Gene Simmons Proposes To Shannon Tweed
July 26, 2011
Rocker Gene Simmons has proposed to his girlfriend of 28 years, Shannon Tweed.
The KISS frontman and the model are parents to 22-year-old son Nicholas and 18-year-old daughter Sophie, and have lived together since 1985.
They are currently starring in reality TV show Gene Simmons Family Jewels, on which their strained relationship has come under the spotlight – last month the couple fell out during the filming of the show after Simmons poked fun at his infamous womanising ways.
But now the star has pledged his love to the former Playboy model, getting on his knees to propose on the season finale of the programme.
In a clip of the show, he tells Tweed, “I come with so much baggage, but you’re the only friend I’ve got. You’re the only one I’ve ever loved. You’re the only one I love and you’re the only one I ever will love, and I will say those words to anybody.”
The rocker then drops to his knees, when Tweed bursts into tears and holds her hands over her mouth as he asks her, “Please marry me.”
Tweed’s answer will be shown when the episode airs on Tuesday.
