0 ‘Sons of Guns’ star William Hayden facing new rape accusations from older daughter Stephanie Ford
Another one of William Hayden's daughters is speaking out against the "Sons of Guns" star, saying she was also raped by her father as a child.
After Hayden's 12-year-old daughter told police she was "orally and vaginally raped" by the gun shop owner, his older daughter, Stephanie Ford, has come forward to say she also suffered sexual abuse, www.tmz.com/2014/09/07/sons-of-guns-sexual-abuse-will-hayden
Ford, who starred alongside her father on the nowcanceled Discovery Channel series as Stephanie Hayden, is now reportedly going to police to aid in Hayden’s prosecution, despite coming to his defense last month when the first charges of child molestation were brought against him.
Ford is recanting her initial statement of support, according to the gossip site.
"There was never any impropriety in our home," www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/sons-guns-star-will in early August. "He was and is a good father."
Now Hayden's oldest daughter is singing a different tune. Ford will reportedly meet with investigators in Baton Rouge, La., next week to provide details of the alleged abuse she suffered as a child.
Her husband, Kris Ford, also recently took to his Facebook page to address the situation — sharing a poem that has since been taken down from his page, www.tmz.com/2014/09/07/sons-of-guns-sexual-abuse-will-hayden
“You fooled with my wife when she was young. Sucking and groping, do you remember what was done?" he apparently wrote.
But an attorney for Hayden claims Ford’s charges against her father are coming with an agenda.
“After 45 shows and 20 years, this is the first I've heard of it,” www.tmz.com/2014/09/07/sons-of-guns-sexual-abuse-will-hayden
“Her complaints arose only after her income from the show and (gun) shop stopped. She's still Will's daughter and he loves her."
At the time of his arrest in early August, Hayden, 44, claimed that the accusations against him were false and coming from a scorned ex-girlfriend, his daughter's mother, who went to police in retaliation for their breakup.
But weeks later police arrested the Discovery Channel star on charges of aggravated rape of a child after the girl in question came forward with details.
His 12-year-old daughter told authorities she was raped "almost daily," but kept quiet because he threatened her, according to www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/sons-guns-star-will
"Sons of Guns" was quickly axed from the network in the wake of the charges brought against its star.
"Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of 'Sons of Guns' and cancel the series," a Discovery Channel rep told TMZ on Aug. 27.
