A woman has accused Armie Hammer of violently raping her for four hours and said she feared that the actor was going to kill her.
Effie has been contacted by many others who allege that they have also been victimized by Hammer during their sexual relationships with him, according to Allred, who said her client decided to speak out in order to warn women of Hammer’s alleged abuse. Another one of Hammer’s former girlfriends, Paige Lorenze, has also said in media interviews that she met Hammer on Instagram when she was 20, seemingly establishing a pattern for Hammer.

On April 24, 2017, Armie Hammer violently raped me for over four hours in Los Angeles,” Effie said, “during which he repeatedly slapped my head against a wall, bruising my face. He also committed other acts of violence against me to which I did not consent.”
Effie Angelova Allegations
Effie also alleged Hammer injured her feet during the attack so that she wouldn’t be able to escape and thwarted her other attempts to get away.
Hammer’s attorney Andrew Brettler denied the allegations in an emailed statement to Insider, which also disclosed Effie’s full name. Insider confirmed the woman’s identity but is choosing not to publish Effie’s last name, as she chose not to give it during her press conference.
“[Effie’s] own correspondence with Mr. Hammer undermines and refutes her outrageous allegations,” Brettler wrote. “As recently as July 18, 2020, [she] sent graphic texts to Mr. Hammer telling him what she wanted him to do to her. Mr. Hammer responded making it clear that he did not want to maintain that type of relationship with her.”
Brettler also included a screenshot in his email to Insider, which featured sexual text messages appearing to be from Effie sent to Hammer, who then declined her advances.
“From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory,” the statement said.
Brettler concluded by calling Effie’s accusations an “attention seeking and ill-advised legal bid” that “will only make it more difficult for real victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve.”
When reached for comment by Insider, Allred rejected Brettler’s claims.
Effie said in the press conference, which Insider obtained a transcript of, she met Hammer on Facebook in 2016, when she was 20, but alleged their relationship quickly spiraled into one in which Hammer abused her “mentally, emotionally and sexually.”
“Looking back, it is now clear to me he was employing manipulation tactics in order to exert control over me, until I started to lose myself,” Effie said, alleging that Hammer would regularly “test” her devotion to him “as he became increasingly more violent.”
According to a tweet by Greg Milam, the US correspondent for Sky News, the Los Angeles Police Department has “launched a sexual assault investigation over allegations of rape and assault made against the actor Armie Hammer.”
When reached by Insider, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Hammer “is the main suspect in an alleged sexual assault investigation initiated in February 3 of this year.”
Hammer began trending on social media in January after he was accused of sending NSFW direct messages that involved discussions of sexual acts and cannibalism. He then announced he was stepping down from a planned movie with Jennifer Lopez, “Shotgun Wedding.”
In a statement to Variety, the actor said then: “I’m not responding to these bulls— 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.”
