Armie Hammer's mom Dru Ann Mobley slammed for not addressing actor's addiction as he checks into rehab
Months after very serious allegations of rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism, Armie Hammer checked into an in-patient treatment facility to reportedly address his issues with drugs, alcohol and sex. According to a Vanity Fair report, three sources have claimed that the troubled actor checked himself into the facility in the wake of allegations of sexual assault. Apparently, he’s been in treatment for more than a week.
In the wake of this development, social media users are actually blaming Armie's mother Dru Ann Mobley for abetting, in a way, all his misdemeanors and more. And how so? With her deeply-rooted religious beliefs.
Checking into treatment facility
“Everyone looks at Armie thinking that he’s had some sort of privileged life and that must mean there were no problems in his youth and everything was peachy keen," a close friend of the actor told the publication. "But that’s not necessarily the way things go," the friend added. "Just because you come from an upbringing where financial resources are plentiful doesn’t mean life isn’t without problems." According to the friend, Hammer’s agreement to enter treatment "is a clear sign that he is taking back control [of] his life and knows that this [is] a step towards his overall well-being."
Tryst with drugs and alcohol
In their interviews with the publication, the actor's acquaintances anonymously discuss his tryst with drugs and alcohol, revealing everything the actor has done. "He’s like a tank or something," says one person who knows Hammer. "He’s six feet five so he can literally drink a bottle of vodka and not feel it. His tolerance is crazy high for everything - I mean, he can eat five Big Macs and not feel sick. He drinks a lot and he smokes weed… I mean, there’s no drug he won’t do."
A woman who claims she dated Hammer last summer allegedly saw him take a half tab of acid before playing golf, then drink "about eight beers and four martinis" before they got into a fight and he drove cross-country for 17 hours, added the report.
Driving under the influence
Another source told the publication that it was very common for Hammer, who is the great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer, to drive around the city in an altered state. "He liked to get hammered on whatever drug is around him and go driving incredibly fast throughout the city like 140 miles an hour down residential streets, which is terrifying," the source said.
"If he’s too high to move, that’s about the only time he won’t move. He has this machismo thing. He would drink straight bourbon, shoot guns, get on a dirt bike with no helmet and tear ass through the desert. Maybe it was some sort of adrenaline thing," the source added.
'So much trauma'
In addition to this, the source says Hammer is "addicted to drugs because he has so much trauma that he cannot deal with stillness, face himself, or sit alone with his s**t."
This is where Armie Hammer's mother comes into the picture. Apparently, back in March, the publication had written a detailed story about Hammer’s troubled family life. The author of the story received a response from the actor’s mother, Dru Hammer, in which she offered forgiveness "for writing such a scathing article on my family. I don’t understand the position of destroying families in the press."
In the letter, she wrote that in addition to writing ill about her former husband, Michael Hammer, the paper can't stop writing ill about her son. "...Not to mention the way you printed “alleged” false accusations against my son."
"Every family has "something," but what I know is these Jewish Hammer men you tore apart in your article have all come to know Jesus as their Messiah. I believe that is why I was placed in that family," she wrote at one point. Finally concluding, "I am asking for mercy and Grace, as Jesus gives all of us and asking you to please stop degrading my family."
On Twitter, she is being called out for writing the letter, blaming her for not addressing the actor's trauma earlier. "I would bet lots of $$$ that Dru Hammer didn’t address AH’s issues in his younger years bcs she thought that prayer and faith would fix deep seeded issues instead of getting professional help and giving her son a fighting chance straight out of the gate," a user tweeted.

"Didn’t she throw holy water on #armiehammer and he later joked about it in an interview? This woman has some deranged white lady savior complex. AH has a history of being around toxic family men and women who treat him with kid gloves and people who enabled his toxic behaviors," the user wrote, adding, "Which is sad and not a surprising that he grew up abusing drug, alcohol and sex." "Ah finally, definitive proof that this family is healthy and normal," one user took a jab at the letter.

Even if the March 2021 article by the publication would have left some things to the imagination, users point out that the letter makes several revelations by itself. "I'm sure the mother hasn't had any part in the trauma?!? And I don't even know the whole story but this letter says SO MUCH!" Another user added along similar lines, "Yikes on several bikes. I'm SURE his parents had NOTHING to do with how much of a freak he is."

MEAWW had previously reported about Dru's very strong religious beliefs. The deleted tweet shared by Hammer reads, "I woke up sound 5 am this morning to my mom pouring oil on my head and praying very loudly in tongues while standing over my bed so she could get the 'demons out' of me".
