Dany Masterson Was Unsurprised And Aware That Bijou Phillips Would File For Divorce

Danny Masterson was unsurprised that Bijou Phillips, his wife, filed for divorce after he was sentenced. Masterson was convicted on charges of rape and would stay 30 years behind bars. He said that he knew the actress would end their 12-year marriage, a source told TMZ on Friday.

The outlet reported that the couple’s primary concern is their daughter Fianna, 9. But the reason why Phillips took the decision is a lot more than what people can see. According to a source who reported to DailyMail.com, her cause is “twofold.”

According to an insider, “Recently, friends and family have told her to be a mom first and to consider divorce because it really shows her daughter that eventually people need to be held accountable for what they do, even if it is someone they love. Bijou also is doing it to protect her assets and protect her future. She doesn’t want to lose money and land and housing over a future civil lawsuit against Danny.”

Phillips stayed by her husband throughout the court proceedings and even appealed to the judge in a letter before the sentence was declared this month. She wrote, “We need him more than you can imagine. I know he has been convicted of serious crimes. But the man I married has only been an extraordinary husband to me and a devoted father to our daughter.”

She added, “He helps her with homework every night. He teaches her math with kindness and patience. She is far above grade level in all subjects, reading three grades above her own, and that is thanks to the guidance and attention of her father.”However, within two weeks of Masterson’s sentence, she filed for divorce and requested to deny Masterson any financial support.
