These days Till Lindemann is in trouble with the law. Several women have made serious accusations against the iconic Rammstein singer. It’s about abuse of power, sexual assault, use of drugs. One of these women is Shelby Lynn. Who is she? Did Till Lindemann assault Shelby Lynn?

Till Lindemann is a German musician, poet, and lead vocalist of the German Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) band Rammstein. Born on January 4, 1963, in Leipzig, East Germany, Lindemann rose to international fame as the frontman of Rammstein, known for their powerful and provocative performances.

Lindemann’s distinctive deep and powerful vocal style has become one of Rammstein’s defining characteristics. He is also known for his intense stage presence and theatrical performances, often incorporating pyrotechnics and dramatic elements into the band’s live shows.

Who is Shelby Lynn?

Shelby Lynn is a fan of the iconic rock band Rammstein. She had claimed that she visited the band backstage at the Rammstein concert in Vilnius and was drugged there. She has claimed that Till Lindemann, the singer of Rammstein, asked her to have sex and got very angry because she refused to have sex with him.

On Twitter she posted photos of her injuries and wrote the following:

“Bruising including what seems to be finger marks from being grabbed maybe. I don’t know when these bruises happened because I was so off my head under the influence of something. This is from the night of and morning after.”

While many Rammstein supporters are still devoted to the band, some have already abandoned them. Till Lindemann, the band’s vocalist, is currently dealing with the first business repercussions as a result of revelations regarding the most recent claims.

The 60-year-old’s book “In stillen Nächten,” which contains about 100 of his poems, plays a part in this. It was released in 2013 by Kiepenheuer & Witsch, and Lindemann most likely will not publish another book with the Cologne-based publisher after this one.

Kiepenheuer & Witsch, the publisher of Till Lindemann`s book has immediately terminated the cooperation with the Rammstein singer and released the following statement:


We have been shocked by the accusations against Till Lindemann that have become public in recent days. Our sympathy and respect goes to the affected women.

In the course of the current reporting, we have become aware of a porn video in which Till Lindemann celebrates sexual violence against women and in which the book “In stillen Nächten”, published by Kiepenheuer & Witsch in 2013, plays a role. We consider this to be a gross breach of trust and a reckless act towards the values we as a publishing house represent.

We defend the freedom of art with full conviction. However, through Till Lindemann’s humiliating acts towards women in the said porno and the targeted use of our book in a pornographic context, the separation between the “lyrical I” and the author/artist, which we defend so ironically, is mocked by the author himself.

From our point of view, Till Lindemann crosses immutable boundaries in his dealings with women. We have therefore decided to terminate our cooperation with Till Lindemann with immediate effect, as our relationship of trust with the author is incurably broken.

This question will answer the court. Shelby Lynn has shared on Twitter that she will not stay quiet and will not accept money from Till Lindemann. She wants to be the voice of many victims.

“They could offer me 10 billion I still wouldn’t take it. I will not be silenced, I will be the voice for the many MANY victims.”
