Search warrant served at home of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons
LOS ANGELES — A search warrant was served at the home of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The division that handles online crimes against children executed the warrant on Thursday, according to Lt. John Jenal of the Los Angeles Police Department.
“No members of the Simmons family are suspects in the case and were extremely cooperative,” he said.
Authorities did not provide additional information, citing an ongoing investigation. CNN attempts to reach Simmons’ publicist and lawyers were unsuccessful Thursday night.
The warrant was connected to an incident that occurred on the property last year while Simmons was away touring with his band, CNN affiliate KCAL reported, citing the rocker’s publicist. Authorities requested Simmons and his family not to discuss the case to avoid undermining the investigation, the affiliate said.
Simmons is best known as a frontman and co-founder of the rock band Kiss, but he wears many hats, including record producer and songwriter.
He also starred in a reality television show on A&E, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” which documented life with his wife and children.
