Armie Hammer Controversy: Check The Full Detail Here

armie hammer controversies

The House of Hammer, a documentary series examining the alleged transgressions of the affluent family of Hollywood star Armie Hammer, will make its debut on Discovery+ on September 2.

Hammer has endured a succession of recurring embarrassments; in 2018, he was nominated for a Golden Globe; in 2021, he was accused of abuse and sexual assault. The new series is the latest in this line of unfortunate events.

What you need to know about Armie Hammer’s story and how one of Hollywood’s most popular movie actors lost his cool is provided below.

About Armie Hammer

The native Californian comes from a prosperous household. Hammer, 36, is named after his great-grandfather Armand Hammer.

According to Forbes, Armie’s namesake gained a $200 million fortune through his business endeavours and involvement in Occidental Petroleum.

According to Armie Hammer’s 2012 interview with Entertainment Weekly, “My entire existence had been this lengthy, pressurised conversation about the family I represented.”

“‘You have to dress well and make sure your hair is brushed.’ When you walk out the door, you represent us.'”

Hammer claimed he was “not supported by (family money) in any way” but claimed his parents “threatened to cut me off” when he revealed plans to leave his Los Angeles high school and become an actor.

He insisted he and then-wife Elizabeth Chambers, founder of Bird Bakery, supported their family on their own. After ten years of marriage, Hammer and Chambers, both 40, divorced in 2020. They have two children, Harper, 7, and Ford, 5.

How the Armie Hammer controversy started

On January 12, 2021, a woman going under the handle @houseofeffie posts on Instagram that she had an affair with Hammer for four years during which time he allegedly sent her violent texts that included references to cannibalism, rape fantasies, and his desire to consume her blood.

She posts a selection of texts and screenshots that she purportedly exchanged with Hammer as well as correspondence from from his other ex-wives.

In one Instagram Story, she says, “Women approached me with their affair stories while we chatted, overcome with sadness, for days and nights without sleeping or eating, with some ending up in the ER.”

According to Courtney Vucekovich, an app founder who claims she dated Hammer in 2020 from June to October, the actor subjected her to emotional abuse, sexual coercion, and made her feel uncomfortable, according to “Page Six.”

“He engaged in certain behaviour with me that I didn’t find comfortable. He persuaded me that these things were OK for some reason, and then he put me in certain risky situations where I was not, where he was intoxicated to a dangerous degree, and where I wasn’t, which alarmed me.

I didn’t feel at ease, adds Vucekovich. She doesn’t vouch for @houseofeffie’s posts as being genuine, but their assertions are comparable.

Armie Hammer: Charged with bodily abuse

Hammer, best known for his part in the 2018 film Call Me By Your Name, was charged in March 2021 with severe rape and bodily abuse committed during their four-year on-and-off relationship by a lady by the name of Effie.

After a nine-month investigation, the LAPD closed the case in December of that same year without filing any charges. Variety claims that Hammer is back in Los Angeles after spending some time marketing timeshares in the Cayman Islands.

However, Effie’s charges were merely the culmination of months of murky rumours and scandal around Hammer, rumours that initially seemed to be more amusing nonsense than possibly illegal and career-ending accusations.

Why Armie Hammer got out of the works

Early news stories tended to focus on the sexy fact that Hammer allegedly had a cannibalism kink when an unidentified Instagram account started leaking what seemed to be his sexts in January 2021.

A casual spectator could have easily assumed that Hammer was handling a low-stakes case of innocent and exciting celebrity rumours at the time.

But as time went on and the women who claimed to have dated Hammer in the past kept posting about their experiences on social media, it became obvious that they were accusing the actor of much worse behaviour than a harmless consensual kink. He was being accused of psychological abuse and manipulation.

In the course of the narrative, Hammer would get fired by his agent, leave a number of unfinished projects, and ostensibly begin a new career as a timeshare salesman.

Hammer was almost completely ignored by the promotional campaign when Death on the Nile, which is probably going to be his last movie, came out in July. His family scandal and own true crime streaming show are now centred around him.

Armie Hammer is a canibal?

According to Hammer’s accusers, he discussed eating their bodily parts.

Vucekovich told Page Six, “He said to me he wants to break my rib, barbeque it, and eat it. If I had a small scratch on my hand, he would either lick it or remark, “I want to take a bite out of you. The weirdest thing we have is that.

In an interview with Vanity Fair for an in-depth profile on Hammer and his ancestry published in March 2021, Lorenze recalled that Hammer “would say things to me…weird stuff…like, ‘I want to eat your ribs’.”

She continued, “The scary aspect of it is that I did love him in a way, and I would’ve kind of let him do anything. He had a control over me.”
