KISS’ Gene Simmons sued for sexual battery

KISS singer-bassist Gene Simmons has been sued by an unidentified woman for sexual battery. According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the woman claims that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician “forcefully placed his hand on her vagina.”

The alleged incident occurred at the opening of one of Simmons’ Rock & Brews restaurant back in 2016. The woman says in the suit that she was working as a dishwasher in the restaurant exactly two years ago, on 6th December 2016, when Simmons groped her.
She apparently did not know who Simmons was but was asked to take a photo with him. At that point she alleges he “reached over and forcefully placed his hand on her vagina, completely covering it.”

The woman also stated that she saw Simmons behave “in a sexually charged manner with other women,” during which he apparently touched their hair and told them to “unbutton their shirts.”

In December 2017, Simmons was sued for sexual battery. An unnamed radio personality claimed Simmons touched her inappropriately. That lawsuit was settled earlier this year.
