Stephen Collins’ family worry that he could be on the brink of suicide after taped confessions of child molestation were made public.
We are wondering why his estranged wife didn’t come forward with the information during their 27-year marriage? She didn’t have an issue with it until he filed for divorce in May 2012?
The actor, who played a beloved pastor on “7th Heaven”, is being investigated after admitting he had sexually molested young girls during a recorded therapy session with his wife and their therapist.
His estranged wife Faye Grant is being slammed for not coming forward with the knowledge. But she claims she handed over the information to police and they did not take action.
Faye is now stating that she had no knowledge of Stephen’s interest in young children sexually until 2012, but he made sickening remarks about their unborn child Kate. She was born in 1989.
Grant is being accused of leaking the audio to the media to help her in their divorce case, but said in a statement, “I woke up today to learn that an extremely private recording I handed over to the authorities in 2012 per their request in connection with a criminal investigation was recently disseminated to the media. I had no involvement whatsoever with the release of the tape to the media.”
Faye has now claimed that Collins even had incestuous thoughts about their only child when she was pregnant.
She says just before giving birth, he told her how glad he was they were having a girl, who they named Kate, instead of a boy because he may have sexually abused him.
Grant said in an email to Collins, “The comment you made just before I gave birth to our daughter when you said you hoped we didn’t have a little boy, because “you just didn’t know if you could keep his little penis out of your mouth” was indication enough that you were sick. I should have followed my gut then, and then again 14 years ago, and kicked your ass to the curb”. Ummm, you think?
In court documents Grant reveals she was ‘sickened’ after her husband allegedly confessed to living a vile ‘secret life’ in which he abused several children.
She claims the actor used his celebrity status to prey on underage girls and ‘engender the trust of the families of the children he molested’ in a decade of abuse.
Grant is attempting to indemnify herself and the divorce settlement from settlement any civil action stemming from the child molestation charges.
Stephen Collins has $13 million including over $5 million in real estate and Collins’ $100,000 worth of vintage guitars.
The cast and crew of “7th Heaven” are in ‘shock’ over the bombshell claims.
In an interview one cast member that asked not to be identified stated, “I’m very confused right now. Knowing Stephen the way I do, I find it hard to put this together. He wasn’t that guy. He wasn’t someone with secrets and angst. He was always very present with us. Fun and teasing. All we did is laugh all day long at work and a lot of it was because of him. He’s not that guy to me.
“He took care of me and all of us during those years. He really was a father figure. Taught us to read music a little bit and would make up songs for any occasion for us. He was our glue that held us together. Our rock.
“We all had dinner together a few months ago. If this is true, it’s disturbing because there was no outside appearance of problems. He never did anything sneaky when I knew him and I saw him every day. It must be buried in him. I wish him the best of luck to make it through this. I hope he goes to rehab and comes out the same role model rock star that we know him as.”
Collins is currently being investigated for child molestation. They received a complaint and the Special Victims Squad is investigating.
The LAPD is also reviewing their own 2012 investigation into Collins, and will be collaborating with New York authorities.
Law enforcement in California received the therapy session recordings two years ago but closed their case after finding ‘no verified victim’.
In the recorded therapy session, Collins seemingly admits that he exposed himself to several young girls between the ages of 10 and 13 in both Los Angeles and New York. Here is the NSFW audio recording.
Collins’ career is now falling apart. He resigned from his position on the Screen Actors Guild board and was fired from the film Ted 2. Reruns of 7th Heaven are not being broadcast and he will no longer appear on the hit TV show Scandal.
