Convicted rapist Danny Masterson and his estranged wife, Bijou Phillips, had been living apart for five years before she filed for divorce on Monday.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Phillips listed a second address for their 9-year-old daughter, Fianna, from 2018 to present that specifically notes the child lives solely with her mother in Santa Ynez, Calif.
Prior to that living situation, the docs show Fianna lived with both her mother and father in a Hollywood, Calif., home from 2014 to 2018.
According to Zillow, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom Hollywood compound was sold in 2021 for $6.2 million.
Reps for Phillips and Masterson did not immediately return our requests for comment.
“It is a nightmare, but she will be on his side moving forward and continue to be present for their daughter,” a source claimed just one day after his sentencing.
Phillips even wrote a letter to the judge ahead of the sentencing vouching for his character, calling him an “amazing father.”
“We need him more than you can imagine,” she wrote in the letter. “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.”
Another source told Daily Mail that friends and family had been pushing her to consider divorce to show her daughter that “people need to be held accountable for what they do, even if it’s someone they love.”
The source added, “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.”
