Armie Hammer's Wife Elizabeth Chambers Releases A Statement Amid Cannibal Allegations
Social Network actor Armie, 34, hit headlines last month after an anonymous Instagram account, named House of Effie, posted a series of messages that they claimed to be sent from the star - who has vehemently denied the allegations.
The messages were highly graphic in nature, with the person alleged to be Armie writing they were "100 per cent a cannibal" and that they "wanted to eat" the person they were messaging.
Armie, who has since dropped out of upcoming romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding starring Jennifer Lopez, has denied the allegations following the leak, telling Variety: "I'm not responding to these bull*** 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."
Now estranged wife Elizabeth, who split with Armie in July last year after 10 years together, has publicly addressed the messages for the first time.
Taking to her Instagram page, she wrote: "For weeks, I've been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated.
"Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn't realise how much I didn't know.

"I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal.
"At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter."
She continued: "My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time.
"Thank you for all of the love and support, and thank you in advance for your continued kindness, respect, and consideration for our children and me as we find ways to move forward."
It has since been reported Armie has also dropped out of The Offer, an upcoming series which tells the behind-the-scenes stories in the making of iconic film The Godfather.
Armie was set to lead as Al Ruddy, the producer behind the 1972 classic film. The 10-episode series details Ruddy's experience working on the iconic film. The search is now on for a new series lead.
