Pull out that BBQ bib you keep in the bottom drawer because it’s about to get messy. Well, messier. As I’m sure you’ll never forget no matter how hard you try, Armie Hammer has been accused of tons of abuse and harboring cannibalistic fantasies which included allegedly telling a woman he was dating, Courtney Vucekovich, that he wanted to cook and eat her ribs. Now a second ex of Armie’s, Paige Lorenze, has come forward with a similar claim which includes the gory details of how exactly he planned to execute his plan.
In a recent interview with Star Magazine, Paige says that during their brief two-month relationship (Armie and the 22-year-old model dated from October to December of last year), Armie asked her “multiple times” if she would be so kind as to allow him to find a doctor who would surgically remove her bottom ribs so he could “smoke them, cook them and eat them,” since, according to him, she didn’t need them anyway. Imagine lifting your shirt in front of a man and the first thing he says is, “you going to eat those?” According to The Daily Mail:
Armie Hammer’s ex-girlfriend has claimed the actor was ‘100 percent serious’ about figuring out a way to remove her ribs so he could eat them.
Model Paige Lorenze said the 34-year-old Call Me By Your Name star brought up cannibalism ‘multiple times’ while they were dating from October to December 2020.
In a new interview with Star Magazine the 22-year-old said: ‘He said he wanted to find a doctor that would remove my ribs. He was telling me you can remove the bottom ribs so he could smoke them, cook them and eat them. He kept saying ”You don’t need them”.’
Even Marilyn Manson is like, “WTF dude?!” Unfortunately, that talk wasn’t the only awful thing that happened during Paige’s time with Armie. According to Paige, being with Armie left her with real scars, both physical and emotional.
Lorenze claims that not only did Hammer make clear he wanted to eat her ribs, but had carved the letter ‘A’ into her skin using a knife, saying it was ‘extremely painful’ and he later boasted about it to his friends.
Her remarks come as internet sleuths have pointed out that Lorenze’s body appeared to be covered in bruises during the few months she was dating Hammer, as photos from her Instagram seem to show purplish bruises on her back, legs and breasts. Lorenze claimed to Star that at first Hammer was so ‘charming,’ drawn to the handsome actor fresh off a recent breakup.
But things took a turn when Lorenze claimed Hammer ‘eased me into darker and darker things… he manipulated me – and I liked him – which is the scary part.’ Lorenze categorizes her experience with Hammer as ‘traumatic,’ saying she’s seeing a therapist to sort through what happened.
She said: ‘Consent is really complex, and saying yes to something does not negate the trauma you might be burdened with after the fact.’
Armie was also reportedly investigated by police in the Cayman Islands, and not over any of these allegations of abuse, but for posting a picture of a mystery woman in lingerie on his bed and calling her Miss Cayman, which Armie already apologized for after the Miss Cayman organization denied she was affiliated with them. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) said in a statement that they talked to Armie and the case is now closed:
“On January 15, 2021, the RCIPS received an allegation of misuse of ICT in relation to a suggestive video which had been posted on social media. Officers investigated the matter and spoke to the suspect, who was warned about his conduct, in accordance with the wishes of the complainant.”
What Armie’s been accused of is sick, wrong, and morally reprehensible and I’m not talking about his stated desire to consume human flesh. I have no doubt he could easily find someone, somewhere, who would happily sell him a pinky-toe to taste. That’s obviously not what this alleged behavior is about. That said, if QAnon had cooked up a conspiracy theory about Hollywood harboring a cabal of cannibals, they could have taken credit for at least one solid win last week.
