Ugh. This is so horrible.
The NYPD is reportedly investigating 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins for sexual misconduct involving children.
Collins, best known for his role as patriarch Pastor Eric Camden on the long-running WB show, has been involved in a nasty divorce from his wife Faye Grant since 2012.
Just before that, the couple attended a therapy session in which he confessed that he had exposed himself to at least three different girls between the ages of 10 and 13.
In one case, he even made one of the girls touch him inappropriately.
Collins apparently didn’t know that Grant was recording the session as evidence; she had already found out about one of the incidents.
NYPD’s Special Victims Unit now has the audio tape and is currently investigating.
All of this is made even more disturbing by the fact that Collins worked around young actors for so much of his career.
