Gene Simmons, legendary bass player and co-founder of KISS is not only in the midst of filming the fourth season of his hit A&E reality series, Gene Simmons: Family Jewels, but is also currently being sued.

A Los Angeles businessman, Allan Brown is suing Simmons for fraud and slander, accusing him of cutting Brown out of a marketing deal that he signed with the Indy Racing League.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Allan Brown, claims the plaintiff played a key role in negotiating the agreement between the Family Jewels star and two business partners with the IRL.

When Allen Brown took a personal holiday, the trio not only removed him from any involvement but also depicted him to racing officials in a negative light, as “lazy” and “rich,” thereby harming his good name.

Simmons then went on to appear in a series of promos for IndyCar racing in 2006 and cowrote a signature song, “I Am Indy,” as part of the lucrative marketing venture.

Brown’s complaint seeks unspecified damages and Simmons’ lawyer was unavailable for comment.
