'Michael Jackson molested kids', says Gene Simmons

Hilarious panto-rock band Kiss have been struck off the bill of a tribute concert for Michael Jackson after it was discovered that frontman Gene Simmons believes that Jacko was a child molestor.

As if it wasn't already funny enough that the band had even been asked to perform at the gig in Cardiff – what on earth do they have to do with Michael Jackson? – it was uncovered that Simmons, who's never been afraid of a headline or two, told Classic Rock Magazine that 'where there’s smoke there's fire. There's no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.' As much as Simmons loves any chance to raise his profile or make a few quid, he's not going to be able to wriggle his way out of this one.

'Under the circumstances, we fully agree that even though Kiss is a band Michael admired, we have no choice but to rescind our invitation for them to appear at our tribute concert,' said Global Events Live CEO Chris Hunt. Oops.
