Armie Hammer and estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers have dramatically dropped the price of their $5.8million Hancock Park home, which was listed in September.

The former couple reportedly lowered the asking price of the 6,275-square-foot residence by a whopping $800,000, according to the New York Post on Thursday.

The colossal reduction comes just days after direct messages depicting fantasies of rape and cannibalism, allegedly sent by Hammer to an unidentified woman, were leaked on social media.

The disturbing exchanges were leaked publicly by an anonymous, now-private account, House of Effie, on Sunday, which prompted Hammer to trend on Twitter.

The graphic Instagram DMs that Hammer allegedly penned included talk of rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism, with one message explicitly stating: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’  

In another one of the many eyebrow raising messages, Armie allegedly said he ‘wanted to cut off’ his girlfriend’s toe and ‘keep it in his pocket.’

On Wednesday, The Call Me By Your Name actor, 34, broke his silence on the matter in a statement to DailyMail.com.

‘I’m not responding to these b******* 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,’ said Hammer to DailyMail.com.

He added: ‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.’

Armie was referring to his upcoming rom-com film Shotgun Wedding, where he was set to star opposite Jennifer Lopez.

DailyMail.com also obtained concerning videos on Wednesday showing Hammer looking ‘out of it’, cracking open a beer while driving and licking white powder off his friend’s hand.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. star is seen in two separate clips, declaring ‘s**t’s getting weird’ after polishing off a white substance from a friend’s hand and in another saying ‘sending love, boys’ after taking a swig from his beer can while behind the wheel.  

Hammer’s estranged wife is said to be distraught over the leaked messages, which date back to 2016 and some are as recent as February 2020, a time period where Hammer was still married.

A close friend exclusively told DailyMail.com: ‘Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn’t know.’ 

Elizabeth and Armie announced their 10-year marriage was over in July, as a source close to Chambers admitted she was aware of his infidelities, including being romantically involved with Lily James as DailyMail.com revealed last year, which led to their split.

When she filed for divorce in July, Elizabeth asked to be awarded primary physical custody of their children and to have joint legal custody with Hammer, according to court documents obtained by People.

Since then, Chambers has been raising the couple’s daughter and son in the Cayman Islands, while Armie remains in Palm Springs, California.

Hammer’s alleged extreme kinks are a ‘complete shock’ to Elizabeth, with the friend adding: ‘Armie appears to be a monster.’ 

‘A lot of these women have reached out to Elizabeth and although she didn’t want to admit it to herself at first, she knows now they are speaking the truth.

‘Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn’t know.’

The insider claims that one of the women who contacted Chambers about her experience with Hammer was left so traumatized that she entered an ‘intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse.’

The source added: ‘He preyed upon her when she was coming out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable, the things he wanted to do made her very scared.’

With the recent price drop on the home she once shared with her ex husband, Elizabeth will hopefully be able to distance herself as much as possible from the defamed star.

The estranged couple, who share daughter Harper Grace, six, and son Ford Armand, four, lived in their luxe Hancock Park home from 2018 until their split over the summer.

They originally bought the home in 2018 for $4.7M.

It’s an English Tudor-style mansion that was built in the 1920s when show business was in its early days in Southern California and Gloria Swanson, Rudolph Valentino and Douglas Fairbanks Sr were major stars. 

The home has an impressive facade as it is three stories high and has many Tudor touches such as a red brick exterior and lead glass windows with pitched roofs.

The 6,275 square foot property has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, and clearly has been nicely remodeled by the exes who lightened up the walls and made the home look overall more polished.
