The divorce papers are out! Faye Grant and Stephen Collins’ divorce papers surfaced on Oct. 7, following the release of audio where the ‘7th Heaven’ actor allegedly admits to molesting underage girls. In the papers, Faye reveals how ‘disgusted’ she was after her husband ‘admitted that he had sexually molested three underage girls.’
Actress Faye Grant, 57, recorded her husband Stephen Collins, 67, in 2012 during a therapy session admitting to molesting multiple underage girls. However, now that the audio has leaked, both NYPD and LAPD are investigating, and Faye has spoken out in an official statement, as well as legal documents.
Stephen Collin’s Confession
On January 19, 2012, just a month after Faye and Stephen separated following 27 years of marriage, she learned he “had been living a secret life,” the papers obtained by TMZ state.
“In the presence of his therapist, Stephen admitted that he has engaged in a long term pattern of sexually abusing minor children, including sexually molesting three young girls over a decade ago,” she wrote. “Stephen’s therapist subsequently disclosed to me that Stephen has narcissistic personality disorder with sociopathic tendencies. I believe that Stephen used his celebrity status to engender the trust of the families of the children he molested. I further believe that there have been other victims, but he has thus far only confessed to those three girls.”
She went on to admit that the husband of one of Stephen’s victims called her and berated her for not going to the police. After his admission, she reported the acts to both LA County police and NYPD/ She believes all victims are now over the age of 26, and were from the ages of 10-14 when the incidents occurred.
Stephen’s Wife Speaks Out
“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 press,” Faye told E! News. “I had no involvement whatsoever with the release of the tape to the media.”
This comes just hours after TMZ released the audio tape where a man (believed to be Stephen) reveals a string of incidents to his wife at the time and therapist in 2012. In the audio recording, which the 7th Heaven actor was unaware of, he confesses to inappropriate behavior with multiple underage girls — from the ages of 11, 12, and 13.
It is legal in California to secretly record conversations in an effort to gather evidence if the person is believed to have committed a felony.
