Ryan Phillippe Slapped With Sanctions by Judge for Again Refusing to Turn Over Texts in Ex-Girlfriend's Assault Lawsuit

By TheBlast Staff

Ryan Phillippe has once again been ordered to pay up to his ex-girlfriend in the assault lawsuit she brought against the actor after he allegedly refused once again to turn over evidence to her.

On December 28, a Los Angeles judge ordered Phillippe to turn over all communications between him and any third party about the alleged assault, which he has failed for months to do.

He will have to turn over all social media posts he made about the incident as well.

As a result of him not turning over the messages by the deadline, Phillippe was ordered to pay his ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt’s lawyers $790.

Phillippe has been sanctioned in the case previously for not turning over texts’ messages between him and his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon.

As The Blast first reported, Elsie Hewitt sued the actor for $1 million accusing him of assaulting her at his Los Angeles home. She claimed after an argument with the actor, she went to his house to get her belongings.

Once she arrived, 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.

He claimed to have only treated her with “kindness and respect” during their relationship and never physically harmed her.
