Armie Hammer amid DM scandal breaks his silence! After controversy surrounding DMs allegedly written by Armie Hammer trended over the weekend, the actor has decided to step down form his role in the upcoming Jennifer Lopez film “Shotgun Wedding.” In a statement, the actor revealed that he cannot leave his children, ” in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks.”
Armie Hammer has exited Shotgun Wedding, an action-comedy starring Jennifer Lopez, as the actor is engulfed in controversy. He’s also hitting back at “bulls*** claims” in his first statement addressing the alleged leaked private messages.
Lionsgate confirmed on Wednesday that Hammer asked “to step away” from the upcoming role, days after he became a trending topic on social media.
“Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision,” a production spokesperson tells Yahoo Entertainment.
Over the weekend, alleged disturbing messages went viral that were attributed to the actor, but unverified. The supposed direct Instagram messages talked about cannibalism, rape fantasies and more explicit sexual content. Multiple requests for comment to Hammer’s publicist went unanswered when contacted by Yahoo, but the actor dismissed the claims after Shotgun Wedding news was announced.
“I’m not responding to these bulls*** 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 told Variety. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers, married for a decade and together 13 years, announced their divorce in July. They recently reunited in Cayman Islands where Chambers had been quarantining with their two children, daughter Harper Grace, 6, and son Ford Douglas Armand, 3.
Armie Hammer’s ex Courtney Vucekovich: He wanted to ‘barbecue and eat’ me
Armie Hammer’s latest ex-gal pal says their romance was like dating a wannabe Hannibal Lecter — as the Hollywood star’s idea of pillow talk was fantasizing about which of her body parts he’d like to roast and devour.
“He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” app founder Courtney Vucekovich exclusively told Page Six.
“‘F–k that was weird,’ but you never think about it again,” she said of overlooking the odd behavior at the time. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite out of you.’ If I had a little cut on my hand, he’d like suck it or lick it. That’s about as weird as we got.”
