Danny Masterson, Church of Scientology Sued by 4 Sexual Assault Accusers for Alleged Stalking

Danny Masterson, Church of Scientology Sued by 4 Sexual Assault Accusers for Alleged Stalking

Four women filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Danny Masterson and the Church of Scientology, alleging they were stalked and intimidated after accusing the actor of sexual assault.

In the complaint obtained by PEOPLE, Chrissie Carnell Bixler (Masterson’s ex), Marie Bobette Riales and two anonymous Jane Does accuse Masterson and the church of engaging in stalking, physical invasion of privacy and a conspiracy to obstruct justice, among other allegations, claiming they and their families were harassed in an effort to silence them. (Bixler’s husband is also a plaintiff.)

HuffPost was the first to report the news.

“This is beyond ridiculous,” Masterson said in a statement to PEOPLE through his attorney. “I’m not going to fight my ex-girlfriend in the media like she’s been baiting me to do for more than two years. I will beat her in court — and look forward to it because the public will finally be able learn the truth and see how I’ve been railroaded by this woman. And once her lawsuit is thrown out, I intend to sue her and the others who jumped on the bandwagon for the damage they caused me and my family.”

In a statement, a litigation counsel for the Church of Scientology told PEOPLE: “From everything we have read in the press, this baseless lawsuit will go nowhere because the claims are ludicrous and a sham. It’s a dishonest and hallucinatory publicity stunt. Leah Remini is taking advantage of these people as pawns in her moneymaking scam.”

Remini, 49, was a member of the church for 35 years before making her split public in 2013. Since she left, she’s been an outspoken critic of Scientology. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the accusations against Masterson will be included in the two-hour series finale special for Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath.

According to the plaintiffs’ complaint, Masterson, 39, has been under investigation over the sexual assault allegations by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney since 2017. He has repeatedly denied the claims.

The That ’70s Show alumnus was dropped from the Netflix series The Ranch and by his agency, UTA, in the wake of the allegations.

The four women, who have accused Masterson of raping them in the early 2000s, claim in the

Justin Timberlake Shares Behind-the-Scenes Clip of His Potential Collab with Lizzo in the Studio

Justin Timberlake Shares Behind-the-Scenes Clip of His Potential Collab with Lizzo in the Studio

Justin Timberlake and breakout star Lizzo are cooking up some heat in the studio!

On Thursday, Timberlake, 38, shared a behind-the-scenes clip of himself in the studio with Lizzo, jamming out to what appears to be their new joint track.

“… @Lizzo flames, brb,” Timberlake captioned the clip, which shows him dancing as Lizzo, 31, excitedly waves her arms up and down to the lyrics “Get back, get back” of the bouncy song.

Timberlake did not elaborate on when the track will be released or its title.

It’s been a pretty big year for Lizzo, who released her album Cuz I Love You in April.

The star has graced a several magazine covers — including Essence, Allure and Love — and stunned the audience at the 2019 BET Awards in June with an epic performance of her hit “Truth Hurts.”

Lizzo is also set to perform at the 2019 MTV VMAS, which are airing from New Jersey on August 26.

While it’s safe to say the singer is on a roll, her road to success has been paved with challenges.

In June, Lizzo revealed that two years ago, she was ready to give up on her dream.

“It was a long road,” Lizzo previously told PEOPLE of her career.

Indeed, Lizzo (real name: Melissa Jefferson) has been hustling to make a name for herself for 10 years.

Born in Detroit and raised in Houston (where she trained to become a classical flutist), Lizzo moved to Minneapolis in 2011 to pursue music. She quickly became a local celebrity in the city’s hip-hop community — and was even a protégée of Minnesota native Prince, performing at Paisley Park and recording with the icon before his death.

Lizzo’s big break came in 2016, when she signed a major label deal with Atlantic Records. Nearly a year after releasing her acclaimed Coconut Oil EP, Lizzo dropped her rowdy breakup bop “Truth Hurts” in September 2017. But she was devastated by the initial response — or lack thereof.

“The day I released ‘Truth Hurts’ was probably one of the darkest days I’ve ha

Strangers Answer Call to Attend Funeral for El Paso Shooting Victim

Strangers Answer Call to Attend Funeral for El Paso Shooting Victim

Without any family of his own, Tony Basco feared he would be the only person attending his wife’s funeral service, so he invited the public to attend.

Within 24 hours, the Perches Funeral Home received 300 phone calls for Friday’s visitation and funeral service for Margie Reckard, a 53-year-old woman who was one of 22 people killed during a mass shooting at the El Paso Walmart on Aug. 3.

The response was bigger than expected and caused officials to move the services from the 200-seat funeral home to La Paz Faith Center, a bigger venue that seats up to 500 people.

“The response has been overwhelming,” Perches funeral director Harrison Johnson tells PEOPLE. “I’ve never seen anything like this — the community showing support and love for somebody they don’t even know.”

As the news of Basco’s request began to spread through city, Anthony Tomasheski, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of El Paso, tells PEOPLE he didn’t hesitate about making plans to attend.

“I couldn’t imagine it, losing his wife and sitting alone,” he says. “People say she had no family, but actually she has a very rich family, all of El Paso is her family.”

Basco and Reckard were married for more than 22 years, according to reports. While she had three children from a previous relationship, the couple did not have any children of their own. For more than two decades, the pair were inseparable.

“When we first met, that feeling came to each one of us, to each other, and we’ve been together ever since,” Basco told local TV station KFOX14. “We were gonna live together and die together, that was our plan.”

On Aug. 3, Reckard decided to visit Walmart to do some shopping when a shooter entered the store, killed 22 people and injured 24 more. Basco told funeral director Johnson that he wishes he had been with his wife.

“He’s still cries when he talks about her,” Johnson says. “Ms. Margie did everything for him. She was his wife, his business manager, his confidant, and his friend.”
