LAPD officers searched the home of rocker Gene Simmons on Thursday, but neither the KISS bassist nor any members of his family are considered suspects in the investigation, authorities said.

Officers from the department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force entered the Benedict Canyon home near Beverly Hills — featured in the reality show “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels” — serving a warrant, police said.

Lt. John Jenal said the detectives involved want to emphasize that the 65-year-old Simmons and his family were “extremely cooperative” and none of them are suspected of a crime.

“Today (Aug. 20, 2015) members of the Los Angeles Police Department visited Mr. And Mrs. Simmons at their home to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS,” a rep for Simmons said in a statement.

“Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation.

At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it.”

Wife of the rock star, Shannon Tweed-Simmons, tweeted out a statement thanking everyone for their support while LAPD looked into the crime.

“Thanks for your support,” she wrote. “We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it.”
