Shocking! Lostprophets Singer Ian Watkins Managed To Groom Single Mother Being In Prison
The disgraced former frontman of Lostprophets has apparently been grooming a woman from behind the bars as he serves a 35-year sentence for planning to rape a baby.
Ian Watkins has been writing letter to a 21-year-old single mother who initially met him as a fan when she was 16. When she came to meet him in jail, he made a joke about her two-year-old daughter seeing her have s*x, it is claimed.
The singer was imprisoned in 2013 for a number of child s*x crimes. The mother, who has not been named, has now had her child taken into care after social services were alerted of her contact with Watkins.
The mother exchanged letters and visited him in his high profile jail. He said he loved her and suggested her to wear an engagement ring. She said that during one visit he made a sick comment about her tot seeing her have s*x.
Children’s charity the NSPCC has said it is an ‘absolute shambles’ that Watkins was allowed to carry on grooming from inside prison.
A spokesman told the newspaper: ‘We’re sickened. It’s utterly bewildering that he could carry on grooming.
‘It shows contempt for children he abused, and raises serious questions about supervision.’
According to a friend of the mother, she thought that he was innocent and wrote letters to let him know that people still cared about him.
The unemployed single mother then visited Watkins in November, and discovered he had put on four stone, gone grey and had rotten teeth.
She was shocked when he asked what she would do if her daughter ‘came into the room during sex’.
She told a friend she felt ‘scared’. But she insisted: ‘I won’t let my daughter near him.’
The police took away her mobile phone and laptop and her child was taken from her care. Staff from Wakefield prison told there was nothing untoward found in the pair’s letters.
