Chris Watts appears to have a gay lover or at least according to a man who says he engaged in an ongoing sexual relationship with Watt’s for nearly a year.
Watts was charged with murdering his pregnant wife and two kids in Frederick, Colorado.
He buried his wife’s body in a shallow grave at his former boss’s yard, and his two daughter’s bodies were discovered submerged in crude oil drums nearby.
Watts managed to play the victim and made public pleas for the return of his family. He told police he killed his wife after she strangled their daughter because he told her he wanted a divorce.
He claims that they met on MeetMe a dating app and soon began an “instant” sexual relationship. “He reached out to me and messaged me,” the man alleged in the interview. “It was small talk. He told me his age. He had two daughters. He told me he was looking for a relationship in the long run.”
“I asked why his profile said straight. He said he was not out and not ready to be out as far as sexuality.”
Watts’s and this man maintained a relationship for approximately 10 months. “We had many conversations,” he said. “I asked him to make sure he’s not bisexual because he had two children. He told me he didn’t know.”
“At that moment he was attracted to me as a male.”
The unidentified man explained that in the beginning, Watt’s lied and claimed he was single. As the relationship progressed he admitted he was married, but that he and his wife “didn’t have sex anymore.”
“I asked why he lied to me. He told me he knew he wouldn’t have a chance with me if he told me he was married. He told me what I wanted to hear. He knew I had good morals.”
The man further stated that Watts explained that his wife was an abusive partner and their marriage was miserable.
“He told me his wife was verbally and emotionally abusive,” he alleges. “He told me he didn’t love her. She didn’t love him. I knew something was wrong at home. If nothing was wrong, he wouldn’t have pursued me.”
“I could see in his eyes he was very unhappy.”
When asked if he thought Chris had committed the crime, he responded, “no and yes.”
“You never really know what someone is capable of and the way he portrayed himself as the victim and made me feel sympathy for him,” he said. “Sociopath’s can easily lead to different lives and different emotions.”
“I hope he gets convicted and I hope he stays in prison for the rest of his life.”
