In a tweet posted Wednesday, Bobbette Riales accused the The Ranch and That ‘70s Show actor Danny Masterson of repeated sexual assault. “I stayed quiet long enough,” the actress/model said.
The two appear to have dated, with a wire service red carpet photo identifying Riales as Masterson's girlfriend in 2003. The four other sexual assault allegations against Masterson reportedly took place in the early 2000s. “All I seek is justice and to prevent this from ever happening to anyone else as it has for some time,” Riales wrote.
Netflix parted ways with Masterson on Dec. 5 after an LAPD investigation against the actor resurfaced. “As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” the streaming company announced. Masterson continues to deny the allegations.
Masterson’s first public accuser, Chrissie Carnell-Bixler, responded to Riales' tweet, praising her for her bravery. “He will never do this to another human being ever again,” she wrote.
The LAPD has investigated multiple accusations against Masterson. An LA district attorney's investigation against Masterson has been ongoing for almost a year, but according to HuffPost has been stalled partly because of Masterson's connection to the Church of Scientology. Three of the actor's accusers are also affiliated with Scientology.
