After months of denial, Armie Hammer has (belatedly) checked into rehab

CW: This article contains references to sexual assault and violence.

Armie Hammer has finally checked into rehab to treat drugs, alcohol and sex issues following scandalous abuse allegations.

In case you didn’t know, earlier this year, Armie Hammer’s career and marriage died pretty much overnight with the outrageously juicy exposé from House of Effie that Hammer has sadistic and cannibalistic tendencies.

This juicy exposé then inspired other women to come forward in light of similar abuse he inflicted.

Of course, Hammer denied he encroached on any of his sexual partners with cannibalistic tendencies and violence for months, all the while his jobs dropped like flies.

Vanity Fair has reported that Hammer has voluntarily checked into a rehab facility outside Orlando, Florida, on 31 May.

Even more surprisingly, Hammer apparently has support from his family and estranged ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers, who instantly separated from him in 2020 following the exposé.

According to a witness on Instagram, Hammer, who lives in the Cayman Islands, was apparently seen entering Grand Cayman Airport with his ex-wife and two children on May 29.

This witness stated that the goodbyes at the airport appeared to be ‘emotional’.

No comment from Chambers or Hammer has been made that entails his treatment plan.

Although, Hammer insinuated that there would be a focus on his well-being (well, duh) as he announced his resignation from an upcoming Broadway show on April 2nd:

“I have loved every single second of working on ‘The Minutes’ with the family I made from Steppenwolf. But right now I need to focus on myself and my health for the sake of my family. Consequently, I will not be returning to Broadway with production,” is a good and longwinded save from “I got fired.”

If you’re like me, you have been following this absolute disaster of a situation since it emerged in the public sphere earlier this year in January.

The can of worms was opened by one woman who is known on Instagram as House of Effie, who shared disturbing DMs between her and Hammer (from his official Instagram account, what an idiot), while also stating that Hammer said he wanted her ‘caged’ so she could better ‘serve’ him. Most alarmingly,

“I am 100 per cent a cannibal. I want to eat you,” the Hannibal Lecter wannabe apparently said to House of Effie.

However, a lot of people on Twitter have claimed that House of Effie is a liar;

While some people have more profound conclusions to the matter;

House of Effie and Hammer dated while Hammer was still married to Chambers, from 2016-2020.

He’s a tall, generically ‘handsome’ man who comes from a notoriously wealthy oil tycoon family, of course, he was going to be a shameless delinquent with way too much power.

Additionally, Hammer dated model Paige Lorenze revealed similar accounts of abuse of knife play.

Specifically, Hammer carved the letter ‘A’ (how discrete) above her vagina, and also repeatedly requested her to get ribs removed so he could barbecue them.

With this recent news of Hammer’s undetermined stay in rehab, House of Effie made a statement to Vanity Fair via her lawyer Gloria Allred.

“While I am glad that Armie is finally getting the help I begged him to get for so long, this does not take away all of the immense pain and suffering he has caused me,” House of Effie said.
“I tried so hard to justify his actions, even to the point of responding to him in a way that did not reflect my true feelings. In speaking out today, I hope to keep others from falling victim to him in the future.”
