An LAPD task force focusing on internet crimes against children reportedly executed a search warrant on KISS tongue guy Gene Simmons’ home last night. Neither Simmons nor his family members are currently suspects in the investigation and all were said to be “very cooperative.”
The task force is apparently looking into some event that occurred while Simmons was on tour last year, though details are still vague—he and his family were reportedly advised not to disclose the particulars of the warrant to the press. Via CNN:
The rocker’s publicist said the police visit was connected with a crime that may have occurred on the property last year while Simmons was away touring with his band.
Authorities requested Simmons and his family not to discuss the case to avoid undermining the investigation, publicist Cheyanne Baker said in a statement.
Even so, Simmons wife, Shannon Tweed, later tweeted “We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes,” and advised her followers, “don’t forget to change your passwords!”
