Rammstein have responded to allegations made online by a fan claiming she was drugged at a pre-show party ahead of the band's recent concert in Lithuania.

Shelby Lynn said her drink was spiked while attending the "pre-party" for the Rammstein show at Vilnius's Vingis Park on May 22 in a Twitter thread, which she posted two days after the alleged incident. She says she was left bruised and vomiting for 24 hours after the concert.

Lynn went on to accuse frontman Till Lindemann of angrily storming off when she allegedly met the singer in a below-stage room during the show's intermission and refused to have sex with him.

Yesterday (May 28), the band issued a statement on the matter via their social media channels. "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," they wrote. "We are not aware of any official investigations into this matter."
In her posts detailing the alleged incident, Lynn alleged that she poured herself a "small vodka Red Bull" at the event — which she claimed she was chosen to attend by Joe Letz, drummer of the Rammstein singer's Lindemann side-project — and then drank one additional drink from the fridge filled with Prosecco and was "not even buzzed."

At around 8 p.m., she said Lindemann came in and asked all the girls at the party to do a tequila shot. He allegedly poured them from the bottle himself upon their agreement. Lynn claimed that the frontman left shortly thereafter to start the show, and that her memory felt "zapped" within 30 minutes. "I'm like a human zombie," she wrote, posting videos of herself stumbling at the concert, as well as photos of the bruising that she discovered upon returning to her hotel after the show.

Lynn claimed to have felt the effects of the drugs, including hallucinations, for over 24 hours following the alleged spiking. She has not explicitly accused anyone in particular of drugging her. A police report does not appear to be filed.
