Reese Witherspoon has to testify next month in the case of her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. He is accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt, reports The Blast.

Elsie claims that the 44-year-old Cruel Intentions actor threw her down the stairs in 2017 during a fight. Elsie wants Reese to tell her story about her ex-husband, with whom she was married from 1999 to 2007 and with whom she had two children. The 43-year-old actress may therefore be questioned about Ryan’s behavior during their marriage.

To prevent details about his marriage to Reese from being discarded, Ryan tried to convince the judge last month to leave the actress outside the court case. But the judge did not agree, so the blonde just has to show up on 15 October. Just like Ryan’s other ex-girlfriend Paulina Slagter, by the way.
