Cedric Bixler-Zavala has told fans to re-read his lyrics to a song off At The Drive-In's latest album, hinting that they may allude to the alleged sexual assault of his wife by actor Danny Masterson.

Masterson, who stars in Netflix comedy The Ranch alongside his former That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher, is accused of rape by four women, who claim the incidents took place in the early 2000s.

Earlier this month The Huffington Post reported that an LAPD investigation had “inexplicably stalled” despite the Los Angeles County district attorney having “compelling evidence in the case”.

Masterson has denied the rape allegations. A representative for the actor, who is a Scientologist, recently said the “false allegations appear to be motivated to boost Leah Remini's anti-Scientology television series”.

Bixler-Zavala's wife, actress and model Chrissie Bixler, later came forward to confirm she was one of the women who had pressed charges against Masterson.

Bixler-Zavala supported her claim and said they had been harassed in the year since she filed a police report.

The couple also criticised "fake feminists" - prominent women Scientologists, such as Orange Is The New Black star Laura Prepon and actress Juliette Lewis - for not speaking out against Masterson.

Bixler-Zavala told fans that they “might wanna go back and re-read my 'nonsensical lyrics'” from his band's album Interalia.

The song “Incurably Innocent”, which he has previously said is about sexual abuse, features the lyric: “Marching to the coffins on Franklin Avenue”, which refers to the location of the Church of Scientology's Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles.
