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."

Hey 13, maybe ABBA will come back on tour for you...does a top hit have relevance in this a all? Does anyone seriously believe Gene would jeopardize his rep on some jackass and his girl after the fool asks how he feels about monogamy? Gene has way too much to sepnd his time on. maybe he takes the camera after the question sunk in, maybe the dude or his his girl made some snide comment, trying to get Gene to react. Put someone in this as a witness then you can make a case.

I for one think Gene Simmons is in the right. He these freaks shouldnt be allowed to harrass anyone. If Mr. Simmons was an ordinary guy and someone did that to him this wouldnt be an issue.
I for one think Gene Simmons is a good man. He loves his family and has every right to defend them.

Mr. Simmons if your reading this Good for you. I am one of your biggest fans. I admire your business sence and I think your family is lucky to have such a great provider.
