‘What the f**k?’ Armie Hammer’s estranged wife says she was stunned by rape allegations against him
The estranged wife of Armie Hamer has revealed that she only found out about his sexual assault allegations and fantasies of violent cannibalism at the same time as the rest of the world when she broke her silence about their ill-fated marriage.
Elizabeth Chambers, 40, said it was the lockdown that shattered their relationship along with allegations of infidelity, as her family claims she has not “fully healed” from her relationship with the disgraced movie star.
In an interview with Elle magazine, the television presenter and owner of the bakery chain added that she was concerned about the impact Hammer’s behavior would have on her children when she asked: ‘Do I want my son to become this? Would I want my daughter to continue in a relationship like this?’
Hammer, 36, has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault, emotional manipulation and having violent fantasies involving cannibalism.
The Social Network star broke his own silence over the weekend to admit he was a ‘jerk’ and revealed he was molested by a pastor when he was 13.
Elizabeth Chambers, 40, breaks her silence on her ten-year marriage to Armie Hammer in an interview with Elle magazine.
Chambers revealed that she and Hammer were in couples therapy for much of their marriage.
The television personality in her own right said she found out about Hammer’s allegations at the same time as the rest of the world, adding ‘what the fuck?’
Now his ex-wife Chambers, who filed for divorce in 2020, has broken her silence on the allegations, revealing: “I was learning things like the public.” I was like, ‘There are no words. What the hell?’
However, he added: “The last thing I want to do is let someone else’s actions, which have nothing to do with me, make me angry.”
‘It’s not going to help me, and it’s not going to help anyone around me.
She also claimed that the couple were in couples therapy for much of their ten-year marriage, seeking help from famed relationship specialist Esther Perel, who told her that “heartbreak is literally worse than heroin addiction.”
Her sister Catherine also contributes to the article, telling Elle that she doesn’t think Chambers is “fully healed” from her relationship with Hammer.
Hammer and Chambers, 40, were married for ten years after a mutual friend introduced them in 2007.
When asked about Hammer’s sexual fantasies, Chambers declined to comment, simply stating that “limits are everything.”
She added: ‘Your partner is learning things about themselves. They are growing, you are growing, you hope you are growing together.
Chambers revealed that she has now moved in with a 26-year-old European boyfriend who she said is helping to “heal my body, my heart and my mind.”
The TV presenter and the bakery owner paint a picture of a strained marriage, revealing that they once attended a dinner together and did not speak to each other.
Their relationship has also been affected by allegations of infidelity, as Hammer admits to having an affair with a woman he met on social media in 2016.
But the nail in the coffin came during the pandemic.
In 2020, the couple was on a boat trip in St Barts and had intended to return to Los Angeles when covid cases began to rise.
Instead, they traveled to the Cayman Islands to quarantine with Hammer’s father and stepmother, Misty, along with their own children.
Hammer had previously described the situation as “very complicated” and “intense” due to the presence of “big personalities cooped up in a small place”.
Reflecting on the period now, Chambers told Elle: “He was the worst.”
Hammer then decided to leave his wife and children in the Cayman Islands and return to California, where he helped a friend restore an old motel near Joshua Tree National Park.
Chambers said the move broke her heart “into nine million pieces,” adding that “I still took it to the airport.”
Chambers filed for divorce in July of that year.
She told the magazine: “You can give, you can love, you can be there for someone, but you also need to hold people accountable for their actions.”
He added that the thought of his family being separated was his “biggest fear.”
‘You’re building something, right?’ she said.
You are weaving a beautiful tapestry, and the last thing you want is for a knife to come along and rip the tapestry in half.
