The world was shocked when horrendous allegations of sexual abuse and cannibalism were leveled against Armie Hammer. It has been some time since then and though the shock might have subsided, the anger has not. The recently released Netflix documentary series House of Hammer has also brought to light harrowing secrets behind the Call Me By Your Name actor’s abuse of women, and the problematic history of how his great-grandfather amassed his massive wealth. However, a recent revelation has added even deeper dimensions to the whole debacle. Hammer’s estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers allegedly had a huge role to play in the accusations against her kids’ father, coming to the fore.
Elizabeth Chambers’ allegedly selfish pleading to expose Armie Hammer
The first person to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Armie Hammer was a woman, who is now universally dubbed Effie. And she has now revealed that Elizabeth Chambers tried to coax her into exposing Hammer. Effie took to her Instagram handle to share screenshots of texts she received from Chambers. The gist of the texts is Chambers insisting, or rather pressuring Effie to press charges against the 36-year-old actor so she could get full custody of the kids.
The alleged texts from Chambers read:
“I really need custody of my precious children… Do you think you could make a declaration this week? It will all be private… I don’t want to pressure you, but your insight is much more in depth than the others we have.”
Part of the exchange showed Effie allegedly sharing that she felt “a tad bit suicidal” and didn’t “have time” to talk to Chambers, but she kept insisting selfishly with no apparent regard for Effie’s mental health. Further, Chambers even allegedly told Effie that she needed Hammer to leave the Cayman Islands because he was becoming “a risk” to their two kids, Harper and Ford.
The alleged text messages from Chambers read:
“He hasn’t even seen the kids, f–king everyone who walks and taking a new blonde out on his dads [sic] boat. I forced him to come here via court order to try to be a father and now he’s a risk to them. He needs to go. Again, I don’t want to push you, but with your declaration, we can get him locked up for the evaluation. I’m asking for the eval and scans. I don’t trust he won’t trick a therapist.”
Effie kept trying to explain to Chambers that Hammer was “scaring” her and the other alleged victims against pressing charges but the 40-year-old actress was adamant that Hammer could do “NOTHING” to hurt them. She allegedly insisted,
“We have one chance to stop this behavior and prevent other women and girl [sic] from being hurt and even worse. Charges need to be pressed, or nobody will take any of this seriously. As we have seen, they’re very good at deleting things from the internet. He needs to be legal and it needs to be official. He’s truly a psychopath.”
These alleged texts imply Chambers’ abject strong feelings against Hammer however she has never publicly owned up to them.
What a weird way to describe one’s “best friend”
Elizabeth Chambers’ representative stated on Page Six, “Given the extent and nature of allegations that were made, Elizabeth sought to determine the veracity of those allegations. She was very sensitive to all parties involved. The safety and well-being of their children remain her priority.”
However, Effie herself gave quite a contradictory statement on Page Six on Thursday:
“It’s unfortunate that Elizabeth, like the producers of ‘House of Hammer,’ is looking to profit from others’ trauma. She can’t call herself a feminist when her ‘best friend’ is an abuser. The ones who need healing are the victims – not the abusers.”
The term “best friend” is a jibe at the joint statement Chambers and Hammer released back when they split in 2020.
Several sources have claimed that Chambers was the one behind Hammer’s leaked pictures and video clips that showed him acting inappropriately. A source even claimed, “Elizabeth wanted Armie exposed just as much as Effie.” The agenda was to improve her chances of getting full custody of the kids. And an additional, subliminal motive was to get back at her husband for being disloyal and cheating on her.
Effie called out Elizabeth Chambers’ hypocrisy
Effie made the shocking revelations about Chambers merely a day after the actress talked to E! News. In her statement, she said,
“Our divorce is not finalized. But we are in a really great place. We talk all the time. We’re committed fully and wholly to our children, and to being together as much as possible in a non-romantic way for our kids. Kids need their mom; kids need their dad. So there’s nothing we won’t do.”
Chambers further added that Hammer is currently “focused on his healing.” Clearly, Effie did not take well to Chambers’ hypocrisy and decided to do the exposé. She even concluded the series of screenshots shared on her Instagram Stories with the message, “Just some things to keep in mind before anyone else keeps wishing rapists ‘healing.’”
Elizabeth Chambers is yet to respond to the entire counter-narrative that has now been presented to the public. Even the masses are divided by the whole revelation. While some think of Chambers as the villain, several support her decision claiming that anything is fair when done for the kids. However, her most recent statement about Hammer still raises questions we need answers to.
