One victim accuses LAPD of being compromised by its relationship to the Church of Scientology, says detective told her investigation already ‘ruined’

 

 
By Tony Ortega

 
The Underground Bunker has obtained documents which show that the Los Angeles Police Department has been investigating Scientology celebrity and That ’70s Show actor Danny Masterson in at least three alleged cases of rape or sodomy of women who were also Scientologists and who claim they were pressured by the Church of Scientology not to contact police or go public with their accusations.

We want to emphasize that no charges have been filed against Masterson, whose attorney Marty Singer said that he had not heard about an investigation against the actor. When we contacted the LAPD, we were asked to send an email inquiry to Chief Charlie Beck, and he has not responded to a lengthy message we sent him yesterday. We sent a message to Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw asking for a church statement, but have heard nothing. Masterson’s publicist, Jenni Weinman, said she wanted to take our call yesterday, but then did not get back to us.

One person we did hear from is actress Leah Remini, whose recent A&E series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, was a key reason that the women came forward.

Before Remini’s series even began airing in November, there was so much publicity about it she and her co-star, former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder, began hearing from people who had never previously come forward about allegedly being victimized by the church. One of them told Remini about her claim of being attacked by Masterson.

Remini tells us that she said to the woman, who we’re calling Victim A, that it was time for people to take action, and she encouraged Victim A to file a police report.

When she did, Remini then got personally involved in the investigation, which soon grew when two additional women were added to it.

One of those women, Victim B, had filed a report with the LAPD in 2004 after her rape had occurred in 2003. But that investigation was closed when witnesses — who were Scientologists — contradicted the victim’s testimony.

As a result of Victim A coming forward, the LAPD contacted Victim B and reopened her case, with Remini’s encouragement.

“I met with the LAPD. I met with Detective Reyes, and I told her these victims deserve to be heard,” Remini says. “I pointed out to her that there was a framed picture of a Scientologist on their wall, actor Michael Peña. Do you know what that says to a young Scientologist who comes here to seek justice? My experience with the LAPD has not been good. I asked her to do the right thing by these girls, and I told her that the world is watching.”

But after several months, Victim A became increasingly frustrated with the LAPD’s investigation, and on February 22, she wrote a lengthy and detailed letter to LAPD Capt. William Hayes and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, spelling out what she claimed were signs that the LAPD has been compromised by the Church of Scientology.

In her message, Victim A described the background of her case: That she had been in a relationship with Danny Masterson, but he had allegedly anally raped and injured her while she was unconscious in an incident that occurred in December 2001. And that she had never previously reported the rape to police because, like Masterson, she was a Scientologist, and Scientology officials told her not to go to the police and then had punished her for being victimized.

“They threatened me that if I ever told anyone or reported him to the police that I would be declared a ‘suppressive person’ and lose everything and everyone,” she said in her message to Chief Beck. “Then they put me on a massive ethics program as punishment. My rapist was not punished at all. They didn’t even call him to talk about it. I ended up breaking up with him two months later.”

Only recently, she wrote, did she learn of another person who had been attacked by Masterson — Victim B — and then about another victim who also came forward, Victim C.

In November, Victim A made a police report in her local city (she no longer lives in California, where the alleged rape took place). That police department referred the case to the LAPD’s Hollywood station on Wilcox Avenue, but it was then assigned to Detective Esther Reyes of the Robbery-Homicide Division.

“I was told that my report was transferred out of the Wilcox location into downtown due to known leaks within the Hollywood division when I received a phone call from Detective Reyes later that day…She warned me that I am not to speak to any other officer or anyone claiming to be an officer,” Victim A wrote to the LAPD chief.

She was told by Reyes that Victim B’s case, which had originally been investigated by the LAPD in 2004, had been officially reopened, and that Victim C had also filed an official report.

Again, from the Feb. 22 letter: “She told me that she has taken our police reports out of the LAPD computers so that no one could see them. She said she had them in a vault that only she and her captain could access. She told me this was done to safeguard the case as she agreed that their [sic] are leaks in the LAPD and that some LAPD officers are very friendly with the church of Scientology.”

In January, Reyes and another officer flew to Victim A’s location and took her statement.

Reyes asked the victims to make controlled phone calls to try and get Masterson and others to talk about the alleged crimes. The victims were each assigned phone numbers that they could give out so that if Masterson or other witnesses called it, the calls would be automatically recorded by the LAPD.

Victim A used her assigned phone number to call two Church of Scientology “ethics officers” as well as Masterson’s publicist, Jenni Weinman. She was unable to get Masterson himself to call the number.

In her email to the police chief, Victim A complained that Det. Reyes never gave her much guidance on the phone calls, except to tell her that it would be acceptable if she lied during the conversations.

“Reyes told me many times that the DA says that if we fail the recorded phone calls then Reyes would have to find other victims independently of me and the other known victims,” she wrote.

But besides the phone calls, there were witnesses to the incidents, and although Reyes said they would be interviewed, they have not been interviewed at this point.

Victim A also explained in her message that Victim B was assigned her own phone number, but when she looked up the number on a web search, she found that it returned results like “Do not call this number. It is a police sting number.” Reyes had apparently made a mistake, assigning Victim B a phone number that had previously been used in another case.

Victim A wrote that Reyes continued to put pressure on her to get better information in her recorded phone calls, and that time was running out.

“She suggested I up the heat on the publicist. Not knowing what that meant, and being under tremendous pressure to not fail Reyes or the case, I gave the publicist an ultimatum. I told the publicist that if Danny doesn’t do the right thing and apologize to me then I would back [Victim B] up and go public as well.”

Victim A wrote that Reyes called this a mistake, and told her that she would have extended the time on the phone number, which Victim A says Reyes did not make clear earlier.

“Reyes then accused me of ruining the calls with my ultimatum [to the publicist]….So instead of Reyes thanking me for spending the past month constantly making heart-wrenching calls to truly horrible people, she blamed me for ruining this part of the case.”

Since the victims started making the recorded calls, witnesses to the incidents have begun flying to Los Angeles in recent days. “[Masterson’s] people are collecting the witnesses to get them on the same page. I asked [Reyes] why she won’t get their official statement before they are compromised. She told me again that she is looking for other victims…”

Victim A related that a couple of weeks earlier, Reyes had said something to her that now seemed to be prescient. “Reyes totally out of the blue told me that at any time I can walk away from the case. She told me she would not be mad at me. No one would be mad at me. She would totally understand. It felt like she wanted me to walk away.”

After telling her it would be OK to walk away, now Det. Reyes told her that she had “ruined” the case with her recorded phone call to Masterson’s publicist.

“Last night’s phone call with her devastated me. I cannot believe an SVU detective would speak so unprofessionally and so cruelly to a sexual assault survivor. To coldly blame the victim for ruining the case. Knowing that would be a trigger for me as the church of Scientology blamed me for getting raped.”

After the upsetting phone call, Victim A told Reyes that she wanted a copy of her police report. Reyes had previously refused, but this time sent Victim A the initial page of her report. Victim A says in her email to the chief that it shocked her to see the report. Instead of a rape investigation, the charge was listed as sodomy, which carries a lesser potential penalty, and the description of the incident was poorly written and inaccurate. Victim A has tried to get the rest of the report, and so far has been unable to.

According to the LAPD report itself, Victim A claimed that she was attacked and injured while she was unconscious: “Victim and suspect lived together for 6 years, but were not married. Vict went to bed and when she woke up and was bleeding from her anus. Vict confronted the suspect, he laug[h]ed at her and told her he had sex with her in her anus.”

 

[From Victim A’s police report, showing that the LAPD is handling it as a sodomy case.]

 
Victim A finished her lengthy message to Chief Beck with an appeal to save the case from Det. Reyes’ bungling.

“You have a serial rapist on your hands with god knows how many victims and how many future victims, and the church of Scientology has known about it, threatened us, silenced us, and covered it all up. I am begging the LAPD for a fair and honest investigation. I am begging you all to do the right thing. I am begging for your help.”

The Underground Bunker has spoken to a witness of one of the incidents. He’s no longer a Scientologist, but in 2003 he was a member of the church and attended the party at Danny Masterson’s house where Victim B claims she was attacked.

“We were all good friends. I was at Danny’s for a party one night and he was DJing. [Victim B] showed up at some point,” the witness tells us.

“I remember that she was sober. She hadn’t been drinking. But then Danny made her a drink. Later, from the backyard I heard Danny say, [Victim B]’s going in the pool! And yeah, he threw her into the pool.”

The witness went outside to see what had happened. Victim B was in the water along with two other women. “[Victim B] had all her clothes on — I remember she was wearing a black halter top and black jeans. You know, to tell you the truth I felt kind of sorry for her and I resented Danny for doing it. But she said she was OK.”

He says Victim B came out of the pool, went to a patio chair, and curled up in a ball. Someone wrapped a towel around her.

“Danny, at some point, said to her, ‘Hey, let me take you upstairs,’ and I said, ‘Whoa.’ But Danny said, ‘No, no, I’d never do that. She’s my homie.'”

Later, the witness says he was in the living room as the party had begun to fizzle out. And that’s when he heard a commotion coming from upstairs, where Danny’s bedroom was.

“I saw [Victim B], she was coming toward me, her hair was still drying. She looked terrified. And she said, ‘Oh my God, Danny just raped me.’ She was freaking out and crying.”

According to the LAPD police report of Victim B’s incident, she is alleging that Masterson choked her when she objected to being sexually assaulted by him. “SUSP (acquaintance) sexually assaulted the victim while she was passed out. The victim woke up while the suspect was having sex with her and struggled with him. The suspect choked the victim until she passed out,” the document reads.

 

[From Victim B’s police report, with her description of being choked.]

 
The witness says that everyone at the party were Scientologists, and after Victim B emerged from Masterson’s room they immediately began trying to create the impression that nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

“[Victim B] was in the kitchen freaking out, and I was really concerned. But people were saying no, Danny didn’t do anything, she’s fine. She’s just had too much to drink. There was a commotion as they tried to calm her down and lead her upstairs. Someone convinced her to go up to Danny’s room,” he remembers. “Somebody said to me, she’s going to stay here and sleep it off. Then I left.”

A day or two later, he says, he was called in to Scientology’s Hollywood Celebrity Centre where an ethics officer spoke to him about about the incident.

“I was told in no uncertain terms by the ethics officer that [Victim B] had too much to drink and Danny had done nothing wrong. He said she was being ‘handled.’ And I remember thinking, OK, but what’s happening to Danny?”

The witness says he was told by Victim B that she had given his phone number to Detective Reyes when the investigation began last fall, but he hasn’t been contacted by the LAPD.

Danny Masterson is mostly known for his part on That ’70s Show, which ran from 1998 to 2006, and for helping to get one of his costars, Laura Prepon, into Scientology. Masterson himself grew up in Scientology and was doing television commercials by a very young age.

Like most Scientology celebrities, he rarely talks about his involvement in the church, but then suddenly he talked about it rather openly in 2015 to Paper magazine. “I’ve never been given a hard time my entire life about my belief system or my philosophy in life. Literally never once in 38 years,” he said. “If people start like asking questions in a way where I feel like they have an ulterior motive, I’m just like, ‘Dude, just go buy a fucking book and read it and decide for your fucking self what it means’….I work, I have a family and I’m a spiritual being who likes to understand why things happen in the world and want to learn more so that I can have them not affect me adversely. So if that’s weird, then, well, you can go fuck yourself.”

While the LAPD’s investigation of Masterson was going on, news emerged that his wife, Bijou Phillips — the Almost Famous actress and daughter of musician John Phillips — needs a kidney transplant, which Masterson said he is optimistic that she’ll receive.

Masterson is currently producing and starring in a Netflix series, The Ranch, with his That ’70s Show costar Ashton Kutcher. Its second season is expected to be coming in the next couple of months.

We asked Leah Remini for her thoughts on where the LAPD investigation has gone after she encouraged Det. Reyes to pursue the case.

“As more people come forward and are courageous, it’s going to force law enforcement to do its job. Mike Rinder and I will make it our business to follow this story very closely and make it known publicly.”

 
UPDATE, 3:30 PM: Now that this story is getting picked up all over the place, two interesting statements have been made. First, by the LAPD, which essentially confirms our story:

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

Danny Masterson has also put out a statement, through his representative, Jenni Weinman, who said she was interested in speaking with us yesterday and then never got back to us. We confirmed with one of the websites jumping on this story that it was Weinman who gave them this statement but for some reason did not want to have her name attached to it:

We are aware of the accuser’s 16-year-old allegations. It was only after she was in contact with Leah Remini that she made allegations of sexual assault by Mr. Masterson. The alleged incident occurred in the middle of their 6 year relationship, after which she continued to be his longtime girlfriend. Significantly, during their long relationship she made numerous inconsistent claims that she was previously raped by at least 3 other famous actors and musicians. When Danny ended the relationship she continued to pursue him, even making threats to beat up his current wife Bijou Phillips unless she left him. In fact, we are informed by the Church that the only demand the accuser made of the Church after Danny broke up with her was asking for their help to intervene so the breakup would not be permanent. We are aware also that approximately 14 years ago a woman referred to in the blog made allegations of sexual assault and that the LADP interviewed numerous witnesses and determined the claim had no merit. Based on reading the anti-Scientology blog that posted this story, these false allegations appear to be motivated to boost Leah Remini’s anti-Scientology television series since the accuser only came forward after connecting with Leah Remini.

Now, we’ll tell you what Weinman isn’t saying to those websites running this statement and that they should be interested in knowing: Jenni Weinman is listed as a witness to the sexual assault of Victim B on the second page of her police report.

 

 
We confirmed with the witness we interviewed for our story that it was Jenni Weinman, in fact, who brought Victim B to the party at Masterson’s house the night she alleges that she was raped.

If Jenni Weinman is going to put out statements about the victims in these assaults, she really ought to identify herself, and also disclose that she was, in fact, a witness in the investigation.

 
UPDATE, 4:30 PM: Gary Morehead, a former Scientology security official, reminded us that before he was known as “DJ Mom Jeans” Danny Masterson went by the charming stage name of “DJ Donkey Punch.” Gary even had still in his possession a DJ Donkey Punch party pass that he was given for a 2001 appearance by Masterson.

We’ll just post here the Wiktionary definition of Donkey Punch: “The Donkey Punch is a relatively simple maneuver. When engaged in anal sex from behind, simply punch your partner in the back of the neck so that the sphincter clenches up.”

        There you are! Been thinking about you today all day and what your reaction to this story would be.

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          I think that Danny Fucking Masterson is a shit sausage wrapped in human skin casing and the CoS can keep him.

          I was out of town for work and preoccupied all day. Didn’t even have time to check the Bunker till my plane was on the tarmac a few hours ago headed for home. Figures a big story like this breaks when I’m adulting and can’t be glued to the internet all day.

          I feel for the victims, and I’m so glad Leah not only inspired and emboldened them to break their silence, but has stood by them thru the process. I’d seen allegations on social media several months back and was horrified. I sincerely hope these women find closure, compassion, and justice. And that Jenni goes down as an accomplice. I’ll be watching social media to see how his scilon clique reacts. Are they gonna be Paul Ryan, or are they gonna be John McCain?

          • Missionary Kid

            Glad you’re safe at home. The person who will know about the Hollywood PR effort by $cientology is Spanky Taylor. I know some people who know some people who know her. I’ll try to find out what’s up, but it’ll take a day or so.

              Thx for the well-wishes, MK. Can’t wait to hear what you find out…

              Thanks for the updates, MK.

            • Missionary Kid

              I heard back from one of the intermediaries, and they said it’s too early to take the pulse of Hollywood reaction. I’ll try again Monday.

              Thanks for that!

          • Frodis73

            I figured work had you tied up. I know we have both discussed hating him, even w/out the scientology baggage, so I knew you’d be thrilled to find out his secret is out of the bag. So many good things will come out of Leah’s show. I am so proud of her.
            I am also curious to see how his circle reacts, so keep us posted. Very interested to see how Ashton deals with this as he has done a lot in this area.

      Trump & CO$ gigs are the only kind she is going to be able to get from now on, so she better book as many as she can before they both blow up in her face. How does this Boykin dolt not want to distance himself from the poster girl for the gay-hating LRH? SMH

            This ranks right up there with Kuba Ka trying to sell tickets to his birthday party at the Celebrity Centre for $10,000. Sorry, Joy, Kuba and all you delusional clams, but my check will not be in the mail 🙁

            • Frodis73

              Omg, I missed that. Who is he kidding? Nobody even knows who he is!! I would not pay $10 to see his plastic ass!! 😂😂😂

            • Intergalactic Walrus

              IIRC Vikki Lizzi is co-hosting the party. You’d have to pay me to be there!

            • Frodis73

              I do not even know who that is and I am too lazy to google. Now that I think about it, they’d have to pay me too.

            • Intergalactic Walrus

              She was Jeff Conaway’s “fiance” when he was all drugged up in his last days. I only know this because I watched Celebrity Rehab when he was a patient and she was caught trying to sneak drugs into him. I think his family got a TRO to keep her away from him at the end. A real bottom feeder trying to get into show-biz anyway she can. Kuba has posted that she is his best friend and that characters on “Empire” are based on the two of them. Dude is mentally unsound.

            • Frodis73

              Holy cow. Now I know who she is. Lol that she is buddies with him. I had heard the Empire bit being about him. That guy needs mental help.

        Joy Villa has now become a one trick pony. As such, she needs to get as much mileage as possible out of her Trump dress. Her next gig is the grand opening of a new Subway sandwich retail unit in Spokane next to the Rite Aid on 8th & Central. Local GOP boosters will be there to cheer her on. Lunch with Joy and Andre is $55.00 (meal included + large soda. Refills are not included).

        • Missionary Kid

          Perfect. Don’t sign me up.

          • Douglas D. Douglas

            For $75 you get the sandwich and don’t have to share it with Joy and Andre.

            • Missionary Kid

              That’s still too painful and expensive. Overpriced, that’s everything that $cientology touches.

  • beauty for ashes
    • OTVIIIisGrrr8!

      NO DANNY NO! Your church did not fail you. You failed your church!

  • WTF!

    UPDATE:
    Masterson denied the claims in a statement sent by his rep to Variety, saying:

    “We are aware of [the alleged victim’s] 16-year-old allegations. It was only after [the alleged victim] was in contact with Leah Remini that she made allegations of sexual assault by Mr. Masterson. The
    alleged incident occurred in the middle of their six-year relationship, after which she continued to be his longtime girlfriend. Significantly, during their long relationship she made numerous inconsistent claims
    that she was previously raped by at least three other famous actors and musicians.

    When Danny ended the relationship she continued to pursue him, even making threats to beat up his current wife Bijou Phillips unless she left him. In fact, we are informed by the Church that the only
    demand [the alleged victim] made of the Church after Danny broke up withher was asking for their help to intervene so the breakup would not be permanent.

    We are aware also that approximately 14 years ago a woman referred to in the blog made allegations of sexual assault and that the LADP interviewed numerous witnesses and determined the claim had no merit. Based on reading the anti-Scientology blog that posted this story, these false allegations appear to be motivated to boost Leah Remini’s anti-Scientology television series since [the alleged victim] only came forward after connecting with Leah Remini.”

    I smell a huge flop by Leah.

    • sapphire

      Fukk him and his rep. This isn’t going to go away, not this time.

    • Intergalactic Walrus

      “We are aware of [the alleged victim’s] 16-year-old allegations. It was only after [the alleged victim] was in contact with Leah Remini that she made allegations of sexual assault by Mr. Masterson.”

      Bullsh#t!
      “Victim A” tweeted about this long BEFORE Leah’s Aftermath was aired on A&E. It was discussed here in The Bunker comments at the time.

    • Frodis73

      A flop by Leah? What makes you say that? You know that rep speaking for Danny was not only at that party, but she is also a scientoogist AND listed as a witness in the police reports. Not reliable at all.

        I WAS blissfully ignorant of such terms as “donkey-punch” (perhaps You begin to see WHY I live happily under a rock here in Northern Europe? ) however,now that I’ve been mis-edjucated, I see You make a very good Point, MK ✌👊

        • Missionary Kid

          I’d never heard the expression either.

          • John Prince

            I think old Guys like us tend to tune out such “modern wisdom” but regardless of Your age, it’s hard Not to notice this alarming Trend we’re seeing. .Imagine that? Wog Women AND scientology Women are getting pretty uppidy aren’t they? They seem to think it’s somehow NOT o.k. to rape them, wether you’re a “celebrity” or not and some are even insisting that their rapists be PUNISHED for their despicable crimes. . (I, personally would castrate ANY MAN who would rape a Woman ,period. .yes,I am writing a book on the subject. .titeled “womanizing, done right ” subtiteled – tales from the Front lines. .You’re welcome to proofread the first few chapters aß I value Your opinion! )

            • Missionary Kid

              It’s funny, but when I was a young man, and a woman said, “stop”, I did, and said, in a positive manner, something like, “OK, that’s fine. You’ve set the limits, and I’m going to go along with them.” Then I would change the subject to a friendly conversation.

              What I found was that women were much more open and trusting, and, often enough, even became sexually aggressive. I realized that acting like a horn dog, as we call it in the U.S., was really a turn-off to women. Trust is a big part of a relationship.

            • Frodis73

  • Helen Van Patterson Patton

    Upon second reading, this point jumped out at me.
    After telling her it would be OK to walk away, now Det. Reyes told her that she had “ruined” the case with her recorded phone call to Masterson’s publicist.
    Both situations result in a case that quietly and quickly blows away.
    hmmmm…

      No shit. Reyes was assigned to make sure this all went away.

          I know you were kidding, but I’m not. 🙂

  • sapphire

    I’ve been preoccupied by this all day and have one more thing to say. While Masterson’s crimes are heinous and need to be prosecuted, the LAPD needs to be exposed. I’ve known for decades that the LAPD were being paid off by the Scios. We need the FBI to investigate and I can’t imagine why they haven’t. The child labor laws have been and are violated every day. Children are essentially kept from their parent(s). Etc, etc, etc. It’s high time that SOMEONE investigates the LAPD for their lack of prosecution. I literally feel sick.

    • Frodis73

      ^^This.

    • Ann B Watson

      Absolutely sapphire. I knew about the LAPD in 1974 in Sea Org Asho Fdn. In fact I am now convinced I was turned into the Guardian’s Office Intel in the late 70s by a cop on LAPD. Because of all the late late night early early am buses I had to take from The Hollywood Cockroach Inn to Asho on Temple st after the big van for the Manor Hotel now CCLA was taken off of carpooling SO Members to Asho etc when being out at all hours alone, not a good idea. With the Hillside Strangler prowling all around that area. But the van was needed for public that supposedly were going to The Manor. So this one cop was not helping me while I waited but kept asking me if I worked for the LA Times! Quite a question for a police person to come up with out of the blue. Thus began my worst time in SO, before finally blowing in 78, it was that bad. So yes The Cult of Scientology also pays people to be silent. I would never ever touch one cent of their blood money. My heart would explode. Love all on The Bunker, just a fantastic place to be a part of. Thank you all. 😘❤️And Tony You Rock for the Ages.xo

  • JaxNGold

    Oh man. I’m dying right now.

    So, I walk into the living room and hubby’s watching some comedy on HBO called Central Intelligence. He goes, “Babe, you gotta rewind this, they just made a $cientology joke”.

    So, of course I do. And there’s Jason Bateman (love him, he’s hilarious) and his character is going off on two other characters and he says “I’m a $cientologist, that’s A! Been thetan-free since 2003. Clear as shit!”

    I almost choked when hubby said “Did he say Satan-free?”

    Bateman’s delivery had me rolling. Had to rewind it like 4 times.

    Thought we could all use that laugh after today’s news.

    • Intergalactic Walrus

      You forgot to mention that his character is a nasty, arrogant a-hole. The clams were up in arms and posting on social media that his career was now finished after that came out. I had to chuckle when he presented at the Oscars last Sunday. Without a clam in sight 🙂

      • JaxNGold

        Wow, no kidding? I hadn’t heard of this movie until tonight and had no idea the clams were posting about his “career being over” after it came out. As if! Damn, they’re so blind.

        • Intergalactic Walrus

          The comments were hilarious. Most were convinced that he was slamming their religion because he is some kind of a bigoted hate-monger. Apparently they do not know that actors recites lines from a script written by a screenwriter. Typical idiotic clams.

        • Taffy Sinclair

      • JaxNGold

        Oh for F’s sake. Poor Claudia…so deluded. She’s so full of it when she claimed people in the theater said things like “give me a break” or “come on”. Yeah, right. People probably laughed at that scene which pissed her off even more.

        There’s so much nonsense in her rant that I don’t know where to start. Really funny to see she believes there’s “millions” of $cientologists in the world. She’s in for a rude awakening if she ever actually wakes up.

        • Intergalactic Walrus

          We have to cut her some slack. I know when my body thetans talk back to the screen in a movie theater, I often think I’m hearing the reaction of the other theatergoers. It can be terribly confusing 😉

    What an awful story. I hope there is justice. Thank you to Leah Remini and her program for giving a voice to the victims. Thank you to Tony Ortega for tirelessly reporting this “beat” for decades. No doubt this story will be updated many times in the future. I hope LA law enforcement agencies and judiciary system will finally step up to the plate and fully investigate the myriad claims against the CoS in their jurisdiction. Simply said, it stinks.

  • Snuzey

    Come back for the updates…

    So to be clear, the statement being sent out is written by a scientologist for a scientologist, in a cover up for Scientology.

    We need a KSW quote to show how it is ok to lie.

    • “Don’t underestimate the power of the Dark Side!” — Dart Wader!

    • Graham

      So according to them Leah Remini is such a heartless bitch she’d support false allegations of rape in order to get publicity for a show that finished airing weeks ago? And people are going to believe that?

      • Missionary Kid

        Clams will believe it.

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        The way you say it makes it seem so… reasonable.

      • I don’t think so!

  • John Prince

    Who’s more ethical? jenna elfman who’d rather blow a horse than watch netflix or danny”donkey-punch”masterson who prefers raping a Woman anally while she’s unconcious?

    • John Prince

      This story is MEGA-POISON for co$…could it happen that a “celebrity” scilon gets a Criminal conviction because three scilons testified against him in a WOG COURT? goes against scilon law, doesn’t it? and even if this maggoty puke-stain masterson doesn’t get convicted, the story’s already spreading like Wildfire (thanks Tony!) and captain pissypants is rapidly running outta D-rate “celebrities” to hold up as Poster boys 😅😆😂

  • Me

    My personal opinion is he is most likely guilty, but I really
    don’t know. We have this thing called Due Process. You should look it up.

    • lynn

      Due Process…does that include all nonsense of the scientology biased detective muddling the evidence? With all the overt signs of corruption & cover up from both the law & sci, you’re concerned with due process?

      • Me

        I’m concerned with convicting a man before he has his day in court. Nothing more.

        • lynn

          When would that day be, when it appears there’s been cover-up & corruption? If they were interested in Due Process, they’d of put the facts before a court, not trying to subvert it.

        • Frodis73

          And again let us point out that it is interesting you put so much trust in that court process being fair when scientology is involved. They have already messed up and influenced the investigation.

          • Me

            Everything’s a cover-up. Everything’s a conspiracy. You’re just as brainwashed as the Scientologist loonies.

            • Frodis73

              Hmm, maybe you should look into the very well known history of the lengths scientology has gone to while in court to pervert justice first. I am a big believer in due process, problem is when you have a client with unlimited pocket book and religious doctrine telling them it is ok to harm people if it advances the scientology agenda-you have got problems.
              Btw, no everything is NOT a cover up or a conspiracy. How you even took that from my comment is just dumb. This is not chemtrails, lizard people or other Alex Jones shit we are talking about. Read Tony’s book for starters and then get back to me about this.

  • Mirnaminkoff

    Posting this here as well as new thread because not sure where it should go: Reading recent coverage about Masterson I noticed a story from two weeks ago about his wife having kidney disease and needing dialysis. Of course there was the hokey stuff about curing/helping her with new agey crap and vegan diets but it got me wondering if a few to many purification rundowns might have excerbated poor Bijou’s condition, because it clearly states that niacin can be very dangerous for people with kidney disease. You know the purification rundown would have been the first thing they had Bijou do and if she was having health problems they would have pushed it down her throat again as a cure. Even moderate doses of niacin are dangerous to people with kidney problems, I can only imagine what the insanely dangerous mega doses of Scientology prescribes during the PR could do to someone that might have a pre-existing condition. His wife’s need for a kidney transplant at age 37 might be directly caused by the CoS dangerous PR quackery.

        Bingo! you’ve found jenni weinman…the names and faces there in that page have a tremendous potential for more digging into the darkness of the Masterson clan. I’m sure that this rape claims are just the tip of a huge disgusting and shocking iceberg that involves other famous scientologists….is well know how they recruit young actors and how they use them and manipulate them, so I’m sure there’s a lot to dirt under the rug

        • Frodis73

          I agree about this being the tip of the iceberg, he appears to be a serial rapist…where there are 3, there are more. Probably still in the church and in good standing, so unless they are declared or blow they will not be speaking out. I would love to hear anything else about that whole crowd actually. They think they rule Hollywood, but most are barely known. Lol. So bummed that Ben Foster is one tho. Hey, Jason Lee got out, so maybe there is hope for more to find the exit.

          • 2hell_dev

            To be honest I’m not wholly buying it that Jason Lee truly left: he was photographed recently with Masterson himself and other hardcore members belonging to the Masterson clan, when they were touring with his band in Denton. Had he truly have left the cult, he’d be a SP and would be absolutely and unceremoniously be left out. He still has social media ties with most of them. Same for Juliette Lewis: she’s still way too close to too many hardcore scientologists to be on her way out. The only one who seem to really be out of it if Ribisi’s daughter. Foster is now full in, not that he wasn’t before but now that he’s with prepon he can’t deny it. I think he and Masterson were trying to recruit Robin Wright and her children with Sean Penn.

            • Frodis73

              Hmm, interesting. Why do you think he said that to press? Keep in mind that sci celebs are allowed to break all the rules when it comes to that kind of stuff.

            • 2hell_dev

              I really don’t know, but probably many of them started to realize that career wise is very negative to be linked with scientology, specially for those like Lee or Foster who are somewhat famous but still have to search for roles and have to still hustle for auditions as opposed to the myriad of C/D listers that are the vast majority of scions who are mostly working on sitcoms and shitty tv shows…

            • Frodis73

              I do hope he talks about it someday in more detail. I really liked him, hated finding out he was one of them.

          • 2hell_dev

            yeap. that’s Foster kissing Masterson. This happened shortly after he broke up with Robin Wright and months before he was paired up with ms xenu Prepon who was desperately looking for a baby daddy. He’s also Masterson’s daughter godfather, and we know that Masterson won’t name godfather to his daughter someone who’s not fully committed into the cult.

            • Frodis73

              Breaking up with Robin was huge mistake on his part, idiot.

            • 2hell_dev

              It was her who ended it, I think. I’ve realized that after I read that Foster was named Masterson’s daughter godfather in 2014, thus while he and Wright were dating and just got engaged. That means that Foster never left the cult and mostly probably Wright wanted nothing to do with it. Her, her money and her kids (with Sean Penn) were probably seen as magnificent prey by the cult and the Mastersons. Now it all makes sense: foster is expecting a child with Prepon and he’s basically came out as a cult member. She’s well rid of. Dodged a bullet.

            • Frodis73

              That is true, she is awesome. I had heard that she did hate the cult and was pulling Ben away, which is a good thing. Well, was a good thing.

            • Timber56

              You sure thrive on writing speculation as fact. Laura and Foster have known each other for years, whether or not because they’re scientologists (if Foster really is, and just isn’t someone who’s friends with Masterson or maybe dabbled time ago).

            • 2hell_dev

              they know each other because of Masterson and Scientology, they’ve been acquaintances because of the cult and in 18 years they never gave one sign of close friendship. Foster is so deep into the cult that Masterson named him nothing less than his daughter’s godfather. Prepon wounlt have a kid with a wog and Masterson wouldn’t name godfather to his daughter a wog. Do a little reaserch and you’ll find out the tons of events and pictures that prove that Foster has ties with generations of scientologists. He’s never been vocal and people doesn’t know it because he’s just too irrelevant and barely famous and knows that is damaging for his career. But I sense that you know all this already and you have an agenda by responding in their defense, so bye.

            • Timber56

              Lol what defense? Who’s defense? Look at comment, there’s nothing defending anything or anything to defend, what the heck are you talking about. The one thing I said what was that Prepon & Foster obviously had known each other for a long time, they said so themselves, and that you’re writing speculation as fact. And you’re the one who sounds like you have an agenda to defend & pursue.

            • 2hell_dev

              ahahahah so you’re one of those fools who blindly believes anything a celeb would say? we’re talking about the woman who famously said that Scientology has nothing remotely homophobic in its texts and beliefs. So go ahed and believe her if she says that she’s been friends with Foster for 18 years.. LOL

              And what is the “speculation” that I’m stating as a fact? I’ve just wrote things that can be easy googled. Now YOU prove to me that Foster and Prepon have been friends for 18 years? Go ahed and you’ll just find a couple of pictures in 18 YEARS of “friendship” where they actually look like complete strangers…she just said that to justify the fact that she got pregnant weeks after they started hooking up and that their coupling has 100% Shitology behind them…

            • Frodis73

              She showed up earlier in the comments pissed off that Tony mentioned that Danny recruited Laura. Until she showed up bitching about it nobody in the comments had even mentioned Laura’s stupid name, but she sure brought it to our attention. Somehow she was trying to say that what tony had said was bad in some way. She is just a fan girl of laura and is obviously willing to defend her…even when there is nothing to defend her from. Go read her earlier comments, the whole thing is kind of funny. You can ignore her because the discussion here is going about the same as it did earlier, in circles!

            • 2hell_dev

              oh I see…it makes sense…sometimes stans of certain scientologists celebrities show up here and get pissed off with us because THEIR favorite celebrity has the brain of an ant and was recruited by this cult: is not our fault! I personally couldn’t care less about any of these celebrities on their own but it pisses me off that sometimes their fans, like this stan here, get personally offended by the negative news about their celebs and even are conditioned and manipulated to get into the cult and defend it only because their favorite celebrity is a member. I wouldn’t be surprised if many fans of Prepon got interested in scientology because of her.

            • Timber56

              Lol you gave away your angry shipper schtick. I’ve read your shipper thread and that is word for what’s said there. Lol. Btw, just to correct one, LP said that SHE hasn’t come across homophobic things in her experience, not that “Scientology has nothing homophobic in it’s the exits and beliefs”. Nuance, understand it. Talking about what one has come across, one’s own experience does not = saying “this doesn’t exist”, it just means that’s one’s experince. And Laura hangs with a liberal crowd and she has gay friends, one of her closest being her gay hairstylist Jonathan.

  • Just wondering if Captain Storaker had anything yo do with the LAPD handling of Leah’s missing person report? Internal Affairs need to examine someone’s ass alright. Any cop associated with Scientology ought to be immediately suspended without pay. Scientology is a subversive group intent on taking over all existing societal structures. In some ways Russia has it right.

    • FredEX2

      ^^^^^

  • Jgg2012

    Since Scientology does not believe in victims, especially victims of celebrities, they must think that these women caused Masterson to do these things (they made him angry, or they implanted something in him). The First Amendment and religious freedom, however, does not excuse violent behavior (i.e. you cannot convert by the sword), so it is still a criminal act.

  • Dave Reams

    Sickening reports about Masterson … just sickening!

        Oh how wonderful, Laura Pepron’s defender is back! Laura, laura, laura.

        • Mooser42001

          Laura, of course, is that face in the misty light, or footsteps that you hear down the hall. The laugh which floats on a summer night, that you can never quite recall. That’s Laura.

      • 2hell_dev

        Scientology is not a religion, is a cult, so they’re allowed to keep whatever their traditions and system of beliefs are, so there are scientologists who are Jewish and Catholics and Mormons, whatever they are they can still follow their traditions, yes, I know, a complete mess….that’s what they are.

        • Qbird

          hey 2hell_dev… thx for your insights. Q

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    I’ve read a whole lot of Scientology entry forms. They ask a lot of questions about your sexual history.

    Should we report Masterson to DM? He’s having buttsecks. I’m pretty sure that’s frowned on. What’s that RTC website where you can send a KR?

    Heh.

    • Qbird

      oh that buggering – it really does bother DM, doesn’t it?!

      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        hehehehehe…he does seem to bring it up at oddly inappropriate times, doesn’t he…

  • NewSciWatcher

    Hello Tony and Bunker, your story was picked up worldwide, got a few entries from big South American newspapers, such as Folha de São Paulo yesterday (equivalent to New York Post), you were quoted, no links to your blog though, just a skim the surface report over your report. That 70s show is still big in Brazil among millenials so that’s what anyone relates to regarding have-been career of Masterson’s. Here’s the link:
