If you have a television you've no doubt heard about the nonsense going on between Gene Simmons and his long-time live-in mannequin, Shannon Tweed.

If not, here's a reasonably short clip that will bring you up to speed.

I'm not buying it. Not for a second.

Let me tell you what I think of Gene Simmons. The more I learn about him, the less I like him. He is a complete scumbag. His marketing skills are legendary, but this is more than offset by the fact of his being a really lousy human being. I am proud to be able to say that, in the thirty-seven years since I was first 'introduced' to KISS, I have not paid for their music, purchased a concert ticket or bought any kind of KISS merchandise. Gene Simmons can crow all he wants about how much money he's taken from people. He's not received one red cent from me.

As I said, though, I do give him credit for his amazing marketing skills. And that's why I don't believe what is apparently going on, and why I will continue to disbelieve it until Shannon Tweed either sues him for tens of millions of dollars or goes all "Brynn Omdahl" on him. Either will convince me. Don't let me down, Shannon.

Agreed. Must be fakeHowever it being true does follow the law of celebrity marriages never lasting.
well they aren't necessarily married.

I don't know what the law is like in California. Up here in Ontario, if a couple lives together for a year or more, they are considered to be common-law. All this really means is that they can take advantage of whatever tax goodies exist for married couples. (Trust me, there aren't many.) Less than a year is acceptable if there's a child involved. So under Canadian law, they could be treated as a married couple for the purposes of spousal/child support and so on, provided one filed the appropriate paperwork in court.

Most states in the US I believe have 3-5 years for common-law to kick in.
