KISS: Gene Simmons' Home Searched for Child Porn While LAPD & Media Jump to Dispel Rumors of Family Involvement

EDITORIAL: Media’s saying everywhere that Gene was touring at the time of access so he has a solid alibi. Then they ALL state the family is not considered suspects but give absolutely no details of any alibis or why they’re not, which means they don’t want to talk about it. If it’s positive they hypershare. If negative, they deflect, appear vague and then bury the story

LAPD clears people before even looking at the evidence. They just served the search warrant and confiscated their computer equipment and other evidence. They have no idea what they might find once they dig through. I have no idea who’s guilty or not but it’s obvious that both mainstream media and the LAPD jumped fast here to dispel any rumors of any possible involvement by someone in the Simmons family.

Let’s just hope they’re not just protecting more celebrity sexual predators.

Police Search Gene Simmons' Home for Child Porn

An LAPD task force focusing on internet crimes against children reportedly executed a search warrant on KISS tongue guy Gene Simmons’ home last night. Neither Simmons nor his family members are currently suspects in the investigation and all were said to be “very cooperative.”

The task force is apparently looking into some event that occurred while Simmons was on tour last year, though details are still vague—he and his family were reportedly advised not to disclose the particulars of the warrant to the press. Via CNN:

The rocker’s publicist said the police visit was connected with a crime that may have occurred on the property last year while Simmons was away touring with his band.

Authorities requested Simmons and his family not to discuss the case to avoid undermining the investigation, publicist Cheyanne Baker said in a statement.

Even so, Simmons wife, Shannon Tweed, later tweeted “We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes,” and advised her followers, “don’t forget to change your passwords!”

TMZ is reporting “someone downloaded child porn either on one of their computers or using their Internet access,” and computers “and other evidence” were seized.
