Gene Simmons: Booted From MJ Tribute Concert!

by at . Comments

Gene Simmons will no longer be performing at the Michael Jackson tribute concert set for October after the promoters pulled the plug on KISS hard.

The rocker, who accused Michael of being a pedophile, has been dropped from the roster just one day after it was announced Gene would perform.

Just last year, the rocker said he was child molester, in no uncertain terms: "There is no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt."

The promoters now tell TMZ, "We have listened to the fans and are grateful to have been alerted to these unfortunate statements by Gene Simmons." 

"Under the circumstances we fully agree that even though KISS is a band Michael admired we have no choice but to rescind our invitation to them."

The star's estate had fired off a letter yesterday, expressing displeasure over KISS performing at the concert ... and criticizing the concert in general.

There is discord among Jackson's family members regarding the October show, which Prince, Paris and Blanket have expressed interest in attending.

Jackson's parents, Joe and Katherine, are helping put it together, while two of his brothers (and many fans) believe the event is inappropriate.

Mister Gene Simmons; It is my gut feeling that MJ was as you stated and was a lot mixed up in his appearance and in his mind, he was still a kid and a want a be one. I felt sorry for him when he was alive but now he is gone and as they say; "leat the sleeping dog lie."

He was a child molester , His children need dna testing they look middle eastern or hungarian. The world is a better place without him.

An innocent person..."i will not call that child molester a man"Would not give the families millions of dollars to keep quiet. When i heard that jackson died, i was glad that 1 more pedophile was dead. Gene had the balls to say what a lot of people thought(think)...Good for him.

Gene has every right to say wha he said. There is very little doubt that Jackson boffed little boys, judging by the evidence in court. At least Gene Simmons has the guts to tell the truth. Not so common in today's politically correct world.
