Korn Drummer Speaks About Ian Watkins Case
Asked to comment on Ian Watkins’ child abuse trial, Korn drummer Ray Luzier expressed utter shock over the singer’s actions, dubbing him mentally deranged.
“That’s really sad,” Ray told Radio Futuro (via Blabbermouth). “Obviously, he’s not wired in the head right, or mentally. It’s beyond disgusting to me. I can’t even swallow the fact that that’s going on.”
The drummer elaborated further, “People know that there’s paedophilia and stuff out there, but to take it as far as someone like him and to use his fame to get victims, I don’t even know what to say. I have no comment on that. He has some mental issues that really, really need to be handled immediately, obviously.
” Watkins’ disturbing case shocked the public last week as Lostprophets vocalist pleaded guilty to attempting baby rape, confessing he sexually touched, had oral and full sex, as well as urinated on children and underage teenage girls. Two mothers of abused children were also involved in heinous crimes, abusing their own children and giving Watkins permission for his deeds.
The singer’s ex-girlfriend Joanna Majic recently claimed she’d been trying to warn the authorities about Watkins’ paedophilia for four years, but to no avail. According to the latest info, the police officer involved in the case is now under investigation for “gross misconduct.”
After disbanding in October, Lostprophets members have now condemned the singer, saying his actions will “haunt us for the rest of our lives.” The singer is scheduled to be sentenced on December 18.
