According to sources, the controversial “Call Me by Your Name” actor is receiving assistance for drug, alcohol, and sex troubles.
An eagle-eyed fan first noticed Hammer, 34, saying goodbye to estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two children at the Grand Cayman airport roughly two weeks ago.
“Elizabeth and the kids dropped him off and walked as far as they could,” the person wrote. “There were a lot of hugs and it appeared that they were emotional.”
Hammer flew to a treatment clinic outside of Orlando, Fla., on May 31 and checked in.
Hammer and Chambers’ representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Page Six. Hammer’s lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
In a piece published Tuesday, Vanity Fair quoted a source close to the actor as saying, “Everyone looks at Armie believing he’s had some type of privileged upbringing — and that must imply there were no troubles in his adolescence and everything was peachy lovely.”
“However, it isn’t always how things work out. Just because you were raised in a household with plenty of money doesn’t imply you won’t have troubles later in life.”
Hammer “is devoted to getting healthier and gaining custody of his kids,” according to a family member.
“This is clear evidence that he is taking back control [of] his life and realizes that this [is] a step towards his general well-being,” a close friend of Hammer’s remarked.
Chambers divorced the “Rebecca” star in July 2020, months before the “cannibalism” controversy emerged. In October of that year, Hammer requested shared custody of their two children, Harper and Ford.
Since January, when several women, including exes Courtney Vucekovich and Paige Lorenze, came forwards with charges of emotional and sexual abuse, the “The Social Network” star has been entangled in a sexual assault scandal.
A woman called Effie came forwards in March and accused Hammer of rapping her “violently.”
The LAPD confirmed to CN News that it had opened an inquiry into Hammer following her news conference.
Hammer’s attorney has strenuously denied any misconduct against the women.
Mr. Hammer’s attorney told CN News at the time, “From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his encounters with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been totally consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and totally participating.”
“[Effie’s] publicity-seeking and ill-advised legal bid would only make it more difficult for real sexual abuse victims to receive the justice they deserve.”
Hammer’s career suffered a rapid decline, with the actor being pulled from a number of films, including Jennifer Lopez’s “Shotgun Wedding,” and eventually his agency, WME.
