Declaring that she “stayed quiet long enough,” a fifth woman has come forward to say Danny Masterson raped her.
Bobette Riales wrote on Twitter Wednesday that the former “That ’70s Show” actor repeatedly assaulted her sexually. “All I seek is justice,” she wrote.
Riales and Masterson appear to have been in a relationship in 2003.
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. I applaud her strength as well. @ChrissieBixler #metoo #sisters

A previous accuser, Chrissie Carnell-Bixler, wrote back to praise Riales for coming forward. “He will never do this to another human being ever again,” she wrote.
he Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told the New York Daily News that it has been investigating Masterson, 41, for nearly a year. But, according to HuffPost, the investigation stalled despite what one law enforcement official said was “overwhelming” evidence against the actor.
The first four allegations originate from incidents in the early 2000s. At least three of the accusers, like Masterson, were Scientologists, HuffPost reported.
Masterson has denied the allegations.
Earlier this month, Netflix told HuffPost it had written Masterson out of its show “The Ranch,” and that he would not be returning “as a result of ongoing discussions.”
