That ‘70s Show alum Danny Masterson  was accused of sexual assault by multiple women in the early 2000s, and the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly on Friday, March 3, that they are investigating the claims. No charges have been filed against Masterson at this time.

 

“The Los Angeles Police Department Robbery Homicide Division, Sexual Assault Section, is conducting an investigation involving the actor Danny Masterson,” the LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division said in a statement. “Three women have come forward and disclosed that they were sexually assaulted by Masterson during the early 2000s.”

In a lengthy post to his blog, The Underground Bunker, journalist Tony Ortega published court documents that show claims of rape or sodomy allegedly committed by Masterson, 40, on three separate occasions.

According to Ortega, one of the victims first approached King of Queens alum Leah Remini, an outspoken critic of Scientology, when publicity for her new A&E series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, began. (Masterson was born and raised as a Scientologist; his three alleged victims were also practicing members of the controversial religion.) Remini, in turn, encouraged the victim to file a police report.

 

 

“I met with the LAPD. I met with Detective Reyes [of the robbery-homicide division, who was assigned the case], and I told her these victims deserve to be heard,” Remini, 46, told Ortega. “I asked her to do the right thing by these girls, and I told her that the world is watching.”
