ON TRIAL: Watkins ex Joanne Mjadzelics BI­SEX­UAL ac­tress Michelle Ro­driguez got a pleas­ant eye­ful on the beach this week. star is on a sun­shine hol­i­day in Mex­ico and seemed de­lighted when one of her pals de­cided to get her boobs out.

Latino hot­tie Michelle, 36 ( who pre­vi­ously dated Brit su­per­model Cara Delev­ingne, 22, was grin­ning from ear to ear as she frol­icked in the sun with her mates. An on­looker revealed: “Michelle’s friend cer­tainly had a crack­ing pair of as­sets.

“No-one was in­ter­ested in the view of the white sand and clear blue sea af­ter that!

“It was hard to look at any­thing else.” A FOR­MER lover of jailed pae­dophile rock star Ian Watkins sent him child abuse im­ages, a court heard yes­ter­day.

Joanne Mjadzelics, 39, sent the Lost­prophets singer five pic­tures from her mo­bile phone de­pict­ing the sex­ual abuse of young chil­dren along­side per­verted mes­sages to the mu­si­cian. She later added: “You get the pixs? I have more.” Cardiff Crown Court heard that Mjadzelics sent the im­ages and mes­sages to Watkins – jailed for 35 years for try­ing to rape a baby – in Septem­ber 2011.

Mjadzelics in­sisted she was try­ing to trap her for­mer lover and bring him to jus­tice as the po­lice “did noth­ing” when she re­ported it to them.

The court heard de­tails of what Mjadzelics said to de­tec­tives in a se­ries of in­ter­views fol­low­ing her ar­rest in Jan­uary 2013.

She claimed Watkins had forced her to sign a gag­ging or­der, to stop her re­veal­ing his se­crets.

Po­lice took Mjadzelics through tran­scripts of on­line chat they found on Watkins’ com­puter, in which they dis­cussed the kid­nap, rape and killing of young girls.

Watkins also talked of get­ting Mjadzelics preg­nant, so he could rape their baby.

Asked about the on­line chat, Mjadzelics told de­tec­tives: “I don’t re­mem­ber. I don’t have any ex­pla­na­tion for what’s said or what’s go­ing through my mind when I said it.”

She told of­fi­cers she re­ported the singer to the po­lice in Fe­bru­ary 2012 and next saw him the fol­low­ing April.

She added: “Noth­ing had been done about it, so I knew I needed to do some­thing.”

Mjadzelics said she needed Watkins to “trust her” and “get ev­i­dence”.

“The only time I con­tacted him was to try and trap him and I had to go that far,” she told po­lice.

Ju­rors pre­vi­ously heard Watkins and Mjadzelics made a sex tape in a Cardiff ho­tel where they shared his fan­tasies of child abuse and death.

The de­fen­dant, of Don­caster, South Yorks, de­nies four charges of pos­sess­ing in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren, two charges of dis­tribut­ing in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren and one charge of en­cour­ag­ing Watkins to send her an in­de­cent im­age of a child, which are al­leged to have taken place from May to Septem­ber 2011.

Mjadzelics told cops she’d taken co­caine with Watkins but re­alised the con­ver­sa­tions with him were wrong.

Trial continues.
