What would you do if a good buddy of yours was accused of rape, not once, but three times? Ashton Kutcher is reportedly looking to Mila Kunis for support amid their former That '70s Show costar Danny Masterson's past rape allegations that resurfaced -- resulting in Masterson's losing his job on Netflix's The Ranch, a show he once starred in alongside Kutcher.

  • A Kutcher "insider" claims the dad of two isn't doing well, and is "struggling" with the allegations.

  • "Ashton has been leaning on his wife Mila during this crisis with their friend Danny," the source alleged to

    "Ashton has been talking at length with Mila about the terrible allegations against Danny, whom they both love. They are struggling with the allegations against him," the source added. 
  • Three women accused Masterson of rape back in March. And while the actor maintains his innocence, Netflix recently made the decision to fire him because of the allegations.

    The Huffington Post published an article on December 4 claiming that a Netflix exec refused to believe one of Masterson's accusers, which seems to be the straw that broke the camel's back. Masterson has since responded to his termination and admitted he's "very disappointed" that he's no longer on The Ranch.

    "Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit," Masterson asserted in his statement to CNN. "I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused."

  • "Mila is disappointed by Danny's firing but understands what a tough position Ashton was put in," the unnamed insider mentioned.

    "Mila and Ashton have known Danny for a very long time and know him to be a sweet, kind, gentle soul. Danny has slammed the allegations so Ashton and Mila are both hoping for this sad story to turn around with a happy ending."

  • Given the trio's history, it's understandable how something like this would cause emotions to rise.
