Gene Simmons Strikes Back

Gene Simmons sent a clear signal he won't kiss and make-up with the makeup artist at ESPN that is claiming in court documents that the KISS co-founder assaulted her.  The allegations involve an appearance Simmons made on SportsCenter on November 24.  Victoria Jackson maintains that Simmons assaulted her 'to the extent that she could feel [him]...grinding into her'.  Attorneys for Jackson are said to be seeking a $185,000 settlement for the 'humiliation, shame, embarrassment, anger, anxiety, loss of sleep and depression' the law firm says resulted from the alleged incident.  A counter suit filed by Simmons Friday (5/14) maintains Simmons has no idea who Jackson is and that the encounter described in her suit against him never took place.  Papers filed by Simmons claim that he and Eric Singer arrived at ESPN just minutes before their on-camera appearance and were in 'heavy costume' that would have made it impossible for him to do what Jackson described in her claim.
