A woman has come forward claiming to have been a mistress of accused family-killer Chris Watts — and she says they had violent sex.
The woman is reportedly in her 30s and lives about 30 miles from Frederick, Colorado, where Chris lived with his pregnant wife Shanann Watts and their daughters Bella and Celeste at the time of the shocking murders. Chris Watts is currently in custody, charged with nine felonies including three counts of first-degree murder.
The Radar Online report claims that the woman has a striking resemblance to Shanann Watts, who was 15 weeks pregnant when she was killed.
The woman said the affair was casual but that Chris was into violent sex.
“He would put his hands on my throat during intercourse. Now that I know who he is, it gives me the chills! I can’t even think about it,” she told Radar Online.
“But nothing about him alarmed me until he tried to choke me. That freaked me out. He had a rape fantasy. He was very kinky.”
“When we had sex, it was very animalistic. He just zoned out into a different person. He wasn’t the kind of guy who would cuddle and watch a movie.”
The woman said she ended the relationship when Chris stopped taking her out on dates and she felt he was using her for sex, but said she wasn’t alarmed by his behavior that indicated he may have been in a relationship, noticing the he was “always sneaking around.”
She said she didn’t mind because she wasn’t interested in a serious relationship. The mistress also said that he had used a photo of a different man in his Tinder profile, and that he claimed to be separated.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Watts is believed to have had multiple affairs with both men and women. One man told HLN’s Ashleigh Banfield that he’d had a 10-month affair with Watts, who had initially denied that he was married but later admitted it, saying that his marriage was loveless. And according to an arrest affidavit obtained by CrimeOnline, a police investigation found that Watts had been having an affair with a co-worker.
The affidavit also showed that Watts told police that he had told his wife he wanted to initiate a separation on the day she and the girls were killed.
The mistress who spoke to Radar Online said she recognized Watts from news reports about the murders and his arrest, and that it made her feel sick.
“It would have been much easier for him to take me out than wipe out his whole family,” she said.
“It’s a bad thing to say, ‘It could have been me’ — because it wasn’t. It was three beautiful souls.”
