****File Photos*** STEPHEN COLLINS ADMITS SEX ABUSE Troubled actor STEPHEN COLLINS has confessed the molestation claims against him are true. The former 7th Heaven star hit headlines in October (14) when audio footage, in which he apparently confesses to inappropriately touching young girls, surfaced online. The recording was made without his knowledge by his estranged wife Faye Grant during a therapy session in 2012. Collins remained silent on the allegations but has now confessed to People magazine in a lengthy essay that he had inappropriate sexual contact with three female minors between 1973 and 1994.

He adds he has only apologised to one of his victims, writing, "I did have an opportunity to do so with one of the women, 15 years later. I apologised and she was extraordinarily gracious...

The full statement will be published in People magazine on Friday (19Dec14). On the same day, Collins will be interviewed by U.S. news anchor Katie Couric and it will be streamed on Yahoo.com.
