Ryan Phillippe Settles Assault Lawsuit With Ex-Girlfriend, Days Before Reese Witherspoon Was Set To Testify

Ryan Phillippe Settles Assault Lawsuit With Ex-Girlfriend, Days Before Reese Witherspoon Was Set To Testify

Ryan Phillippe has reached a settlement with his ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt, who sued him in 2017 for allegedly kicking, punching and throwing her down the stairs.

Phillippe informed the court of the settlement in papers filed on Thursday, PEOPLE confirms. This brings the case to a close just days before a trial was set to start on Oct. 15. Phillippe’s attorneys state Oct. 4 as the day of the settlement. The case is set to be officially settled in January 2020.

Hewitt was 21 when she filed a civil suit in September 2017 against Phillippe, then 43, claiming he got violent after the pair had a fight in July 2017.
In court documents obtained by PEOPLE at the time, the model claimed that after a party that Phillippe had left because he was“being ignored [by Hewitt]”, she went to Phillippe’s house with a friend to pack up her things in the early hours of July 4, 2017, and a physical altercation ensued.

A spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed to PEOPLE that officers made a report into the alleged attack and granted Hewitt an emergency protective order. The order expired July 12, 2017.

However, a source close to the actor told PEOPLE at the time that “Ryan did not lay a hand on her. He wants to clear all of this up and he will.”

Phillippe, 45, later vehemently denied the allegations, both in a statement via his rep obtained by PEOPLE and on Twitter, where he wrote that he was “saddened and disgusted” by the accusations.

“Domestic violence is a very real and tragic issue faced by many women the world over and should never be used to vengefully slander or as a ploy for monetary gain,” he said.

“This is wrong. This is not who I am. Every one of my accuser’s allegations are false.”
Authorities closed the criminal investigation into the matter in September 2017.
“The City Attorney’s Office has deferred this matter following an investigation by the LAPD,” Frank Matelian, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office, told PEOPLE. “After a thorough review, the matter was set for a City Attorney office hearing, during which both parties were present, detailed the incident, were advised on the law and given guidance as to how to avoid similar incidents in the future. No further action has been scheduled following our office hearing.”

Reese Witherspoon will testify in Ryan Phillippe trial

Reese Witherspoon will testify in Ryan Phillippe trial

Reese Witherspoon will testify in her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe’s civil trial on domestic violence allegations.

The ‘Cruel Intentions’ actor is being sued for $1 million by his former girlfriend Elsie Hewitt, who alleged that in July 2017, he hit, kicked and punched her, picked her up “like a doll” and “threw [her] down a flight of stairs” and after he denied her allegations, the case will go to court next month.

According to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, Reese – who has Ava, 20, and Deacon, 15, with Ryan, as well as Tennessee, six, with current husband Jim Toth – is scheduled to give evidence at some point during the trial, which will begin on 15 October.

Earlier this week, court documents were revealed in which the 45-year-old actor – who also has Kai, eight, with former partner Alexis Knapp – claimed he was defending himself against Elsie.

The pair had gone to a party in Malibu, California, though Ryan didn’t want to, and the ‘Shooter’ star ended up leaving early and going home with another female companion.

Ryan was later awakened by loud noises after Elsie allegedly came into his house with a female friend at 2.30am and he grew concerned for the safety of his companion when she confronted him outside the bedroom.

The documents stated: “Phillippe was very concerned about the safety of his female house guest present in his bedroom, especially with a loud, angry, inebriated, and jealous Hewitt sensing another girl in Phillippe’s bedroom.

“Phillippe attempted to block Hewitt’s blows to his body, and frantically tried to impede Hewitt’s progress toward the bedroom.”

The actor insisted he never pushed Elsie down the stairs and claimed he picked her up and carried her to the staircase but slipped, causing her to fall back into his arms.

Ryan previously launched a lawsuit of his own against Elsie – who he dated from April to July 2018 – in response to her accusation he was violent towards her following an argument, in which he slammed the Guess model’s version of events as being completely “fabricated”, as he has claimed she broke into his home in a bid to “extort money”.

Ryan also claimed that Elsie was “extremely intoxicated” during the encounter.

The star feels “sickened” by the “false” domestic violence accusations made against him because he grew up around women and was an advocate for women’s rights.
