Former Lost Prophets Singer Hid His Phone Where While in Prison?

Ian Watkins, the former vocalist for Lost Prophets who is serving time in a maximum-security prison for 13 counts of child sex offenses, must have really wanted to see his mother. Word got prison guards that Watkins had a cell phone in prison, which is a big no-no, and Watkins said he would give up the phone as long as he could still see his mother who was visiting that day.

The guards agreed and Watkins pulled a small cellphone out of the back of his pants, revealing that he had been hiding the phone inside his anus. According to the prison report, it took Watkins approximately ten seconds to get his phone from, well, ya know. Watkins must serve at least 29 years behind bars for plotting to rape children as young as one-year-old. He recently told the court he was afraid of being attacked in prison.
