The teens, who lived across the street, reportedly told his parents that he went to Watts’ house to smoke marijuana and fell asleep, denying any sexual activity, authorities said, People reported.
The 15-year-old later admitted he and Watts had been having sex since June 2022. The boy revealed the indiscretion to a neighbor he confided in, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The teen also confessed that he and Watts were in love and when he turned 17 years old, Watts ‘was going to divorce her husband and they would get married,’ the document revealed.
Watts’ husband and one of the boys’ parents told authorities their families at one time were ‘very close friends’ to the extent that ‘each house had an open door rule where the family members between both families would come and go out of the other’s residence,’ report said.
The parent further told police it was common for the twins to be at the Watts residence because Watts and her husband had a son who was close in age to the twins.
Watts lives in a Chesapeake home that was bought for $280,000 in July 2012 and is valued at close to $500,000 today.
The boy was reported to authorities as a runaway, months after their relationship was exposed. Police found him nearly three weeks later on July 26 at the home of his lover where he had been hiding.
