The #MeToo movement has caught up with Gene Simmons, and he is being accused of sexual battery.

The KISS frontman is being sued by a woman who claims he groped her at the opening of his Rock & Brews restaurant back in 2016.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the woman was working as a dishwasher at the restaurant at its opening on December 6, 2016. She allegedly did not know who he was but agreed to take a photograph with him in the restaurant's kitchen.

According to the docs, Simmons then “reached over and forcefully placed his hand on her vagina, completely covering it.”

She also says that during his visit to the eatery, she witnessed Simmons act “in a sexually charged manner with other women,” claiming she saw him touch their hair and “tell them to unbutton their shirts.”

The unidentified woman is suing for sexual battery and seeking unspecified damages.
