Early this week, Hewitt filed a $1 million lawsuit claiming “assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress” according to E! Online.

Cupid’s Advice:

While drama can be interesting from afar, nothing is more draining than being in the center of it. Especially, if the drama is coming from false accusations of an ex! Here a few ways to deal with the crazy drama:

1. Confront your ex: In many situations, rumors can be put to an end by going straight to the source. If your ex is spreading lies and making accusations, your best bet is to approach them and talk it out. Odds are, they will take back what they said and stop talking about you.

2. Let if slide: If the drama and rumors are something minor, you could let it go. Many times, the talk is petty and insignificant enough that no one will even take notice. If it is something you can handle, ignore the drama and move on.
