Gene Simmons - Gene Simmons: 'Things Are Not Terrific Between Me And Shannon'

Subscribe to Gene Simmons alerts

Rocker Gene Simmons has promised to "work things out" with longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed after confessing things are not "terrific" between the couple.
Model Tweed stormed off the set of a U.S. TV interview with Simmons last week (15Jun11) when the Kiss rocker joked about his fabled philandering ways.
The couple bickered throughout a brief appearance together on The Joy Behar Show, with Tweed calling her partner "a pig" after he joked about his womanising, before walking off the live segment, announcing, "It's over. It's so rude of you to joke about it."
Simmons has now addressed the break-up rumours, revealing their relationship is rocky but he's committed to making things right.
During an appearance on U.S. show The Talk on Monday (20Jun11), he said, "Things are not all terrific between Shannon and myself but we're working on it... I'm not a plumber or a dentist. I'm surrounded by a lifestyle. And the problem is you're surrounded by beautiful women. You can be an ugly Sob (son of a b**ch) like me and women will still throw themselves at you.
"For the record I love Shannon Tweed. I want to work this out. There's no chance of me ever running out on my kids or Shannon. I will do anything I can to make sure I finally grow up and be a man.The bottom line is if you love somebody, you have to draw the line in the sand (and say) I can't cross this line."
And when asked by host Sharon Osbourne if his infidelities were to blame for the problems, Simmons answered: "Yes... (But) they're gone (now)."
Problems between Simmons and Tweed were sparked by a photo of the rocker posing with two young blondes outside a Los Angeles restaurant. Discussing the shot on the Today show last week (13Jun11), Tweed said, "I'm sick of hearing it, I'm sick of seeing it, and I'm sick of looking at it... Gene, please don't play me for a fool."
Simmons addressed reports of a bust-up in a series of tweets posted during the season premiere of his reality TV show Gene Simmons Family Jewels last week (14Jun11).
He wrote, "Sometimes it takes stepping back and seeing yourself like this to see what missteps you might have made... I hate seeing her (Tweed) like this. Hurts twice as much when I am the reason."
On the show, the couple is seen working through problems with a therapist.
