EXCLUSIVE: Family of 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins fear he's on the brink of suicide over pedophile claims, as stunned former cast member laments 'he was the glue that held us together'
The family of Stephen Collins fear the 7th Heaven star is on the brink of suicide over shocking allegations he molested several underage girls.
The actor, who played a beloved pastor on the hit family friendly show, has been left distraught after his taped confessions made during a marriage therapy session were made public.
Now those closest to the 67-year-old are deeply concerned the star has hit rock bottom and fear he may harm himself.
'His family by no means condone what he's said to have done, but it doesn't stop them worrying about him,' a close family friend told MailOnline.
'They fear he could take his own life. That's how low he is right now. No one wants to leave him by himself.'
His estranged wife Faye Grant 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 who he may have abused.
'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,' Grant wrote in an email obtained by TMZ.
'I should have followed my gut then, and then again 14 years ago, and kicked your ass to the curb,' she added.
But a source close to Collins told the gossip site that the allegations are 'absolutely untrue,' that he never received that email and Grant never brought these claims up during their contentious divorce proceedings.
According to court papers obtained by MailOnline, Grant is attempting to indemnify herself and the divorce settlement from settlement any civil action stemming from the pediphelia charges.
Ar stake is property worth $13million including over $5 million in real estate and Collins' $100,000 worth of vintage guitars.
On top of that, a Massachusetts woman who worked as a nanny in New York in the 1990s, in the same building as Collins, has come forward to reveal his strange daily visits in pajamas and the 'semi-pornographic novel' he was writing.
The woman named Ilene called into Boston radio station Mix 104.1 Wednesday morning.
The family source says cast and crew of 7th Heaven - the popular long-running family drama which ended in 2007 - are in 'shock' over the bombshell claims.
In an interview with MailOnline, a cast member, who asked not to be identified, said, '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, who famously played Reverend Eric Camden, the virtuous father-of-seven, is currently being investigated for child molestation.
An NYPD official confirmed to MailOnline that they had received a complaint and the Special Victims Squad is investigating.
And 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.
Following the tapes released by TMZ on Tuesday, Collins life and career have been falling apart as 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.
LAPD officers rushed to Tarzana, California, after getting a 911 call about a shot fired inside Collins' house last night. Collins' neighbor, former Playboy model and Baywatch star Donna D'Errico, tweeted just after 8pm PT that the actor shot himself
It turned out to be a false alarm sparked by a member of the media who heard a loud pop
The actor allegedly made a written confession to his now ex-wife Faye Grant in 2012, which sparked the therapy session.
Grant secretly recorded the session under the advisement of her lawyer, who told her it was legal in California to record conversations in order to gather evidence on a person who has committed a violent felony.
And in explosive 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.
Ironically Collins starred in the 1996 Lifetime movie The Babysitter's Seduction in which he played a recently widowed dad who becomes obsessed with his childrens' teenage babysitter, played by Keri Russell.
Devastated Grant also revealed Collins was treated for a sex addiction and was seeing a 'sexual dysfunction' therapist, but he refused to seek proper help or hospitalization for his 'predilection towards children', she said.
"The family feels absolutely betrayed by him. He's not the man they all thought he was and that's incredibly hurtful and confusing,' said the family source.
"With everything that has come to light they fear there could be other victims. There's so much that he has already hidden from everyone he's worked and lived with, they don't know what could come out next. Some are even wondering if he admitted everything he's done on those tapes, or if there's more he's keeping secret.
"The family are mortified and embarrassed. They remain concerned however for Stephen because they now know he has deep seeded issues.”
Yesterday cast and crew of 7th Heaven were said to be reeling over the news.
The family source, who knows several cast members and often visited the 7th Heaven set, said: 'No one had any idea. They had a reunion just last month and everyone loved it.
'There were never any signs Stephen had these issues. No one ever suspected a thing.
'Everyone who has worked with him has said he's amazing and lovely and one of the nicest guys ever.
'It's like the neighbors of the serial killer with bodies buried in the basement who always say, 'He was always such a nice guy'.
'We are all blown away by the revelations.'
Torture hoods used in U.S. prisons
Asphyxia: (1) stopping of the pulse (2) lack of oxygen, (3) excess carbon dioxide in the body that results in unconsciousness and death, (4) caused by interruption of breathing or inadequate oxygen supply.
Revolutionary greetings to all the workers worldwide! The above definitions describe a condition that too often occurs in U.S. torture sites (prisons/slave plantations) across the nation when human beings are suffocated by what is commonly called “spit mask” by torturecrats (prison officials).
Even though the United States allows domestic torture centers inside its borders of 50 states and U.S. territories, this is somehow conspiratorially blocked out of U.S. corporate media outlets — newspapers and especially television.
For most of the public, everyday working-class people have never heard of such a thing as a “spit mask,” never alone even seen one in their lifetime.
Here, for what is probably most likely the first viewing for many, is a photo of the white spit mask as displayed by a torturecrat.
The white square cloth division of the mask covering the lower nostril holes causes one to suffocate.
The black knitted thread division of the mask (at the top of the face and head) is used for masking prisoners. It is pulled back with the torturecrat’s palms flat down on it in such a fashion that the white cloth part is fully blocking the prisoner’s entire face. This allows the torturer to control air flow. In some cases this is used while prisoners are in the torture chair and in other cases while they are shackled and belted in full body restraints.
It is not uncommon for vomiting, epileptic seizures, panic attacks and anxiety attacks to happen to the prisoner. When Tased or beaten, no prisoner is able to identity the torturers because viewing is obstructed by the mask.
The combination of the torture chair with the torture hood means many have suffered from pulmonary embolisms, and some died from blood clots caused by trauma, followed by the immobility in the torture chair. (Prison Legal News, Oct. 14, 2016)
In other cases nationwide, the white mask serves as a torture hood and creates “positional asphyxia” — the restriction of airflow during breathing causing suffocation.
In spite of many deaths across the U.S., there is a media block-out. There is also the complicity of lawyers who never protect the victims, despite their knowledge of systematic abuses across the spectrum. The tortured include minorities, LGBTQ individuals, people with physical and mental disabilities, and all races and religions and atheists.
The reason professional lawyer groups are silent is because prison plantation cases are not profitable since the Prison Litigation Reform Act (signed into law under ex-president William Jefferson Clinton) put a cap on attorneys’ representing prisoners for financial rewards. This act also made it more difficult for prisoners because they must first establish physical injury before any psychological injury can be compensated.
This article does not intend to make a complete generalization that includes the National Lawyers Guild and other peoples’ lawyers groups and individuals in private practice, but for the most part applies to the American Bar Association and definitely law schools. Lawyers in Pennsylvania particularly are the absolute worst nationwide, including Pennsylvania members of the National Lawyers Guild.
One of the most horrendous deaths imaginable, choking to death while gasping to live, brings to mind how Eric Garner was choked to death by torturecrats. There were and still are protests as remembrance; often there are text hashtags, and demonstrations with signs “I can’t breathe” have been national news.
This writer has yet to ever see or hear one corporate news story about being choked to death in U.S. prisons — from Office of Corrections chemical munitions to the torture hood causing asphyxias.
Alleged terrorist suspects were hooded and brought to Guantanamo Bay and other torture sites, so the U.S. operates torture worldwide, as reported in international news about “extraordinary rendition.” All kinds of lawyers, civil rights groups and human rights organizations have petitioned all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court about U.S. detention and torture injustice.
Inside the U.S., Black people in prisons who are the majority in local, state and federal concentration camps — neo-slave plantations — die daily of asphyxia and other state-sponsored deaths.
I write to remind the movement globally that the U.S. and its states did not stop unjust executions after Julius and Ethel Rosenberg , did not stop sadistic torture with Albizu Campos , did not stop assassination with George Jackson at San Quentin prison. Dr. Mumia Abu-Jamal is still under a state-sponsored death-by-incarceration sentence. Sandra Bland was made dead before her day before any court. Of course, Black Lives Matter now, but do Black Lives Matter in prison? For that matter do any lives matter in prison?
So with this article and your viewing of yet another torture device, I ask workers and readers to ponder what asphyxia is like and when does this all end — the senseless wars, the greedy wage exploitation of labor, the daily killings, the endless torture and the perpetual slavery? Or is humanity just in a doomed cycle of death by asphyxia?
 The Rosenbergs were falsely convicted and executed by the U.S. government for allegedly “stealing” atom bomb secrets.
 Albizu Campos was a leader of the Puerto Rican independence movement who was tortured during imprisonment for 26 years and died shortly after being released.
95 percent of the victims of work accidents are men. Because women are cowards, and just want to rule from behind.
Everything you wanted to know about bird sex
Courtship is preferred, but optional when it comes to producing mallard chicks.
A courtship display by a pair of common mergansers. Her head flat against the water is signaling her desire to mate. The male’s erect tail indicates his agreement.
It looked like rough sex. It turns out it was just standard procedure for mallards.
We have a pair of mallards nesting in the swamp behind our house. I’ve been reading about mallards because of behavior I’ve watched.
The vigorous mating, for instance.
Our mallards arrived as a pair. They would have bonded last winter, perhaps locally, since so many spend the winter here.
The drake of this pair stays close to his mate. He stands guard, upright and alert, when she feeds on shore. I’ve always thought he was watching for predators. Then I read a research report on mallards. It said, “males guard paternity … ”
He’s ensuring that all the ducklings, if and when they hatch, carry his genes. His hen mating with another drake could compromise that.
An unpaired drake flew in to our pond, eventually grabbing the hen by her neck and subduing her. The culmination of that frantic minute looked like copulation. That male also was acting on behalf of his genes.
The literature describes three types of mallard copulation. Pair copulation is solicited by both birds, the result of their bonding and desire to nest. (Even with willing partners this can look rough.)
Forced extra-pair copulation is what I saw. The male of the mated pair might then also force copulation. He would be trying to cover a rival’s sperm with his own.
Paired males also will seek to forcefully mate with other hens. It is the male’s way of ensuring that he will breed successfully one way or another. Because of this, any drake’s chance of all ducklings being his are about nine in 10.
Female mallards prefer a mate with bright bill color and plumage. Journal articles reported that females laid larger eggs when they mated with their preferred male. Larger eggs produce heavier ducklings with a better chance of survival.
I could find no explanation of the biological function that produces smaller eggs from unwanted sperm.
Females value energetic courtship activity when making their mate choice. Such behavior by the drake probably signals that he is strong and healthy.
Courtship involves a set of signals by both birds. Watch for bills jabbing, heads bobbing, nodding or shaking. Watch for the female swimming with her head low to the water.
As in so many relationships, male courtship skills are important. And they improve with age.
Wood ducks nest on our pond, too. I’ve watched our hen perform that swimming display. Always close to the male, she swam with bill flat on the pond surface. A few moments later, the wood duck drake bobbed his head four or five times, then mounted her.
Sex is strictly utilitarian for birds. The wood duck drake was atop his hen for a second.
Ducks are among the 3 percent of bird species that have a penis. This is a topic for another day. Most birds mate by simply turning tails aside and bringing together their cloaca, the birds’ all-purpose vent (for waste, sperm, egg).
The mallard penis, incidentally, can be inches in length, and has a corkscrew shape. It is an interesting story, but again, for another day.
