ARMIE Hammer's estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, is "going through hell" after his alleged DMs about cannibalism were leaked.
A source close to Elizabeth exclusively told The Sun that she feels the actor "no longer values" their family.
Armie was accused over the weekend of sending disturbing messages about BDSM, rape fantasies, having "slaves" and "drinking blood".
The anonymous account House Of Effie claimed they were sent to her between 2016 and February 2020 and also alleged that he sent them to other women.
Armie was still married at the time to Elizabeth – who he has two kids with – Harper, six, and Ford, three.
They announced they're filing for divorce last July after 10 years of marriage, amid rumors that he had an affair with actress Lily James.
Amid the scandal, an insider told The Sun: "Everything is just so crazy and disturbing right now. Elizabeth is doing the best that can be expected."
The source went on: "Her kids are her number one priority, she has been going through hell and she is just trying to protect them.
"His behavior is atrocious.
"She was willing to fight for her family and repair what he readily threw away until it became very clear to her he no longer valued their vows or family."
The Sun has contacted Armie's rep for comment.
Armie and Elizabeth are currently battling over custody of their two kids.
The Social Network star accused Elizabeth last year of remaining with their kids in the Cayman Islands, despite reportedly vowing to follow him back to LA.
Armie started trending this week after his shocking alleged texts emerged about "cutting off toes" and "having slaves".
One screenshot reads: "I am 100 per cent a cannibal. I want to eat you."
"You just live to obey and be my slave. If I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession?" another says.
"I feel like the same way you are on one side of the slave spectrum, I am on the other side of the master spectrum and I can't ever imagine another slave."
"I don't even want one [another 'slave]. I would never feel as strongly. F**k. Too drunk and honest."
The message continues: "You are mine and I am yours. No matter what happens. And we've tested that to the extremes. Your master.
"I decided when you eat, when you sleep, when you c**, when you use the bathroom. Everything. Promise. F**king promise. You don't get to think about doing anything except what I say."
Armie finally broke his silence on Wednesday to call the leaked messages a "vicious online attack" against him.
In his statement, he also revealed that he'd been ousted from playing the love interest in Jennifer Lopez's film, Shotgun Wedding.
"I’m not responding to these bulls**t 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," he told TMZ.
"Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that,” he added.
A number of women have come forward to state the texts are really from the actor, who has been open about his past relationships and sex life in previous interviews.
Jessica Ciencin Henriquez – who was spotted on a date with the actor in September – claimed the disturbing texts are "real."
Jessica tweeted: "If you are still questioning whether or not those Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims."
Earlier on Wednesday, a source told The Sun that Jennifer, 51, wanted Armie out of Shotgun Wedding.
A source told us: "Jennifer is very concerned about the movie now these stories have come out.
"There have been a lot of phonecalls and meetings about if they can still make the movie with Armie as the romantic lead.
The insider added: "A lot of people have suggested quietly dropping him from the project and I think Jennifer could agree to it."
