AceShowbiz - A sexual battery lawsuit filed against Gene Simmons has been dismissed, according to the KISS rocker. He insists the case has been "dismissed with prejudice," meaning it cannot be refiled.
Simmons tells Australia's News Corp, "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. 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."
A woman identified as Jane Doe filed a lawsuit against Simmons in Los Angeles Superior Court in December 2017, alleging he grabbed her hand multiple times and "forcefully placed it on his knee and held it on his knee" and "forcibly flicked/struck" her throat during an interview session at his Rock & Brews restaurant in Highland, California.
She also claimed Simmons touched her butt while they were posing for a promotional photo together.
