Gene Simmons Accused Of Sexual Harassment, Claims It’s Not Sexual Harassment If He’s Dressed Up

    Gene Simmons isn’t exactly known for his respectful treatment of the fairer sex, so it’s not necessarily surprising that a makeup artist for Sportscenter, on which Simmons appeared earlier this year, is suing the KISS bassist for $185,000 claiming he “grinded” on her, causing her humiliation, shame, anger, anxiety, and depression.” That seems a bit much for one instance of old-man grinding, but Simmons isn’t even denying it happened: He’s claiming that he can do that stuff when he’s dressed up in his demon character, which is something I assume all rational adults claim. The case will likely have to go to court, however, because Simmons is refusing an out-of-court settlement at this point. [Classic Rock]
