Armie Hammer has checked into a rehab facility in Florida where he is countering his issues with drugs, alcohol, and sex. The 34-year-old actor has been under investigation by the LAPD’s crime department for a while.
On May 29, several sources and a witness confirmed that Hammer had been dropped off by his wife Elizabeth Chambers to take a plane to Orlando. The actor entered himself into a rehab center two days later, and has been there ever since, affirmed sources.
Chambers separated from Hammer in July last year after a decade of marriage. She has been living with their two children in Caymans for their schooling during the pandemic. Hammer himself had spent a significant part of his childhood residing on the islands.
In early January, Armie Hammer’s career came to an abrupt halt after an Instagram account published messages from the actor, which detailed his absurd sexual fantasies about cannibalism, rape, and other heinous acts.
After these revelations, the actor stepped down from his role in the “Shotgun Wedding”, starring Jennifer Lopez. In a statement, he cited his “good conscience” as a reason for leaving the film, as he could not bear the thought of leaving his children behind for four months. His part in the film was later essayed by Josh Duhamel.
Armie Hammer remained unfazed at the “bull—claims” made against him and declined to address them. However, the actor’s bubble was broken by two of his ex-girlfriends who spoke out about their experience with “The Social Network” actor.
In an interview with Page Six, Hammer’s ex Courtney Vucekovich referred to a time when the actor allegedly told her about his desire to “break my rib and barbeque and eat it.” Paige Lorenze also spoke to Page Six, where she showed screenshots to the news outlet, detailing her encounter with her then-boyfriend, who wanted to make her his “perfect little slave.”
Following her husband being called out by his ex-beaus, a heartbroken Chambers took to Instagram to voice out her feelings. “I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters,” she wrote on the post.
Just a few days later, Armie Hammer’s agency, William Morris Endeavor dropped him from their list of celebrities. He also refused a role in “The Offer,” a series showcasing the making of “The Godfather.” Although Hammer never addressed these allegations directly, his lawyer Andrew Brettler spoke on behalf of the actor who said the accusations were baseless as all sexual encounters were “discussed and agreed upon in advance.”
