The gay escort who claims he had been intimate with Chris Watts spent three hours speaking with FBI agents about his relationship with the Colorado dad killer.
Trent Bolte sat down with agents on August 29 and detailed how Watts first reached out to him on the MessageMe app, saying that the father complimented him on his picture and his lips.
He told the agents that Watts had a photo of the mountains on his profile and said that he was straight, prompting Bolte to ask why he was messaging a gay man.
‘lol, I don’t really know if I’m straight or not,’ said Watts.

Opening up: Trent Bolte spoke with the FBI after claiming he had a sexual relationship with Chris Watts for over three hours (Bolte above in August 29 with FBI agents)
Chats: In the interview he claimed that Watts reached out to him via the MessageMe app and complimented his looks and lips (texts between the pair after they first spoke)
Family: When Bolte asked why he was reaching out since his profile said he was straight, Watts responded: ‘lol, I don’t really know if I’m straight or not’ (Watts above with his wife and daughters)
The two then met for the first time at Bolte’s residence, who said that Watts started ripping off his clothes.
‘I performed oral sex on him, he performed oral sex on me, after that there was intercourse and he pretty much panicked and then didn’t say much and left,’ said Bolte.
Soon after that, Bolte said that he met Watts’ daughters Bella and Celeste.
Bolte said prior to that watts had told him: ‘If you turn out not to be a psycho maybe you can meet them.’
The 28-year-old escort said that he and the married father-of-two, 33, had a ten-month relationship that ended this past spring.
The two would spent time together at a remote Wyoming cabin said Bolte, which his mother Colleen confirmed in her own interview with a Colorado Bureau of Investigation agent.
She also told the agent that Watts had given her son money while they were together, and even paid for Bolte to get lip injections.
Bolte’s story has been questioned by many after he first claimed that he and Watts were together in a Facebook post soon after the murders.
It was that post and his subsequent interview on a national news program that led to police reaching out to Bolte, who said he first met Watts in June of last year.
Unlikely pair: He also said that he met bella and Celeste at one point before the murders, but this was before Watts met mistress Nichol Kessinger (Watts left and Bolte on right)
At the time, Bolte proved to be elusive for police and investigators to lock down, with the young man saying he had just been kicked out of his apartment by his boyfriend after he learned that Bolte had been working as a male escort.
Bolte did however provide contact information for his mother Colleen, who was able to confirm some details of the alleged relationship and share new ones with investigators.
She said that her son ‘admitted he was seeing Watts long before the “horrible crime” occurred’, and that Watts ‘gave him money’.
Bolte told her told his mother that Watts ‘paid him $250, $80, and $60 on separate occasions,’ with Colleen adding that one of the payments was for her son’s ‘lip injections’.
She also said that when she called Bolte back in March of this year while he watching their cabin in Wyoming, he told her that he was with a friend Chris from Colorado for the weekend.
Bolte made waves back in August with the Facebook post that initially caught the eye of investigators.
‘We had relations off and on from last June up until March or April. I found out he was married with kids in February. I didn’t know that when we first met, said Bolte in that post.
He also noted: ‘I can only speak for myself but before this happened, I would’ve 100% told you that Chris isn’t a murderer nor a sociopath. He told me he was the victim of emotional and mental abuse and was stuck in loveless marriage but was so scared to leave because of Bella and Celeste.’
There was not much follow-up to Bolte’s claim however after investigators began to focus in on his mistress at the time of the murders, Nichol Kessinger.
