Say you're Gene Simmons, and astute self-marketing--OK, whoring out your image on Visa cards, Coke bottles, and questionable reality TV shows--has driven bajillions into your coffers.

Now say you may possibly cut a dude out of a deal to market an IRL racing team, and you are now being sued.

Simmons is in fact being sued, the AP reports, by Los Angeleno Allan Brown. Brown claims Simmons had agreed to a deal with the Indy Racing League, and that Brown helped broker the deal. According to the claim, Simmons later cut Brown out of the deal--and now he wants what's due.

The lawsuit claims damages, fraud, and slander and Brown wants damages. Maybe there's a cut of the royalties from Simmons' 2006 song, "I Am INDY," in it for him. Or possibly, not.
