Witherspoon Employs Troubled Brother
Reese Witherspoon is so determined to forgive her brother JOHN - who has just completed two years' probation for sexual assault - she has given him a job. The Legally Blonde actress believes employing him as her assistant on the set of new movie OUR FAMILY TROUBLE is the perfect way to help him move on. But Witherspoon's husband RYAN PHILLIPE is reportedly not so sure. A friend of Witherspoon says, "Ryan is seething. He doesn't like John." John Witherspoon pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary and sexual battery after his arrest in 2002. He was accused of sneaking into a neighbour's house and drunkenly molesting her as she slept.
