If Mr. Phillippe is such a feminist why did his ex-girlfriend seek a restraining order? This pleasing is amateur hour but the defense doesn’t have anything to work with here.

She has hospital records documenting her injuries. The police took a report of the assault and issued a restraining order. Her employer Paul Marciano at Guess can confirm her injuries as can her friend who witnessed the assault.

The City Attorney is investigating filing charges. She has not felt the need to get an additional restraining order. She rejected his overture to get back with him and since then he has not doing anything to necessitate seeking an additional restraining order. She texted him before coming to his house. She had the password to enter his house-he gave it to her. He was the one under the influence not Ms. Hewitt. She was the one who broke up with him. She has a witness that was present when he battered her. The witness saw him physically grab her and toss her down the stairs like a rag doll. The claim she tripped and fell is false and belied by the bruises on her body as well the witness.”
