Ryan Phillippe‘s ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt filed a lawsuit on Monday alleging he kicked her, punched her and threw her down a flight of stairs.

Hewitt, 21, claimed in the suit that the actor “grabbed upper arm so tightly that his grip left heavy bruises on her arm hours later. He then braced his body and threw her down his staircase as hard as he could.”

However, a source close to the 43-year-old actor tells People, “Ryan did not lay a hand on her. He wants to clear all of this up and he will.”
