What in the world is going on with Armie Hammer? The shocking story!

I think most movie fans know Armie Hammer like how I used to know him before writing this article; “Oh yes that pretty boy from The Social Network who played a homosexual role in Call Me By Your Name, but boy! What a great movie that was”. This is literally all I thought of Armie Hammer before January 2021.

But woah! I need to give you a breakdown as to why the actor has been in gossip tabloids all over the internet in recent months. You will be shocked! Earlier this month he was accused of sending disturbing messages about cannibalism, rape fantasies, having “slaves” and “drinking blood” to a number of women via Instagram direct messenger. These accusations led him to turn down a role in an upcoming movie with Jennifer Lopez.

Furthermore, in a recent exclusive interview with E! News, his most recent ex girlfriend Paige Lorenze detailed her polyamorous open relationship with Hammer, which involved BDSM-related activities in the bedroom. The pair would experience what she called “high protocol nights.” She also claimed that Hammer used BDSM tools like a wooden paddle.; “He would have instruments and use his hands and bite me all over my body.”

I have all the gory details coming up but first just in case you need to refresh your memory, here is a quick wikipedia-like description of Who is Armie Hammer?

Armie Hammer was born in 1986 in Santa Monica California. He began his acting career in 2008 in various television roles in shows such as Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives. But his breakout role that started to make him a “celebrity” was his portrayal of the Winklevoss twins in the 2010 hit film The Social Network about the creation of Facebook. For this role, he won the Toronto Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor. Hammer went on to earn starring roles in films such as The Lone Ranger and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in 2017 he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the romantic drama Call Me By Your Name.

Now onto his personal life which is the purpose of this article. In 2010, Hammer married TV personality Elizabeth Chambers and had two children with her. They announced their separation after ten years of marriage in July 2020, and Chambers has since filed for divorce. They are currently battling for custody of their two young children.

Within the timeframe of their marriage, Hammer did some questionable interviews, including one with Playboy in which he said he was a “dominant lover” before meeting his wife; “I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that,” he told the men’s magazine. “But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better—it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, ‘I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.'”

There was also another eyebrow raising confession to Elle Magazine. He said a sexual partner once tried to stab him while they were having sex; “She was like “true love leaves scars, You don’t have any”, and then she tried to stab me with a butcher knife.”

He then said “Of course I promptly broke up with her, seven months later“.

When asked about these scandalous confessions, he replied “Hindsight is 20/20, do not drink during interviews”.

Now we fast forward to Armie Hammer’s most recent scandal in January 2021.

Numerous messages were posted on the anonymous, and now private, social media account House of Effie purporting to be screenshots of correspondence between Hammer and various women outlining some pretty extreme BDSM fantasies. None of these messages have been verified.

Screenshots were shared of DMs coming from this account between 2016 and 2020. Some messages read “I need to drink your blood and I need your blood”, “I am 100% a cannibal I want to eat you” and describing him “holding her heart in his hands and controlling it with its beats”.

DMS also bring to light allegations of abuse. In a DM he boasted about an encounter in which he held a knife to his partners throat and felt like a God; “You crying and screaming and me standing over you, I have never felt such power and intensity” and “”I’d chase you down and pounce on you so fast if you tried to walk away […] You’ll need something strong to hold me back from you”.

There’s also another DM in which he seems to threaten to behead someone if his wife were to find out.

WTF.

Meanwhile writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez who allegedly dated Hammer in September 2020 weighed in on twitter writing “If you are still questioning whether those Armie Hammer Dms are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims”

Hammer staunchly denied the veracity of the allegations, but decided to step away from his involvement in the production of the upcoming film Shotgun Wedding opposite Jennifer Lopez.

“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”

Furthermore, there was an account called @ElDistracto86, which is now believed to have been the secret account of Armie Hammer. And as Page 6 reported it was filled with questionable posts with everything from bondage memes to a screenshot of a court order mandating that he take a drug test every time before he visits his children in the Cayman Islands where they’ve been living with his ex wife.

He captioned the court order ” All negative B**** My body is a finely tuned toxicant processing unit. To be fair I have THC and benzos in my p***. Who doesn’t?”

He also lamented having to go to the Cayman Islands to see his children. But he said there was one silver lining, he could hook up with a woman he called “Miss Cayman Island”. According to Page 6, this statement was accompanied by a racy photo of a lady which prompted the actual Miss Cayman Islands association to say they were very disturbed and that the woman Hammer was referring to was not the actual reigning Miss Cayman Island.

And THAT was when Armie Hammer seemed to acknowledge his ownership of the account. He told Cayman Compass “I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private instagram, is not Miss Cayman. “I am genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humour may have caused. My deep sympathies to Miss Cayman, who I don’t know, and to the entire organisation, as I had no intentions of implying she was actually Miss Cayman.”

Later in January 2021 he tweeted about an odd physiotherapy lesson he learned “The human body is crazy. When you hurt your body, sometimes the best medicine is just to have another human body rub their human body on yours”

And then last but not least, his ex Paige Lorenze has come forward describing their BDSM evenings.

Paige is pictured above with Armie Hammer and his mother on Thanksgiving day in 2020.

She described their “high protocol nights”; “”It’s like a very traditional thing in BDSM, apparently, to call it high protocol where you have to show up at a certain time, and there are certain rules and stuff,” she explained. “Our first high protocol night, which is what he called it, I was in a lot of pain and it was scary, but I just felt like that was a part of what it was.”

While Paige said she “didn’t say no” to Armie’s BDSM requests and the acts were consensual, she wanted to bring awareness to the practices and remind other women in similar situations that they are not alone.

Armie’s legal team released a statement to E! News. “These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue, any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, 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.”

So this is what’s happening right now with Armie Hammer, say it with me… DAMN.
