Armie Hammer, the once highly praised Hollywood star known for his wicked good looks and beautiful life with estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two children, has fallen from grace after the shocking allegations of his twisted, hidden fantasies of cannibalism and bondage made headlines.
Following the bombshell revelations in recent months, his former flame Paige Lorenze — who was the first of his exes to speak out against him and his alleged violent sexual predilections — claimed that Hammer was broke during their short romance and that she paid for "everything," since the actor was just getting by on loans from his friends, according to a new exposé in Vanity Fair.
Hammer and Lorenze's romance began last September after he and Chambers called off their 10-year marriage in July.
However, the blonde beauty eventually broke things off with Hammer after “he started making rules for me of things I could and couldn’t do, who I could have over, who I couldn’t," she claimed. "He told me that I couldn’t have anyone else in my bed. And then I just started to feel really unsafe and really sick to my stomach about things."
Lorenze ended their relationship in December over text "because you never know what you’re going to get with him — he’s kind of a scary person." During their tumultuous romance, Lorenze claimed he used a knife to carve the letter “A” above her pubic area and introduced her to BDSM.
Lorenze first came forward about Hammer's twisted fantasies after his alleged messages about cannibalism went viral.
As OK! previously reported, the stomach-churning scandal began in January, when the Instagram account House of Effie leaked DMs allegedly sent from the 34-year-old to an unidentified women. In the disturbing unverified messages, Hammer allegedly detailed graphic sexual fantasies.
After the messages leaked, several woman who had dated Hammer came forward with similar allegations against the Rebecca actor.
"He was talking about finding a doctor to remove my ribs that I don't need — the ribs that are on the bottom — and that he had a smoker at his house. He wanted to smoke them and eat them. He wondered how they would taste and he basically was like, 'I bet you they would taste good,'" Lorenze told Fox News. "I think he really has a desire to hurt women."
"He said he wanted to find a doctor that would remove my ribs,” she added. “He was telling me you can remove the bottom rib so he could smoke them, cook them and eat them. He kept saying, ‘You don’t need them.’”
Courtney Vucekovich brought forward the idea that Hammer apparently wanted to chomp on her bones: "He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it," adding, "He says, I want to take a bite out of you. If I had a little cut on my hand he’d like suck it or lick it."
She also told Page Six that Hammer wanted to "break my rib and barbecue and eat it."
Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, who was also linked to Hammer, did not share her experiences with him but said she believes the messages are "real."
Hammer initially refused to respond to the "b****it claims," and his team denied the allegations as "patently untrue," adding that any interactions with sexual partners were "completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory."
"The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation, and communications from the individuals involved prove that," Hammer’s attorney Andrew Brettler previously said.
The actor was subsequently dropped by his agency William Morris Endeavor (WME) and exited the upcoming Paramount+ spin-off series about the making of The Godfather, The Offer. He also stepped down from his role in Shotgun Wedding, which was reportedly passed over to Josh Duhamel.
Hammer’s ex-wife broke her silence on January 29 about the allegations earlier this week. "Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know," she posted on Instagram. "I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal. At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter."
In January 2021, he was in another scandal when he allegedly posted a photo of a lingerie-clad woman on his private Instagram account and called her "Miss Cayman."
Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee denounced the video, insisting that the woman in the photo had nothing to do with their organization.
"On January 15, 2021, the RCIPS received an allegation of misuse of ICT in relation to a suggestive video which had been posted on social media. Officers investigated the matter and spoke to the suspect, who was warned about his conduct, in accordance with the wishes of the complainant," the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service stated.
"My deep sympathies to Miss Cayman, who I don’t know, and to the entire organization as I had no intentions of implying she was actually Miss Cayman," Hammer said.
