KISS’ farewell tour kicks off tonight (January 31) in Vancouver, but that’s not the reason they’ve been making the news this week.

After an unusual verbal spat between Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley, Frehley’s girlfriend, Rachel Gordon, has now chimed in with a wild accusation.

In the comment section of a recent Facebook post about the KISS chaos, Gordon wrote the following:

“Let me tell you.  They tried to have Ace killed in the 70’s. Tried sending him to a so-called ‘private party’ in the Bahamas.  Ace is VERY sober now and knows what’s happening. He sees things clearly now. He doesn’t need a chain of low brow restaurants; he plays the guitar. That’s what he does. F-CK THEM.”  

All of this started with Simmons’ harsh comments about not wanting Frehley and Peter Criss on the farewell tour on a full-time basis. Frehley then fired back via Facebook calling Simmons a “sex addict” and accusing him of groping and propositioning his wife.

Neither Simmons nor Paul Stanley has released any statement about the accusations from Frehley or Gordon.

Call it a hunch, but this whole ordeal is far from over.
