Authorities in Los Angeles say a rock star and reality TV star whose home was searched Thursday is not a suspect in the case they are investigating. The AP reports that the search was conducted after police served a warrant at the home of Gene Simmons in Benedict Canyon near Beverly Hills.
Simmons is best-known as a singer and bass player in the wildly popular rock band KISS, and has starred in a series of TV shows including the A&E reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.”
Simmons’ home was searched by a task force focused on Internet crimes against children, the report notes.
Lt. John Jenal, a spokesman for the police, emphasized that Simmons and his family were “extremely cooperative,” and said no one in the family is suspected of a crime.
Police declined to comment further on the case, the AP notes, and calls to a rep for Simmons were not immediately returned.
