Armie Hammer’s ex Paige Lorenze says she felt ‘unsafe’ in relationship with the defamed actor


Armie Hammer’s ex Paige Lorenze is continuing to open up about her months-long relationship with the 34-year-old actor, whom she claimed made her feel ‘unsafe.’

Lorenze, 23, recently alleged to Vanity Fair that Hammer ‘started making rules for me of things I could and couldn’t do’ as their relationship progressed, which prompted her to pull the plug.

‘I was also emotionally dependent on him,’ she told the outlet. ‘[I broke things off via text] because you never know what you’re going to get with him—he’s kind of a scary person.’

Paige also claimed that Armie told her she ‘couldn’t have anyone else in [her] bed,’ which was one of many demands that led to her feeling uneasy with their dynamic.

‘He started making rules for me of things I could and couldn’t do, who I could have over, who I couldn’t.

‘And then I just started to feel really unsafe and really sick to my stomach about things,’ she recalled.

Lorenze informed Vanity Fair that she has since moved back to the East Coast and ‘wants nothing to do with the entertainment business.’

She never planned to speak of Hammer again, but after the Call Me By Your Name actor’s alleged graphic social media communications came to light, she felt compelled to come forward. 

‘I saw these screenshots and my stomach just dropped, like, Holy f**k,’ said Lorenze of her first time viewing the explicit messages. ‘Because he would say things to me…weird stuff…like, “I want to eat your ribs.”

‘I did love him in a way,’ she admitted, before adding: ‘I would’ve let him kind of do anything. He had a certain hold over me.’

Prior to his relationship with Lorenze, Hammer was reportedly seeing Courtney Vucekovich, a 30-year-old woman he began dating in June of 2020 – just a month before his wife Elizabeth Chambers would file for divorce.

Also speaking to Vanity Fair, Vucekovich admitted told the publication that her and Hammer ‘bonded over past trauma’ and that he often made her feel like ‘the only girl in the world.’

‘Day one, he makes you feel bad for him; it’s when he makes himself look like a victim. Then he love-bombs you like crazy; you’ve never felt more special in your entire life,’ she recalled. 

‘I’ve never seen anything like it. We’re in a restaurant, and I’m sitting across from him, and he pulls my chair over, right next to him, in front of everybody—and is hugging and kissing you.

‘You’re the only girl in the whole world. And then he starts the manipulation and the darker stuff.’

Consensual: Armie's lawyer told Vanity Fair in a statement that, 'All interactions between Mr. Hammer and his former partners were consensual. They were fully discussed, agreed upon in advance with his partners, and mutually participatory; Armie pictured in 2019

But according to Courtney, her romance with Armie took a dark turn during one alleged sexual encounter Sedona, Arizona that resulted in a bondage scenario that [she] was not comfortable with.’

She claimed that the actor was ‘drinking heavily’ at the time and that he got ‘cold and angry’ as he continued his attempts to convince her to ‘consent.’

‘I eventually consented and really regretted doing so,’ said Vucekovich, who ended her tumultuous relationship with Hammer in September and ‘checked herself into a treatment program for trauma’ soon after.

Armie’s lawyer told Vanity Fair in a statement that, ‘All interactions between Mr. Hammer and his former partners were consensual. They were fully discussed, agreed upon in advance with his partners, and mutually participatory. 

‘The stories perpetuated on social media were designed to be salacious in an effort to harm Mr. Hammer, but that does not make them true,’ the statement concluded.

Paige and Courtney’s interviews with Vanity Fair comes after it was reported that Armie had moved out of his Los Angeles residence, which was put on the market last year, in the middle of the night in mid-February. 

Movers were assisted by flashlight as they moved his belongings out of the Hancock Park house he once shared with his ex wife Elizabeth, Page Six reported at the time.

The website reported the disgraced actor arranged the move ‘under the cover of night.’

Hammer himself was not seen during the move, but one neighbor who observed the relocation relayed details to Page Six.

‘Trucks and a gaggle of movers descended on the property, working well after midnight and lit only by flashlights,’ the source told the site.

Hammer and estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, 38, split this past July after 10 years of marriage; they are parents to two children, daughter Harper, six, and son Ford, four.

Taking to Instagram in early February, Chambers said she was ‘shocked, heartbroken, and devastated’ at reports of Hammer’s conduct.

‘For weeks, I’ve been trying to process everything that has transpired,’ she said. ‘Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.

Chambers added that she ‘not be commenting further on this matter,’ as her ‘sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on [her] work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time.’
