'Consensual non-consent': Armie Hammer's BIZARRE response to rape allegations
CAYMAN ISLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM: Two years after sexual abuse accusations, Armie Hammer speaks about rape, abuse allegations, career downfall, and details of his own abuse during childhood. In his first interview since his career went downhill, Hammer admits that he has been emotionally abusive towards the women he dated. However, he denied being a rapist.
During the talk, the actor who was out of the limelight following serious allegations against him over rape, sexual misconduct including BDSM fantasies, and cannibalistic fetishism, denied the accusations leveled against him. He told the Air Mail that in his four-year relationship with the woman who accused him, identified as 'Effie,' there was no criminal wrongdoing. 'Effie' alleged that in 2017, the 36-year-old actor abused her “mentally, emotionally and sexually” and violently raped her when she was 20 years old.

'A scene that was her idea'
Talking about the row of rape allegations against him, the 'Call Me By Your Name' star claimed, “This alleged rape was a scene that was her idea.” He also revealed that in 2016, Effie sent the actor a message via Facebook and since then they began their relationship.
“She planned all of the details out, all the way down to what Starbucks I would see her at, how I would follow her home, how her front door would be open and unlocked, and I would come in, and we would engage in what is called a ‘consensual non-consent scene,’ CNC,” he stated.
The embattled actor then called the act a one-time happening and claimed that it was she who introduced him to the "scene." He also revealed that he talked about the affair to his now-estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers after Effie threatened Hammer to tell her. Hammer recalled telling Chambers that, “I don’t like who I’m becoming. I’m f–ked up every single day, all day. I’m miserable, I’m unhappy, and I’m having an affair. And I don’t know how to stop any of these things, and I can’t do this alone. I need your help.” The actor shares two children, Harper, 8, and Ford, 6, with Chambers.
What are the allegations?
Serious allegations against Hammer became public in March 2022 after Effie stated that the actor was becoming “increasingly more violent” in their relationship. She also shared that she feared Hammer was “going to kill” her. Since her revealing the alleged abuse, Hammer has been placed under the LAPD investigation.
Though he denied the allegations against him from multiple women, he expressed that he is ready to own up to his own wrongdoings and told Air Mail that he would “take accountability for the fact that I was an a–hole, that I was selfish, that I used people to make me feel better, and when I was done, moved on.”
“I’m now a healthier, happier, more balanced person. I’m able to be there for my kids in a way I never was,” he added. “I’m truly grateful for my life and my recovery and everything. I would not go back and undo everything that’s happened to me,” he added.
