Robert Downey Jr. Paid For Armie Hammer’s Rehab Visit
Armie Hammer, who was blacklisted from Hollywood last year when he was accused of multiple instances of sexual assault, as well as expressing fetishized cannibalistic desires, is apparently being supported by Robert Downey Jr. He was dropped or written out of most all of his film and TV roles, and recently resurfaced when it was revealed he is living in the Cayman Islands selling timeshares.
Hammer comes from an extremely wealthy family as the great-grandson of an oil tycoon, Armand Hammer, but he is allegedly cut off from family support and is “totally broke,” according to sources. He had a prior connection to this area when he managed an apartment complex on the same island.
Vanity Fair reported that Downey Jr. paid for Hammer’s six-month stay at the upscale rehab facility The Guest house, and he is also letting Hammer and his family stay in one of his houses while they are in Los Angeles. Hammer is in California at the moment, but not planning on staying there.
Hammer and his ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers separated in July 2020, but she had allegedly been living on the tropical island with their two children as well.
Downey experienced significant career setbacks after his early career due to his multiple arrests and struggles with drug addiction since the age of eight. The actor managed to get sober in the early 2000s and revived his career, but insurance companies weren’t willing to work with him due to his prior unpredictability until Mel Gibson paid off his insurance bond for the 2003 film The Singing Detective.
