Leah Remini reportedly interviewed Danny Masterson's alleged rape victims: Why the footage may never air

Leah Remini reportedly interviewed three women who allege that "That '70s Show" actor Danny Masterson raped them between 2001 and 2003. The interviews were for her Emmy-winning A&E series "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath," though Scientology-focused journalist Tony Ortega reports that Remini asked the network to hold on airing the episode.

According to Ortega's report, Remini and co-star Mike Rinder were asked by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office to hold airing the episode while they decided whether or not to file charges against Masterson, who himself is a Scientologist. Remini then reportedly asked A&E not to air the explosive episode.

With just three episodes left in the show's current second season, the DA's office has yet to make a decision about filing charges against Masterson. Masterson denies all four women's allegations against him.

Celebrities you didn't know were Scientologists:

HuffPost published a revealing update on the case on Thursday, alleging that the case has been "slow-rolled" despite "overwhelming" evidence against the actor, who has lawyered up. The reported evidence includes "audiotapes, emails sent to and from Scientology officers at the time the alleged rapes happened, forensic computer evidence and a threatening handwritten letter Masterson sent to one of the alleged victims."

The article also revealed that a fourth alleged victim had come forward with claims against Masterson.

According to reports, the Los Angeles Police Department first began investigating the allegations against Masterson late last year before handing the case over to the DA's office in April of this year.

Remini and Rinder have been working to expose the Church of Scientology's secrets on "Scientology and the Aftermath" for two seasons now and won an Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series in September.

The "Kevin Can Wait" actress, a former Scientologist who split with the church in 2013, hasn't been shy about exposing famous members of the organization. Earlier this year, she famously alleged that actress Jada Pinkett Smith was a Scientologist in an interview with The Daily Beast.

"I know Jada's in. I know Jada's in. She's been in Scientology a long time," Remini said. "I never saw Will there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time."


Pinkett denied the claims on Twitter saying, "I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech... but I am not a Scientologist."

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly credited Tony Ortega's report as saying that Leah Remini interviewed four of Danny Masterson's alleged victims. She reportedly interviewed three women -- not four.
