Don Cornelius, the former host and creator of television’s Soul Train, has been accused of locking up and violently sexually assaulting two young Playboy bunnies decades ago. Former “bunny mother” P.J. Masten made the allegations against the television producer — who died in 2012 — during Monday night’s episode of Secrets of Playboy, an A&E documentary series that explores the very dark side of Playboy as told by the women who worked alongside founder Hugh Hefner and his friends. “It was probably the most horrific story I’ve ever heard at Playboy,” Masten said of Cornelius’ alleged actions. “This story is the story of a massive cleanup that never hit the press.” According to Masten, Cornelius was a Playboy VIP and familiar face to the girls.
