Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins remanded in custody, accused of conspiring to rape 1-year-old girl
Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been remanded in custody after appearing at Cardiff magistrates' court to face child sex abuse allegations.
The Welsh rock star, whose band has sold over 3.5 million albums, is alleged to have conspired with a woman to rape a one-year-old girl, the court heard.
He also stands accused of two incidents of conspiring to engage in sexual touching with two young children; possessing, making and distributing indecent images; and possessing “extreme” animal pornography.
Ian Watkins, the lead singer of Welsh rock band Lostprophets, has been charged with sexual offences against children, police have confirmed.
The 35-year-old, from Pontypridd, has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13, and possession/distribution of indecent images of children.
Two women aged 20 and 24, from Doncaster and Bedford respectively, have been charged with similar offences, South Wales police said. All three are due to appear in court.
Police said they were naming the man as Mr Watkins ‘in order to assist their investigation’.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Peter Doyle said: ‘Specially-trained staff are available to speak to anyone with concerns or information regarding this investigation and a dedicated telephone number has been set up.
‘I want to encourage anyone who has any concerns or information which they think may be relevant to contact us.’
DI Doyle added: ‘Safeguarding children involved in such cases is always a high priority and as such measures have already been taken.’
Anyone with any information concerning the investigation is asked to contact the Operation Globe incident room on 0800 056 0154 or the NSPCC on 0800 389 5347.
And now having looked at R1 link, I have to take that back - at least, H (the "gay" one) hasn't been filmed with a cock in his mouth...
If he has, that's one sex tape I really want to see. Especially if it involved his bandmate Lee.
This Lostprophets guy is the one with the cock in his mouth, and is wanted for child abuse.
r9, from the man himself on there:
Pretty sure you've always wanted to see me naked.. Well.. I'm feeling pretty adventurous today so go to datelink3(dot)com (switch [dot] with .) then sign up and find my profile under the username 'lolsummer69'. I hid my face in the pictures. but I want you to guess who I am and then hit me up on Facebook lol. Good luck.
r9, just give us a link to the page, or post the comments here. Jesus.
I hope they put that freak away for good.
Speaking of freak - check out Ian Watkins' Motherless site. Yikes.
At one point, he had a restraining order against her, and he has spent time w/ her so keep that in mind before reading the rest of this comment. The day before he was arrested, sex videos of him were leaked. I'm talking THE DAY BEFORE. Any website pertaining to him was having cryptic comments alluding to his recent charges. Now before this all went down, as far back as '08, she would comment, an UNGODLY amount on any an all websites about him. Random comments to prove that she's associated w/him. I mean literally pissed all over them. A gossip site called Who's dated Who, (Ian's page) albeit a total trash site, when read all the way through, sheds some light on her. And trust, her twitter is the epitome of what someone is like when off their psych meds. And to say it took 2yrs to get evidence is ridiculous! Pedophiles don't go dormant. They progress. They only get worse. Can't believe the police would allow a pedophile to just keep going on for yrs so they can get just 'enough' evidence? Come on. Lol Not saying the guys innocent, but something just doesn't look right.
Wow @ r16.
Is that him getting fisted?
Well, the nut is committed, I'll say that for him.
But the term, "tighter than a two year old," is meant to be taken as an outrageous joke, not a literal challenge to beat.
Watkins has applied for permission to appeal his 35-year sentence:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
