This comes after MailOnline exclusively revealed that Ioan successfully obtained a three-year restraining order against estranged wife Alice Evans, which also prohibits him from mentioning her on social media.
The Welsh actor hopes the new sanctions will end the public fallout between the pair, which led to a heated altercation in March 2021 and resulting slang matches threatening to overshadow their respective careers.
Ian previously won a temporary restraining order in February against Ellis, 54, the mother of his two daughters Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight, claiming he was flooded with messages and verbal threats from her.

But on Tuesday, a US judge confirmed that harsher sanctions have been imposed, including a ruling preventing Alice from leaking private text messages from her children.
A source said: ‘Ian had no choice but to fight a legal battle over Alice.
‘She had become increasingly unstable and intended to destroy her career with her character assassinations. They hope this will put an end to it.
Ioan was present inside the LA court to see the domestic violence restraining order, but Alice did not appear.
In new court documents, Ioan claimed that Alice continued to cause her issues and wanted to add additional provisions to the existing restraining order.

She also asked the judge to order Alice not to contact her employer or to make derogatory statements about her to their employers.
In further court documents, Ioan stated that ever since the restraining order was enforced, Alice used her social media accounts to ‘harass, threaten and disturb the peace of both me and my girlfriend, Bianca Wallace’ Is.’

Last month, The Vampire Diaries actress Alice shared a screenshot between Ian and one of his daughters, who is believed to have been asking him to sign paperwork so he could stay at her school — allegations between that he stopped paying his fees.
Alice told her 86,000 Instagram followers: ‘Look – I don’t have money.
‘I quit my career because I wanted the love of my life to have an amazing career and that keeps him away most of the time.
‘And I grit my teeth and I got through it. I missed work ‘oh hell I missed work’ but I didn’t want to go a day without seeing my two incredible girls. So it was the opposite.
Calling out Ioan’s alleged spending habits, she continued: ‘He’s still trying to ruin my name, filling out petition after petition… Dare to say I’m a ‘bad mother- am father?
‘ (Watch his Guardian interview from 2020. Ask my kids. As anyone knows us. After being called a ‘bad parent’ when I left everything for them and couldn’t sleep at night to feed them , check their health, take them to the dentist…. [sic],
Announcement: Ian went public with his actress girlfriend Bianca Wallace in October last year and captioned: ‘Thank you for making me smile again’
‘For those of you who may be wondering ‘well why is he continuing to post on Instagram while his lawyers are taking him down for it?’ But think about it.
‘He’s spending money that should have gone to girls’ education, sports, college, using a lawyer to strangle me.
She wrote, ‘I don’t have this money and neither do I believe in TRO corruption to silence someone when they are trying to speak their mind. ‘He gets to say it. He lies about me being a bad parent (You can’t get further from the truth.)
‘But me? I am threatened with fines, jail for telling my truth about what is really happening. And I only have social media because I can’t afford a lawyer. Isn’t this a microcosm of America rich and poor? I’m likely to go to court to post it. (Another example of the way he treats his children).’
Alice said: ‘He can be commended for doing the right thing. to go through the courts. He can take my kids away from me (good luck with that friend).’
Last month in June, Alice shared a video of daughter Elsie claiming she had ‘absolutely no money for food and bills’.
She wrote: ‘Being threatened, trying to put it all together while completely out of money for food and bills and just found out someone tried to break into our exterior door last night !
‘But it’s all worth it for (and one who doesn’t want to be photographed.’
Ian and Alice met in 2000 on the set of 102 Dalmatians and married seven years later.
The Welsh actor filed for divorce in March 2021, citing irreconcilable differences.
The document, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 1, revealed that the former couple had split on New Year’s Day — a month before they went public with their relationship status.
Ioan went Instagram official last October with a post with new girlfriend Bianca: ‘Thank you for making me smile again.’
Alice reacted angrily, saying: ‘So my husband found out, after two years of telling me that I’m a bad person and I’m not exciting and he doesn’t want to have sex with me anymore. , , I am in a relationship behind my back for three years.
