Armie Hammer has responded for the first time to disturbing messages allegedly broadcast by the actor that leaked last week.
He said he couldn't leave his kids alone for four months while filming Shotgun Wedding with Jennifer Lopez. Earlier Wednesday it was reported that he was pulling out of the film.
The social network star said, “I am not responding to these claims, but given the vicious and false online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now let my children shoot a movie in the Dominican Republic for 4 months. & # 39;
He added, "Lionsgate supports me in this and I am grateful to them."
A Wednesday report by PageSix claimed the actor had already left the project. The production spokesperson said, "With Shotgun Wedding's upcoming launch date, Armie has asked to retire from the film and we support him in his decision."
Meanwhile, another report claimed Lopez had also considered removing Hammer from the film.

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly slashing actor Armie Hammer from her upcoming rom-com Shotgun Wedding after disturbing news allegedly broadcast by the actor was leaked
"Jennifer is very concerned about the movie now that these stories are coming out," a source told The Sun.
A source expanded to The Sun: “There have been a lot of phone calls and discussions about whether you can still make the movie with Armie as the romantic lead.
"A lot of people have suggested silently banning him from the project and I think Jennifer might agree," the insider added.
"She's the producer on the film – does she want to act with him and pretend she's in love with someone who has been accused of writing these things?"
JLo, reportedly "horrified" by the alleged news, is currently being cast as Hammer's fiancée in the upcoming rom-com.
On Wednesday, DailyMail.com received information on videos showing Hammer "looking out of him", breaking open a beer while driving, and licking white crystals from his friend's hand.
The 34-year-old can be seen in two separate clips where he explains it gets weird after removing a white substance from a friend's hand and in another saying "send love guys" after he took a sip from his beer can while behind the wheel.
Hammer began trending on Twitter over the weekend after a series of sexually vivid Instagram DMs he allegedly wrote to a woman were publicly leaked from an anonymous, now private, account, House of Effie.
A family source describes his downward spiral into drugs and depravity.
The source said, "He's always enjoyed drinking, doing drugs, but never like that."
Hammer's estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, from whom he split in July 2020, is currently said to be "shocked and sick" at the recent revelations.
A close friend told DailyMail.com exclusively: "Armie had a completely different side that she didn't know. Whether it was always there and he was hiding it or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn't know." 39;

In another video, Hammer wears the same hairstyle and appears to be driving alone. The camera appears to be balanced on the dashboard and shows Hammer taking both hands off the steering wheel as he picks up a Miller Lite and breaks it open
In the first video, a shaved head rides a hammer while a friend is in the driver's seat.
A hammer with big eyes waves a green headscarf around his neck and wears gold aviator glasses. He pans the camera and says, "It won't be weird."
Then he shows a friend whose hand is outstretched with a tiny amount of tiny white crystals.
Hammer then licks the substance from his friend's hand before the man says "more, more, more, more" and tells Hammer to go back and remove the rest of the man's hand.
Hammer makes a face, sticks out his tongue and makes disgusted noises. He says: "Got it."
In another video, Hammer wears the same hairstyle and appears to be driving alone.
The camera appears to be balanced on the dashboard and shows Hammer taking both hands off the steering wheel as he picks up a Miller Lite and breaks it open.
Then he takes a long sip of it and exhales with satisfaction before saying to the camera, "Send love, guys."
Hammer's estranged wife is said to be upset by the leaked news that dates back to 2016. Some only date from February 2020, a period when Hammer was still married.

The two announced that their 10-year marriage ended in July when a source close to Chambers admitted she was aware of his infidelity, including his romantic relationship with Lily James, DailyMail.com revealed last year, which led to their separation.
But Hammer's alleged extreme kinks come as a "complete shock" to the mother of two. The friend adds, "Armie seems like a monster."
They said, “Many of these women have turned to Elizabeth, and although she initially refused to admit it, she now knows that they are telling the truth.
"Armie had a completely different side of her that she didn't know. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn't know."
The insider alleges that one of the women Chambers contacted about her experience with Hammer was so traumatized that she entered an "intensive rehab and therapy program" because of his emotional and possibly physical abuse.
They added, “He was chasing her when she got out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable. The things he wanted to do scared her very much. & # 39;
The Instagram graphic DMs that Hammer allegedly wrote to a woman included conversations about rape fantasies, BDSM, and cannibalism. In a message, the actor allegedly wrote to the woman: “I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you. & # 39;
Although the news was not verified, House of Effie attempted to prove its authenticity by sharing private photos allegedly from Hammer.
One contains an undated photo apparently sent by Hammer's official Instagram account, where he grabbed his neck, presumably to choke himself.

The Instagram graphic DMs that Hammer allegedly wrote to a woman included conversations about rape fantasies, BDSM, and cannibalism. They were publicly leaked over the weekend from an anonymous account, House of Effie, on Instagram
Another photo shows a man's hand splayed over a script on a wooden table and reportedly sent in an undated message from Hammer's Instagram account. There is a small tattoo on the man's ring finger.
In particular, Hammer has a similar-looking tattoo on his finger after Chambers' initials were inked on his ring finger shortly after they were married in October 2010.
They also delivered voice messages in which a man who allegedly is hammer describes his sexual fantasies and talks about the messages in question.
House of Effie stated that she initially shared a video pointing out her alleged affair with Hammer and prompting other women to come forward and make their stories go viral.
The user wrote: “Women came up to me with their affair stories when we talked, overwhelmed by grief for days and nights, without sleeping or eating, and some ended up in the emergency room.
“We decided together that we had to speak up after we were treated and how the women were treated by him in 2020. We cannot allow more women to endure what we will go through in the future. & # 39;
The prosecutor alleges the women that Hammer allegedly "reunited" affairs with recently and was able to put together "a five-year schedule" of his alleged activity.
They concluded that “if (Hammer) had an argument with his wife, he would reach his kitten and if they did argue, he would only reach his other kitten the next day with the same message. Of course, all battles revolve around (Hammers) mistreatment of women. & # 39;
It is unclear how many women are behind the allegations.
During this time, Hammer was still married to Chambers. They are parents to two children, daughter Harper (six) and son Ford (three).
The woman also shared a photo allegedly received from Hammer during their alleged exchanges with him, which shows a tattoo on his ring finger

In some of the alleged messages, Hammer appears to refer to Chambers.
In an exchange on Facebook in April 2017, Chambers was approached again. A woman asks, "Did you fix the problem?"
And when Hammer asks: "What problem?", She replies: "The problem that your wife walks in such a way that she lets go."
Hammer replies back: & # 39; Hahahaha. Not yet. But I bought a better pill tomorrow night to make sure I seal the deal. They knocked her out of first grade and we didn't even sit next to each other. & # 39;
Another message from Instagram on Christmas Day 2019 claiming she told Hammer's wife about her alleged affair.
Hammer supposedly writes: "As long as you promise never to do something like that again."
One of Hammer's exes, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, said she believed the shocking messages were "real" and later wrote, "It takes an army to hide a predator" in response to the allegations.
Henriquez tweeted Monday, "If you're still wondering if these Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are), you might be wondering why we live in a culture that is ready to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims to give. "
Henriquez, pictured on a date with a hammer on Aug. 31, later took to Instagram to add, “It takes an army to hide a predator. Behind every perpetrator is a team of people who work hard to cover up the path. & # 39;
The author reportedly blocked Hammer on social media shortly after they met in August. It is unclear how long they dated.
In an interview with Playboy magazine in 2013, he broke his “wild” sexual habits with women in previous relationships
According to Armie Hammer, the French erotic writer and philosopher Marquis de Sade is his dream guest at dinner
Armie Hammer dropped references to his reported sexual fetishes in multiple interviews before he was accused of sexual depravity and allegedly a "cannibal".
In a November 2020 Netflix interview for the film Rebecca with Lily James, Hammer was asked (in Spanish), "Which historical person would you like to have dinner with?"
To which Armie replied: "Marquis de Sade."
French philosopher and erotic writer Marquis de Sade
Marquis de Sade was a French philosopher and writer who was known for his erotic work in the 18th century.
De Sade's work showed sexual fantasies and empathized violence, suffering and sodomy.
The words "sadism" and "sadist" come from de Sade's work, in which he depicted sexual cruelty.
Hammer told Netflix that de Sade would be his dream guest at dinner
Henriquez previously posted a meme on Twitter showing a picture of her with a hammer, titled "How It Started," and a screenshot of Hammer's banned account with the words "How It Goes." The post was uploaded on October 30th.
Another woman Hammer reportedly dated recently, model Paige Lorenze, tweeted on Sunday: "Does anyone have a good therapist?" when the news first leaked.
Henriquez answered the post the next day and said to Lorenze: "Yes girl, I'll send you the number", accompanied by an emoji with a wink.
A request for comment sent to Lorenzes publicists has not yet been returned.
House of Effie also shared a clip from a November 2020 interview with Netflix in which he stated that his dream dinner guest would be the Marquis de Sade, a French philosopher and author whose works helped bring about the term "sadist" to describe sexual cruelty.
He was known for his libertine sexuality and his work showed sexual fantasies that included a strong focus on violence, suffering and anal sex.
Hammer, best known for his acclaimed role in Call Me By Your Name 2017, has appeared in films such as "Based on Sex," "Sorry to Bother You," and the impending Death on the Nile in recent years.
DailyMail.com has reached out to 20th Century Fox, behind Death on the Nile, and ViacombCBS, who is developing The Offer, in which Hammer is slated to star in order to get a comment on the allegations but haven't received a response.
In an interview with Playboy magazine in 2013, he broke his “wild” sexual habits with women in previous relationships.
He told the point of sale, "Well, if you're married to a feminist like me, it is … I don't know how much we can invest here without my parents being embarrassed, but I loved being a dominant lover .
“I liked the neck and hair grabbing and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetite changes. And I mean for the better – it's not like I'm suffering in any way. But you can't really pull your wife's hair. It comes to a point where you say, "I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do."
Hammer later blamed what he termed "over-sharing" for his earlier sexual exploits.
“Let's just say, in retrospect, it's 20/20. Don't drink during an interview, ”he told E! News.
However, in an interview with Elle later that year, he claimed a former girlfriend tried to stab him in bed once.
"A girl tried to stab me while we were having sex," said Hammer. “So I shouldn't be telling this story. She said, "True love leaves scars. You don't have any." And then she tried to stab me with a butcher's knife, ”he added. "Of course I broke up with her right away … seven months later."
"Does she want to trade with him and pretend she's in love?" JLo is currently being cast as Hammer's fiancée in the upcoming Rom-Com
In an exchange, Hammer wrote: “I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you. & # 39;
& # 39; F ** k. It's scary to admit, ”the message continues. "I've never admitted that."
The authenticity of the screenshots has not yet been verified, however the woman behind the House of Effie account shared new alleged correspondence with Hammer on Tuesday in which he apparently referred to her as his "slave".
"You only live to obey me and be my slave," said a message allegedly sent from Hammer's official Instagram account.
“I will own you. This is my soul. My brain. My ghost. My body. Would you come and be my property until you die & # 39;
The message continues, "What if I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it in my pocket so I could always have a piece of you in my possession?"
The actor broke his silence on Wednesday to address the allegations that surfaced on Sunday
As they were: Hammer was previously married to Elizabeth Chambers
The Instagram graphic DMs that Hammer allegedly wrote to a woman included conversations about rape fantasies, BDSM, and cannibalism.
It is unclear how many women are behind the allegations.
