Earlier today, recordings of the 67-year-old former 7th Heaven star allegedly admitting to inappropriate acts surfaced online, causing police to launch an official investigation of Collins. In the wake of the child molestation reports, Collins will no longer appear in the upcoming sequel to the hit 2012 comedy Ted, a production source confirms to E! News. Although Collins did not appear in the first flick, he had a small role in Ted 2. His part has since been cut.
In the alleged tapes that were obtained by TMZ Tuesday, Collins is heard recalling past molestation incidents with a therapist and his ex, actress Faye Grant, with whom he's in the midst of divorcing.
