According to reports, Lisa Marie Presley will give testimony in Danny Masterson’s sexual assault case. The defense team for Masterson received notice from the prosecution that the former scientist and daughter of Elvis Presley will be called as a witness in court.
After her father’s passing, Lisa Marie spent her formative years in the group’s church. In 2012, after completing her education, she cut her links with the sect. She was the subject of earlier conjecture regarding the trial. Her testimony may now turn the tide in Masterson’s case, it has been revealed. The actor from “That ’70s Show” is currently defending himself against three forcible rape allegations and could spend the rest of his life in jail if found guilty.
Judge Charlaine Olmedo rejected Masterson’s request to postpone the trial over Rick Caruso’s anti-Scientology advertisements on Tuesday, October 4. The trial will now start on October 11. Lisa Marie would be called as a witness, the prosecutor team announced on Wednesday, October 5, according to a report by The Underground Bunker.
The relationship between Lisa Marie and Jane Doe 1, one of Masterson’s accusers, was also made known. Jane repeatedly mentioned a “Lisa” as a friend throughout her evidence at the preliminary hearing in 2021. Luke Watson, who was close to Danny, lived and worked with my buddy Lisa and was named Luke, according to Jane Doe 1, who testified in court.
From 1998 to 1999, Watson and Lisa Marie were romantically involved. The two were also a part of the same group as Masterson and Doe. Doe said that Masterson forcibly sexually assaulted her on April 25, 2003, after she felt ill in a hot tub with Watson and the actor from “The Ranch.” According to her testimony, she informed the lads that she was “sick to her stomach and wanted to puke up” when she told them this. Surprisingly, the boy then started to argue. Watson said to Masterson, “It’s best that I do it, honestly,” to which the latter responded, “Oh my God, dude. She’s my buddy. Not from me. I would never,” I said as I led her upstairs to the bathroom.
Before attacking her sexually, Jane Doe 1 alleged that Masterson forced his finger down her throat and assisted her in throwing up. She added that Lisa Marie, one of her friends, and Masterson asked her not to tell anyone about the incident. The survivor recalled that when he first spoke to her, he told her, “It’s okay. You like this. I’ll tell you what you’re not going to do. You — you can do this any time. But you’re not going to f*****g tell Paige, you’re not going to f*****g tell Lisa, you’re not going to f*****g tell anybody.”
