The Dark Story of Armie Hammer
California native Armie Hammer is an actor who has been in many films over the years including The Birth of a Nation, Wounds, Hotel Mumbai, The Lone Ranger, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. to name a few. He looks the part of a Hollywood leading man, and he had a promising career. Hammer has a terrible dark side, though. Be warned that the story that follows is highly disturbing even if only a portion of it is true.
He has been accused of raping a woman and physically abusing her during their off and one relationship of four years. Gloria Allred represents the woman who has accused him of abuse and rape. The victim says that on April 24, 2017, Hammer raped and assaulted her over four hours in Los Angeles. She claims that he slapped her head against a wall and bruised her face and committed other nonconsensual acts of violence.
In addition to the rape, the victim said that Hammer used a crop to beat her feet, making it difficult for her to walk. She attempted to get away but was unable to flee. She says that she was afraid for her life. Her story led the LAPD to investigate Hammer in the sexual assault.
More Bizarre and Disturbing Details
Hammer also allegedly had online conversations through Instagram with a number of women, and the subject of the exchanges was bizarre. Conversations included the desire to inflict pain on his partners, rape fantasies, blood-drinking, and even cannibalism. An ex-girlfriend has said that Hammer was controlling and was emotionally abusive.
The images of conversations through Instagram are disturbing, to say the least. If they are from Hammer, they seem to show someone who has dark fantasies and fetishes. Other women came forward and corroborated some of these types of behavior. They claim that he said that he wanted to bite off pieces of them and told one woman that he wanted to eat her heart.
Another ex, Courtney Vucekovich, said that dating him was like “dating Hannibal Lecter” and said that he likes the idea of skin in his teeth. She said that he told her he wanted to barbecue and eat her. She claimed that he would groom people in the relationship, starting out slowly and then trying to introduce the darker and violent aspects.
Paige Lorenze, a model, said that Hammer carved his first initial into the skin above her pubic bone with a knife and that he wanted to have a doctor remove one of her ribs, so he could eat it.
When the first accusations of cannibalism came to light, most people initially laughed it off. But as more women started to come forward with these allegations, it was no longer a laughing matter. It was potentially a look into a troubled mind. Many have looked back over his social media accounts and interviews, which they now find troubling given what’s come to light.
Hammer’s representation is no stranger to these types of cases involving wealthy, famous men. In addition to Hammer, he has also been involved in cases involving Danny Masterton, Bryan Singer, and most recently Prince Andrew, who is accused of raping a teenage girl.
On June 8, 2021, Hammer checked himself into a treatment program to help him take back control of his life. It’s unclear what’s going to happen to Hammer in the future, but one thing is likely certain. His career is tanked.
