GENE SIMMONS's Wife Slams PAUL STANLEY Over PRINCE Apology

Gene Simmons's wife has slammed Paul Stanley after the KISS frontman apologized for his bandmate's comments about Prince.

Earlier this week, Simmons received backlash from friends, family and fans after calling Prince's death "pathetic" and insinuating that the iconic artist died from a drug overdose. Stanley denounced his bandmate's "cold, clueless" statement on Twitter, saying that he was "embarrassed" by Simmons's comments and offering his apologies.

But Gene's wife Shannon Tweed last night told Stanley via Twitter: "We all have our failings, but true friends don't point at them and throw you under the bus. Especially partners of 40 years!"

Stanley replied: "‘Partners of 40 years says it all. Don't confuse walking under the bus with being thrown under. My apology was right."

Tweed then fired back: "You can't apologize for someone else. It's not up to you. He feels the way he feels. He would never do that to you — never."

She also posted a picture of her with Simmons on her Facebook page, commenting: "Because, no matter others' opinions, I love my huzby!"

Simmons yesterday took to Twitter to clarify his remarks about Prince. He explained: "I apologize — I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families/friends of the addicts. I get angry at drug users because of my experience being around them coming up in the rock scene."
