Cape Town - The ex-husband of Emmy-award winning actress Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe has been accused of domestic assault by a former girlfriend!

Elsie Hewitt, a 21-year-old model, claims the Shooter star beat her up in July after she went to pick up some things from his home.

She says the 43-year-old, who she’d been dating for around four months, was “extremely drunk” and assaulted her.

She is now seeking over $1 million in damages for the assault that left her with chest pain, bruises and cuts. In court documents the former Playboy model states Ryan threw her violently down the stairs. She also claims he uses an array of drugs including cocaine and ecstasy as well as steroids.

However sources close to Phillippe - who divorced Reese with whom he has two children in 2007 - say it was the other way around, that Elsie was drunk and physically attacked the star. And that her injuries were caused when she fell while being escorted off the premises.

“Ryan did not lay a hand on her. He wants to clear allof this up and he will,” said a source close to the star.
