Mothers Allow Brit Rock Singer to Rape their Infants – Parenthood Does Not Make People More Godly Mature or Loving
I am not clear at this point if the rock star in question, Ian Watkins of the band LostProphets, is a father or is married himself.
(edit. Someone on another site said he is in fact a father. He has children of his own, they said. I do not know if this is accurate.)
If he is, this is just another example of a married person/ parent engaging in deviant, disgusting behavior.
The Daily Mail reports that he at least has a ‘former girlfriend.’ One site (link) says,
- Ian Watkins, also known mirrorboy, is not married. He is the lead vocalist and lyricist of the alternative rock band called Lostprophets from Wales. Watkins had affairs with Fearne Cotton in 2004-2005, and pop world host Alexa Chung.
The news reports are saying that two women each allowed this singer to rape their infants, or were going to allow him to, before being caught by police. The reports say they fondled and sexually assaulted their children in Skype chats with the singer, at his request.
It takes a special kind of scum ball to want to rape an infant and to sexually abuse animals (yes, this sicko was also caught sexually abusing animals, said two or three other reports I saw).

- The lead singer of the rock band Lostprophets has pleaded guilty to multiple child sex offenses, including the attempted rape of a baby.
Ian Watkins pleaded guilty to the “depraved” sex charges in Cardiff Crown Court in Wales on Tuesday, Nov. 26, the BBC reported. He admitted to the attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13 years old, “three counts of sexual assault involving children and six involving taking, making or possessing indecent images of children and one of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving a sex act on an animal.”
Alongside Watkins, two female co-defendants pleaded guilty to various sex offenses against their own children, the South Wales Evening Post reported. He admitted to attempting to rape the 11-month-old baby boy of one of the co-defendants and conspiring to rape the baby girl of the other.

Paedophile Watkins, 36, from Pontypridd, south Wales, insists he has no memory of what would have been key video evidence at the trial showing the abuse of his one-year-old victim, the court heard.
The tattooed singer pleaded guilty to a string of sex offences he had previously denied.
The charges included sexually touching a one-year-old and encouraging a crazed groupie to abuse her own child during a sordid webcam chat.
Watkins also admitted possessing and making child porn as well as launching the plot to rape a baby.

- -Ian Watkins, 36, admitted his guilt after last minute plea-change today
-Star says he couldn’t recall ‘depraved acts’ because he took crystal meth
-Singer admitted he attempted to rape a 11-month-old child in April last year
-The boy’s mother – Woman A – pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting attack
-Another mother – Woman B – allowed singer to plot raping her daughter
-GCHQ ‘cracked’ his laptop and found password was reference to child sex
-Watkins remanded in custody and all three will be sentenced in December
…The singer – a former boyfriend of BBC radio and television presenter Fearne Cotton – pleaded guilty to sex offences involving the babies of two women fans, who helped with the abuse.
He pleaded guilty to attempting to rape the 11-month-old baby of a fan ‘Woman A’ and conspiring to rape the baby daughter of another fan ‘Woman B’.
The two fans, both in their twenties and from different parts of England, are also facing jail after admitting their role in the sex offences on their own children.
..A laptop seized from Watkins’s home was password protected and was later sent to GCHQ to have it ‘cracked.’
Experts found the password was an obscene reference to child abuse and contained a cache of extreme pornography.
After the star finally admitted what he had done, Prosecuting QC Chris Clee gave details of his sickening crimes.
He said: ‘Ian Watkins was the lead singer of a successful band called the Lostprophets.

‘He was also a determined and committed paedophile engaged in serious sex offences involving of two babies.’
Mr Clee read aloud to the court a series of text and internet messages between Watkins and two female co-defendants.
Watkins and Woman A swapped messages where the frontman spoke of his desire to ‘make him mine’ and to ‘cross the line’.
They also spoke of plans to blow crystal-meth smoke into the child’s face at a secret meet up in a Cardiff hotel.
And on March 23, Watkins sent the woman a message saying he wanted a ‘summer of filthy child porn’ and how he wanted to take things ‘to the next level’.
Mr Clee also gave details of a sickening 17-minute video involving Watkins and Woman A.
Mr Clee said camcorder footage was shot in a London hotel room which showed Watkins perform a sex act on the child.
Computer analysts found the footage uploaded to an online cloud storage facility.
Mr Clee said that following this meeting, the pair exchanged emails about how they would not go ‘easy’ on the child next time.
The prosecutor told the judge that both of his attempted rape admissions were accepted, despite Watkins facing rape charges.
…It emerged that he was filmed committing the sex acts on the baby boy the day after Lostprophets final album Weapons was released.
Watkins appeared on BBC Radio 1 just hours before the incident in April last year.
The baby’s mother, Woman A, admits aiding and abetting the attempted rapes on her son.
She also admits sexually touching the child and taking photographs, before sending them to Watkins.
Watkins also admitted conspiring to rape and sexually touch the daughter of the second fan.
He admits aiding and abetting Woman B to touch her daughter while he watched on Skype.
An earlier court hearing was told police had 72 pages of conversations between the pair online talking about their sexual relationship.
Woman B mentioned she had a daughter of a young age and Watkins said: ‘Bring her along as well.’ She said she was getting the child ready for their meeting together – and ‘what they all will do together’ when they meet up.
The prosecution said the investigation led police to discover Woman B and Watkins had met once in a hotel in Cardiff.
…She admits sexual assault after touching the child, she also admits taking an indecent photograph of the child before distributing them.
Watkins also admitted three counts of possessing indecent photographs of children when he appeared at Cardiff Crown Court.
Some of the content was found on internet storage websites CrashPlan and iCloud which Watkins used to keep his data while touring around the world.
Watkins is also accused of taking indecent photographs of a child dating back to 2007 – 10 months after Lostprophets released the biggest selling song Rooftops.
.. Paedophile Watkins’ child sex crimes leave fans around the world in shock
Disgraced rock singer Ian Watkins’ fall from grace has been as sudden as it has been shocking for his fans and bandmates.
..Watkins’ poster boy image and apparently clean-living lifestyle seemed to enhance their appeal further.
In a number of early interviews, the rock singer was more than happy to talk up how he regularly shunned drink and drugs.
…However, cracks in Watkins’s life soon started to appear – with rumours emerging of him being a sex-crazed drug addict who regularly conducted seedy online sex chats with young fans.
Pictures also purporting to show Watkins engaging in a threesome with a transsexual emerged on the internet.
When a journalist from a music magazine quizzed the graphic design graduate about the images he remained coy – and suggested he had faked the photographs as well as leaked them.
Before his trial was aborted, Watkins used the same excuse of “it’s been faked” when video footage of him showing him aroused and with a naked baby was found by police.
…But the prosecution said distinctive arm and neck tattoos proved the person in the video was him.
…Following ‘expert advice’ from his legal team, Watkins admitted it was him in the video – but claimed he was too high on drugs to remember exactly what happened.
‘The most shocking case I have ever seen’: Police say rock star Watkins used his celebrity status to abuse children
Detective Chief Inspector Peter Doyle described the case as ‘the most shocking and harrowing child abuse evidence I have ever seen’.
And he vowed that the hunt to uncover other victims of the abuse would continue.
‘There is no doubt in my mind that Ian Watkins exploited his celebrity status in order to abuse young children,’ he said.
