Ryan Phillippe’s ex Elsie Hewitt claims he savagely beat her, files $1 million lawsuit

Ryan Phillippe’s girlfriend Elsie Hewitt has filed a lawsuit accusing the actor of domestic violence and drug abuse.

While a case she made against him was allegedly previously thrown out of court, Hewitt, 21, has filed this new lawsuit and is demanding over $1million.

In the lawsuit, she reportedly claims he abuses ‘cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms and steroids’ and alleges he beat her up.

The Guess model claimed she went to Ryan’s house with a friend to pack up her things after a party which the actor had left earlier after ”being ignored” by her, but a physical altercation ensued.

Legal documents obtained by People magazine state: ”He grabbed Hewitt’s upper arm so tightly that his grip left heavy bruises on her arm hours later. He then braced his body and violently threw her down his staircase as hard as he could.”

Elsie got up and claims she walked back up stairs to get her belongings, but Ryan allegedly ”grabbed Hewitt, struck her, cornered her, kicked her, and aggressively pushed her to the ground.”

The complaint then states the model’s unnamed friend attempted to pull the ‘Cruel Intentions’ star away but couldn’t because of their height differences.

Instead, Elsie alleged her former lover then ”picked [her] up like a doll and tossed her down the stairs a second time”, and that she attempted to crawl down the remaining steps.

She was later admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre and police issued an emergency protective order, but that expired on July 12.

The brunette beauty also claimed she saw Ryan – who she dated from April this year until July – ”repeatedly abusing a panoply of legal and illegal drugs, including without limitation: cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms, and steroids…”.

Her documents added: ”Phillippe increasingly combined these drugs with excessive alcohol consumption and often exhibited symptoms attendant of poly drug and alcohol abuse, including mood swings and bouts of anger.”

Phillippe is telling a completely different story. Sources close to him tell The Blast that Elsie Hewitt showed up to his house uninvited and under the influence on the night in question after he had broken up with her a few days prior.

Our sources say Phillippe says she attacked him and, after causing a scene, refused to leave. We’re told Phillippe claims Hewitt fell and injured herself as she was being removed from the house.
