Lostprophets singer sexually abused hundreds, claims Doncaster ex-girlfriend

Child sex predator Ian Watkins sexually abused hundreds of young victims, a former girlfriend from Doncaster claims. Joanna Majic, 38, claimed that female fans of the paedophile rocker are hiding the true extent of his prolific child abuse. That is because they are also the mothers of the young children or babies that the former Lostprophets singer preyed upon, she said. Miss Majic, also revealed that she first reported Watkins’ activities to South Wales Police five years ago, but was not taken seriously. Senior police have vowed to continue seeking out other child victims of the singer’s abuse as the investigation into his activities continues. Watkins admitted a string of child-related sex offences at Cardiff Crown Court yesterday, including two attempts at raping a baby. Two unnamed female fans, who were due to stand trial with him, also admitted a series of sex-related offences on the eve of the joint prosecution. Both women, one a 21-year-old from Doncaster, were revealed as the mothers of the baby victims targeted by Watkins. The singer and the two women will be sentenced in Cardiff on December 18.

Miss Majic had an on-off relationship with Watkins from 2006 and observed his gradual downfall through drugs over a four-year period. She said: “I’ve always said to the police, there’s hundreds of victims out there and you’re never going to find them because the mothers are in on it.” If you or somebody you know were subject to abuse please do not hesitate to contact Charles Derham our specialist child abuse solicitor. We will treat any communications with the strictest of confidence.

"I would like to express my profound heartfelt gratitude to Lisa Gafarov for all her hard work and understanding when representing me. She fought passionately for my case for two years.

Within this time, never once did I feel it was about the money for her. She was very considerate and dealt with many personal matters in a caring and professional way. It was a very sensitive case but she put in a lot of hard work and went the extra mile each time. Her wide range of expertise was indispensable during this difficult time. Because of this I trusted all her advice and as a result, this took a lot of pressure off of me.

She managed to reach a very amicable conclusion between the defendants and myself. You don’t know how much your passion impacts the lives of others. For this I am forever grateful. I would recommend your firm a hundred times over."
