Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann is in hot water again with more allegations of sexual misconduct emerging. German news outlet Tagesschau has reported that another woman claims to have been drugged by Lindemann and woke up to find him lying on top of her.

Another report has also highlighted that Lindemann has been dropped by publisher Kiepenheuer & Witsch following the discovery of a pornographic video in which Lindemann, according to the publisher, "celebrates sexual violence against women." The publisher has stated that the actions in the video display a gross breach of trust and have irretrievably broken their relationship with the artist.


Rammstein denied the initial allegations, and although they haven't commented on the recent reports, Lindemann's reputation continues to come under scrutiny. The band asserts that they are unaware of any official investigations into the matter. 

The publisher's statement reads:

"It is with shock that we have followed public allegations against Till Lindemann in the last few days. Our sympathy and respect goes to the women affected.

In the course of current reporting, we became aware of a porn video in which Till Lindemann celebrates sexual violence against women and in which the 2013 book 'In still night' published by Kiepenheuer & Witsch plays a role. We rate this as gross breach of trust and as a ruthless act in relation to the values ​​we represent as a publisher.

We defend the freedom of art with full conviction. Through Till Lindemann's actions that humiliate women in the aforementioned porn and the targeted use of our book in a pornographic context, the separation between the 'lyrical I' and the author/artist, which we so staunchly defended, is mocked by the author himself.
From our point of view, Till Lindemann exceeds immovable limits in dealing with women. We have therefore decided to end our collaboration with Till Lindemann with immediate effect, as our relationship of trust with the author has been irretrievably broken."

The scene in question:


In their statement denying the initial allegations, Rammstein wrote:

"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."
