Ryan Phillippe’s ex girlfriend, Elsie Hewitt, has filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing him of beating her. According to TMZ:

Elsie Hewitt claims in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, on July 4th, she went to pick up things from his house and she realized he was extremely drunk. She says after she tried talking with him he attacked her, grabbed her upper arm so hard it left heavy bruises and violently threw her down the stairs as hard as he could.

She claims he continued his assault and picked her up like a doll and threw her down the stairs again. He then screamed, “Get the f*** out of my house you crazy c**t.”


Lordy. Hewitt went to the hospital following the alleged assault, where police took a report and issued her an order of protection. Her injuries included chest wall pains, abrasions and severe bruising.

The million dollar lawsuit also alleges that Phillippe abuses cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms and steroids.



Beautiful people Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman celebrated their one year anniversary at the Emmys last night, artfully commemorated in a set of Instagram photos.

Sweet, but not overly barf-y. I’m into it! And what do you have for us, Karl?


Matched in both taste and brevity. Good work, team. Not to rush you but please have a baby so I can watch its magnificent cheek bones develop.

I’ve always thought Zoe Kravitiz was the perfect hybrid of her gorgeous parents. But it’s insane how she morphes into Lisa Bonet a little more everyday.
