Kiss This

A Los Angeles man claimed in a lawsuit that Gene Simmons took him for a ride with the Indy Racing League.

Allan Brown filed suit September 3, claiming Simmons and two business partners cut him out of a 2006 marketing deal between the KISS bassist and the racing league.

Brown claims he helped broker the deal between Simmons and the IRL but that Simmons and his partners cut him out of the contract and mischaracterized him as “lazy” and “rich” to IRL officials.

Simmons promoted IndyCar racing in 2006 and co-wrote a song called “I Am INDY.”
