Bijou Phillips, an American actress and model, has filed for divorce from erstwhile That 70s Show star Danny Masterson after he was convicted of rape.

Masterson and Ms. Phillips have a nine-year-old daughter.

Masterson intends to appeal his two rape convictions, which were handed down by a Los Angeles court on September 7th.

Due to the 2003 offences, he was sentenced to thirty years in prison.

According to the two women whose testimony led to Masterson’s conviction, the actor was at the height of his fame when he gave them beverages that caused them to feel woozy or faint.

They claimed that he then assaulted them violently.

Masterson’s legal counsel intends to file an appeal based on evidentiary and constitutional issues in his case.

Prosecutors retried Masterson this year after a jury deadlocked on all three rape charges in December 2022.

After seven days, a seven-woman, five-man jury found him guilty on two charges on May 31.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were criticised in the days following Masterson’s sentencing when it was revealed they had asked the judge for leniency in the case.

Hydrogen driving: We test the fuel cell Ineos Grenadier

Electric vehicles are the future, and everyone agrees on that. That is the mantra offered to motorists who are encouraged to convert to EVs. However, not everyone agrees that the future of motoring will be entirely dominated by plug-in electric vehicles; some believe hydrogen fuel cells may play an essential role. Ineos, owned by buccaneering boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is already developing a robust 4x4 EV called the Fusilier, but it is also considering hydrogen power.
