Armie Hammer, 34, and Elizabeth Chambers, 38, confirmed their unexpected split in July 2020. Months after their joint announcement, Armie became embroiled in controversy as several women came forward with allegations of sexual assault — including by a woman named Effie on March 16, 2021. “On April 24, 2017, Armie Hammer violently raped me for over four hours in Los Angeles,” she alleged in the video obtained by HollywoodLife above, alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred.
“During which he repeatedly slapped my head against a wall bruising my face. He also committed other acts of violence against me to which I did not consent.” She also claims she was in an on-again/off-again relationship with The Social Network actor for four years. For his part, Armie has denied the new allegations through his lawyer Andrew B. Brettler of Lavely & Singer and says his relationship with Effie and other women coming forward with claims were “completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.”
In addition to the statement obtained by HollywoodLife through Armie’s lawyer, the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed there is an investigation. “On February 3rd Investigators at the LAPD operations West Bureau special assault section were contacted by an attorney representing a female community member,” the LAPD tells HollywoodLife. “After speaking with the community member the department initiated a sexual assault investigation which is being investigated by the special assault section. This is an ongoing investigation and no other details are available.”
While Elizabeth has not issued a statement about these most recent allegations, she addressed other claims against Armie in February 2021. “For weeks, I’ve been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know,” she wrote.
“I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal. At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter. My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time,” she added.
