Bijou Phillips has ‘no plans’ to divorce Danny Masterson after prison sentencing

Bijou Phillips has ‘no plans’ to divorce Danny Masterson after prison sentencing

The couple, who got married in 2011 and share one daughter, will reportedly stay together even after Masterson's prison sentencing for rape.

Bijou Phillips has ‘no plans’ to divorce Danny Masterson despite his long prison sentencing for rape, it has been claimed.

The actress married the That ‘70s Show actor in 2011 and they have a daughter together, who was born in 2014.

Phillips is said to be ‘distraught’ ever since he was handed a 30-year prison sentence last week, but she intends to stick beside him, People reports.

The outlet also claimed that since the day of the sentencing, the Raising Hope actor has been ‘surrounded by family and friends’ who have been helping her cope with the recent events.

“She has had a very difficult time since the conviction,” a source told People. “She loves Danny and has no plans to file for divorce. She will be by his side for it all.”

The insider added: “She is in touch with his lawyer. They are planning appeals. She tries to stay hopeful.”

UNILAD has contacted Masterson's attorney for comment.

Last Thursday (September 7) Bijou was in the courtroom when Masterson was sentenced.

Bijou Phillips plans to stay married to Danny Masterson, a source has claimed.

He reportedly blew a kiss to his wife before he was taken away to begin his sentence in prison.

Phillips was sat alongside his other family members.

The 47-year-old actor - who has been in custody since May of this year - was present in Los Angeles Superior Court when his sentence was handed down by Judge Charlaine F Olmedo.

After the initial jury were unable to reach verdicts on three counts of rape in December 2022, a mistrial was declared.

However, prosecutors retried Masterson on all three counts earlier this year as a jury of seven women and five men found Masterson guilty of two counts on May 31.

Both attacks were said to have taken place in Masterson’s home in 2003.

A verdict could not be reached on the third count - an allegation that Masterson also raped a longtime girlfriend.

Although the defence sought to have sentences for the two convictions run simultaneously, and asked for a sentence of 15 years to life.

The prosecution asked for the full 30 years to life sentence that Masterson was eligible for, which the judge went forward with when sentencing him for the rapes of two women.

Part of the evidence presented ahead of Masterson's sentencing involved character references. These included letters from his fellow stars of That 70s Show Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, which the celebrity couple have since apologized for.

Masterson, along with the women, were part of the Church of Scientology at the time.

He has always maintained that he was innocent.
