The Blast reported that Elsie Hewitt got an Emergency Protective Order against Ryan and accused him of physically abusing her on July 4 of this year. He was served with the order two days later.

Elsie, a model, told police the actor "hit," "kicked," "punched," and "threw [Hewitt] down flight of stairs causing visible injuries to legs back, arms, shoulder and face," The Blast reported on Sept. 18.

She also told authorities that Ryan tried getting in contact with her after the alleged incident and she feared that he would cause her more harm.

Ryan and Elsie dated for several months earlier this year, having first been spotted in April together.

Ryan has not publicly commented on the report or the accusation. A few hours after he was served, he cryptically tweeted, "I used to misunderstand things better."

In early July, Elsie also tweeted several cryptic messages, including a note that said, "U know there's something wrong when you'd rather sit in silence than sit there with music." After that, she tweeted that she was completely "completely... broken."
