Gene Simmons: I Can't Grind a Girl in Suit of Armor

5/14/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

KISS frontman Gene Simmons is striking back at an ESPN makeup artist he claims threatened to sue him for an assault he says never took place.

Simmons says on January 29 he received a letter from lawyers for Victoria Jackson, claiming that Simmons "humped" and "grinded" Jackson during a visit to ESPN's "SportsCenter." 

According to Simmons' complaint, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Jackson claims she “suffered from humiliation, shame, embarrassment, anger, anxiety, loss of sleep and depression,” and demanded $185,000 or else.

Simmons has a simple response -- he was in costume the entire time -- which is like "a suit of armor, particularly around his groin area, making it impossible for Simmons to have done the kind of grinding that Jackson claims to have experienced."

That crazy old SOB’s brain is fried from too much crack. He needs to go sit his old unattractive @zz down somewhere and shut the hell up.

Oh, good Lord...Gene can barely walk in that get-up anymore, let alone grind. It is another shake-down for money. Besides with those stilts for shoes he wears, just where on her anatomy was he humping and grinding? her belly-button? another chick wanting 15 minutes.

Kiss was a poseur band, and Gene was the biggest poseur of them all. Didn't he get caught in a sex act with some other chick besides his wife not too long ago?
