Stephen Collins‘ estranged wife tried to persuade a witness to make false claims about sexual molestation to authorities, and when the witness refused she retaliated against that witness … this according to Collins' lawyer.
Attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan tells TMZ … the would-be witness will testify in the upcoming divorce trial. Kaplan claims Grant wanted the witness to claim he/she saw Collins molest a girl — not one of the 3 mentioned in the audiotape. Kaplan says the would-be witness saw no such sexual contact, and when that person refused to testify Grant went on the warpath.
A source connected with Collins also tells TMZ … during the divorce trial his lawyer will attempt to paint Grant as a fraud. She claimed in legal docs Collins left her destitute, but the source says she was actually blowing between $ 20K and $ 40K a month on her credit cards and Collins paid the bills.
