Actress Bella Thorne has come to the defense of Armie Hammer after he denied sending disturbing messages about rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism to a woman that were leaked last week.
‘I honestly can’t believe this… people are crazy to fake this kinda s*** this poor guy and his kids like leave him and his family alone. No way he’s a freaking CANNIBAL…..’ the 23-year-old wrote on social media.
It appeared that the former Disney star was confused by the allegations – which were about alleged sexual fantasies and not actual cannibalism. Thorne added: ‘Also there’s a million fake screen shots going around.’
Hammer, 34, has addressed the reports of disturbing messages to women, telling DailyMail.com in a statement: ‘I’m not responding to these b******* claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.’

On Wednesday DailyMail.com obtained concerning videos showing Hammer looking ‘out of it’, cracking open a beer while driving and licking white powder off his friend’s hand.
The 34-year-old is seen in two separate clips, declaring ‘s**t’s getting weird’ after polishing off a white substance from a friend’s hand and in another saying ‘sending love, boys’ after taking a swig from his beer can while behind the wheel.
Hammer began to trend on Twitter over the weekend after a series of sexually graphic Instagram DMs that he allegedly penned to a woman were leaked publicly by an anonymous, now-private account, House of Effie.

Hammer’s estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, whom he split from in July 2020, is said to be currently ‘shocked and sickened’ over the recent revelations.
A close friend exclusively told DailyMail.com: ‘Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn’t know.’
The Social Network star has also confirmed he was dropping out of his latest film – Shotgun Wedding with Jennifer Lopez – after the news was first reported earlier on Wednesday.
He said: ‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.’
A Wednesday report from Page Six claimed that the actor was exiting the project, with production spokesperson saying: ‘Given the imminent start date of ‘Shotgun Wedding,’ Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision.’
Meanwhile, Hammer’s estranged wife is said to be distraught over the leaked messages, which date back to 2016 and some are as recent as February 2020, a time period where Hammer was still married.

The two announced their 10-year marriage was over in July, as a source close to Chambers admitted she was aware of his infidelities, including being romantically involved with Lily James as DailyMail.com revealed last year, which led to their split.
But Hammer’s alleged extreme kinks are a ‘complete shock’ to the mother-of-two, with the friend adding: ‘Armie appears to be a monster.’
The friend said: ‘A lot of these women have reached out to Elizabeth and although she didn’t want to admit it to herself at first, she knows now they are speaking the truth.
‘Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn’t know.’
Though the messages are unverified, the user attempted to prove their authenticity by sharing private photos alleged to be from Hammer. One includes a photo that seems to be sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account where he grabs his neck, presumably to imitate choking himself (pictured)
The insider claims that one of the women who contacted Chambers about her experience with Hammer was left so traumatized that she entered an ‘intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse.’
The source added: ‘He preyed upon her when she was coming out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable, the things he wanted to do made her very scared.’
The graphic Instagram DMs that Hammer allegedly penned to a woman included talk of rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism.
In one exchange, Hammer is seen to write: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’
‘F**k. That’s scary to admit,’ the message continues. ‘I’ve never admitted that before.’
The authenticity of the screenshots has not yet been verified, however the woman behind the House of Effie account shared new alleged correspondences with Hammer on Tuesday, in which he appeared to refer to her as his ‘slave’.
‘You just live to obey me and be my slave,’ a message purported to have been sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account reads.
‘I will own you. That’s my soul. My brain. My spirit. My body. Would you come and be my property till you die?’
The message continues: ‘If I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession?’
