In October 2014, the New York City Police Department began to investigate Collins after an audio tape leaked to the media revealed a male voice-purported to be that of Collins-admitting to past sexual abuse of a minor. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson stated Collins had been investigated by the department in 2012 after receiving a claim from 40 years earlier regarding sexual abuse. The LAPD further stated their investigation did not allow them to "substantiate the allegation". In a December 2014 interview with People magazine, Collins admitted he had "inappropriate sexual conduct with three female minors" in 1973, 1982 and 1994.
