Armie Hammer’s Ex Says He Carved His Initial Into Her

When the Armie Hammer story first broke, I thought it would pass in a few days with nothing much to say other than “that was weird.” I really should have known better. The accusations made about Hammer were too weird and specific to be made up from whole cloth; people who make up fake stuff about celebrities tend to be really boring.

Armie Hammer’s ex Paige Lorenze spoke to Page Six and for the first time revealed details about what exactly Hammer is into, and it is oddly reminiscent of the most scandalous details of Allison Mack’s sex cult.

Lorenze, a 22-year-old college student who dated the “Social Network” star, 34, for four months last year, says they would engage in knife play, during which “he would cut off underwear or bras and use the knife and put it all over my body.” In one incident, he allegedly carved the letter “A” near her vagina.

“I kind of sat back and let it happen,” she told us. “I didn’t really know what to do or say … As sad as that is, I wanted him to like me and feel like I was down for what he wanted.”

She said she plans to have the scar removed.

So that is pretty creepy to me. Just the phrase “knife play” is a big no thank you from me.

Now, Hammer issued a statement about this, too.

An attorney for Hammer said in a statement, “These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.  The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation, and communications from the individuals involved prove that.”

Lorenze essentially claims that while she gave consent to Hammer and his weird fetishes, she didn’t really mean it and he manipulated her into it. This is a sort of tenuous argument because while most normal people in a relationship wouldn’t want to do anything that made their partner uncomfortable, not being a mind reader doesn’t make you a bad person.

With Hammer specifically, I don’t think we’re going to get any easy answers here. He clearly has some odd fetishes and his former partners seem to have not been entirely enthusiastic about indulging in them.

The takeaway for us watching from the outside is to respect your partner’s boundaries and have open and direct conversations about sex. It’s better for everyone if these sorts of situations can just be avoided entirely rather than litigated after the fact.
