Armie Hammer's Ex TELLS ALL HIS TWISTED DOUBLE LIFE
Star|February 01, 2021
THE ACTOR’S EX, PAIGE LORENZE, SITS DOWN FOR AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH STAR ABOUT THE ABUSE SHE CLAIMS SHE EXPERIENCED AT HIS HANDS.

IT was a gruesome cache. In early January, an anonymous poster using an Instagram account called House of Effie began sharing disturbing (and unverified) direct messages, purportedly from actor Armie Hammer, on social media. Screenshots of the DMs dating back to 2016 talk of rape, violent sexual fantasies and — most shocking — cannibalism. “I need to drink your blood,” read one message. “I am 100 per cent a cannibal. I want to eat you,” said another. After days of silence about the disturbing revelations, the actor finally released a statement Jan. 14. Announcing that he was dropping out of the upcoming film Shotgun Wedding, he called the accusations “buls**t” and said he would not respond to what he called, “vicious and spurious online attacks against me.”

Now, in a bombshell Star exclusive, 22-year-old model Paige Lorenze — who dated the actor from August to December 2020 — claims he introduced her to the world of BDSM (erotic practices involving bondage and submission), carved the letter “A” into her skin and told her wanted to eat her ribs. “To start off with, Armie was so charming,” Paige tells Star. “It seemed like a fun adventure to try new things.” But her romance with the handsome 34-year-old — who split from his wife of 10 years, Elizabeth Chambers, in July (they share daughter Harper, 6, and sonFord, 3) — quickly took a sinister turn. “He eased me into darker and darker things,” she reveals. “He manipulated me — and I liked him, which is the scary part.”
