedly made repeated sexual innuendos during an on camera interview, inappropriately forcing the woman to touch his knee and, ultimately, touching the woman’s buttocks as she posed for a photograph.

The interview took place on November 1st as Simmons promoted his new Rock & Brews restaurant.

The woman claims the bassist “forcefully placed it on his knee” before he “forcibly flicked/struck” her in the throat and repeatedly made “unwanted, unwarranted sexual advances.”
