HOLLYWOOD actor Armie Hammer has been the subject of intense speculation following reports of his alleged gory bedroom fantasies.
A new documentary, House of Hammer, will air on Discovery+ on September 2, 2022, looking into the dark history of Hammer’s family.
Who is Effie and what did she accuse Armie Hammer of?
On January 10, 2021, an Instagram account called House of Effie shared alleged screenshots of messages between an unknown person and an account that appeared to belong to actor Armie Hammer.
Effie’s last name is unknown, and she said she would reveal only her first name because she feared for her life.
In a 2021 press conference with her lawyer, Gloria Allred, Effie broke down in tears and said: “I met Armie Hammer on Facebook in 2016 when I was 20 years old, I fell in love with him instantly.”
She claimed the Call Me By Your Name Star “abused” her “emotionally, mentally, and physically.”
Effie alleged that Hammer raped her and “repeatedly” slammed her head “against a wall bruising my face.”
Allred later claimed that there are photographs of Effie’s “visible injuries.”
Effie said: “I thought he was going to kill me,” adding that she felt “immense guilt” for not speaking out sooner “because I feel I might have been able to save others from becoming victims.”
The Sun reached out to Armie Hammer’s legal representative for comment but did not receive a response.
Effie said the alleged abuse Hammer inflicted caused her to have suicidal thoughts, and she said: “I just lost interest in living. I just wanted the pain to stop.”
Did Armie Hammer respond to the allegations?
Variety reported that Hammer denied Effie’s rape allegation and maintains that the relationship was consensual.
Hammer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, released a statement to PageSix, saying: “[Effie’s] own correspondence with Mr. Hammer undermines and refutes her outrageous allegations.
“As recently as July 18, 2020, [Effie] sent graphic texts to Mr. Hammer telling him what she wanted him to do to her.”
The statement continued: “Mr. Hammer responded by making it clear that he did not want to maintain that type of relationship with her.
“It was never Mr. Hammer’s intention to embarrass or expose [Effie’s] fetishes or kinky sexual desires, but she has now escalated this matter to another level by hiring a civil lawyer to host a public press conference.
“With the truth on his side, Mr. Hammer welcomes the opportunity to set the record straight.
“From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.
“[Effie’s] attention seeking and ill-advised legal bid will only make it more difficult for real victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve.”
The Los Angeles Police Department has “launched a sexual assault investigation over the allegations of rape and assault and assault made against the actor Armie Hammer,” Sky News reporter Greg Milam tweeted.
Hammer continues to deny Effie’s rape allegation, maintaining that their relationship was consensual.
Hammer’s aunt, Casey Hammer, will appear in the House of Hammer documentary and says she “was not surprised or shocked” when the allegations came out.
“You don’t just wake up one day and become a monster,” Casey told Insider.
“It’s a learned behavior and again, that’s why I wasn’t shocked by a lot of what was happening.”
Hammer has not been charged with any crimes, but Greg Risling, a spokesman for the LA County District Attorney’s Office, told PageSix: “A specially assigned prosecutor is working with law enforcement as they continue their investigation.
“Once law enforcement has completed their investigation and submits the case to our office we will conduct an evaluation and file criminal charges that are supported by the evidence.”
What are the cannibal allegations against Armie Hammer?
On January 10, 2021, Hammer was trending on Twitter after a series of graphic Instagram DMs he allegedly sent to a woman were leaked publicly.
The messages weren’t verified, so Twitter users claimed the screen grabs were fake.
The alleged messages included graphic accounts of sex acts and talks of cannibalism, with one message purportedly from Hammer saying: “I am 100% a cannibal.”
In addition to the House of Effie account, it was reported that Hammer allegedly used a burner account on Instagram with the handle @el_destructo_86, to post more personal photos of his daily life.
The profile showed pictures of an alleged court order requiring Hammer to take a drug test before seeing his ex, Elizabeth Chambers, and their two children.
Speaking about the test, he allegedly wrote, “All negative, b**es. My body is a finely tuned toxicant processing unit. To be fair I had THC and benzos in my piss. But who doesn’t.”
“Divorce is so fun. Not as fun as drugs. But what is.”
What did Armie Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze say about him?
Hammer’s ex, Paige Lorenze, claimed he sent nude photos of her “tied up” to his pals and carved the letter ‘A’ into her skin above her pubic bone before licking the bloody wound and “bragging” about it to his friends.
Paige spoke exclusively to The Sun about how he allegedly kept mannequins in his basement to practice tying up women and talked about wanting to strangle his dog.
The 23-year-old claims he was obsessed with “meat, bones, and veins,” and wanted her to be proud of the bruises she sustained as a result.
She added: “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. I was also emotionally dependent on him.”
Courtney Vucekovich alleged that he told her he wanted to “break and eat her ribs.”
Courtney alleged that she felt as if she had been groomed by the actor and needed to undertake a 30-day intensive course of therapy for trauma and PTSD to deal with the repercussions after their breakup in early October.
