The KISS drama is in full effect. After a recent interview in which Gene Simmons said “Could we depend on either Ace of Peter to do a full set night after night? Not on your fucking life,” Frehley took exception to that and started throwing jabs at his former bandmate.
Yesterday, Frehley released a statement calling Simmons a sex addict and saying that Simmons recently attempted to grope Frehley's wife. “You’re just an asshole and a sex addict who’s being sued by multiple women, and you’re just trying to sweep it all under the carpet! The icing on the cake was when you groped my wife and propositioned her in Los Angeles at the Capitol Records building behind my back … She was planning on pursuing a suit against you, but I told her to call it off!!!"
Rachel Gordon, who is Ace's main squeeze, reportedly responded to a friend on Facebook about the drama and offered this insane nugget of information:
Let me tell you.
They tried to have Ace killed in the 70’s. Tried sending him to a so called ‘private party’ in the Bahamas.
Ace is VERY sober now and knows what’s happening.
He sees things clearly now.
He doesn’t need a chain of low brow restaurants; he plays the guitar. That’s what he does.
KISS have yet to respond to the accusation.
Loudwire notes that while Frehley refers to Gordon as his wife, he is still legally married to his first wife, Jeanette Trerotola. Ace said in an interview last year “I’m still legally married to my first wife and her health hasn’t been that good. I’m not in a position to force a divorce on her so I can marry Rachael but that’s going to happen down the road.”
