Hammer has forcefully denied the accusations and had been living in the Caribbean where his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and two children are quarantining.
According to Vanity Fair, Hammer left the Cayman Islands late last month to seek treatment at an “in-patient facility for drug, alcohol, and sex issues” in Orlando.
The magazine says Armie reached out to Chambers in May asking for help, and that she and the family are supportive of him getting treatment. She, along with their kids, even dropped him off at the facility.
“Elizabeth and kids dropp[ed] him off and walk[ed] in as far as allowed,” one of the sources said of the family’s emotional farewell. “A lot of hugs and seemed emotional.”
Hammer and Chambers’ lawyers declined to comment for the article, but a Hammer family friend said the star “is committed to getting healthy and having custody of his kids,” adding, “This is a clear sign that he is taking back control [of] his life and knows that this [is] a step towards his overall well being.”
The friend added, “Everyone looks at Armie thinking that he’s had some sort of privileged life-and that must mean there were no problems in his youth and everything was peachy keen. But that’s not necessarily the way things go.”
The same source explained, “Just because you come from an upbringing where financial resources are plentiful doesn’t mean life isn’t without problems.”
Chambers, 38, filed for divorce from Hammer in July 2020 after 10 years of marriage.
In a March press conference, Hammer was accused of raping a woman in 2017 when she was 20 years old.
They were allegedly in an off-and-on again relationship for four years during which she claimed the actor “mentally, emotionally, and sexually” abused her.
