KISS’ Gene Simmons Sued for Sexual Battery
KISS’ Gene Simmons is being sued for sexual battery by an employee of his Rock & Brews restaurant. According to court documents obtained by The Blast and Pitchfork, a woman claims Simmons groped her in 2016 while she was working as a dishwasher.
This isn’t the first sexual case Simmons has found himself in. Earlier this year, Gene reached a settlement with a broadcast journalist after she filed a sexual harassment suit against the KISS musician. Accusations of crude behavior at Fox News also led to a lifetime ban from the TV channel. Simmons issued an apology, but also claimed he did nothing to warrant such a ban.
The latest court filing against Simmons claims he “reached over and forcefully placed his hand on her vagina, completely covering it.” The anonymous woman also says she saw Simmons act “in a sexually charged manner with other women,” claiming she witnessed him touching their hair and telling them to unbutton their shirts.
The accuser is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit. Simmons has yet to comment on these allegations.
