Gene Simmons had his home searched by Los Angeles police Thursday in connection to a child pornography case, but authorities insist that no one in the KISS rock star's family is involved in the investigation.

The Crimes Against Children Taskforce search was in connection with "a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS," a Simmons representative told Reuters in a statement.

"No one in the Simmons family is a suspect in this investigation," an LAPD official told the news agency.

"Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation," a police statement said. "At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it."

Simmons’ wife, Shannon Tweed, took to Twitter Thursday to express her outrage at what may have occurred at her home:


She added:


But on Friday, Tweed also challenged a news report by KTLA, saying on Twitter, "@KTLA you are mistaken. Nothing was found on our home computers as Mary Beth reported. We'd be happy to discuss when we're allowed."

KTLA quoted a TMZ report that someone may have downloaded porn onto one or more computers in the home. In its story, TMZ gave credit to a law enforcement source for that information.
