BOMBSHELLS: Sons of Guns Star Stephanie Hayden Ford Opens Up to Dr. Phil in New Interview
Stephanie Hayden Ford, daughter of Sons of Guns star Will Hayden, spoke to Dr. Phil in an interview that aired today.
According to Fox News,
It has been widely reported that the charges stem from accusations made by Hayden’s younger daughter. As Ford shared her story with Dr. Phil she spoke openly about the sexual abuse of a girl who she referred to as her sister.
Ford said her father once came into her bedroom, drunk and forced her shirt off and touched her chest inappropriately.
“He continued to proceed to kiss on my chest. Once that happened I jumped back and he just left and he never touched me again like that,” she said, adding that she was depressed and avoided her father after the incident and carried knives with her.
Ford said another family member was abused by Hayen as well—twice—at the age of 12, and a friend of hers also revealed she had been abused by Hayden and forced to kiss him.
Ford apparently passed out briefly following the interview, apparently emotionally and mentally drained. She regained consciousness before paramedics arrived.
Stephanie also claimed that the original abuse allegations were brought by an assistant who caught Will Hayden abusing his currently 12 year old daughter on a couch. Hayden allegedly threatened to kill the woman and then fired her.
Will Hayden is currently facing numerous charges in two different jurisdictions for the alleged rape and sexual abuse of multiple child victims. Some of the victims are now adults. Due to the fact that Hayden is facing multiple charges in multiple jurisdictions, he is technically unable to bail out, even if he comes up with the hundreds of thousands of dollars required to do so.
Red Jacket Firearms has legally separated itself from Hayden following the abuse allegations.
Discovery cancelled the television show “Sons of Guns” after Hayden was arrested for the second time.
