Till Lindemann’s defense counterattacks. The singer of the German metal band Rammstein, accused by several women of sexual assault after concerts, firmly denies these accusations, his lawyers said Thursday, June 8 in a press release. “On social networks, in particular Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, serious accusations have been made by various women against our client“, write the Berlin lawyers Simon Bergmann and Christian Schertz.

“It has thus been claimed on several occasions that women were drugged with GHB or alcohol at Rammstein concerts, in order to allow our client to perform sexual acts on them”they add. “These accusations are invariably false”assure the lawyers. “We will immediately take legal action for all such allegations”they threaten.

Several similar testimonials

The case began at the end of May with the testimony of a 24-year-old Irish woman accusing the singer and lyricist of the group of having drugged and sexually assaulted her after a concert the same month in Lithuania. This testimony released the words of other young women, all describing more or less the same scenario.

The groupies would have been spotted in the front rows of the concerts, filmed or photographed so that Till Lindemann could make his choice, before, for some, being invited backstage for parties. Some say they were then drugged before being attacked by the 60-year-old singer.

Several concert venues, in Munich and Berlin in particular, where the German group is due to perform, in the middle of a European tour, have given up installing the zone (“Row Zero”) just in front of the stage in which the singer would have spotted the young women.
