Elsie claimed he then attacked her, grabbed her upper arm and left heavy bruises and then violently threw her down the stairs.

She claims he threw her down the stairs again and then screamed, “Get the f*** out of my house you crazy c**t.”

Elsie then went to the hospital and she got a protective order from police.

In the suit, Elsie is looking for more than $1 million. However sources have since told TMZ that Elsie was the one that showed up to his house “drunk”.

“They say she was the one who attacked Ryan and refused to leave his home. He removed her from the premises and he claims she fell and hurt herself,” an insider told the site.

we spend a lot of time on here showing our happiest moments and it’s easy to assume someone’s life is perfect. everyone’s fighting their own battles that they understandably choose not to share. sometimes it’s crazy to me that people show interest in me/my life when I’ve shared so much more of what I’m doing and how I look as opposed to who I really am. I’m a very private person but there are some tribulations I’ve been facing recently so I wanted to say thank u guys for your love, thank you to those who have been there for me, and thank you for those in my life who haven’t, for teaching me a good lesson. I think it’s important to feel all your feelings, both happy and sad in order to overcome and to grow stronger. everyone is on their own path and has their own pain. always get back up, keep trying and stand up for yourself and what you believe in. i’ll keep working hard and working on lifting my spirits ๐Ÿ•Šand if anything, just take this as a positive reminder to be the best and kindest you can be in a struggling world full of enough suffering and hatred. i love u
