A 24-year-old woman, whose first name is Effie, recounted her story at a press conference with Gloria Allred at her side. She first met Armie Hammer back in 2016 on Facebook and their relationship is said to have lasted four years. Effie dated April 24th 2017 as the night where Hammer allegedly raped her. She described her face as being repeatedly slammed against a wall.
TMZ adds the incident was over four hours long.
An attorney representing Armie Hammer denied Effie’s allegations. In a statement to Page Six they said Effie’s own text messages (as recent as July 18th 2020) to Hammer were graphic solicitations that Hammer himself denied gratifying her with. He reportedly said he “didn’t want to maintain that type of relationship with her.”
Back to TMZ we get the alleged contents of Effie's message. "Helplessly horny and I just need to tell you cuz it's been sooo long since last time," before going on to describe what she wanted Armie to do to her.
The attorney adds a disclaimer: “It was never Mr. Hammer’s intention to embarrass or expose [Effie’s] fetishes or kinky sexual desires, but she has now escalated this matter to another level by hiring a civil lawyer to host a public press conference.”
The statement concludes that all of Armie Hammer’s interactions with both Effie and the rest of his sexual partners were all “completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.”
In response, Gloria Allred countered by saying “I challenge Armie Hammer to present all, not some, of his communications with Effie to the Los Angeles Police Department and answer all of their questions directly rather than through his lawyers.”
Back in January of this year, two other allegations about Armie Hammer hit the public. In the case of app creator Courtney Vucekovich, she told Page Six Hammer had this fetish for human body parts. He allegedly told Vucekovich that he wanted to rip off her various body parts (which in itself harkens back to a “cannibal” scandal involving Hammer and leaked DMs).
Vucekovich and Hammer dated for four months. Whereas another former ex of Armie’s, Paige Lorenze, told Page Six that the actor liked using knives when getting intimate. Something that allegedly didn’t stop at bras or underwear, but is said to have escalated to an occasion where “he allegedly carved the letter “A” near her vagina.”
Back when that story came out, Armie’s attorney pushed back and stressed mutual consent.
“We can confirm that Armie Hammer is the main suspect in an alleged sexual assault investigation that was initiated Feb. 3 of this year,” an LAPD spokesperson told Variety.
