Actor Ryan Phillippe is claiming that the ex who has accused him of assaulting her is looking for money and attention.
From Page Six:
Ryan Phillippe says the ex who accused him of assaulting her is looking for money and attention.
Last Thursday, the “Shooter” star, 43, responded to the allegations leveled against him by Elsie Hewitt with a court filing of his own, reports The Blast.
In September, 21-year-old model sued the actor alleging that he physically assaulted her in a drunken rage at his home in early July. Hewitt, who is seeking $1 million, claimed that the actor punched and kicked her and threw her down a flight of stairs during the incident.
According to docs obtained by the website, Phillippe is now claiming he only treated the 21-year-old model with “kindness and respect” and never harmed her. He also alleges that she drunkenly broke into his home on the night in question and is suing him in an attempt to earn some money and further her career.
