Armie Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze claims she was so traumatized by the short-lived relationship she shared with the actor that she’s been seeing a therapist to process her feelings.
The 22-year-old model, who dated Hammer from August-December, has been very vocal about some of the things she experienced while being romantically involved with Hammer, whom she claimed carved a letter A into her pubic area with a blade in November last year.
While she's explained that their unusual sex games would regularly incorporate knife play, where he would wave the sharp object across her skin, things escalated on one particular night when Hammer allegedly wounded Lorenze. "He told me that he bragged about it to his friends," she revealed.
“I felt like I was letting him down if I said no.”
Soon after the relationship ended last month, the blonde beauty said she struggled to come to terms with some of the things she had to endure during her four-month romance with the father-of-two.
Lorenze explained that when the two called it quits, she suffered from severe psychological damage, having initially blamed herself for allowing the Hollywood star to take advantage by physically hurting her with his bizarre sex antics.
“Consent is really complex, and saying yes to something does not negate the trauma you might be burdened with after the fact,” she said. Lorenze has reportedly been in therapy since her wild affair with the actor.
“I have had to work really hard to come to terms with the fact that I am not responsible for the trauma I experienced.”
Lorenze likewise recalled when Hammer suggested that she have her bottom ribs removed by a doctor so that he could eat them — and according to her, he was “100 percent serious” when he made the outlandish request.
Since the latest cannibalism allegations in the past week, an attorney for Hammer has given a statement to The Sun US, insisting that any assertions about their client are “patently untrue,” adding that the sexual activities that took place were fully discussed and agreed upon.
"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,” the attorney said.
Hammer also denies sending any cannibalism messages or engaging in the acts he’s been accused of, calling the the claims against him “bulls**t.”
Lorenze first spoke to the February 1 print issue of Star magazine.
