According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend, Elsie Hewitt, is firing back at his attempt to prevent the jury from hearing evidence.
Phillippe is being sued by his Hewitt over an alleged assault at his home. He denies the allegations and claims self-defense. The two are heading to trial on October 15.
In newly filed court documents, Hewitt asks a judge to shut down Phillippe’s attempt, to prohibit talk of his alleged prescription and recreational drug use during the trial.
Hewitt argues the assault was “fueled in significant party by his drug, alcohol and steroid abuse, causing him to suffer tremendous mood swings and bouts of uncontrollable anger and physical aggression.”
The model wants to grill Phillippe about the topics in court. Phillippe has sought to ban any evidence on the topics from being shown to the jury.
