His alleged behaviour was reported to a supervisor and then escalated to human resources, and the singer was subsequently given a permanent ban from the NY building, with his photograph being posted at the security entrance with a "do no admit" warning.

Gene Simmons, the legendary frontman of the band Kiss, was a frequent contributor on Fox News and Fox Business Network shows.

It is alleged that Simmons "crudely insulted female Fox staffers, taunted them and exposed his chest" in a completely freaky visit.

Management at Fox reportedly placed Simmons photograph at the security entrance of the company's headquarters in New York City, with a "do-not-admit" advisory.

According to The Daily Beast, the beginning of the end for Simmons's relationship with Fox began Wednesday morning, after he promoted his new book, "On Power", during appearances on "Fox & Friends" and "Mornings with Maria".

Simmons added that he was "deadly serious" when he said that 'Men are jackasses.

"From the time we're young - we have testosterone, I'm not validating it or defending it - guys need to be training from a very, very young age from their mothers, from their loved ones, to understand that half the world's population are female and they need to be treated with respect".

Simmons also jumped out of his chair to help Janice Dean do her weather report, a segment the meteorologist enjoyed enough to post on Twitter. In a completely real story, The Daily Beast detailed some incredibly absurd behavior from Simmons during a recent visit to the studio prompting signs to go up around the building not permitting him entry on a permanent basis.

The musician reportedly barged in on a staff meeting, uninvited, before shouting, "Hey chicks, sue me", and opening his red velvet shirt to reveal his bare chest and stomach. "It was pretty severe", one source said.

Simmons' outburst was reported to a supervisor and to human resources executive Kevin Lord.

The musician appeared on two of the network's programs, Fox and Friends and Mornings with Maria, in an effort to push his recently published book, "On Power".

DailyMail.com has reached out to Simmons' representatives for comment.
