On Tuesday, Bijou Phillips filed for divorce from Danny Masterson, less than two weeks after the That ’70s Show actor and prominent Scientologist was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison on two out of three counts of rape.

“Ms. Phillips has decided to file for divorce from her husband during this unfortunate time,” Phillips’ attorney, Peter A. Lauzon, told TMZ. “Her priority remains with her daughter.” (Phillips gave birth to a daughter with Masterson in 2014.)

The news comes as a shock considering Phillips has been steadfast in her support through Masterson’s 2022 rape trial and 2023 retrial wherein he was accused of brutally sexually assaulting three women—all former Scientologists—between 2001 and 2003, at the height of his fame. (Masterson has continued to deny the accusations and said all the encounters were consensual.) As noted by reporters, Phillips was often present for the proceedings and “looked shattered” after his sentencing. A courtroom sketch revealed Masteron blew her a kiss before being taken into custody.
