Masterson was part of the Aston Kutcher comedy and is now at the centre of a sexual assault controversy that’s ready to blow in the face. The LAPD is currently investigating sexual assault claims against him – and it also hints at a Church of Scientology coverup. Currently, three women have come forward, claiming that the actor sexual assaulted them. The first allegations were part of a A&E docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
Masterson is the latest Hollywood celebrity who’s now stuck in the quicksand of sexual harassment. Before him, Kevin Spacey has been written off the hit Netflix show, House of Cards after he faced sexual harassment claims.
