Paedophile rock star Ian Watkins spoke with a female fan from prison the day after admitting two counts of attempted baby rape and said he was going to issue a statement when he was sentenced saying it had all been "mega lolz".
A transcript of the conversation was read out to a shocked and silent Cardiff Crown Court today as the former Lostprophets frontman was being sentenced .
Christopher Clee QC, prosecuting, told the judge that Watkins had a conversation from Park Prison with a woman named Samantha on November 27.
Watkins denied being a paedophile and expressed exasperation at the way people had reacted to his guilty pleas.
Using text-speak, he said: "I'm going to put out a statement on the 18th just to say it was mega lolz.
"I do not know what everybody is getting so freaked out about."
