Playing EXCLUSIVE: Gene Simmons’ Daughter Reveals Why Police Searched Her Family's Home

Sophie Simmons explains what really went down when the police showed up to search her family's Los Angeles home in August.

According to a statement obtained by ET from the rep of Sophie's father, Gene Simmons, the LAPD Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force went to the house "to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS." Though, the Simmons family were never suspects themselves.

"But, someone used our IP address or our Wi-Fi to access something which is a relatively easy thing to do."

The 23-year-old further explained, "If you're ever driving down the street and your phone asks you if you want to use someone's WIFI and you say yes, you're now using their IP address so anything you do is linked back to whatever WIFI that is."

"So, I think they've kind of moved passed us and they're still pursuing the case.
