Danny Masterson Bijou Phillips’ Letter of Support in Rape Case Before Divorce Filing

9/19/2023 2:34 PM PT

Danny Masterson‘s wife Bijou Phillips was all-in when it came to supporting her husband in the weeks before she filed for divorce, writing a character reference in his rape trial sentencing.

Bijou sent a letter to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine Olmedo, ahead of the disgraced actor’s sentencing earlier this month — much like those sent in from Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis — pleading for a lighter sentence to come her husband’s way.

In it, Bijou said he was a “live-saving” man who spent his time during his rape allegations farming to help support his family — and pointed out the ways he helped young actors stay away from the dark side of fame — another thing Ashton and Mila noted in their letters.

She also said she still couldn’t accept that he raped 2 women … something he was found guilty of months before.

At Masterson’s sentencing, Bijou reportedly let out a wail as he was given 30 years to life … Judge Olmedo had to tell her to keep her composure or step out of the courtroom.



What’s shocking is how quickly it appears her feelings have changed over Masterson — TMZ broke the story, Bijou filed to put an end to their marriage in a California court on Monday, less than 2 weeks after he was sentenced.
