Danny Masterson and his wife Bijou Phillips have been attracting a lot of attention for years. Now, Phillips is standing by Masterson’s side even though he could be sent to jail for the rest of his life.

Bijou Phillips began her modeling career when she was only 13 years old but quickly succumbed to the life of excess that often comes with fame and success in the entertainment industry.

As a teenager, she was already addicted to drugs, just like her father, John Phillips, vocalist of The Mamas and the Papas. Eventually, Bijou listened to John and got sober by the time she was 21.

JOHN AND MACKENZIE’S ALLEGED RELATIONSHIP

In 2002, she told The Guardian that her drug addiction was the result of her life circumstances. When she was 14, she already had her own apartment in NYC, got invited to nightclubs, and had money and a car service always available.

However, her substance addiction was only one of her problems. In 2009, Bijou and her half-sister Mackenzie Phillips made headlines after the latter admitted to having an incestuous relationship with her father.

In a tell-all book titled “High on Arrival,” Mackenzie wrote that the first time she remembers sleeping with her father was the night before she married Rolling Stones’ Jeff Sessler.

She admitted they were both high on drugs at the time. Eventually, that relationship became consensual and continued for ten years, Mackenzie said.

Bijou Phillips' sister, who asked people not to hate her father for what he did, also revealed that John introduced her to cocaine when she was only ten years old.

DEFENDING JOHN

John passed away in 2001, so he couldn’t defend himself. Two of his former wives, however, denied Mackenzie’s claims. Michelle Phillips, who divorced John in 1970, said:

“Mackenzie’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years. [...] She did 'Celebrity Rehab,' and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed.”

Genevieve Waite, John’s third wife, also defended the late musician. She said that no matter how high or drunk, John was “incapable” of having sexual relationships with his children.

As per Danny Masterson’s wife, she was only 13 when Mackenzie told her about her and John's alleged consensual relationship. Consequently, she was “heartbroken” that her family could leave her alone with him.

[Masterson] could face a possible maximum sentence of 45 years to life behind bars.

BIJOU PHILLIPS’ ADULT LIFE

Over time, Bijou walked away from her modeling career. She started making music in the late 90s but quickly moved on to acting. The last time we saw her on a TV show was in 2013 in “Hope.”

As per her love life, Bijou Phillips and Danny Masterson, both followers of the Church of Scientology, tied the knot in October 2011. Almost three years later, their daughter Fianna was born.

In 2017, Bijou Phillips attracted a lot of attention after her “Bully” co-star Daniel Franzese accused her of body-shaming and ridiculing his sexuality.

At the time of the incident, he was “scared,” “closeted,” and afraid to lose his job. Still, Bijou wouldn’t stop loudly asking if he was gay. Meanwhile, producers and photographers did nothing to stop her.

Months before Franzese’s accusations, Bijou announced that she needed a kidney transplant because she was born with “small kidneys.” Luckily, a man named Chris Wadhams donated a kidney, and it was “100% successful.”

Nowadays, Bijou Phillips and Danny Masterson are trying to prove the latter’s innocence after being accused of rape by three different women. If convicted of all charges, he could face a possible maximum sentence of 45 years to life behind bars.
