Armie Hammer, the disgraced ‘Social Network’ star who left Hollywood in 2021 after being publicly accused of rape, reportedly battened down the hatches ahead of the start of the ‘House of Hammer’ documentary series chronicling his life.

“Armie is trying to prepare as much as he can for the ‘House of Hammer’ documentary,” a source told Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday. “He has an idea of ​​what’s to come. Despite this, Armie tried to move on emotionally and career-wise as much as possible.

The source went on to add that Hammer was committed to his sobriety before adding that his “friends were worried the documentary would crush him.”

A separate source told Entertainment Tonight that Hammer “has been focused on spending time with his kids and Elizabeth and trying to right his wrongs” and that “the trailer drop feels like a huge step back” in her attempts to co-parent with her children. his ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers. “It’s difficult for him to have this aired again in the public eye on an episodic basis since a member of his family is involved,” the source added.

Hammer was at the center of a whirlwind of rumors in January 2021 after messages started popping up online claiming he had sent explicit direct messages where he allegedly called himself a “cannibal”.

A trailer for the documentary included an explicit voice memo allegedly sent by Hammer to one of the women. “My bet was going to involve showing up at your house and completely tying you down and incapacitating you and being able to do whatever I wanted to every hole in your body until I was done with you,” a voice said. in the memo.

In the trailer for the series, Julia Morrison read of an alleged past exchange of messages with Hammer. “I have a fantasy of having someone prove their love and devotion and tie them up in a public place at night and use their body freely and see if they will fuck strangers for me” , she read.

Hammer, seen here in July in California, divides his time between Los Angeles and the Cayman Islands.

Following the rumors and allegations, Hammer moved to the Cayman Islands to be close to Chambers and their two children. Chambers filed for divorce in July 2020 after 10 years of marriage citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Hammer has since sold timeshares for a local resort, according to an unnamed source.

“I can’t confirm or deny it because Armie hasn’t spoken about it,” his attorney Andrew Brettler told Entertainment Weekly in an email in July about rumors of Hammer’s current occupation.

The documentary, which will premiere on Discovery+ on September 2, will also focus on members of the Hammer family. His estranged aunt, Casey Hammer, is featured in the trailer. “Through a wealth of archival material and interviews with survivors and family members, the dark and twisted secrets of the Hammer family are revealed,” said a press release for the series. “Behind the money and power lies a dysfunctional dynasty with its male characters exhibiting all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild.”
