Gene Simmons to Play Michael Jackson Tribute After Calling Him Pedophile

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Gene Simmons will perform at the Michael Jackson tribute concert, even though he’s publicly called Jackson a pedophile.

In 2010, the KISS bassist was quoted as saying, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. There’s no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.”

Simmons continued, “The only sexual references ever made about Michael Jackson that were made by anyone, anywhere around the world, have always been made by kids, and specifically males usually 10 to 14 years of age; never females, that age or older, and never grown men.”

This morning, however, promoters confirmed that KISS has signed on to perform at “Michael Forever – The Tribute Concert,” set to take place in Wales on October 8.
