Let's start from the beginning. A little over a week ago, unverified screenshots of Armie Hammer talking about being "100% a cannibal" were shared across social media.
The unverified messages — shared and amplified by the account @houseofeffie — appear to show Armie talking about disturbing topics, like cannibalism, drinking blood, and rough sex/rape fantasies.
Since these allegations have surfaced, Armie's ex Courtney Vucekovich — who dated Armie in 2020 from June to October — has spoken out. “He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” she told Page Six.
And now, Armie's other ex, Paige Lorenze, has too. On Friday, the 22-year-old model spoke with DailyMailTV and revealed more disturbing details about their relationship.
Paige — who dated Armie for four months in late 2020 — said that on the first night they spent together, Armie had her watch the movie Secretary with Maggie Gyllenhaal. "He wanted me to relate to her emotional problems in the way she finds purpose in life through a dominant partner and BDSM."
"Once, he said, ‘If you did not tell me to stop I would eat a piece out of you.’ And he was serious too. It was like he actually wanted to eat my flesh away.”
Paige also described in harrowing detail how Armie carved an A into her:
He would love to do knife play, where he would wave the blade above me or glide it across my skin. He was obsessed with it, and usually he did not cut me. However, that night he decided he wanted to brand me as his property and carve his name on my body. He tried to rationalize it as his gesture of his commitment to us being together for the long-term. I wasn’t sure he was serious, as he looked over my body and said: ‘Where should I carve an A on you?’ Before I could process it, he plunged the tip of the knife into my flesh just above my vagina. The pain was excruciating, but I did not want to seem weak, despite the discomfort. I froze as he smiled at his work. He then said the cut was not deep enough, even though it was about an inch – the whole tip of the blade. He said he wanted to collect a kitchen knife to make it bigger, but then as it bled, he started licking it. This continued for a few minutes. And I kind of blanked it all out. I was concerned that the wound was going to get infected. I had to clean it and put a Band-Aid on afterwards.
Paige reportedly said that Armie knew she was upset about the wound. "He knew I was upset, but did not say sorry. The next day he even told people about what he had done. I was upset, embarrassed, and humiliated, but he insisted: ‘You should be proud of it. I would not tell anyone who did not think it was awesome.’"
"His actions and behavior are dangerous and emotionally and psychologically damaging. He is saying people are kink- shaming him and should not comment on his sex life, but BDSM is a smoke screen for him wanting to hurt women. You can be just as traumatized by consensual sex. It’s unacceptable that he coerces women into agreeing to let him hurt them.”
Armie's lawyer responded to Paige's interview in a statement to DailyMail, saying, "These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory."
Shortly after this story was published, Paige stated she wanted to make it "very clear" that some of the quotes from her DailyMail interview were falsified. She added: "The media has twisted a lot of my words, and put words in my mouth to make corny headlines. I am so disappointed but not surprised. Just know that a lot of this is trash and not from me."
