The ex-girlfriend of actor Danny Masterson, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault, says Masterson “repeatedly raped me,” according to a report today by The New York Post’s Page Six.
Bobette Riales made the allegation in a tweet sent out Wednesday night, writing: “I stayed quiet long enough. Danny Masterson repeatedly raped me. All I seek is justice and to prevent this from ever happening to anyone else as it has for some time. My truth will be heard.”
The tweet references Chrissie Bixler, who came forward previously to accuse Masterson of assault. Bixler replied in a tweet to Riales: “You are amazing. I’m so proud of you. He will never do this to another human being ever again. He’s a thief in the night, but he overlooked some incredibly valuable things we still possess. Our voice.”
Riales, an actress, reportedly dated Masterson in the early 2000s. The Post reports that five women have made allegations against Masterson, 41.
“The LAPD told us earlier this year that cops were investigating three rape claims made against Masterson dating back to the early 2000s,” The Post reports. “Like the actor, three of his accusers were members of the Church of Scientology, Tony Ortega previously reported on his website The Underground Bunker.”
Masterson, who broke out on “That ’70s Show,” was fired earlier this month from his role on the Netflix series “The Ranch,” where he appeared along with another “That ’70s Show” alum, Ashton Kutcher.
Masterson, who was also accused of a 2003 rape, released a statement earlier this month in which he said: “Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit. I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused. I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all.”
