Playboy model Elsie Hewitt has accused ex-boyfriend and Shooter star Ryan Phillippe of assaulting her earlier this year.

The alleged incident occurred on July 4th and Hewitt filed a $1 million lawsuit against Phillippe claiming assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The documents obtained by E! News claim Philippe kicked, punched and threw her down a flight of stairs during a fight. The documents claim that during the fight Hewitt gathered her things to leave his house and that, “Phillippe reacted by attacking Hewitt. He grabbed Hewitt’s upper arm so tightly that his grip left heavy bruises on her arm hours later. He then braced his body and violently threw her down his staircase as hard as he could.”

The claims continue, “When Hewitt finally made it back to the top of the second staircase to pick up her belongings, Phillippe repeatedly grabbed Hewitt, struck her, cornered her, kicked her, and aggressively pushed her to the ground.”

There has been no restraining order presently implemented but there was an emergency protective order put in place which was eventually terminated a few days after the incident.

Philippe and Hewitt were first spotted together at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April. Philippe is most famously noted for his relationship with Reese Witherspoon whom he was married to from 1999-2007 and shares daughter Ava and son Deacon.
