Gene Simmons Fights Restraining Order

12/23/2009 9:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gene SimmonsGene Simmons successfully fought off a restraining order today in which a couple claimed the KISS member threatened to kill them.

Nathan Marlowe and Cynthia Manzo filed papers asking the court to keep Simmons away from them, but the judge rejected the order.

Marlowe claims he was at The Grove shopping mall in L.A. on December 19 when he tried to film Simmons. He says he then asked Simmons about "his public persona about monogamy." Marlowe claims Simmons grabbed him by the throat, headbutted and choked him and said, "I will end you."

Marlowe says Simmons took his camera. Marlowe claims Simmons then grabbed his wife by the throat and threatened, "I will kill you." Marlowe says Simmons then made off with his camera in an SUV.

The papers were filed in L.A. County Superior Court. The judge claims she rejected the petition partly because the couple failed to show "a threat of future harm."

It is my earnest opinion that Gene Simmons is a pompous assh---. His egotistical behavior and attitude toward others I find to be reprehensible. I thank those strange stringy phony hair is too tight or the black dye has soaked through to the brain. I'm sure this has been jerk has no idea how obnoxious he is and how much most people loathe him.

Richard Hantz of Survivor is more grounded than Gene Simmmons. See his interview and how he protected his family.

Gene has every right to protect his brand name and the KISS empire. He is within the legal limits, just as he was with shutting down the KISS BURGER website.

Go Gene!

I was duped into dating this moron when I worked for Casablanca Records in the 70's. Hes arrogant and mean. Im better than all the women he has bedded cuz he never even got to first base with me. He was a pig then and he is a pig now. The KISS fans created a monster in him.

Gene was at Mario Barths first tattoo show in NJ years ago, and tried to start a fight after the meet-and-greet by doing a stare-down at some guy in the audience. Dude should have beat his ass in.

Have ya noticed, KISS has not had a singe hit since the 70s?
