Danny Masterson‘s wife has requested a divorce less than two weeks after her husband received a 30 to life prison term for rape.

According to court papers, Bijou Phillips, a model and actor who was present when the “That ’70s Show” star was convicted, filed for divorce on Monday in Santa Barbara Superior Court.

“Ms. Phillips has decided to file for divorce from her husband during this unfortunate time. Her priority remains with her daughter,” her attorney Peter A. Lauzon said in a statement. “This period has been unimaginably hard on the marriage and the family. … Ms. Phillips acknowledges that Mr. Masterson is a wonderful father to their daughter. She hopes that everyone will respect her family’s privacy in these difficult times.”

According to the application, Phillips, 43, stated “irreconcilable differences” as the basis for the divorce and is asking for spousal support as well as legal costs.

Additionally, she has asked to have her legal name changed back to Bijou Phillips.

In a statement to the judge who sentenced her husband this month, Phillips referred to Masterson as a devoted parent and “a life-saving partner to me.”

“We need him more than you can imagine,” Phillips wrote in the letter dated just last month. “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.”

Masterson, 47, was found guilty of raping two women in his Los Angeles home 20 years ago and sentenced in May. A jury was unable to decide the allegations against a third lady.

The actor has refuted every accusation, despite not having testified during the trial.

Masterson’s lawyer declined to comment.
