Reese Witherspoon will testify as a witness in the domestic trial against her ex-husband and former co-star Ryan Phillippe. Radar Online reports that Witherspoon was put on the witness list by Elsie Hewitt, the ex-girlfriend who claims she was attacked and pushed down the stairs by Phillippe in 2017. Phillippe fought against having his ex present, saying that Witherspoon had no relevance to the case. His claim was denied, so Witherspoon will appear in court. Witherspoon and Phillippe are co-parents of Ava, who is 19, and 15-year-old Dean. They divorced in 2007.
