Did Elizabeth Chambers Try to Leak Stories About Armie Hammer?

Co-parenting two young children with a man accused of rape, sexual abuse, harrassment, and potential cannibalism cannot be easy. But according to Elizabeth Chambers, she and her estranged husband, Armie Hammer, are “in a really great place” as they work to finalize their divorce.

“We talk all the time,” Chambers recently said to E! News. “We’re committed fully and wholly to our children, and to being together as much as possible in a non-romantic way for our kids.” She shares 7-year-old Harper and 4-year-old Ford with the actor and rumored time-share salesman. “Kids need their mom; kids need their dad. So there’s nothing we won’t do.”

In her recent interview, Chambers again refrained from responding directly to any specific allegations against Hammer, though she did cryptically admit to having heard “some surprises” in the past few years. She also revealed that she did, in fact, watch the docuseries House of Hammer, which featured disturbing voice notes allegedly sent from Hammer to women. Chambers declined to participate in the doc and originally said she wasn’t going to watch it. “It was obviously heartbreaking on so many levels and very painful. But at the same time, it exists. The past is the past and all we can do is take this as a moment to learn and listen, and hopefully process and heal in every capacity,” she told E! News.

Now another unnamed source has come out to accuse Chambers of attempting to expose Hammer in the media prior to the allegations’ becoming public. A person who claims to be a former friend of Chambers’s told CNN that she let Chambers use her name and email address to send messages to various media outlets regarding Hammer’s alleged affair with Lily James, his co-star in the Netflix film Rebecca (2020). She claimed that she would even speak to reporters on the phone while Chambers told her what to say and decided to come forward because she felt things had gone “too far.” It’s unclear if any of these alleged efforts to publicly accuse Hammer of having an affair were successful, though there was speculation in the press about a possible on-set romance. (Per CNN, a representative for James has denied the allegations.) Reps for both Hammer and Chambers declined to comment on CNN’s report.
