Bijou Phillips Files to Divorce Danny Masterson Following Rape Conviction, Sentencing

Earlier this month, convicted rapist Danny Masterson received a 30-year sentence.

The That ’70s Show alum has a wife, Bijou Phillips. The two share a 9-year-old daughter — who, because of his evil choices, will grow up without her father.

And Masterson will not be Phillips’ husband for long.

She has filed to divorce him. But some wonder if this is about ridding herself of a monster or just strategy for moving forward.

Less than two weeks after Danny Masteron’s sentencing, Bijou Phillips has filed to divorce him.

Nauseatingly, she has been by his side in court all along. So the divorce news has taken some by surprise.

However, on Tuesday, September 19, Bijou’s attorney released a statement on the matter.

Attorney Peter Lauzon announced: “Ms. Phillips has decided to file for divorce from her husband during this unfortunate time.”

The statement affirmed: “Her priority remains with her daughter.”

Masterson and Phillips share 9-year-old daughter Fianna Francis Masterson.

“This period has been unimaginably hard on the marriage and the family,” the attorney noted.

“Mr. Masterson was always present for Ms. Phillips during her most difficult times of her life,” he added. As if that matters to anyone but her.

The statement concluded: “Ms. Phillips acknowledges that Mr. Masterson is a wonderful father to their daughter.”

TMZ got a hold of court documents pertaining to Phillips’ divorce filing.

She did not initially list the date of separation, simply marking it as “TBD.”

She also cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of divorce. In other words, this is standard no-fault divorce. At least, on paper.

Phillips is seeking both spousal support and attorney fees. And she intends to ask the court to restore her legal name to Bijou Phillips.

Additionally, she is seeking legal and physical custody of their daughter. Obviously.

However, she has noted that she plans to permit Fianna to visit her disgraced father in prison.

Masterson and Phillips were together for eight years before they married in autumn of 2011.

So, yes, they are about one month away of their twelfth — and final — wedding anniversary.

Interestingly, last week, Phillips did not initially plan to file for divorce. She was, it seems, distraught over his sentence but did not plan any legal paperwork — beyond his appeal. What changed?

Some have speculated that something changed in the past 5 days. Perhaps the wildest theory is that Masterson confessed to these monstrous crimes to his wife.

But … that sounds unlikely.

Rather, legal experts have noted that scandals where one married partner is an infamous sexual predator tend to lead to divorce.

The innocent spouse can (hopefully) protect their reputation. Though … Phillips is a Scientologist, so she’s not winning Person Of The Year Awards anyway.

There is also financial protection (in case victims sue the predator).

And when there’s incarceration, the innocent spouse can remain afloat to care for the couple’s children.

Justin Timberlake Might SUE Britney Spears: I’ll Fix My Reputation!

Published

It seems that Justin Timberlake is so unhappy right now that he would hire an expensive legal team to help him get his reputation back on track.

Many think Justin disgusting in light of everything that Britney Spears’ biography revealed about him.

His reputation might never get back due to all of the things she confirmed and the additional facts.

According to a startling new claim, he’s so upset about it that he’s thinking of pursuing extreme legal action. Ouch!

According to a RadarOnline article, Justin Timberlake is thinking of filing a lawsuit against Britney Spears.

Unbelievably, Justin has received a lot of support from the general population over the years.

His erstwhile supporters have now abandoned him. Other famous people have also expressed their disdain at what he did to Britney.

The story claims that his original intention was to “ride” out the controversy like a wave.

When someone finds oneself in a scandal and is unable to confront the misbehavior immediately, that is frequently the wisest course of action.

This isn’t about anything Justin is doing wrong today; he can’t undo the past. Usually, the wisest course of action would be to say nothing and avoid making public appearances. (Well, after a sincere confession in which he begs for unmerited pardon in public.)

On the other hand, the report indicates that the difficulty is increasing.

October 24 was just a couple weeks ago when Britney’s book was released.

However, Justin is apparently considering alternative choices because he is feeling so “miserable” over the information that has been revealed about him.

After that, Justin has encountered trolling in a way that has never happened to him before.

Numerous messages have even been addressed to his wife, Jessica Biel.

Hers are toned differently. People want Britney to know she can leave Justin after witnessing how he handled his former partner, forcing her to get an abortion, and using her to further his own career.

It’s all becoming really irritating to him. And not just any old fans either.

Many well-known individuals have stopped following Justin on social media, including some who are much more well-known than he is, such as Madonna.

It seems like he is thinking about suing her. He may prevent her from sharing more with the correct courtroom shopping (occasionally, whiners who are too litigious try cases in the UK, where libel rules are rather backwards).

If JT is truly thinking about it, perhaps he ought to think twice before acting on it.

Famous and evil men have been known to successfully defend their ex-partners in court. Occasionally, their expensive public relations campaigns deceive both the jury and the general public.

However, over time, Justin cannot and does not want his company to be known as “the guy who sued Britney.” He ought to have treated her better if he didn’t want her to talk negatively about him.

Interview: Never2Late Opens Up About Music and New Single “Love Is Wise”

Published

on

Never2Late

It would surprise most that SteveB, a guitarist and songwriter from Yorkshire, UK, hasn’t made music and his band Never2Late his full-time career from the beginning. That’s because his unique blend of classic rock and blues is so effortless and natural. Actually, he is an orthopedic surgeon who is semi-retired.

It does make some sense when you think about it: playing the blues guitar would probably be a great way for a surgeon to cross-train since both demand extreme manual precision. That being said, it’s evident that SteveB naturally draws inspiration and inventiveness from blues rock.

“Love Is Wise,” the most recent single from Never2Late, is a cover of the track from their debut album, 2015’s It’s Hell In Happy Town.

CelebMix spoke with Never2Late to learn about his musical beginnings and the source of inspiration for his song “Love Is Wise.”

Let’s take a quick look at gear. Which sort of pedals, amplifiers, and guitar are you using?

I’m using a Kemper stage profiler to multitrack my Knaggs Kenai T/S Eric Steckel trademark guitar for the single. For my vocals, I prefer to utilize a TC Helicon Voicelive Play.

In the studio, do you employ any unique recording techniques?

Not exactly; I always perform to a click track since it makes the whole thing easier to put together. It’s very rare to find someone who can play precisely on time over a click track, according to my recording engineer! (Or maybe he’s just trying to make me feel good!)

I used to be in a band, but like many others, my dreams of being a rock star were severely thwarted by job, marriage, kids, more work, divorce, work, remarriage, more kids, and more work. Following my semi-retirement, I visited Glastonbury and was motivated to climb up into the attic, get my guitar, and form a band. We were originally a covers band, but after we performed at an event where we had to play four original songs, I decided to give it a go and ended up falling in love with writing songs.

Far too numerous to list and rather varied! I had the good fortune to grow up in an era that produced many amazing songwriters, including Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Roy Harper, and Al Stewart. Anyone who writes songs that are not formulaic and convey something about life and the human condition, such as The Beatles, XTC, Tom Waits, Cage the Elephant, Kevin Ayers, and The National, is an inspiration. Guitarists: Frank Zappa, Eric Steckel, John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, and JJ Cale. For Thin Lizzy, Led Zepplin, and sheer energy!

Versatile! Everything from somber acoustic tunes like “Requiem for a Friend” or “I Still Talk to You Everyday,” which were both written during a lockdown, to bluesy social commentary pieces like “Sometimes I’m Ashamed to be a Man” or “Motel 22,” which highlight the situation of Silicon Valley’s homeless population, to more upbeat songs like the hit single “Love Is Wise,” “Tempted,” or “Filthy Lucre.” Even the strange love ballad “You’re My Rock” is devoted to my patient spouse!

I make an effort to steer clear of the clichés of the boy meets girl, falls in love, girl dumps him, and boy is broken-hearted variety. George Harrison once stated, “I could write hundreds of songs like ‘Hey baby what you gonna do,’ but I don’t want to.” I agree with him on that point. I would prefer for my words to have some sort of significance if I were to speak. Some worth, so that it’s not just some stupid tune that made some royalties in 20 years.

Every day, I play the guitar. I start with some basic chords and eventually stray into new areas. Occasionally, I combine two things at random and a song emerges. After that, it gets refined until I am rather satisfied with the outcome. I don’t mean to sound like an expert, but creating songs is similar to giving birth. Sometimes the work is simple, and other times it takes a long time and is challenging. Sometimes, the words and music just come out of nowhere—”Blinking in the Light” was written in 30 minutes from beginning to end. It’s like an emergency caesarian section.

I frequently hear the songs in my head, and if they seem to require something that I am not able to give, I have employed Fiverr (the saxophone on “Broken Promises,” the female voice on “Refugees”). At a singer-songwriter concert I was playing at, I also got to know Joana Carvalhas, a very gifted violinist who played the violin on the songs “Refugees” and “Requiem for a Friend.” As a total Luddite, I still find it thrilling to send a WAV file across the world and receive contributions back in a few days.

The National is fantastic. Proficient musicians with an amazing song catalog; I saw them live ten days ago. Right now, I’m really into Eric Steckel’s guitar playing.

For me, success has already been achieved because I have a beautiful wife, four amazing sons who have grown up to be generous and loving young men, and a very fulfilling work in a completely other industry! I compose music because I enjoy it. I’ll be a happy and satisfied man if someone enjoys the song, can relate to the lyrics, and remembers it the following day!
