On Wednesday night, actress and model Bobette Riales became the fifth woman to accuse the actor of sexual misconduct when she took to Twitter to allege that Masterson had repeatedly raped her while they were dating in 2003. It wasn't long after that another former girlfriend of the actor replied, telling Riales that she is "so proud."
You are amazing. I’m so proud of you. He will never do this to another human being ever again. He’s a thief in the night, but he overlooked some incredibly valuable things we still possess. Our voice. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️— chrissie carnell-bixler (@ChrissieBixler) December 21, 2017

Carnell-Bixler previously came forward to accuse Masterson of raping her while they dated in 2001.
Accusations against the actor, who is also a member of the Church of Scientology, first became public in March when a story was published on the website The Underground Bunker claiming that the Los Angeles Police Department was investigating multiple cases of rape and sodomy by Masterson.
