We all know how stressful Christmas shopping can be, and turns out it all got to be a bit much for Kiss bassist and celebrity playboy, Gene Simmons.

Whilst shopping, Simmons was provoked when a couple tried to film him at the mall, asking him questions about his sexual reputation.

Simmons, who is internationally known for his tongue-wagging sexual innuendos, famously claims to have slept with over a thousand women. But, apparently, he doesn’t like to be questioned about it while doing last-minute holiday shopping.

He allegedly choked and head-butted the couple yelling “I will kill you!”.

They then unsuccessfully appealed for a restraining order against Simmons. The court threw them out. Now they are suing Simmons for assault and emotional distress (after all he totally ruined their Christmas right?). They want $25,000 in damages.

The court is not taking the couple seriously. And neither are we.
