Gene Simmons accused of sexual assault

Gene Simmons has been accused of sexual assault and sexual battery. Make-up artist Victoria Jackson has filed a lawsuit against the KISS singer, alleging he approached her when she was working at Los Angeles’ ESPN Sports Center last November and said in “a lecherous and inappropriate manner, ‘I like you.’ ” According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Victoria was “surprised by the overtly sexual attention.” She accuses the 60-year-old rocker of grabbing and hugging her, to which she responded: “Ouch. You are hurting me.” She then tried to back out of his way because “his spiked chest was jabbing her in the face.” Gene refused to let go of the make-up artist. Instead “he pulled her even closer, tightly, pinning her arms and said, ‘No not yet.’ ” He is then accused of “humping her to the extent she could feel his groin grinding into her.” Gene then allegedly said: “Aw, That’s better! Now you can go.” According to, Victoria – who described the rocker’s behaviour as “vile and inexcusable” – is seeking over $500,000 in damages. She claims she has suffered humiliation, shame, embarrassment, anger, anxiety, loss of sleep and depression. However, Simmons has filed a counter suit against Victoria claiming no assault occurred and that she’s only looking for money.

    $500,000 wouldnt be ENOUGH money to satisfy me if i had been “sexually assaulted” so i really think she is just in it for the money.

    A pathetic attempt at 15 minutes of fame…talk about over reacting…so obviously a money grab…

    She’s after the money. Gene Simmons can have sex with a million groupies if he wants to. If the description is to be believed, it sounds like she wants $500,000 for an unwanted hug!

    Hard to say, he hasn’t really said much about it yet.
