Gene Simmons sued for assault
Gene Simmons of KISS is being sued for allegedly attacking a couple in a shopping mall in Los Angeles. The couple, Nathan Marlowe and Cynthia Manzo, allege that Simmons “responded negatively” after Marlowe began video taping him and asking him about monogamy. Marlowe claims that Gene Simmons took their camera, then choked and head butted him as well as shouted “I will kill you,” when they tried to retrieve it.
The couple are seeking over $25,000 in damages, and made civil claims of assault, battery, and infliction of emotional distress against Simmons. He was not arrested or charged in the alleged incident.
