Armie Hammer Instructs Lawyer Amid Allegations He Branded His Ex Paige Lorenze With The Letter A
The saga has now taken a new turn as Armie has officially hired a lawyer to challenge those allegations. In an official statement given by his lawyer to Us Weekly, Armie claimed that everything was consensual: “These assertions about Mr Hammer are patently untrue.
“Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.”And as the statement further suggests, Armie believes this is merely character assassination:
“The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr Hammer’s reputation, and communications from the individuals involved prove that.” So what led to this point? Well, in an interview given to The Daily Mail, Paige stated how it impacted her mental health:
“I want Armie to address his demons, see the pain and trauma that he has caused me and other women. He told me there’s a whole community that will do this stuff, that it was not criminal. He really thought that his fantasies were normal behaviour in the BDSM, non-normative, sexual kink community.”
She then revealed that it might not have been consensual but forced. “I thought that this is what it was. I thought I was safe,” Lorenze, 22, told the outlet. “You can be just as traumatized by consensual sex. It’s unacceptable that he coerces women into agreeing to let him hurt them.”
Armie’s cause has not been helped by the fact that this has not been an isolated incident. Many women have come forward to allege that the star has sent them Instagram messages centred around the issues of cannibalism. This has had such an impact on the actor’s work life, and it continued the scrutiny that has continued to follow since.
His latest withdrawal from his previous film, The Shotgun Wedding could be the first of many. In response, Armie told TMZ at the time: “I’m not responding to these bulls—t claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.
Lionsgate is supporting me in this, and I’m grateful to them for that.” Let us see where this goes. If you enjoyed reading this article, then check out our other features on the Daily Soap Dish.
