Stephen Collins is suing his estranged wife, Faye Grant, for $1 million in “future earnings,” alleging he can no longer find work and she’s to blame, recent court documents reveal.
According to a new report, his lawyers say he’s unable to land any gigs after TMZ published a recording of the "7th Heaven" actor allegedly confessing to child molestation.
The 67-year-old says she had no right to record the conversation, which took place during a therapy session. In the tape, he allegedly admits to exposing himself to young girls on multiple occasions.
Faye is legally protected, as it’s permitted by law to secretly record a conversation in the state of California to gather evidence indicating the other person committed a crime.
He also accuses his estranged wife of leaking the material to the media — though she has continually denied doing so. As a result, he believes she is responsible for his inability to find work, and therefore must compensate financially.
