Armie Hammer Apologizes For Calling Lingerie-Clad Woman ‘Ms. Cayman’ In Leaked Video

Armie Hammer apologized to the beauty pageant title-holder of 2020 Miss Cayman Islands, Mariah Tibbetts, after referring to a mystery woman as ‘Ms. Cayman’ under a leaked video.

Armie Hammer, 34, has issued an apology after a post leaked from his private Instagram account on Jan. 15, in which he referred to a lingerie-clad woman as “Ms. Cayman.” Two days later, the Call Me By Your Name actor clarified that the mystery woman in the video was not to be confused with beauty pageant queen Mariah Tibbetts, who is currently the title-holder of 2020 Miss Cayman Islands.

“I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman. I am genuinely sorry for any confusion my foolish attempt at humor may have caused,” Hammer said in an audio statement issued to Cayman Compress on Jan. 17, which you can listen to above.

Hammer then directly apologized to Tibbetts, saying, “My deep sympathies to Miss Cayman, who I don’t know, and to the entire organization as I had no intentions of implying she was actually Miss Cayman.” The chairperson for Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee, Derri Dacres-Lee, had already made this clarification before Hammer’s audio statement.

On Jan. 15, the pageant chairperson took to Miss Cayman Islands Universe’s Instagram and wrote, “The Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee is aware of a video allegedly posted by Armie Hammer referring to a scantily clad young woman as ‘Miss Cayman.’ The Committee is very disturbed by the video and would like to confirm that the woman is not the reigning Miss Cayman Islands and has no affiliation to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant.” You can read the full statement below.

The leaked video showed Hammer walking through a hotel room before revealing a mystery woman in black lingerie waiting on his bed, her face hidden from the camera. “Well… my ex (for very good reason) wife [Elizabeth Chambers] is refusing to come back to america with my children. So I have to go back to Cayman… which sucks. Except there are a few silver linings. Like fu-king Ms. Cayman again while I’m down there,” Hammer wrote in the video’s caption, according to Daily Mail

Prior to Hammer’s apology, the grandson of oil tycoon heir Armand Hammer had shot down reports of controversial DMs that were allegedly sent from the actor and had leaked online. Amid the scandal, Hammer pulled out of a movie with Jennifer Lopez, Shotgun Wedding, and issued a statement about the allegations and his withdrawal.

“I’m not responding to these bullsh-t 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. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that,” Hammer wrote in a statement for our sister publication, Variety, on Jan. 13. A representative for the production also told the outlet, “Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision.”

Hammer split from Chambers after 10 years of marriage, which he confirmed in an Instagram post in July of 2020. They share two children, their daughter Grace, 6, and son Ford, 4, who currently live with Chambers in the Cayman Islands.

Hispanic Arrested for Hammer Attack on New York Subway The State

José Moreno was arrested on suspicion of attacking a passenger with a hammer at a subway station in Upper Manhattan.

Moreno, 47, was arrested yesterday afternoon and charged with two counts of battery, according to the New York police.

Supposedly hit the unidentified passenger on the back of the head with a hammer while waiting for the train on Sunday around 11 a.m., inside the 175th St station on Line A, in Washington Heights.

“I’m going to fuck … someone,” the deranged man shouted before the random attack, he detailed New York Post. Then he fled in an unknown direction. The 46-year-old stunned victim sought the help of the booth clerk at the station, but did not need to be hospitalized.

The violence and “mental health crisis” that the city is experiencing are wreaking havoc on the transportation system, recently denounced the city’s transit chief (NYC Transit), Sarah Feinberg, in a new letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Armie Hammer shows off lingerie-clad woman waiting on all fours on his bed

Armie Hammer bragged to his inner circle about a lingerie-clad woman waiting for him in his bed and smugly posted about taking a hallucinogenic drug that goes undetected in drug tests in leaked videos from his private Instagram account, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The 34-year-old posted to his secret Instagram account, followed by his close friends, a snippet of himself taking a drag from a vape box on December 16, writing: ‘When you realize they don’t test for DMT on drug tests.’

He also shared a screenshot of what appears to be a court order that states he must take a drug test, as source revealed he is required to pass it before seeing his two young children with his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, 38.

The couple announced in July they were ending their 10-year marriage and the children have been living with Chambers in the Cayman Islands.

Hammer documented taking his home drug test, writing: ‘All negative, b***hes. My body is a finely tuned toxicant processing unit. To be fair I had THC and benzos in my piss. But who doesn’t.’ He added: ‘Divorce is so fun. Not as fun as drugs. But what is.’

But the actor seemingly found a perk of traveling to Grand Cayman to see his children, aged six and three, posting a video of a woman dressed in strappy black lingerie waiting patiently on his bed on all fours, her rear end appearing to be bright pink as she looked straight ahead.

He wrote: ‘Well… my ex (for a very good reason) wife is refusing to come back to america with my children. So I have to go back to Cayman… which sucks. Except there are a few silver linings. Like f**king Ms. Cayman again while I’m down there.’

Hammer is currently in Grand Cayman, where he recently posted a photo poolside enjoying a Red Stripe beer, writing: ‘Some days require a drink. Others demand them.’

A few hours later, he confirmed he was stepping away from his latest movie role and addressed leaked messages alleged to be from him discussing cannibalism and BDSM, saying they were ‘bulls**t claims’. 

His rep declined to comment on the videos posted to his private Instagram account. 

The videos offer further insight into his personal life, as a source close to the family describes his downward spiral into drugs and depravity.

The source said: ‘He always liked to drink, do drugs, but never like this.’ 

Earlier this week, Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Courtney Vucekovich told DailyMail.com that Hammer was into ‘master-slave fetishes’ and told her he wanted to break and eat her ribs.

She said Hammer quickly manipulated her into playing along with his twisted fetishes, and that he would often fantasize about cannibalism. 

Although Vucekovich said she did not want to get into graphic detail about Hammer’s behavior during their relationship, she said it was enough that she checked into a 30-day intensive course of therapy for trauma and PTSD to deal with the ‘warped relationship’ with the movie star after their breakup in early October.

Meanwhile, Hammer’s estranged wife is in ‘complete shock’ and ‘sickened’ over the recent claims and messages alleged to be sent by Hammer that discuss rape and cannibalism.

A friend 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.’  

He also shared a screenshot of what appears to be a court order that states he must take a drug test, as source said he is required to pass it before seeing his two young children whom he shares with his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, 38

Pictured: Hammer posted this photo to his official Instagram account on January 2, writing: ‘Free at last! (With my kids but as a New Years resolution I will not be posting pictures of my children for their safety and for their well-being)’ 

It appears that hotel room video, despite being posted on December 16, was filmed on a previous trip to the island, due to Hammer’s cropped hair – a style he sported when he was quarantining there in the spring with Chambers and his kids.

Recent photos posted to Hammer’s official account show him with longer hair, similar to his vaping video posted the same day.

Hammer pretended to be nonchalant as he showed off his room at the Ritz-Carlton in the Grand Cayman, panning the camera around the room’s closet, bathroom and balcony.

In the midst of the 40-second clip, the camera briefly pans to his bed, where a woman dressed in strappy black lingerie was waiting patiently on all fours, her rear end appearing to be bright pink as she looked straight ahead.

Hammer ignores the woman as he gives the tour of the room, only remarking: ‘Yeah, the bed looks pretty comfy, that looks pretty good.’

This week DailyMail.com obtained videos of Hammer ‘looking ‘out of it’, cracking open a beer while driving and licking white crystals off his friend’s hand.

He 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’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 infidelity, 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.’

They 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 Hammer's ex-girlfriend says he was into 'master-slave fetishes' and told her he wanted to break and eat her ribs, she told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. Courtney Vucekovich, a Dallas-based app founder, said she met Hammer in June through mutual friends, and from the beginning he was 'intoxicating'

Bella Thorne DEFENDS Armie Hammer against ‘cannibal’ allegations

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.’

‘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?’

Armie Hammer and ex wife Elizabeth Chambers DROP price of home amid the actor’s explicit DMs scandal

Sudden: Armie Hammer and estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers have dramatically dropped the price of their $5.8million Hancock Park home; Armie and Elizabeth pictured in 2018

Armie Hammer and estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers have dramatically dropped the price of their $5.8million Hancock Park home, which was listed in September.

The former couple reportedly lowered the asking price of the 6,275-square-foot residence by a whopping $800,000, according to the New York Post on Thursday.

The colossal reduction comes just days after direct messages depicting fantasies of rape and cannibalism, allegedly sent by Hammer to an unidentified woman, were leaked on social media.

The disturbing exchanges were leaked publicly by an anonymous, now-private account, House of Effie, on Sunday, which prompted Hammer to trend on Twitter.

The graphic Instagram DMs that Hammer allegedly penned included talk of rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism, with one message explicitly stating: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’  

In another one of the many eyebrow raising messages, Armie allegedly said he ‘wanted to cut off’ his girlfriend’s toe and ‘keep it in his pocket.’

On Wednesday, The Call Me By Your Name actor, 34, broke his silence on the matter in a statement to DailyMail.com.

‘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,’ said Hammer to DailyMail.com.

He added: ‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.’

Armie was referring to his upcoming rom-com film Shotgun Wedding, where he was set to star opposite Jennifer Lopez.

With the recent price drop on the home she once shared with her ex husband, Elizabeth will hopefully be able to distance herself as much as possible from the defamed star.

They originally bought the home in 2018 for $4.7M.

The home has an impressive facade as it is three stories high and has many Tudor touches such as a red brick exterior and lead glass windows with pitched roofs.

The 6,275 square foot property has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, and clearly has been nicely remodeled by the exes who lightened up the walls and made the home look overall more polished.

Subway passenger in Upper Manhattan was hit with a hammer on the head | The State

A passenger was hit in the head with a hammer on a New York City Subway platform, in an apparent new random attack.

The NYPD said the incident happened Sunday around 11 a.m. inside the 175th St station on line A, in Washington Heights.

The 46-year-old victim was waiting for a train on the southbound platform when an unidentified man approached him from behind and suddenly struck him on the back of the head with a hammer, authorities said.

The attacker fled in an unknown direction. The stunned victim sought the help of the booth clerk at the station, reported Pix11.

Armie Hammer says ‘the vicious and spurious online attacks against me’ are ‘b*******’

Armie Hammer has responded for the first time to disturbing messages allegedly sent by the actor, which were leaked last week.

He said he could not leave his children alone for four months while filming Shotgun Wedding, with Jennifer Lopez. Earlier on Wednesday it was reported that he was pulling out of the film. 

The Social Network star told TMZ: ‘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.’ 

He added: ‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.’ 

A Wednesday report from PageSix claimed that the actor was already 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 another report claimed that Lopez had also been considering dropping Hammer from the film.

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly set to drop actor Armie Hammer from her upcoming rom-com, Shotgun Wedding, after disturbing messages allegedly sent by the actor were leaked

Controversy: The news comes after a series of screenshots leaked over the weekend, purporting to show Armie Hammer authoring a series of disturbing messages about rape fantasies, cannibalism, and 'blood-sucking' to a woman over a period of four years (pictured November 2020)

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly set to drop actor Armie Hammer from her upcoming rom-com, Shotgun Wedding, after disturbing messages allegedly sent by the actor were leaked

‘Jennifer is very concerned about the movie now these stories have come out,’ a source has told The Sun. 

A source expanded to The Sun: ‘There have been a lot of phone calls and meetings about if they can still make the movie with Armie as the romantic lead.

‘A lot of people have suggested quietly dropping him from the project and I think Jennifer could agree to it,’ the insider added.

‘She’s a producer on the movie – does she want to act with him and pretend to be in love with someone who’s been accused of texting those things?’ 

JLo, who is reportedly ‘horrified’ by the alleged messages, currently is cast as Hammer’s fiancee in the upcoming rom-com.  

On Wednesday DailyMail.com obtained concerning videos showing Hammer looking ‘out of it’, cracking open a beer while driving and licking white crystals 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. 

A source close to the family describes his downward spiral into drugs and depravity. 

The source said: ‘He always liked to drink, do drugs, but never like this.’

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.’

He then shows a friend whose hand is outstretched with a tiny amount of small white crystals. 

Hammer is then seen licking the substance out of his friend’s hand, before the man says ‘more, more, more, more’, prompting Hammer to go back and clean off the rest of the man’s hand.  

Hammer grimaces, sticks his tongue out and makes disgusted noises, saying: ‘Got it all.’

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.’

They 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.’ 

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.’

They 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 message, the actor allegedly writes to the woman: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’ 

Though the messages are unverified, House of Effie attempted to prove their authenticity by sharing private photos alleged to be from Hammer.

One includes an undated photo that seems to be sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account where he grabs his neck, presumably to imitate choking himself.

Another photo is of a male’s hand splayed out across a script on a wooden table, and purports to have been sent from Hammer’s Instagram account in an undated message. Visible on the man’s ring finger is a small tattoo.

Notably, Hammer has a similar looking tattoo on his finger, having previously had Chambers’ initials inked on his ring finger shortly after they married in October 2010.

They also supplied voice messages, where a man purported to be Hammer describes his sexual fantasies and speaks about the messages in question. 

 House of Effie explained she initially shared a video that referenced her alleged affair with Hammer, prompting other women to come forward and their stories to go viral. 

The user wrote: ‘Women approached me with their affair stories as we talked overwhelmed with grief for days and nights without sleeping or eating, with some ending up in the ER.

‘We collectively decided we have to speak out after how we were treated and seeing how the women in 2020 were being treated by him. We cannot allow more women to endure what we are going through in the future.’

The accuser claims the women that Hammer allegedly was having affairs with recently ‘united’ and were able to ‘piece together a five year timeline’ of his alleged activity.

They concluded that ‘when [Hammer] has a fight with his wife, he’d reach out to his kitten, and when they had a fight, the next day he would just reach out to his other kitten with the same message. Naturally all fights revolving around [Hammer’s] bad treatment of women.’

It’s unclear how many women are behind the allegations.

During this time period, Hammer was still married to Chambers. They are parents to two children, daughter Harper, six, and son Ford, three. 

The woman has also shared a photo she claims to have received from Hammer during her purported exchange with him, showing a tattoo on his ring finger

In a number of the alleged messages, Hammer appears to reference Chambers. 

In an exchange via Facebook in April of 2017, Chambers is brought up again. A woman asks ‘did you fix that problem?’

And when Hammer quizzes: ‘What problem?’, she replies: ‘The f**k-your-wife-so-she-lets-s**t-go problem.’

Hammer answers back: ‘Hahahaha. Not yet. But I bought a b**er pill for tomorrow night just to make sure I seal the deal. They’ve bumped her from first class and we didn’t even sit next to each other.’

Another message from Instagram dated Christmas Day 2019, the accuser claims she told Hammer’s wife about their alleged affair.

Hammer allegedly writes: ‘As long as you f**king promise never to do anything like that again.’

One of Hammer’s exes, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, has spoken out saying she believes the shocking messages ‘are real’, and later wrote: ‘It takes an army to hide a predator’ in reference to the allegations.  

Henriquez tweeted on Monday: ‘If you are still questioning whether or not those Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims.’ 

Henriquez, who was pictured on a date with Hammer on August 31, later took to Instagram to add: ‘It takes an army to hide a predator. Behind every abuser is a team of people working hard to cover up the trail.’

The writer reportedly blocked Hammer on social media shortly after their August meeting. It’s unclear how long they dated.

Armie Hammer says French erotica writer and philosopher Marquis de Sade is his dream dinner guest 

Armie Hammer dropped hints about his reported sexual fetishes in several interviews before he was was accused of sexual depravity and alleged to be a ‘cannibal’.   

In a November 2020 Netflix interview for the film Rebecca, starring Lily James, Hammer was asked (in Spanish) ‘What historical person would you like to have dinner with?’

To which Armie responded, ‘Marquis de Sade.’ 

French philosopher and erotic writer Marquis de Sade

French philosopher and erotic writer Marquis de Sade

Marquis de Sade was a French philosopher and writer known for his erotic work in the 1700s. 

De Sade’s work depicted sexual fantasies and empathized violence, suffering and sodomy. 

The words ‘sadism’ and ‘sadist’ are derived from de Sade’s work where he portrayed acts of sexual cruelty.  

Hammer told Netflix that de Sade would be his dream dinner guest 

Henriquez previously posted a meme to Twitter that showed a picture of her with Hammer, bearing the caption ‘How it started’, alongside a screen shot showing Hammer’s blocked account, with the words ‘How it’s going’.  The post was uploaded on October 30. 

Another woman Hammer was recently said to be dating, model Paige Lorenze, tweeted Sunday: ‘anyone got a good therapist?’ as the messages were first leaked.

Henriquez responded to the post the following day, telling Lorenze: ‘Yeah girl, I’ll send you the number’, accompanied with a wink-face emoji.

A request for comment sent to Lorenze’s publicist has not yet been returned.

House of Effie also shared a clip from an Interview posted by Netflix in November 2020, where he declares that his dream dinner guest would be Marquis de Sade, a French philosopher and author, whose works helped coin the term ‘sadist’ to describe sexual cruelty. 

He was known for his libertine sexuality and his works depicted sexual fantasies, which included a heavy focus on violence, suffering and anal sex.

Hammer, best known for his acclaimed role in 2017’s Call Me By Your Name, has appeared in recent years in films including On the Basis of Sex, Sorry to Bother You and the upcoming Death on the Nile.

DailyMail.com has reached out to 20th Century Fox, who are behind Death on the Nile, and ViacombCBS, who are developing The Offer in which Hammer is set to star, for comment on the allegations but has not yet received a response. 

In an interview with Playboy magazine in 2013, he lifted the lid on his ‘wild’ sexual habits with women in previous relationships.

He told the outlet: ‘Well, if you’re married to a feminist as I am, then it’s…. I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover.

‘I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better – it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, “I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.”’

Hammer later blamed what he called ‘over-sharing’ about his past sexual exploits on alcohol.

‘Let’s just say hindsight is 20/20. Don’t drink during an interview,’ he told E! News.

However, in an interview with Elle later the same year, he claimed a former girlfriend once tried to stab him in bed.

‘One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex,’ Hammer said. ‘I should so not be telling this story. She was like, “True love leaves scars. You don’t have any.” And then she tried to stab me with a butcher knife,’ he added. ‘Of course I promptly broke up with her…seven months later.’

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?’

Armie Hammer becomes trending topic after graphic Instagram DMs he’s accused of sending are leaked

A woman who has accused Armie Hammer of sending vile Instagram messages based on cannibalism and rape claims a photo of his tattooed hand proves he is responsible.  

Hammer, 34, began trending on Twitter across Sunday night after a series of screenshots showing graphic messages he’d allegedly penned to a woman were leaked by the anonymous, now-private Instagram account, House of Effie.

The messages, said to be sent between 2016 and February 2020, include conversations about BDSM, in addition to numerous sexual references to cannibalistic acts and blood-sucking. 

In one message, the actor allegedly writes to the woman: ‘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 messages have not yet been verified and Hammer is still yet to speak publicly on the matter, despite multiple requests for comment. 

However, in an attempt to prove their authenticity, the anonymous woman behind the leak has shared a photo she claims to have received during her purported exchange with Hammer, which shows a tattoo on his ring finger.

The image shared shows a male’s hand splayed out across a script on a wooden table, and purports to have been sent from Hammer’s Instagram account in an undated message.

Hammer has a similar looking tattoo on his finger, having previously had the initials of his ex-wife Rebecca Chambers inked on his ring finger shortly after they married in October 2010, according to Vogue.

The pair were still married at the time the alleged messages from Hammer were apparently sent to the woman. They announced their divorce after 10 years in the summer of 2020.

Fans of the Call Me By Your Name star, 34, have voiced skepticism over the authenticity of the messages, insisting they appear to be fake, according to a report from Just Jared.   

DailyMail.com has reached out to Hammer’s reps for comment but has not yet received a response.

The messages were leaked over the weekend, when the anonymous woman said she shared a video that referenced her alleged interactions with Hammer, prompting other women to come forward with similar stories.

In another exchange, the account purported to belong to Hammer writes to the woman: ‘If you were next to me I’d give you the tiniest cut, and fall back asleep sucking on it.’  

A separate correspondence alleged to be from February 2020 reads: ‘I’d chase you down and pounce on you so fast if you tried to walk away. 

‘Fuuuuu**. You’ll need something strong to hold me back from you.’ 

An audio clip has also surfaced on Twitter, which purports to document Hammer speaking in reference to ‘risque’ messages he’d sent to someone in the midst of a ‘kink-based’ relationship.

In the clip, the male voice is heard saying: ‘They were very risqué dms with someone I was involved with in very much a sort of kink-based relationship, if you will.

‘So a lot of s**t was said that also most people don’t relate to. It’s kink, its niche, it’s fetish – so that’s bad.

‘So if that wasn’t bad enough, imagine this: You’re having sex with someone and you say something in the heat of the moment … if someone comes up to you and says “Oh my god, I heard you said this…” out of context, out of the heat of the moment, out of that safe place where it sounds perfect to say – it’s a little cringey.’ 

Hammer previously made headlines of a similar nature in 2017, after he liked a series of tweets about BDSM sex acts.

The star and estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, 38, split this past July after 10 years of marriage; they are parents to two children, daughter Harper, six, and son Ford, three.

Late last month, he traveled to the Cayman Islands to reunite with his family, quarantining for the requisite 14-day period prior to reuniting with his children. 

The actor has been posting updates from his Cayman Islands trips in recent weeks, including a shirtless video of himself enjoying a drink on Christmas Eve.

He also shared a snap on the beach with friends and family as he rang in the New Year in the idyllic spot, adding that ‘as a New Years resolution I will not be posting pictures of my children for their safety and for their well-being.’

Armie quit Twitter in 2017 after a ‘bitter AF’ Buzzfeed article was written about him. 

But the actor rejoined the social networking site in January 2018, joking alcohol may have had something to do with his decision.

‘They should put a blood alcohol measuring device on cell phones to keep you from drunkenly reactivating your Twitter…’ wrote The Social Network star.  

Within a day of reactivating, Hammer was already getting into online squabbles.

One user tagged the father-of-two in a tweet that claimed that Hammer’s ‘Oscar campaign crashed and burned’.

The California native retorted: ‘Your tweet got one like… doesn’t seem like you can do much of anything.’

Armie previously discussed quitting Twitter while speaking to Vulture in November 2017, after being embarrassed by a clip of him dancing in Call Me by Your Name went viral. 

‘Anytime I would open up my Twitter, it was just a ton of that,’ he said, ‘and I was like, ‘Nope, I can’t have my nose rubbed in this anymore. I’m out!”

In October Armie opened up about the restless early days of the coronavirus pandemic, and how he sought help.

The 34-year-old actor, chatting with British GQ’s Heroes series, said he was not in a good place earlier in the year amid international shutdowns in response to the spread of COVID-19. 

‘I think like everyone else on the planet, I felt like the rug was ripped from under my feet,’ said the Santa Monica, California native. ‘And I felt like I could feel it happening in slow-motion, like the rug was just being ripped from my feet and I was falling face-first and I was gonna smash my face on the ground. 

‘I felt like I was in a state of like, free fall almost, like it was just, it was really difficult.’

The actor, who had spent the earlier part of the lockdown in the Cayman Islands, acknowledged his privileged lifestyle in saying his wealthy background did not diminish the mental anguish he was experiencing. 

‘I know there are people that had it way harder than I did,’ he said, ‘but it’s all subjective, you can only deal with your own reality and mine was felt like it was falling apart.’

He added: That’s a really kind of scary place but at the same time it’s a place of change in change is the only universal constant. Change is scary, but at the same time, change always precipitates growth and it was the time to grow.’

The On the Basis of Sex actor said he felt the lockdown, which caused many to hunker down in their homes, presented either ‘a time to grow or a time to implode,’ and that ‘without paying attention,’ he ‘started down the path down completely imploding.’

Hammer said he’d let his ‘mental health lapse’ in ‘allowing [himself] to end up in positions or situations that [he] knew were detrimental.’

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. actor said change came in the form of a wake up call he had, and that he finally reached out for help.

‘I had a very intense wake up call one day and I realize that I needed more help than I realized,’ he said. ‘So I called a friend of mine, Brendan, who works in mental health and I was like, “Dude, it’s not good. It’s not good for me,” and he goes, “I know, it’s not good for anyone,” and I go, “Yeah, but really not good for me, like I’m having a really hard time. I don’t know what the answer to this is.”‘ 

Hammer said his friend ‘ended up getting [him] on the phone with a therapist who [he] started working with multiple times a week just to get me through sort of like the crisis aspect of what was going on.’

‘On screen she could be quietly evil. She goes from statuesque beauty to just animalistic wildness.

‘She was a regular favourite of Hammer events and autograph shows but also performed on stage with the RSC.’

He added: ‘She adored Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing and loved working with them, that was very dear to her.’

Mr Bowington said Shelley had recently been in hospital, where she had caught Covid-19, but had since recovered.

He said: ‘It wasn’t the Covid that took her, she had underlying issues.’ 

Nicola Bryant, who played Doctor Who’s assistant Peri Brown alongside her, revealed she still treasured a present she gave her on set.

She said today: ‘So very sad to hear of the passing of Barbara Shelley.

‘A darling person and a talented actress. When we worked together on Planet of Fire she was so kind to me.

‘She gave me a little owl, still in my possession and some good advice. RIP Barbara Shelley. Wise and wonderful lady.’      

Born Barbra Kowin in 1932, Shelley was also known for TV roles in series including The Saint, The Avengers, The Borgias, Blake’s 7 and Crown Court, and later played Hester Samuels in EastEnders.

In 2010, writer and actor Mark Gatiss interviewed Shelley about her career at Hammer Films for his BBC documentary series A History Of Horror.

The London-based production company, founded in 1934, made a string of hit Gothic horror films from the mid-1950s until the 1970s.

Many of these involved classic horror characters such as Baron Victor Frankenstein, Count Dracula, and the Mummy.

In an interview with the Express in 2009 she said she was told at a sci-fi convention by female fans they loved her for her strong roles.

She said: ‘Which I thought was a brilliant thing to have said about one. I never thought of it in that way. The fact that I’m still getting mail from my horror fan base really touches me.

‘No one told me I was beautiful. They said I was photogenic but no one said I was beautiful. If they had I would have had a lot more fun!’

Mahrez scores first Man City hat-trick as Guardiola’s men hammer Burnley again


Riyad Mahrez grabbed a hat-trick as Manchester City roared back into goalscoring form with a 5-0 win over their whipping boys Burnley.

Benjamin Mendy, with his first for the club, and Ferran Torres also registered in Saturday’s rout at the Etihad Stadium.

It could even have been worse for the Clarets but a late own goal by stand-in goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and an earlier header from Torres were disallowed while Kevin De Bruyne hit the post.

It was Burnley’s fourth successive 5-0 loss at this venue.

City have lacked their usual cutting edge in front of goal this season, not helped by Sergio Aguero’s injury problems. The Argentinian was again absent following what manager Pep Guardiola described as “a little disturbance in his knee” but, on this particular occasion, he was not missed.

City had only scored 10 goals in their opening eight Premier League games but, if they could have chosen any opponent to face after criticism of their lack of potency, it was Burnley.


It was certainly a chastening experience for Northern Ireland keeper Peacock-Farrell, who was handed his Premier League debut in the absence of Nick Pope.

He was picking the ball out of the net within six minutes after James Tarkowski gave away possession and City swept upfield. De Bruyne fed Mahrez in the area and the Algerian took a touch before bending in a fine low shot.

Burnley, whose midfield contained another debutant in 20-year-old Josh Benson, were overrun as City applied more pressure.

Kyle Walker fired over before Mahrez doubled the lead on 22 minutes. Quick-thinking Walker found him in space in the area with a quickly-taken throw-in and he took full advantage by dancing around Ben Mee and Tarkowski and firing in another curling shot off the post.

A really impressive display from City

Peacock-Farrell recovered to palm over after De Bruyne spotted him off his line but he was almost left red-faced after a looping header from Torres hit the post and bounced in off him. Fortunately for the keeper, a flag was raised.

City did make it three five minutes before the interval. Again De Bruyne was the provider, picking out Mendy with a deep cross to the far post. The Frenchman buried a low volley across goal.

The one-way traffic continued after the break and De Bruyne went close after cutting in from the right.

The only surprise was City had to wait until the 66th minute to register their fourth. Torres claimed it from close range, tucking away his fifth for the club – but first in the Premier League – from a Gabriel Jesus lay-off after a surging run by Walker.

The fifth came moments later, Mahrez completing his first treble since netting three for Leicester against Swansea five years ago as he raced in to head home a cross from substitute Phil Foden.

City then thought they had another as Peacock-Farrell fumbled the ball into his own net after stopping a Jesus shot but VAR ruled the Brazilian was fractionally offside.

De Bruyne also went close as he thumped a shot against the post in injury time.
