Rammstein: the singer of the group accused of being at the heart of a system of sexual predation


Highlights: Women claim to have been drugged and sexually assaulted by members of the band. The group is scheduled to perform in Vilnius, Lithuania, on July 21. The band has not commented on the allegations. The incident is the latest in a series of alleged incidents involving the band's members and women in the music industry in the U.S. and around the world in the past few years. The case is being investigated by the National Commission for Combating Trafficking in Persons (NCT), which is based in Washington.

It is no longer an "isolated case". A few days after being accused of drugging a young woman before a concert, Till Lindemann, the singer of the German metal band Rammstein, is more than ever in turmoil.

Dozens of testimonies collected by the German media have lifted the veil on a system of sexual predation organized around the singer, reports Liberation. Many young women claim to have had the same experience as Shelby Lynn, a young Irish woman who claimed at the end of May on Twitter to have been drugged and potentially sexually assaulted during a private party during a concert of the group in Vilnius (Lithuania).

According to the investigation conducted by German media, young women were recruited on social networks according to Lindemann's criteria and brought back to the group's dressing rooms - where they were offered alcohol or cocaine - to satisfy the sexual appetite of the star.

"All our witnesses always tell the same process," Daniel Drepper, a German investigative journalist, told Libération. One witness said that she was clearly offered a sexual relationship with Lindemann during a concert in exchange for backstage." "It's still a 60-year-old global star, multimillionaire, who speaks to young girls aged 21 to 22 who adore him," he insists.

Libération specifies that no complaint has been filed for the moment. On Twitter, Rammstein on Monday ruled out "any possibility that what is alleged (by Shelby Lynn) happened in our environment." The scandal comes as the band embarks on a European tour this month. He is scheduled to perform on July 21 at the Stade de France.
