Stephanie Nassar is not standing by her man.

Larry Nassar's wife was nowhere to be seen when the former USA Gymnastics doctor was sentenced to between 40 and 175 years for years of sexual abuse of athletes, and new reports indicate that she was quietly granted a divorce from her husband last year.

On Wednesday, Larry Nassar was in court to hear his sentencing for taking advantage of more than 150 athletes, including gold-medal winners Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman. The coverage has thrust Nassar's family into the spotlight, and reports have indicated that his wife already split from him.

According to a report from InTouch, Stephanie Nassar filed for divorce almost exactly one year ago, filing the papers on January 25, 2017. In July, a judge granted her the divorce and gave her sole custody of the couple's three children together.

Though Stephanie Nassar was not present for her husband's sentencing or court proceedings, there were some who made reference to the family. Trinea Gonczar, who started seeing Nassar when she was 10 or 11 and went to him nearly 800 times, said she felt like family. As MLive noted, Gonczar had been a supporter of Nassar until recently, when she testified in support of the victims and had a very public split with the doctor.

Nassar himself wrote several pages for the judge at sentencing about how the ordeal affected his life, but Judge Rosemarie Aquilina very publicly threw it out at his sentencing. As CNN noted, Nassar had come into conflict with Aquilina during the sentencing, accusing her of running a "media circus" last week.

There is a good chance that Larry Nassar will never see his wife again. The 54-year-old will not be eligible for parole for 99 years.
