Make-up artist claims Gene Simmons “humped her”

Make-up artist Victoria Jackson claims she was sexually assaulted by Gene Simmons after he ground his groin against her at ESPN’s Los Angeles studios following his appearance on the network’s Sportscenter show. The 61-year-old bassist filed a lawsuit against Victoria, claiming his KISS outfit is the “equivalent of a suit of armor,” meaning he couldn’t have sexually assaulted her through it. Victoria responded by issuing her own lawsuit, seeking over $500,000 in damages. According to court documents obtained by, she told lawyers she felt: “Emotionally, an overwhelming sense of sadness, nervousness, anxiety, a lot of shame and — I feel like I was raped with my clothes on. I had a sense of somebody just taking something from me. A complete and utter violation, a disrespect for me and my body, myself as a human being.” Her lawsuit alleges the incident took place when Gene “approached her, said ‘I like you’ in a lecherous and inappropriate manner,” and then “humped Plaintiff to the extent that she could feel his groin grinding into her.” Gene has asked a judge to have Victoria examined by a psychologist, saying she has made her mental health a relevant issue by claiming damages for emotional distress. Victoria’s lawyers call it a “cynical tactic” and an “attempt to be as intrusive as possible in order to harass and intimidate her.” Another ESPN employee has reportedly supported her version of events, saying Gene “made a bee line straight for her and then started humping her.” A hearing on the motion to compel the mental health examination is set for tomorrow at Los Angeles Superior Court.

    I believe it, he probably cheats on that playboy bunny who’s the mother of his kids (who he lives with) all the time. That’s why he never bothered marrying her.
