So basically it looks like he probably told Shannon Tweed that this happened a long time ago, and that of course he doesn't cheat on her. Yes, I know they have an open relationship, but it always seems like the guys take that sentence a little more literally than the woman huh? Anyway, if this tape were not of Gene, his legal team would not be looking at all the options available to him, but would have already been in court to try and stop the distribution of the tape. Since we haven't heard from anyone on Gene's legal team, I am guessing that his legal team is in negotiations to get a piece of the profits of the tape, and if that doesn't work will then sue. “Yes, honey it happened a long time ago, I swear. But, as long as it happened don't you think we should make some money off it. I mean I bet you would love a trip to Europe or some new clothes.”
In the aftermath of this week's release of the Gene Simmons sex tape, Gene has no doubt been kissing a lot of Shannon Tweed ass. I love what Gene wrote on his website. “Hi everyone. You may have heard or seen garbage that has sprung up from my past.”Rest assured the proper legal team is looking at all ramifications and options.”Once again, thank you (and I can't say it enough) for your overwhelming support for the family and myself. Your emails have been gracious and I am humbled. Onward. Today is a new day.”
I think the people who actually have the best chance of making some money off this are Foreigner. Yes, it is their song that can be heard in the background. Further, the tape is being sold commercially and so they have a very good case to get some money unless they already sold a license to the song which I doubt. I wonder if their record sales have gone up this week or if the song has been downloaded more than usual.
