Armie Hammer has reportedly checked in to a treatment facility amid allegations of sexual abuse.
The "Call Me by Your Name" actor is seeking help for drug, alcohol, and sex issues, Vanity Fair reported, citing sources. The news comes two weeks after Hammer was spotted saying goodbye to his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two children in the Cayman Islands. He then boarded a plane headed from Cayman Islands airport to Orlando, Fla. where he checked into a treatment center on May 31, according to the outlet.
"Elizabeth and kids dropp[ed] him off and walk[ed] in as far as allowed," one source wrote. "A lot of hugs and seemed emotional."
Another source close to Hammer said the actor had turned to Chambers for help, saying he was ready to seek treatment and willing to stay at the Florida facility for as long as it takes for him to get well.
A family friend confirmed the news to Page Six, saying that Hammer "is committed to getting healthy and having custody of his kids."
"This 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," the insider added.
The controversy began when several women came forward anonymously with allegations of sexual assault against Hammer. Then a woman known as Effie spoke out claiming he raped her for several hours in 2017 and performed sexually violent acts on her. She opened up about the experience, which is being investigated by LAPD, earlier in March during a press conference arranged by her attorney Gloria Allred.
"He abused me mentally, emotionally, and sexually," she said, according to CNN.
Effie recalled how Hammer "repeatedly slapped my head against a wall bruising my face," adding that he "also committed other acts of violence against me to which I did not consent," according to Fox News.
Through his lawyers, Hammer has denied the allegations.
"From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory," a statement to Fox News read.
"[Effie’s] attention seeking and ill-advised legal bid will only make it more difficult for real victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve," it added.
