Ella Evans has requested a temporary restraining order against her 49-year-old father and Bianca, 29, in the wake of what she says was an ugly domestic incident at their home 

The teenager (seen right with her sister and their mother) alleges that Bianca left her with a ‘bruise on her arm’ and a ‘bump on her head’ after ‘slamming a door on her’ on May 26

Ella, whose parents are currently embroiled in a dramatic custody battle over her and her sister Elsie, then alleges that she tried to flee the property and that Bianca ‘slammed the door on her head’ as she attempted to leave. 

‘On Friday, May 26, 2023, I was at the West Hollywood Police Station which is where my parents make custody exchanges,’ Ella states. 

‘My father picked me up, and he eventually drove me and my sister to his apartment for our overnight [stay]. 

‘I saw that my dad’s girlfriend, the Respondent, was at the apartment. I had known of the Respondent, but I had never met her before. I was so mad at my dad because this was an overnight visit, and I had told him in the past that I didn’t want to meet his girlfriend who was now his live-in girlfriend.’

Ella goes on to claim that she was ‘so upset’ with her father that she ‘threw milk on his bed, poured mustard on the floor, and threw raw oatmeal on him’.  

In response, she says her father and Bianca ‘called her “manipulative”, “abusive” and “narcissistic”‘.

After the stand-up row, Ella ‘decided she couldn’t be in that apartment anymore’ and attempted to leave – claiming that Bianca ‘tried to block her’ by ‘raising her arms’. 

‘I was able to make my way around her, and I opened the door,’ the document continues. ‘I was able to walk halfway out the door, but while I was still in the door frame, the Respondent slammed the door on me, causing the door to hit me on the head as well as my arm. My arm got bruised, and I had small bump on my head.’

The restraining order request includes a declaration from Ella in which she recounts a row that she says took place at her father’s home, claiming that he and Bianca called her ‘abusive’ and ‘narcissistic’ after she ‘threw milk on his bed’ and ‘raw oatmeal on him’

The filing includes images of bruises on Ella’s arm and hand, which she says she sustained during the altercation. 

According to Ella, she was able to make her way out of the apartment and she says she ‘tried to run down the stairs’ while her father chased after her. 

‘My dad caught up with me and he was trying to stop me from leaving, and trying to grab me, and I kept dodging him. I kept screaming, “Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me!”‘ she recounts. 

‘I was able to get away, and I ran outside with my sister [nine-year-old Elsie].’ 

Ella says that Ioan ran after his daughters and ‘eventually caught up to them’, alleging that she ‘yelled at him, “Your girlfriend slammed a door on me!” to which he responded, “No she didn’t, no she didn’t, stop lying.”‘

The teenager states that she phoned her nanny, Gloria Flores, who made arrangements for the father of one of Elsie’s friends – a man named Dennis Hauk – to pick them up.  

‘My dad and Dennis agreed that Dennis would drive me and my sister to my mother’s house, and my father would follow behind,’ she continues. 

The following day, she says that her mother, Alice, saw the bruise on her arm and made the decision to call the Beverly Hills police, who referred them to the precinct in West Hollywood, where the alleged incident occurred. 

Ella is requesting that the court grant her a five-year restraining order against Bianca, which would prevent the actress from going within 100 yards of the teen, her sister, their home, their schools, and their vehicle. 

She is also asking that the court orders Bianca to pay her lawyer’s fees. 

The temporary restraining order has not yet been granted and will be put before a court on June 23. 

Ella’s account of the shocking incident marks the latest dramatic development in a bitter domestic drama that began in 2021, when Ioan walked out on his then-wife Alice after a 14-year marriage. 

Ioan, the British star of The Fantastic Four, and Alice, who is best known for her appearance in 102 Dalmatians, have been fighting a bitter divorce battle ever since.

The actor has already obtained a restraining order against his estranged wife, which prevents her from mentioning him on social media for three years.

Both Ioan and Alice are seeking custody of their daughters, and both claim that they have no money.

Last month the former couple’s $2 million marital home in Los Angeles was sold at Ioan’s request after he said he no longer had the funds to pay for it, forcing Alice and their two daughters to move into a rental property in LA.

Ioan met aspiring actress Bianca in Australia while he was shooting the series Harrow, and she recently moved into his Los Angeles apartment. 

He and Alice announced publicly that their marriage had ended in January 2021 and he went public with his new romance with Bianca in October of that year.

Ioan filed for joint custody of his two daughters last July after Alice filed for sole custody amid their tumultuous divorce battle.

As well as requesting visitation rights, he claimed in his custody filing that Alice had been purposely trying to cut communication between him and his children.

He also petitioned for the girls to attend in-person therapy and reunification therapy via Zoom with him pending court-ordered mediation about custody.

Ioan accused Alice of verbally abusing him during their marriage, and of repeatedly ‘undermining him’ in front of the girls.

‘Alice made fun of my appearance often, making hair-loss comments and telling me I had ”saggy-vagina eyes,”’ court papers read.

He went on to claim that Alice ‘has inflicted serious emotional harm on Ella and Elsie by her statements and by interfering in my relationship with them.’

In March this year, charges that Alice had violated her restricting order were dropped. has contacted representatives for Ioan, Alice, and Bianca for comment.
