Armie Hammer, the 34-year-old disgraced actor who starred in films such as The Social Network and Call Me By Your Name, has reportedly checked into rehab following a slew of accusations of emotional abuse, manipulation, sexual violence, and rape.

According to a report from Vanity FairHammer checked into in-patient rehab in the Cayman Islands on May 29 and has been in treatment since. Sources tell Vanity Fair that Hammer checked into the rehab facility for “drug, alcohol, and sex issues.”

“He’s addicted to drugs because he has so much trauma that he cannot deal with stillness, face himself, or sit alone with his shit,” an ex-girlfriend told Vanity Fair.

As Vanity Fair points out, a social media user what at the airport when Hammer was departing for rehab and says he was with his estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, and their two children.

“Elizabeth and kids dropp[ed] him off and walk[ed] in as far as allowed. A lot of hugs and seemed emotional,” the Instagram user wrote in the since-deleted IG Story.

Hammer’s downfall began in January when several different women accused him of emotional and physical abuse on social media. In addition to the accusations, alleged screenshots of messages written by Hammer appear to show him describing sexual fantasies of rape and cannibalism.

Following the landslide of allegations, Hammer dropped out of his two upcoming projects — the Jennifer Lopez-starring rom-com Shotgun Wedding and The Offer, an upcoming Paramount+ series about the making of The Godfather — and was dropped by his agency, WME.

At this time, the only statement Hammer has made in response to the allegations came in January when he announced his departure from Shotgun Wedding.

“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” Hammer said.
