    Hahaha, of course he did...that's what he does.

    A woman identified only as “Jane Doe” is suing Kiss band member Gene Simmons, alleging that he groped her and made unwarranted sexual advances during a video interview.

    According to the lawsuit, the interview occurred Nov. 1 at a Highland, Calif., restaurant that is part of a chain Simmons co-founded with Kiss bandmate Paul Stanley.

    The woman alleges that Simmons, 68, grabbed one of the woman’s hands and “forcefully placed it on his knee and held it on his knee,” until the woman could remove it, the paper reported.

    Simmons, the lawsuit states, continued his “unwanted, unwarranted sexual advances” by reaching for the woman’s hand again.

    The gesture was followed by suggestive remarks from Simmons, who later touched the woman’s buttocks, the lawsuit stated.

    The woman’s attorney, Willie W. Williams, would not reveal where his client worked. The lawsuit identifies her as a “long-time on-air personality for a local rock station.”

    “My client is embarrassed and humiliated by the incident with Mr. Simmons,” attorney Willie W. Williams told the Register. He said the woman wished to remain anonymous.

    “She filed suit because she wanted to make a strong statement that this behavior is unacceptable and she wants to see an end to this type of behavior,” Williams said.

    The lawsuit describes the woman as a “long-time on-air personality for a local rock station,”

    I wouldn't buy the story for $2. Women are such victims lately. Life... it sucks so bad, aye ladies? Yeah... it sucks to be a victimized gold digger, ain't it?
    Like I always say, "it takes two to tango". Most of these women knew what they were getting into. Seriously, you didn't know what you were getting into with Gene Simmons? They're all useless gold diggers. Sorry to sound cynical, but it's true. it's one thing when one woman claims victimization, but when they all start doing it and they want money? C'mon.

    It's to the point that each time I hear the word "groped", my thinking defaults to "p*ss off gold digger". These sex scandal allegations are complete asinine, and these wimmin folk are bogging down our court systems with illegitimate troubles they've been harboring for 20-some years. GTFO.

    At this point I think society should just say, "lookit, if you didn't want your ass kicked, then you shouldn't have played with the devil". Women are just as accountable as men. There is no distinction. Any woman who claims she didn't know what to expect from an encounter with Gene Simmons, above all, people should be subject to mental counseling.

    No sympathy here.

    I'm not sure I would call placing her hand on his knee "groping". I'm sure that a lot of women would find him offensive, but I doubt he's harmful.

    I mean, this is Gene Simmons we are talking about. It is no secret that he thinks he is god's gift to mankind, and brags about all the women he has slept with. This one I saw coming from a million miles away.

    We've been commenting about how the "rockers" were kind of immune to the latest round of outrage, but here we go. Off with a bang.

    Frankly I'm surprised it's taken so long.

    Gene is well known to be sexually aggressive with women, cornering them and leaning over them to "flirt" with him. I don't doubt for a second that he's groped a lady.

    You single "nobody" guys better watch yourselves out there too. This mentality could eventually trickle on down from the rich and famous to the local guy who makes just $30K, and gets sued by that girl you flirted with 3 years ago who's now got 2 kids and is on welfare. Indeed, it's already been that bad for decades - guy has a fling and then she gets pregnant and sues you for everything you've got. You can make $80K/yr. and suddenly find yourself living in a dumpy apartment and driving a 20+ yr old Ford Escort. And it can happen fast.

    Think about that next time all your macho friends are bragging about who they laid lately. They're all full of crap. They're either full of crap, or they're paying child support. That's how it works.

    Uh, maybe you should actually read the story before talking out your ass.

    She was interviewing him and it was her job to be within ten feet of him?

    And she hasn't been sitting on this for 20 years waiting to make a buck, it happened in November.

    There's a bunch of hungry lawyers out there.

    Some are ambulance chasers and some are celebrity chasers.

    Virtually all of them deserve the disdain directed at the profession by the general public.

    he put her hand on his knee!

    THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS!!!!

    I hope she can get counseling, no one should be objected to that kind of violent abuse.


    When I was little I had an Aunt that would pinch my cheeks around the Holidays. I'm still in counseling for it.

    Maybe she expected him to be on her show and he didn't do what she wanted. Could be anything that triggered it really.
