The San Bernadino Sun reports that KISS frontman Gene Simmons is now being sued on charges of sexual battery, in the wake of an incident that allegedly took place last month. The unnamed plaintiff says she met Simmons during an interview promoting his restaurant chain, and that things began going wrong when the musician forcibly placed the woman’s hand on his knee and held it there. Later—bizarrely—he also “‘forcibly flicked/struck’ the woman in the middle of her throat,” engaged in unwanted sexual innuendo, and groped her during a photo op. You can read the full legal complaint against Simmons here.
