Ryan Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend believes the actor might not remember the night of the alleged attack correctly because of his alleged drug use and claims he’s been dragging his feet on turning over records as part of her lawsuit.
As The Blast first reported, Hewitt sued Phillippe for $1 million accusing him of assaulting her at his Los Angeles home. She claimed Phillippe was extremely agitated, grabbed her upper arm “so tightly that his grip left heavy bruises on her arm” and then “braced his body and violently threw her down his staircase as hard as he could.”
The lawsuit alleged the actor abused drugs like, “cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms, and steroids.”
Ryan Phillippe denied all allegations of assault and accused his ex-girlfriend of trying to extort him with false allegations.
Hewitt recently demanded the actor turn over documents relating to his physical training routine in 2017, his workout schedule and any info relating to any supplements or drugs he takes for his training routine. She also sought all documents relating to his alleged drug and alcohol use during 2017 and all communications of her telling him to reduce his drug use and drinking.
According to new court documents obtained by The Blast, Hewitt claims Phillipe has yet to produce a single document and says she has suffered enough from his repeated failures to follow his discovery obligations.
She claims documents and communications relating to his drug and alcohol use are directly relevant to demonstrate Phillipe’s “ability before, during and after the alleged incident to recollect the incident correctly.” Hewitt says they would also show his “cognition, perception, judgment, and decision-making abilities before, during, and after the incident.”
Hewitt also claims that since Phillipe told a very different story in his response about what happened on the night in question, she finds it necessary to know the answers on his drug and drinking use during the year.
The model wants Phillippe and his legal team sanctioned $3,160 for failing to turn over documents in a timely manner.
The case is ongoing.
