Holley was a prominent member of O.J. Simpson’s “Dream Team” in the 1990s. New York Times bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer alleged that Holley and fellow attorney Robert Kardashian had an affair while working on the case in his book, The Kardashians: An American Drama.

Hewitt, a model who was Playboy’s Miss June 2017, alleged in her court documents that the Cruel Intentions actor was drunk when she went to his house the night of July 4th, and grabbed her arm and threw her down the stairs. “Hewitt attempted to crawl down the stairs in agonizing pain,” the documents filed by Hewitt’s attorney stated. Her bruises were evident on the photos.

Hewitt’s attorney, Keith Fink, told Radar there were “no updates,” in the case after Phillippe hired Holley. He previously told Radar they were not asking for money from Phillippe, and that any amount they were awarded would go to a domestic abuse charity. Hewitt claimed in her court documents that while she was dating Phillippe he was abusing multiple drugs, including: “cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms and steroids.”

Hewitt’s friend allegedly wrote to Phillippe in messages included in her lawsuit documents obtained by Radar. “I saw the whole thing Ryan, you literally were grabbing her and threw her down the stairs and she was crying in front of you on the bottom step while you were calling her a crazy c**t telling her to get the f**k out of your house just to protect your own disloyalty,” Hewitt’s friend wrote to Phillippe in messages included in her lawsuit documents obtained by Radar.

On July 6 an Emergency Protective Order was issued and case was submitted to City Attorney's Office,” the LAPD told Radar.
