She bumped into him while working at Los Angeles’ ESPN Sports Center last November, at which point Simmons allegedly said in “a lecherous and inappropriate manner, ‘I like you.’”

According to the documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Victoria was “surprised by the overtly sexual attention.” She accuses the 60-year-old rocker of grabbing and hugging her, to which she responded: “Ouch. You are hurting me.”

She then tried to back out of his way because “his spiked chest was jabbing her in the face.” Gene refused to let go of the make-up artist, instead “he pulled her even closer, tightly, pinning her arms and said, ‘No not yet.’ ”

He is also accused of inappropriately rubbing himself against her.

According to RadarOnline.com, Victoria -- who described the rocker’s behavior as “vile and inexcusable” -- is seeking over $500,000 in damages.

She claims she has suffered humiliation, shame, embarrassment, anger, anxiety, loss of sleep and depression.

However, Simmons has filed a suit against Victoria, denying the assault and claiming she just wanted money.
