Gene Simmons Settles Sexual Battery Lawsuit With Female Journalist

Back in December 2017 a woman, who was said to be a “longtime on-air personality for a local rock station,” filed suit against Gene Simmons (KISS), due to sexual battery, gender violence, battery, gender discrimination, etc. Now, Billboard are reporting that Simmons and the plaintiff told Los Angeles County Supreme Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy that they had reached a settlement. The terms of the agreement have not been made available and both sides still need to file an official request for dismissal. This news comes after Simmons previously said it was dismissed back in April.

Gene Simmons Says The Sexual Battery Lawsuit Against Him Has Already Been Dismissed

Back in December a woman, who was said to be a “longtime on-air personality for a local rock station,” filed suit against Gene Simmons (KISS), due to sexual battery, gender violence, battery, gender discrimination, etc. Now, Simmons claims that lawsuit has since been dismissed. He told Australia’s News Corp the following about that: “It’s already dismissed with prejudice. We’re going after that person. When I was growing up and somebody said something bad about you, you would be able to sue back for slander.” He also added: “There’s presumption of innocence, and I don’t go into the night softly. I’ve had a long 45-year career. Anybody wants to start something, you picked the wrong guy.”

KISS’ Gene Simmons Hired To Promote Canadian Cannabis Company

Invictus Md Strategies Corp. has apparently recruited KISS’ Gene Simmons as their chief evangelist officer. He will essentially be helping the company with public awareness and branding strategies for recreational marijuana, which is anticipated to be legal in Canada this year. His role will include providing marketing counsel, serving as a media spokesperson, making public appearances, participating in annual meetings, etc.

Dan Kriznic, chairman and CEO of Invictus, commented:

“Gene Simmons is a branding and merchandising genius, who not only created one of the most iconic bands of all time, but has spent decades building successful brands internationally in various industries. Gene will lead marketing initiatives that will help spread the positive messages that dwell at the heart of Invictus in accordance with the strict regulations of Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), the Food and Drugs Act (FDA) and the Narcotic Control Regulations (NCR).”

Simmons added:

“Values and family are very important to me, and when I first connected with Dan at Invictus, I understood immediately that we enjoyed a shared passion for these key life foundations. Instead of launching straight into business, we talked about the things that matter the most.”

Gene Simmons (KISS) To Release New Book “27: The Legend And Mythology Of The 27 Club” In August

KISS’ Gene Simmons will release his new book “27: The Legend And Mythology Of The 27 Club” on August 14, via Power House Books. You can pre-order that HERE.

Here’s an official description:

“Beginning in the summer of 1969, a slew of major rock stars all died in quick succession: Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison, all hugely influential musicians of their time, passed away, under tragic circumstances, and at exactly 27 years old.

This is how the rumour of the “27 club”—the idea that there is something fateful, myth-worthy, or even cursed about turning 27—began. Since then, the morbid pantheon has continued to grow, now including art prodigy Basquiat (d. 1988), legendary Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain (d. 1994), and nu-Blues heroine, Amy Winehouse (d. 2011), among other unforgettable figures. Becoming a member is a perverse privilege, but the cost of entry is dangerously high.

In 27, rock legend Gene Simmons of KISS fame, a man with over 10 million album sales and many-a-story to his name, will serve as our guide to the enigmatic 27 club, examining sex, drugs, and rock’ n’ roll from the inside, and answering our enduring questions… Why do we find ourselves obsessed with the untimely deaths of the famous and the infamous? Is the 27 club just a compelling urban legend? What does age 27 really mean for our most beautiful and damned?”
