Reese Witherspoon at the airport

Reese Witherspoon Jets Out of Town Just As Ryan Phillippe Assault Allegations Surface

Reese Witherspoon jetted from Los Angeles to New York on Monday afternoon, just before allegations of domestic violence against her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, came to light.

Witherspoon was in L.A. for the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, where her show, “Big Little Lies,” took home the award for Outstanding Limited Series.

As The Blast first reported, Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend, Elsie Hewitt, told police that Phillippe assaulted her and threw her down a flight of stairs.  She’s filed a lawsuit seeking over $1,000,000.

Luckily for Witherspoon, all the photogs at the airport asked her about the Emmys, and by the time the news broke she was safely cruising at 39,000 ft.

We’re told Witherspoon has no plans to try and modify her custody situation with Phillippe in the wake of allegations.
