Ryan Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend, Elsie Hewitt, is suing him in civil court saying he grabbed her by the arm, struck her, and shoved her down the stairs twice. The Blast reports she filed a motion in court to compel Phillippe to turn over requested documents and photos, including all communication, specifically texts, between him and his ex-wife Reese Witherspoon regarding an alleged assault. The motion claims Phillippe is refusing to turn over requested documents.
Hewitt also wants all documents regarding his physical training routine in 2017, as she believed he was in a rage caused by abuse of steroids. Hewitt has accused Phillippe of abusing cocaine, ecstasy and psychedelic mushrooms, and she wants messages she had previously sent him warning to cut back on his drug use and drinking turned over, as well.
Phillippe claims to have always treated her with "kindness and respect," and he refutes her assault allegations.
