KISS bassist Gene Simmons recently asserted he will not allow his children, Nick, 18, and Sophie, 15, to live off his fortune. The fifty-eight year old rock star wants his children to make their own money and have careers, as opposed to living off the millions he earned with KISS.

Gene, his partner Shannon Tweed, and the children appear in the A&E reality show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, documenting life as a rock-star family.
