Moving on: Elizabeth Chambers announces new relationship after split from Armie Hammer
CAYMAN ISLANDS, BRITISH OVERSEAS: Elizabeth Chambers appears to have entered a fresh relationship after parting ways with her ex-husband Armie Hammer, who is currently mired in multiple allegations of sexual assault. The BIRD Bakery founder made her new relationship public by posting an image of several polaroids that showed her getting affectionate with her new lover.
The 'Food Network' star's Instagram post on Friday, September 16 showed her kissing and caressing her new lover. Chambers, 40, captioned the post, "Happy Friday 🤍," and based on the views visible in the shot, it appeared that the two were enjoying a day at a Cayman Islands beach. "She's super happy and in love," a source told People, adding that they had been dating for "over six months."
Chambers is withholding her new lover's name for the time being, but her friends have offered their support in the comments section. "You deserve it," wrote Erin Foster. "Happy for you my darling girl ♥️," Marissa Hermer chimed in.
Other friends expressed their love for the couple by posting heart-shaped emojis in the comment section, with others offering the new relationship a hearty "Yasss" in support. In July 2020, Chambers, 36, filed for divorce from Hammer after 10 years of marriage, alleging unresolved issues. They got married on May 22, 2010 and have two children together, Harper, 7, and Ford, 5.
An LAPD investigation is underway into the rape allegations against the 'Call Me by Your Name' star, who has previously denied them. He had earlier stated that any interaction he had with anyone was "completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory."
After the claims surfaced at the start of 2021, Chambers issued a statement on Instagram asserting that her "sole focus and attention" was on their children and "healing during this terribly trying period." She stated, "For weeks, I've been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated."
Chambers continued, "Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn't realize how much I didn't know. I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal. At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter."
"My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time. Thank you for all of the love and support, and thank you in advance for your continued kindness, respect, and consideration for our children and me as we find ways to move forward," Chambers concluded.
