Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evan's daughter LOSES restraining order bid
EXCLUSIVE – Revealed: Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evan’s teenage daughter LOSES bid for domestic violence restraining order against her father – as actor’s friends say he’s ‘very relieved’ by the outcome
The teenage daughter of Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans has lost her bid for a domestic violence restraining order against him.
On Thursday a judge at the Los Angeles Superior Court dismissed an application by Ella, 13, after she filed documents on May 31.
Mr Gruffudd was present in court, along with Ms Evans for the hearing, as well as the lawyer appointed as the minor’s counsel last month.
The judge ruled: ‘The minor’s request for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order against the Petitioner is hereby dismissed without prejudice.’
The decision comes three weeks after the teenager’s bid to get a civil protection order against Mr Gruffudd’s actress girlfriend Bianca Wallace, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was also denied.

They also say that the situation is a ‘nightmare’ but they are ‘happy to see some progress’ with the situation.
Last month the judge also appointed a minors counsel – a lawyer appointed by the court to represent the best interests of the child – to act for Ella and her younger sister Elsie, nine.
The case, which has been played out in public, has gripped the showbusiness world since the Welsh heart-throb left 102 Dalmatians star Ms Evans in 2021 after a 14-year marriage.
Last month, Mr Gruffudd, 49, filed court documents that accused Ms Evans of setting up fake Twitter accounts to brand him and Ms Wallace ‘child abusers’.
He also claimed that Ms Evans screamed at him outside his Los Angeles home and called him a ‘f***ing abuser’ and ‘abusive c***’ in front of Ella.

Mr Gruffudd also said that Ms Evans on one occasion accused him of ‘taking away my kids’, called him a ‘f***ing p***y’ and ‘evil’, called his mother a c***’ – and told Ella she did not want to see her for a few days, yelling: ‘The babies can stand up for me or they can f*** off’.
In addition, he alleged that Ms Evans told him: ‘I’m going to tell my lawyer that you punched me last week. It’s going to be like Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. It’s not going to end well for you.’
Gruffudd also claimed Ella poured milk over his and Wallace’s bed and wrote ‘f**’ with a mustard bottle, as well as squirting it over the kitchen counter and floors.
He already has a restraining order out against his estranged wife, which prevents her from mentioning him on social media for three years.
Both are seeking custody of the children.
