California prosecutors are reportedly reviewing a sexual assault case against actor Armie Hammer, as per an announcement made on April 11. The authorities said that they take the allegations of violence against women seriously and are thoroughly reviewing the case.

However, the Los Angeles police have stated that they have not turned over any new investigation into Hammer and the review is probably related to an existing case. The actor was first accused of rape in February 2021, which prompted a long LAPD investigation, but no charges were filed, and he has denied the accusation. Tiffiny Blacknell, the district attorney’s director of communications, did not provide any further details about the case.

In a recent interview, Hammer denied all the allegations against him, saying that all his sexual encounters were consensual, and he even attempted suicide over the accusations. The allegations of sexual violence have ruined his career, and a series of text messages surfaced online that revealed his violent sexual fantasies, including references to rape, violence, and cannibalism.

These messages were leaked by an anonymous Instagram account named “House of Effie.” A documentary, “House of Hammer,” also revealed some of the purported messages, including one in which he claimed to be “100% a cannibal.”

Hammer called the postings “vicious and spurious online attacks.” However, the fallout from the allegations has cost him several roles, and his talent agency dropped him. The person behind the Instagram account, Efrosina “Effie” Angelova, accused Hammer of raping her “violently” and “for over four hours” in 2017.

Hammer had previously claimed that they had a “torrid” but consensual affair that involved BDSM. Meanwhile, Hammer’s wife, Elizabeth Chambers, filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences in 2020.

Hammer’s father, Michael Armand Hammer, also passed away in November 2020. The actor has not yet commented on the recent announcement by the California prosecutors. If you or someone you know is suffering from abuse, please contact the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-4673.
