The Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman has been accused of raping a woman when she was 17 years old

Maynard James Keenan has responded to the rape allegations levelled against him earlier this week.

The Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman has been accused of raping a woman when she was 17 years old and giving her a sexually transmitted infection.

Twitter user @IWas17HeWas36 posted the claims on the social media platform on June 22. “I have to anonymously tell this story because I tried to tell it from my real account and couldn’t name him directly out of fear, so I deleted the tweets,” she wrote. “Here goes: I was 17 and he was 36.”

Deep breath. I have to anonymously tell this story because I tried to tell it from my real account and couldn't name him directly out of fear, so I deleted the tweets. Here goes: I was 17 and he was 36. 1/

She continued to explain she had gone to see A Perfect Circle play with Nine Inch Nails in 2000 with their high school boyfriend and said Keenan had noticed her in the front row. “A heavy-set, blonde, white woman came out to meet us,” she wrote. “She looked at me and asked, “Do you want to meet the band?””

We were in the front row and my boyfriend had his arms around me. The band started. Maynard noticed me in the crowd. Not that it matters what I wore, but I was wearing a NIN tank top and baggy cargo pants with flat-soled combat boots. 3/

When the woman asked if she could take her boyfriend, she said she was told the blonde woman only had one pass. She went backstage and met Keenan, who she asked to sign her hand. “I was ready to go back with my bf,” she continued. “NIN was starting and I didn’t want to miss it. But Maynard kept chatting. He asked me how old I was. I said, “I’m 17.” Then he said, “I can’t talk to you here, let’s go watch a movie” and he pulled me away from everyone and onto a tour bus.”

Maynard was sitting on a picnic table and was staring at me. NIN hadn’t gone on yet so I thought I had plenty of time to get an autograph and get back to the show and my boyfriend. I didn’t have a piece of paper, so I asked Maynard to sign my hand. /6

“He started rubbing my neck. At this point, I fell silent. He talked about the film, Johnny Depp, and Hunter S. Thompson while he started taking his pants off. All I could do was sit there, looking at the movie, unable to move.”

The anonymous woman then described the musician “raping [her] as fast as he could,” saying “there was no consent made.” “He did not seduce me, he forced me, quickly taking advantage of my paralyzed state,” she said. “It took me years to process his actions.”

I froze so he had to move my body into a missionary position. He pulled off my cargo pants. He forced himself in- there was no attempt at "warming up". I mention this because this wasn't about sex. This was about raping me as fast as he could. /10

There was no consent made. I was not high. I was clean. He did not seduce me, he forced me, quickly taking advantage of my paralyzed state. It took me years to process his actions. He came all over my torso and didn’t wipe me off. There were stains on my tank top when I left. /12

Now, Keenan has responded to the claims on his Twitter page. “Many thanks to those of you who saw right through this despicable false claim that only does damage to the #metoo movement. And shame on those of you who perpetuate this destructive clickbait. As for my delayed but un-required response, I had my phone off. You should try it.”

None of the bands Keenan is a member of have commented on the claims. Keenan has made no further statement on the allegations at present.
