Sophie Simmons, whose father is the frontman for legendary rock band KISS, auditioned on Wednesday night’s final audition for “The X Factor”.
The 19-year-old singer made it through to the next round after wowing the judges including Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell.
Simmons wanted to try and make it with her own singing ability and not just because of her famous father.
But her cover was blown when judge Demi Lovato recognized her as Nick Simmons’ sister and Gene Simmons’ daughter.
In an interview before her audition, Sophie said, “My dad is Gene Simmons from KISS. I really just want to step out of being the daughter of the guy from KISS. I want to be my own person and hopefully this is the way to show the world who I am.”
Frehley revealed that Gene, who recently wed his girlfriend of 28 years, Shannon Tweed, originally only had sex “once or twice a year” but later slept with “hundreds” of women the band became more successful.
In Ace’s book, entitled “No Regrets: A Rock ‘n Roll Memoir”, he stated, “I believe Gene is a sex addict, in much the same way I am an alcoholic. If you’ve been with only one or two women (and had to beg for whatever you got off them), it must be intoxicating to suddenly have groupies falling all over you.
“You go from getting laid once or twice a year to getting laid a hundred times by a hundred different women.”
After 28 years together, Kiss frontman Gene Simmons and former Playboy model, Shannon Tweed, tied the knot earlier this month, and the world got to watch the couple say “I do” on last night’s episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels.
Gene and Shannon were married in a lavish ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel in front of over 400 guests.
Shannon looked gorgeous in her ivory Priscilla of Boston gown, which was just one of the three dresses she wore that evening. You only get to do this once hopefully, right?
