Armie Hammer has reportedly been “cut off” from his family, leading him to land a job selling timeshares at a resort in the Cayman Islands.
A hotel flyer was posted on social media with a photograph of someone who closely resembled the actor working as a concierge. Armie’s lawyer denied it was him, but days later, sources have confirmed to multiple outlets that the actor is selling timeshares at Morritt’s Resort.
Armie “is currently selling timeshares because he needs the money,” a source told People magazine.
“His dad won’t help him anymore, and he’s been cut off, so he’s got to work.”
Armand Hammer was the great-grandfather of Armie Hammer. The billionaire oil tycoon was best known for Occidental Petroleum. He ran the company from 1957 until his death in 1990.
Armand was also well known for his scandals, and a book was written about the billionaire’s life in 1996 by Jay Epstein, “Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer.”
Epstein told the story of a man who had many mistresses, laundered money and participated in Soviet espionage. He hung around with important people, including Prince Charles and Senator Al Gore Sr.
Armand also made appearances at many presidential inaugurations, including Franklin D. Roosevelt’s, Ronald Reagan’s, and George H. W. Bush’s.
The Hammer family did not create the baking soda brand Arm & Hammer, but Armand did invest in the company after attempting to buy it, according to Vanity Fair.
Armie Hammer’s father Michael Hammer was given Armand’s business empire once the billionaire passed, ultimately bypassing Armand’s own son Julian. Michael continues to run the Hammer International Foundation, the Armand Hammer Foundation and a handful of other businesses, according to reports.
Michael is known for his party boy persona, similar to that of Armie himself.
The actor previously explained how his father met his mother, Dru Ann Mobley, in an interview with Vulture.
“My dad was supposed to be on a flight, went to the airport and got hammered and passed out … He missed his flight, woke up and was like, ‘Oh God, I have a meeting,'” he recalled.
Michael rebooked his flight and ended up sitting next to Mobley. The two later married and welcomed Armie and his brother Viktor.
The actor’s parents divorced in 2012 after 27 years of marriage.
