Ryan Phillippe accused of beating ex

Los Angeles: Actor Ryan Phillippe's ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt has filed a lawsuit against him for allegedly kicking, punching and throwing her down the stairs. Hewitt, 21, filed a civil suit against the actor recently claiming he got violent after the pair had a fight on July 3.

In court documents obtained by people.com, the model claims Reese Witherspoon's ex-husband had left a party earlier after "being ignored (by Hewitt)". She then went to Phillippe's house with a friend to pack up her things in the early hours of July 4 and a physical altercation ensued. According to the complaint, Hewitt's friend, who was not named, attempted to pull the actor away from Hewitt, but could not, due to their differences in stature. The model claims she suffered chest wall pain, abrasions and severe bruising. She is asking for no less than $1 million, which her lawyer Keith Fink says will go to a domestic violence charity, people.com reported. However, a source close to the actor, said: "Ryan did not lay a hand on her. He wants to clear all of this up and he will. It was the model who was under the influence when she landed uninvited at Phillipe's house, physically attacked him, caused a scene and refused to leave his home.
