Ryan Phillippe's Ex

Lawyers Up

3/18/2011 8:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Phillippe's ex/alleged baby mama has lawyered up ... and a legal battle is now brewing ... TMZ has learned. 

0318-knapp-kaplan-ex-getty

Alexis Knapp -- the model/actress who claims to be carrying Ryan's baby -- has hired Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Ryan has said he'll take a DNA test once the baby is born and support the child if it's his, but Alexis is not satisfied.

And here's a fun fact.  Kaplan repped K-Fed in his divorce/custody battle with Britney Spears.

My God, what an awful young woman. Yet another predatory snot that smells money. He has owned up and offered a DNA test even stating he would wait until the baby is born because the test puts it and mom at risk. He's already paid some bills and she lies and said no, he has not.

This is one terrible young and immature woman.

She's an embarrassment to women it's not just guys I'm a girl and find this stuff degrading these women want an easy life at the guys expense. Here's a thought get an education and than get a job so you don't have to depend on a man and can hold your head up high my father taught me that and I'm sticking to it. He's stepping up that's enough have some pride women!

Herpes
AIDS
Crabs
Syphilis
Hepatitis
Gonorrhea

Normally, I'm on the guy's side on a lot of these but this one...not so much. They dated for a year or so and now the guy is asking for a paternity test? Don't blame him for that, however, if he was screwing around while they were together, that would be the first thing he would assume of her, true or not. So I'm thinking he's an a**. He was more than willing to sleep with her. What do you guy's think, anyway? Every single time you have sex with a woman, there is risk of pregnancy. After all...that is what the act is for so why is everyone so surprised?

what more can he be doing for her?? Honestly, what else does she want from this guy?

He's paying her prenatal care & expenses, despite not knowing for sure if the baby is his yet (better than most people would do)and says he will support her after birth if it is his child.

If I was the momma...I'd be pretty satisfied with that arrangement. Sounds a bit greedy to me, unless we're not privy to other details going on.

They shared a bed occasionally from June-October of 2010, which is on imdb. They didn't date: she was a girl he was screwing non-exclusively for a few months. One could wonder what Ryan expected to happen when a 35 year old man starts sleeping with a 20 year old girl?

And guys out there saying modern women and "95% of American women" are like this - yes, sadly, many of them are. But it's a shame to group all of us like this. I despise the fact that these women give the rest of us a bad name. A lot of us women, even in the "younger generation" are not like this, and would never consider these actions. Just like some guys step up to the plate like Ryan Phillipe who's not even sure it's his yet...and he's man enough to still pay her expenses...there are also guys who would abandon the situation asap. I think it just comes down to how you were raised, and how you treat other human beings...especially those you chose to have a sexual relationship with.

Best thing that could ever happen, since she's a model/actress, and if she's actually worked, I hope the judge says, yes, the child is Ryan's, how much did you make last year? Take into consideration she's made how much, divide that by 12 and give her exactly what she made a month for the kid. If it's 1,000 a month, so be it. That's all she gets from Ryan.

If you don't think Oksana Griegorieva has set the standard for Hollywood, watch how this one unfolds and see how many more of these broads come out of the woodwork with like stories.

What is up with all these idiots who can not keep control of their sperm? Another idiot too stupid to use condoms or maybe he thinks his sperm is so super it can avoid the eggs.

Too bad, Ryan should have stuck to an "Anal Sex Only" policy...

He should have used condoms. That said, I hope it's not his baby, and that she has a Plan B.

What a bitter bunch of people you all are. First of all, none of us has any first-hand knowledge of this particular situaiton. But what I love is all of the men blaming this woman for getting pregnant in the first place. "She could stop taking her pills and not tell us," and blah blah blah. If you guys are so worried about being taken advantage of my some "money grubbing whore" then STOP HAVING SEX! MORONS!
