As Danny Masterson, star of That 70’s Show, has been sentenced to 30 years to life in prison last week, many are wondering about the woman present at all his appearances in front of the court and media, standing beside him throughout it all.
That woman happens to be actress Bijou Phillips, Masterson’s wife of 12 years.
She has been standing by her husband’s side from the very beginning of his case, which began in 2020 when he was accused of raping a 23-year-old woman sometime in 2001, and then was alleged to have raped a 28-year-old woman in April 2003.

That same year, it was claimed he raped another 23-year-old woman at his Hollywood Hills home. The actor completely denied the allegations at the time three years ago.
Now, as he is staring down the barrel of a long prison sentence, his wife is reportedly “distraught”, but has no plans to leave him.
A source recently told People, “She has had a very difficult time since the conviction,
“She loves Danny and has no plans to file for divorce. She will be by his side for it all.”
