Gene Simmons Scores Victory Against Nanny In Court

KISS rocker Gene Simmons has successfully fended off a lawsuit brought by a former nanny in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The lawsuit, filed by a former nanny of Simmons and longtime companion Shannon Tweed, was dismissed by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge after "the factual basis of the evidence on which the lawsuit was filed came into serious question," said Charles Goldstein, Simmons' lawyer, in a statement to the press. What evidence exactly was unknown at press time.

"We never thought anyone we treated like family would sue us," said Simmons in a statement after the victory. "The dismissal of the case was a complete vindication because we always treated her with respect and dignity," added Tweed.
