Los Angeles: Musician Gene Simmons is being sued for allegedly groping a woman during the opening of a restaurant last month.

The lawsuit, filed by a Jane Doe, claims she interviewed Simmons last month at the opening of a Rock & Brews in San Bernardino, California. 

The accuser claims during the interview, Simmons reached over, grabbed her hand and forcibly placed it on his knee. She says it made her feel uncomfortable but continued the interview, reports tmz.com.

The documents claim he grabbed the reporter's hand, commented on how soft it was and suggested she must use lotion. Things got weirder when Simmons reached over and allegedly flicked the interviewer's throat.

The defendant says following that action, she did her best to stop the interview but Simmons tried to keep going. Finally, she claims he touched her bottom when everyone posed for a group photograph.
