Listen To The Audio Tape Of ‘7th Heaven’ Star Stephen Collins Confessing To Child Molestation
Oh this is very disappointing and depressing news for all you 7th Heaven fans.
Back in November 2012, the LAPD launched an investigation into molestation allegations against Stephen Collins (Rev. Camden). The case unfortunately was closed due to “no verified victims,” suggesting the investigation was prompted by a tip.
Recently, TMZ obtained an auto recording of Collins confessing to his estranged wife, Faye Grant, and their therapist that he molested and exposed himself to at least three young girls.
On the tape, the voice TMZ claims is Collins, is heard saying that he molested an 11-year-old relative of his wife, Marjorie Weinman, several times.
“There was one moment of touching where her hand, I put her hand on my penis,” Collins admits, and also acknowledges that he exposed himself to the girl “a couple of times.”
With the release of the tape, the LAPD officially told TMZ they are working with the NYPD and “re-listening” to the tape and “revisiting” the investigation to see if they “missed anything” back in 2012.
Grant told E! News, “I woke up today to learn that an extremely private recording I handed over to the authorities in 2012 per request in connection with a criminal investigation was recently disseminated to the press. I had no involvement whatsoever with the release of the tape to the media.”
Not only is the auto tape of Collins admittance being released but ET has obtained a document filed as part of the Collins and Grants divorce proceedings about her allegedly learning “for the first time Stephen had been living a secret life.”
“I believe that Stephen used his celebrity status to engender the trust of the families of the children he molested,” Grant’s declaration claims. “I further believe that there have been other victims, but he has thus far only confessed to those three girls.”
The document alleges that Collins admitted that one of the victims lived in Los Angeles, while two others resided in New York. “The two victims in New York were apparently molested over the course of several years, from the ages of 10-14 years old,” Grant claims in the document. “My understanding is that all three of these victims are now over the age of 26.”
Grant, insists in the papers that she had no knowledge of her husbands lewd actions, “Again, I had no knowledge of Stephen’s secret life until January 2012,” the document reads. “I never witnessed anything first-hand that would have given me any indication of what Stephen was doing. After Stephen admitted to molesting the three young girls, I reported his acts to the police in both Los Angeles County and New York City.”
The documents also diagnoses Collins mental state and how Grant pleaded for her husband to seek help, “Stephen’s therapist subsequently disclosed to me that Stephen has narcissistic personality disorder with sociopathic tendencies…I have urged Stephen multiple times to seek proper treatment for pedophilia. I am particularly afraid of what may happen if he does not seek treatment, because he may be working or interacting with children in connection with his employment.” She continues, “I know that he has used a 12-step model for sex addition, and that he was also seeing a ‘sexual dysfunction’ therapist. However, he has refused to seek proper help or hospitalization for his predilection towards children. He has insisted that my concerns are unfounded.”‘
Because of Collins behavior, Grant has received threats from “one of the victim’s husbands.” She says, “I received two letters from a man who identified himself as the husband of one of Stephen’s three aforementioned victims. He berated me for my cowardice in not turning Stephen in to the police. He then called me on the phone and threatened to bring a civil lawsuit against me for Stephen’s assaults.”
Meanwhile, ET has confirmed that Stephen has been released from Seth MacFarlane’s ” film following the allegations.
