GENE SIMMONS KISSES CALIFORNIA GOODBYE AND RELOCATES TO NEVADA
According to the New York Post , KISS’ Gene Simmons is ditching California for Nevada.
The bassist, and his wife Shannon Tweed, recently paid $8.2 million on an 11,000-square-foot spread in the desert of Henderson, Nev., just outside Las Vegas, according to reports.
“We are moving out of LA for a number of reasons,” Simmons, 71, told The Post back in March, citing among other gripes, onerous taxes that make California “inhabitable.”
“I’m done [with California],” he said. “There are earthquakes, fires and pandemics every year. Even though there is nice sunshine, I’m done.”
Simmons had lived for many years on a two-acre estate in Beverly Hills. That home is on the market for $20 million. He currently lives in a 12,000-square-foot mansion in Lake Tahoe.
His new Vegas pad reportedly boasts six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a koi pond and sprawling views of the desert valley.
