Ian Watkins Gay Sex Scandal HOAX!

September 2, 2010

Update October 16, 2010:

The Ian Watkins photos circulating around the net have been faked according to representatives. Here is a press release issued by his representative:

Lost Prophets front man Ian Watkins has recently been the subject of much controversy over
a compromising photo making it’s way around the web. The photo appears to depict Mr.
Watkins engaged in a sexual act with another man. Many blogs, gossip columns and even
some print publications have ran the story.

On Friday 24th the scandalous photograph was revealed to be a fake. The authentic
photograph, taken from a home movie that Ian and his then girlfriend made in May of 2006,
depicts Ian and his gal pal engaged in private sexual acts.

The hoax began to circulate in early August and is still receiving some attention especially on
the Internet.

Representatives for Mr. Watkins have stated that Ian would most likely not seek damages
from publishers who have ran the story so long as they publish an appropriate retraction.
The original and the altered (fake) versions of the photograph are shown below:

[ed-photos cannot be published here but are quite explicit and convincing.]

Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins gay sex tape scandal is it what it appears to be? Well that remains to be seen but you can learn all about this latest drama involving Watkins which includes some pictures and a video too.

According to PerezHilton the lead singer of Lostprophets, Ian Watkins was caught in an alleged gay sex scandal and supposedly the blogger has the photos to prove it. The alleged pictures are of course linked to a site you must be 18 years old to enter. Now given the source of the latest rumor surrounding Watkins I would say take it for what it is worth. However the singer himself did Tweet this message after the story broke.

I love it when a plan comes together…x

I for one have no idea what that means exactly but one can get the message that things sure may not be what they appear to be right? The British singer has had girlfriends like UK DJ Fearne Cotton and Marissa Festa in the past but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. He could still totally be into dudes for all we know.

Since there really doesn’t seem to be any confirmation other than PerezHiton regrading the alleged Ian Watkins gay sex scandal I am really hesitant to believe any of it. I feel like if there was in fact some actual truth to the matter there would be more legitimate sources that would have the dirt on Watkins too. Plus given the cryptic Tweet sent out from Ian it leads me to believe this was clearly some sort of stunt. Yep I call B.S but I would love for anyone to prove me wrong so if you have any information on this rumor regarding the lead singer of Lostprophets please let me know.

In the meantime enjoy the pictures and awesome video of Watkins doing his thing, he really can sing.
