Underwear belonging to the dad from a recent Netflix documentary was found in a prison mate's cell, and it's raising some questions. 

According to the Daily Mail, 35-year-old Chris Watts of the Netflix documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door and another inmate, 32-year-old Dylan Tallman, were both disciplined this summer after Watts' underwear and a jar of vaseline were found in Tallman's cell. Watts was then separated from his "brother in spirit" at the Wisconsin prison, where he's serving five life sentences plus 84 years for the heinous crimes committed against his pregnant wife and children. 

To put it bluntly, the Daily Mail says the evidence suggests that Watts and Tallman were having sex in prison. 

Tallman's fiancee, 42-year-old Christa Richello, has now spoken out in an exclusive interview with the publication, insisting that the boys are not lovers. 

"I can definitely prove that my fiance is not gay, and neither is Chris Watts," she said. "And I don't believe that force of circumstance because they were locked up led them to have any sexual contact. Those accusations are just crazy, and I just have to laugh at it." 

"I know both Chris and Dylan and I know their relationship," Richello continued. "They are friends. They are very close but that's all it is." 

Richello plans to marry Tallman once he's released from prison.
