PRIVATE TEXTS REVEALED
Reese Witherspoon is bracing for intimate communications with her ex-husband to be spilled in public – after a court ordered Ryan Phillippe to turn them over!
Ryan, 44, is being sued for $1.4 million by another ex, Elsie Hewitt, who claims he assaulted her and threw her down some stairs last year. The actor in turn has alleged that she broke into his house that night.
Now Reese, 42, has been swept up into the drama, , after the j judge g in the case ordered text messages between her and Ryan to be submitted.
“Her worst nightmare has come true,” an insider tells NW, adding that the actress is beside herself and dreading the prospect of being dragged into the whole thorny situation as a witness.
“Jim [Toth, Reese’s second hubby] is standing by her, but the strain is really taking a toll,” adds our source. “She adores Ryan and wants to help [him out], but hates the fact she’s now dragged into this sordid mess.”
Indeed, Reese and Ryan – who was sanctioned over $2000 by the judge for not turning the text messages in sooner – have remained amicable as they continue co-parenting their kids Ava, 19, and Deacon, 15.
“You have to get to that point as a divorced parent, as any parent, where you’re not putting yourself first,” says Ryan.
