LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Actor Danny Masterson’s former girlfriend testified at his rape retrial Wednesday about what she calls the Church of Scientology’s “terror campaign” against her.

Chrissie B. is one of three women Masterson is charged with “forcibly raping” between 2001 and 2003. The “That ’70s Show” actor has pleaded not guilty and his first trial ended with a hung jury in late November.

Chrissie gave Eyewitness News permission to show photos of her and use her first name and last initial. She testified on Wednesday that the harassment and stalking of her family started “almost immediately” after she reported her alleged 2001 rape to the LAPD in December of 2016.

“Do you have concerns about providing testimony today?” asked Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller.

“Yes, sir,” she replied, crying on the witness stand. “For myself, my husband… our babies.”

Chrissie, her husband, and three other women have filed a civil lawsuit against Masterson, the Church of Scientology, and Scientology’s leader David Miscavige over the alleged stalking and harassment that Chrissie testified continues to this day. She told the jury that the purpose of the civil suit was to “make them stop their terror campaign against us.”

In a previous statement, the Church of Scientology said, in part, “There is zero truth to any of the testimony that the Church harassed or stalked the Jane Does. Investigation of the allegations has over and over shown them to be baseless.”

This was the second day of emotional testimony from Chrissie, and she told jurors that after she reported a 2001 alleged rape to a Scientology “Ethics Officer,” she was told that it wasn’t a rape because she was in a relationship with Masterson. She says a Scientology chaplain told her that she “pulled it in,” meaning she had done something to deserve being raped.

Chrissie testified that she was put on a Scientology “ethics program” after she told Scientology officials that Masterson had raped her. She said that program included reading Scientology books and policies about “Fair Game” and “Suppressive People.”
