Lily James was flirting with another married man, Rebecca co-star Armie Hammer


Dominic West isn't the only married man Lily James has intertwined her name with.

Sources close to Rebecca co-star Armie Hammer and his wife say their marriage tumbled in the fall of 2019 after finding passionate lyrics and letters from a mysterious woman who signed herself “Adeline”.

Adeline's real identity is a mystery. Interestingly, around the same time as the apparent Dalliance, Armie was filming Rebecca, which was released on Netflix on Wednesday, with co-star Lily James.

It was Lily's intimate break with new co-star Dominic West in Rome this week that became the subject of frenzied international speculation after they were photographed at several compromising clinics.

And while her Mrs. de Winter character doesn't have a first name in the adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's classic novel, James was referred to as Adeline on the movie call sheets and on her trailer, sources claim.

Adeline is also the name of a character in another du Maurier novel, Hungry Hill.

This week, sources on the set of The Mail reported that Lily James appeared to be flirting with her then-very-married co-star Hammer, despite knowing the father of two was happily married to Elizabeth Chambers, 38.

By the time, former Downton star James' relationship with longtime boyfriend, 37-year-old actor Matt Smith, had cooled, and observers said the beauty was "struck" by Hammer from the moment she looked at him be.

A source said, “It wasn't subtle. And he was interested, no doubt. She touched him constantly and looked at him smoldering for a long time. & # 39;

They added: “While he was filming, he chose to spend weeks in the English countryside instead of returning to his family who were also in the UK. It's all very typical of him. & # 39;

Things eventually collapsed when Chambers discovered passionate messages between Hammer and the woman who called herself Adeline, the source said. Hammer also had a number saved on his phone under the same name.

Chambers was "devastated" and started a downward spiral that ended when Hammer and Chambers jointly announced that they were divorced in July after 10 years of marriage.

Hammer and James began filming Netflix's adaptation of the gothic novel Rebecca in the UK in June 2019 in Devon, Dorset and Hertfordshire.

They added, “While he was filming, he chose to spend weeks in the countryside instead of returning home to see his family, despite being away for several months in a row. It's all very typical of him. & # 39;

When filming was completed in August, Hammer and his family returned to Los Angeles, but weeks later he returned to London alone.

After his return to Los Angeles, things really got to the point of no return after Chambers discovered news between Armie and "Adeline," the source said.

"Elizabeth was devastated, heartbroken," they explained.

“But they had 13 wonderful years together. She didn't want to throw away her marriage because of indiscretion.

“She is an amazing woman. She didn't deserve it. You couldn't ask for a more stunning devoted woman and she is a great mom to your two little ones. "

Chambers decided to hold out and work on their marriage with Hammer, even going to couple therapy. They had plans to renew their vows.

Chambers and Hammer were in the middle of their therapy when Covid-19 struck in mid-March. In April, they announced that their family was quarantined in the Cayman Islands – where Hammer had lived for five years as a child.

But the source stated that Hammer couldn't get up close and personal and said after two months he would be returning to Los Angeles.

He went to Miami, however, and accidentally sent Chambers a sexually explicit text from another woman who she knew was not meant for her, the insider said.

That was the final straw for Chambers, and on July 10, they both issued an identical statement announcing their split: “Thirteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners, and then parents.

"It's been an incredible journey, but together we decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage.

“As we move into this next chapter, our children and our relationships as fellow parents and dear friends will remain our priorities.

"We understand that this message is suitable for public dialogue, but in the interests of our children and families, we ask for privacy, compassion and love during this time."

According to divorce papers, they have each given a different separation date, which could affect the maintenance payments Hammer has to pay if they have actually been married for less than 10 years. The couple married in May 2010.
