She added that his sexual desires were “all he ever wanted to talk about.”
Armie first addressed the allegations in January 2021, when he confirmed his exit from the Jennifer Lopez-fronted film Shotgun Wedding. “I’m not responding to these bulls–t claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot, in good conscience now, leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” Armie told E! News in a statement at the time. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
He was later dropped by his talent agency WME and lost a high-profile role in Paramount+’s The Offer.
In March 2021, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirmed to E! News that Hammer was the “main suspect” of an investigation into rape and assault allegations made by an unnamed individual. However, when contacted Aug. 10, the department did not immediately provide an update on their inquiry.
At the time, Hammer’s attorney Andrew Brettler denied any wrongdoing on his client’s behalf. “From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions,” Brettler said in March 2021, “have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.”
