Chris Watts denies gay affair and 'rape fantasy' tryst while he was married to Shanann: 'Nichol was the only one'
During a jailhouse confession last month, Chris Watts addressed rumors about having affairs with men and women
Chris Watts has denied claims he engaged in homosexual activities with other men as he serves three life sentences for the murders of his pregnant wife and their two daughters. Speaking to investigators, Trent Bolte claimed he and then-married Watts were in a sexual relationship for almost a year, the Daily Mail reported.
Around the same time as Bolte, another man, yet to be identified, claimed he had met Watts in rehab and later shared a sexual relationship with him. However, Watts has denied all allegations to investigators.
During an interview last month in a Wisconsin prison, investigators spoke to Watts about Bolte and another woman named Amanda McMahon, before asking him about Nichol Kessinger, his mistress at the time of the murders.
McMahon claimed she met Watts on Tinder and that he acted out a “rape fantasy” with her at her home after they met up in a Chick-fil-A parking lot.
However, Watts told authorities he only cheated on his wife with Kessinger and denied ever meeting McMahon for sex.
The cold-blooded killer strangled his pregnant wife Shanann Watts before driving to an oil field with his children Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, and smothering them with a blanket. After killing his family, he buried his children in oil tanks and buried his wife in a nearby grave. When asked about the possible affairs, Watts said, "[Watts' lawyer] John Walsh had told me about one dude from Wyoming," to which investigators responded "Trent [Bolte]."
"Yeah, that guy," Watts acknowledged. One of the officials then pressed Watts on whether he had ever been with Bolte to which Watts responded, "I've never been with a guy." Authorities then tried to confirm if he had ever wanted to be with a man or fantasized about it. Watts responded in the negative, denying also having had a sexual relationship with someone he met in rehab.
However, Bolte is still maintaining his version of events since opening up about it earlier this month. In response to one of his detractors on Twitter, he wrote, "I didn’t know he was gonna murder his family when I was with him."
According to Bolte, Watts first reached out to him on the MessageMe app and complimented him on his profile image and his lips, authorities learned. He further told agents that Watts had a photo of mountains on his profile and said he was straight. When Bolte asked why he was messaging a homosexual man, Watts allegedly responded by saying, "lol, I don't really know if I'm straight or not."
The duo then reportedly met at Bolte's residence for the first time, where Watts started ripping off his garments. "I performed oral sex on him, he performed oral sex on me, after that there was intercourse and he pretty much panicked and then didn't say much and left," said Bolte.
Bolte said he met with Watts' daughters Bella and Celeste soon after their first encounter. "If you turn out not to be a psycho maybe you can meet them," Watts allegedly told him before making them meet. Furthermore, Bolte's claims that the two spent time together at a remote Wyoming cabin were confirmed by Watts' mother Colleen during a conversation with an agent from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. She told the agent Watts had paid for Bolte's lip injections.
That said, Bolte's claims have been denounced by many after he first came out with his story on Facebook just days after the triple homicide. According to him, he first met Watts in June 2017.
