Peaches Geldof has spoken of her disgust for Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins after he pleaded guilty to child sex charges
Peaches Geldof has spoken of her disgust for Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins, after he pleaded guilty to attempting to rape a fan's 11-month-old baby son.
The mother-of-two posted a series of tweets about the disgraced rocker, who has also admitted to 10 other child sex offences but pleaded not-guilty to the rape of an under 13 at Cardiff Crown Court this week.
Peaches Geldof took to Twitter to vent her anger about the singer, writing: "As a mother of two babies all I can think of as I read the stories is how utterly traumatised those babies must have been and how he has robbed them of their childhoods for his own, sick twisted pleasure."
There is a court order in place banning the press from naming 'Woman A' and 'Woman B' who "sexually abused their own children" and made them available to Watkins for him to abuse.
But Peaches, 24, feels they should be named and shamed, she tweeted: "The papers MUST name 'woman A and B' who offered up their own babies to this monster in the hopes of being close to their (majorly talentless) musical hero with a backward glance, as they are equal in their monstrosity."
The socialite added: "Just how far the cult of celebrity and super fandom has come when grown women are passing their kids around. I hate the world sometimes."
HMV have reportedly stopped selling Lostprophets' music both in store and online.
A company spokesman has told NME staff have been instructed to remove all of their records from shelves in all 140 stores nationwide.
