KISS founder and bassist Gene Simmons has been named in a lawsuit by a female reporter
alleging sexual battery and gender violence.

The reporter, who wishes to remain anonymous, claimed that the incident took place while she
was interviewing Simmons at the opening of the San Bernardino, Calif., Rock & Brews,
a rock-themed chain restaurant of which Simmons is a co-owner.

Simmons responded, "I intend to defend myself against any alleged charges you may have been
reading about in the media," Simmons said in a statement sent to Ultimate Classic Rock.
"For the record, I did not assault the person making these accusations in the manner alleged
in the complaint or harm her in any way. I am conferring with my lawyers with the aim of
vigorously countering these allegations. And, I look forward to my day in court where the
evidence will prove my innocence."
