A supply, in the meantime, tells ET, “Elizabeth is horrified to hear the most recent allegations against Armie. Her number one priority is her kids and she wants to make sure that her children feel loved and taken care of during all of this.”
Chambers and Hammer, who cut up in July 2020, share two youngsters; daughter Harper, 6, and son Ford, 4.
During a press convention held by Attorney Gloria Allred earlier within the day, Effie alleged that the Call Me By Your Name star “abused me mentally, emotionally and sexually.”
“On April 24, 2017, Armie Hammer randomly raped me for over four hours in Los Angeles during which he repeatedly slammed my head against the wall, bruising my face,” she continued, alleging that he “committed other acts of violence against me, to which I did not consent.”
In an announcement offered to ET by Hammer’s legal professional, Andrew Brettler, the actor refuted the allegations, in addition to offered an alleged screenshot of an trade between Hammer and Effie.
“Effie’s own correspondence with Mr. Hammer undermines and refutes her outrageous allegations. As recently as July 18, 2020, [Effie] sent graphic texts to Mr. Hammer telling him what she wanted him to do to her,” the assertion alleged. “Mr. Hammer responded making it clear that he did not want to maintain that type of relationship with her. The screenshot below is just one of hundreds [Effie] sent to Mr. Hammer.”
“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. With the truth on his side, Mr. Hammer welcomes the opportunity to set the record straight,” the assertion continues. “From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that every one of his interactions with [Effie] — and each different sexual associate of his for that matter — have been utterly consensual, mentioned and agreed upon upfront, and mutually participatory. [Effie’s] consideration searching for and ill-advised authorized bid will solely make it tougher for actual victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve.”
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to ET that Hammer is the principle suspect within the sexual assault investigation that was initiated on Feb. 3, 2021, after investigators for LAPD’s Operations West Bureau Special Assault Section had been contacted by an legal professional representing a feminine.

An legal professional for Hammer denied the allegations in an announcement to the outlet.
On Feb. 1, Chambers commented on the allegations in opposition to Hammer, expressing on Instagram that for weeks she had “been trying to process everything that has transpired.”
“I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters,” she wrote. “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.”
