Armie was charged with sexual assault and sharing sexual fantasies related to cannibalism.

In January 2021, Hammer was embroiled in controversy after several women accused him of sharing sexual fantasies with them involving cannibalism.

The first allegation came from the anonymous House of Effie Instagram account. Unverified screenshots allegedly showed messages sent by Hammer to an unidentified woman detailing acts of BDSM and admitting the actor was “100% cannibalistic.”

The screenshots prompted several women to come forward with similar experiences.

Paige Lorenze, the actor’s ex-girlfriend, claimed that Hammer had a desire to smoke and eat his ribs, which was “definitely disturbing”.

“He was talking about finding a doctor to remove the ribs that I don’t need, the ribs that are on the bottom, and that he had a smoker in his house. He wanted to smoke them and eat them,” Lorenze told Fox. Digital News. “He wondered how they would taste, and basically said, ‘I bet they’ll taste good.'”

The app’s founder, Courtney Vucekovich, who also claimed to have dated Hammer, told the media a similar story.

Vucekovich told Page Six that Hammer wanted to “break [her] rib and roast and eat it.

Another alleged ex-girlfriend, writer Jessica Ciencin Henríquez, did not reveal any details about her relationship with Hammer, but stated on Instagram that she believes the messages shared by the anonymous account are “real.”

Hammer denied the allegations at the time.

“These claims about Mr. Hammer are patently false. Any interactions with this person, or any associates of theirs, were completely consensual in the sense that they were fully discussed, agreed upon and mutually participatory,” Hammer’s attorney told Fox News Digital.

“The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the aim of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation, and communications from those involved prove it.”

In March 2021, Hammer became a suspect in a sexual assault investigation after a woman accused him of raping her in 2017.

“He repeatedly hit my head against the wall and bruised my face. She also committed other acts of violence against me that I did not consent to, ”she alleged during a press conference.

The woman also alleged that Hammer abused her “mentally, emotionally and sexually” throughout their relationship, which allegedly began in 2016 after the two met on Facebook.

Hammer also denied those allegations.

“From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [the woman] — and all other sexual partners of his — have been fully consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory,” he said in a statement through his attorney.[The woman]’s attention-seeking and ill-advised legal offer will only make it harder for real victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve.”
