Gene Simmons’ daughter did not spend Father's Day with her dad. Instead, Sophie Simmons flew out to San Francisco to try out for The X Factor.
While Gene and Sophie do have a close relationship, Sophie decided to spend Sunday with Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
"This isn't about my dad. This is all about my audition," Sophie reportedly told the judges, asking to be judged on merit and not by her surname.
Sophie may or may not have made it to the next round, but with a rock star for a dad, she's likely not afraid of performing on the stage at least.
Speaking of dad, he wasn't feeling snubbed. Gene actually took a private jet out to see his daughter as she tried out for the Fox show. Awww.
Other highlights of the San Francisco auditions:
- Britney Spears meeting a familiar face, a gay contestant who came out publicly after auditioning in front of The X Factor panel.
- Demi Lovato's hair!
