EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Gene Simmons Lawsuit Dismissed
Simmons had filed his suit, in which he was asking for $185,000, as a preemptive strike against Jackson, before she filed suit against him.
Jackson’s lawsuit against Simmons, for sexual assault, is still active.
Jackson alleges that that she was sexually assaulted by Simmons when he appeared on ESPN’s Sports Center last May.
Jackson stated at a deposition that Simmons ground his groin into her and she feels “like I was raped with my clothes on.” Jackson went on to say in that deposition:”Emotionally, an overwhelming sense of sadness, nervousness, anxiety, a lot of shame and – just I feel like – I feel like I was raped with my clothes on.”
Simmons claims it would have been impossible for him to sexually assault Jackson as he was in his full KISS costume, which he described as “the equivalent of a suit of armor.”
