Metal band Rammstein have responded after a fan alleged that she was drugged at a party attended by lead singer, Till Lindemann.
Writing in a long social media post, fan Shelby Lynn says that she was chosen to attend a pre-party before a Rammstein gig in the Lithuania capital of Vilnius, on May 22.
She alleges that her drinks were spiked and she was left with some minor injuries, before being taken to a room during the middle of the show, where she refused to have sex with the German singer.
Now, the band have offered their first statement on the matter, categorically denying the allegations.
Lynn has not made any direct accusations as to who she believes drugged her.
Their short statement reads: “With regard to the allegations circulating on the internet about Vilnius, we can rule out the possibility that what is being claimed took place in our environment.
“We are not aware of any official investigations into this matter.”
In a thread on Twitter, Lynn alleges that she was picked specially to attend the party by Joe Letz, who is the drummer of Lindemann’s side-project band, Lindemann.
After drinking a ‘small Red Bull/vodka and a Prosecco and a tequila shot', she claims she started to feel ‘like a human zombie, singing, dancing, but also stumbling tripping’.
Then, during an intermission in the show, she claims that she refused to have sex with Lindemann after being taken to a room beneath the stage, and says that the 60-year-old singer reacted angrily to that, storming out of the room.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, she also detailed how she vomited afterwards and had physical bruises upon returning to her hotel.
She shared photographs showing that online, as well as claiming that she was feeling the effects of the alleged drugging for more than a day after the fact, including hallucinating.
Lynn added on Twitter that she would be attempting to get a toxicology report to see if she was spiked with drugs once she returned home.
Rammstein formed in Berlin in 1994, and their line-up has been unchanged since their formation.
They have released eight albums over the course of their career, selling more than 20 million copies worldwide, according to record label, Universal Music Japan.
UNILAD has contacted Rammstein and Shelby Lynn for a further comment.
