The Truth About Elsie Hewitt’s Relationship with Ryan Phillippe
When news of Ryan Phillippe’s relationship with Elsie Hewitt made it to the public space in April 2017, it was met with condemnation. At the time, Elsie Hewitt, born in 1996, was just heading out of her teenage years while Ryan was in his early 40s. The age difference drew a lot of disapproval.
At the time, it was the second controversial relationship involving the Cruel Intentions star. Before Elsie, he was in a relationship with a law student, Paulina Slagter, for a couple of years before it ended in November 2016. As it turns out, there was more for celebrity followers to worry about than Elsie Hewitt’s age difference with the actor.
Elsie Accused Ryan Phillippe of Assault
Shortly after they reportedly began their relationship in April 2017, Elise Hewitt accused Ryan of assaulting her. She filed a $1 million lawsuit in September 2017, accusing him of assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. In the suit she filed, Elsie claimed that she visited Ryan to get her things from his house, and he physically attacked her and violently threw her down the stairs, yelling at her to get out.
Elsie also claimed that after the incident, she went to the hospital before reporting to the police. She was issued a temporary protective order by the police, which expired a few days after the incident. The protective order required Phillippe to stay 100 yards away from the model. During the case, Elsie Hewitt also claimed that Ryan takes drugs like psychedelic mushrooms, steroids, and cocaine. However, in a statement which he posted on his Twitter handle, Ryan claims that Elsie’s allegations are all false, adding that her $1 million lawsuits were part of her plans to extort money from him.
