Actor Armie Hammer is under police investigation for sexual assault

Actor Armie Hammer is under police investigation after a woman alleged she was violently raped by Hammer in 2017 for several hours and thought she was going to be killed.

An attorney for the victim contacted law enforcement, which resulted in the LAPD sexual assault division to open an investigation on February 3, a police spokesperson told CNN. Hammer has denied the rape allegation.
Op Donderdag, Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred introduced her 24-year-old client, identified only as Effie, who said she was raped by Hammer.
    Effie, who lives in Europe, said she had an on-and-off romantic and intimate relationship with Hammer from 2016 aan 2020. Sy was 20 when she met Hammer on Facebook, and shefell in love with him instantly,” sy het gese.
      She claims Hammer would often test her devotion to him and push her boundaries. As time went on, he allegedly becameincreasingly more violent,” Effie said.
        He abused me mentally, emotionally and sexually,” she said Thursday through tears.
        Effie accused Hammer of violently raping her for over four hours in Los Angeles on April 24, 2017. She said he committed acts of violence against her, to which she did not consent, such as allegedly beating her feet with a crop. It hurt for her to walk for the next week, Effie said.
          I thought that he was going to kill me,” sy het gese.
          Effie said she has lived in fear of him and tried to dismiss his actions towards her as atwisted form of love.Effie said she even lost interest in living because of what she alleges happened to her.
          In 'n verklaring, Hammer’s attorney refuted Effie’s claims asoutrageous,” saying all Hammer’s interactions with her and other partnershave been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.
          Effie[‘S]… own correspondence with Mr. Hammer undermines and refutes her outrageous allegations,” Hammer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, gesê. “As recently as July 18, 2020, [sy] sent graphic texts to Mr. Hammer telling him what she wanted him to do to her. Mnr. Hammer responded making it clear that he did not want to maintain that type of relationship with her.
          Brettler’s statement included what he said was a screenshot of an explicit text conversation between Hammer and Effie.
          It was never Mr. Hammer’s intention to embarrass or expose [haar] 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,” hy het gesê.
          Allred said it has beenextremely traumatic and triggeringfor Effie to speak about these allegations.
          Effie said she feels immense guilt in not coming out sooner but hopes her story will inspiresurvivors of sexual assault around the worldto come forward with their stories in hope of justice.
          Despite the emotional price that she has had to pay by speaking her truth, she has found the courage to discuss what she alleges has happened to her for two reasons,” Allred said. “Eerste, she wants to warn other women who may come into contact with Mr. Hammer of possible risks in their relationship with him.
          “Tweede, Effie has been contacted by many others who allege that they have also been victimized by Mr. Hammer in the sexual relationship that they have had with him,” het sy bygevoeg.
          Allred said there are no plans to file a lawsuit at this time, but that evidence has been turned over to law enforcement that might assist in an investigation of Hammer.
          We do think it is important that an investigation of these serious allegations is conducted,” Allred said. “We look forward to learning if Mr. Hammer, rather than his representatives, will be willing to assist investigators in their search for the truth.
            In Januarie, the 34-year-old actor released a statement in response to allegations by his ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze, where he stated that all sexual activities outside of his marriage werecompletely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon and mutually participatory.
            Hammer, who has starred in films such asCall Me By Your Name” en “Die sosiale netwerk,” announced last year his separation from his wife after 10 huweliksjare.
