The Armie Hammer scandal is gaining momentum. Los Angeles police have launched an investigation into rape charges brought against the American actor by a woman named Effie, according to The New York Times. According to the publication, Effie said that in April 2017, Hammer raped her for four hours, beat her head against the wall, and whipped her on her feet.
вЂњI tried to escape, but he would not let me do it. I thought he was going to kill me. Then he left without even thinking about what would happen to me, вЂќ said Effie.
Hammer's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, denies the charges. He said that the correspondence of the accuser with the actor contradicts her words. According to Brettler, the actor discusses and coordinates his behavior with his sexual partners from the first day.
Recall that in January, the network leaked personal correspondence of Armie Hammer, in which the 34-year-old actor discusses his sexual fantasies with an unknown girl. In the messages, the actor admits to her that he wants to вЂњeat herвЂќ and subdue her. вЂњI'm a cannibal,вЂќ Armie writes. вЂ” I want to make a small incision in your skin and taste your blood.вЂќ

After the appearance of the correspondence in the network, several former partners of the actor told about his fantasies on the topic of cannibalism and physical violence on his part.
Because of the scandal, Armie has already dropped out of two projects: the film Shotgun Wedding, where he was supposed to play in a pair with Jennifer Lopez, and the TV series вЂњThe ProposalвЂќ, dedicated to the history of the creation of the Godfather trilogy. Hammer insists that the leaked correspondence was forged, and he called the published messages a malicious and deceitful online attack.
