Armie Hammer hoarded mannequins in the basement of his family home to practice tying women up, his ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze has claimed.
Lorenze, 22, opened up about her ‘deeply traumatic’ four-month relationship with Hammer last week, describing how it left her emotionally and physically scarred.
The former professional skier-turned-Instagram model provided DailyMailTV with an exclusive image of a sickening scar just millimeters away from her private parts that was left when Hammer allegedly carved his first initial ‘A’ into her skin during a kinky sex game.
Now Lorenze has revealed that Hammer allegedly learned how to tie women up by practicing on mannequins he stored in the basement of the $5.8 million home he shared with his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two young children in Los Angeles.
‘He told me that he had mannequins in his basement in his family home that Elizabeth and him were living at to practice rope tying on,’ Lorenze told The Sun.
‘It creeped me out, honestly. It was really strange. I’d never even heard of anything like that before.’

Lorenze’s story about the basement mannequins was supported by photos posted online by another alleged former lover, known on Instagram as Nastya D. Screenshots of messages (above) purportedly sent to Nastya D by Hammer showed a mannequin wrapped in red rope with what he called a ‘leash’ coming out of the back
Lorenze also claimed that Hammer talked about wanting to strangle his dog, a Welsh Terrier named Archie.
‘He would get angry at his dog and say like: “I’m going to kill this dog, I would have strangled him if you weren’t here,”‘ she said, noting that she does not believe he ever hurt the animal.

Lorenze said Hammer often tied her up, hit her with paddles and planned out ‘high protocol nights’ of painful sexual moves, which often left her covered in bruises.
She said her lover – 12 years her senior – was ‘sweet and kind’ but ‘manipulative’.
‘I think he definitely loved it that I was younger. He always had me wear lingerie and tied me up,’ she said.
‘I just kind of agreed to it and let it happen, I was just trying to please him.
‘He would say things like: “I want to bite a piece of your skin off and eat it,” he would bite me so hard. Sometimes it would basically break skin.’
A lawyer for Hammer has categorically denied the allegations against him, calling them ‘patently untrue’.
But Lorenze says she wanted to make her experiences known to help protect other women.
‘I’m not trying to kink shame at all,’ Lorenze said. ‘But I think that dangerous men [sometimes] use this as like a smoke screen for abusing and hurting women for their own sexual pleasure.
‘I am holding him accountable and I think he knows that he’s caused a lot of women pain, even if he doesn’t want to admit it right now. And there is power in numbers.’
‘This [situation] is terrible, it’s so unfair on his children and I think everyone is just so disgusted and shocked.’

In her interview with DailyMailTV, Lorenze exposed Hammer as an out-of-control narcissistic sexual deviant and said his wild fantasies and BDSM-fueled desires could ‘seriously injure another woman.’
She described how Hammer – who has claimed he’s ‘100% a cannibal’ in vile Instagram messages to other women – licked blood from the wound he left when he allegedly carved his initial into her.
The blond beauty said Hammer was fixated on biting her body, begging that she allow him to take lumps of flesh from her arm, before consuming them.
Hammer, who is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce and custody battle with his wife Chambers, also urged his lover Lorenze to participate in ‘role play’ sex, she said.
Even on their first night of intimacy, Lorenze claimed Hammer insisted: ‘You can either call me daddy or sir.’
Lorenze described their time together in Los Angeles as ‘like a real life 50 Shades Of Grey without the love’.
Laying out more of his sick fantasies, Hammer begged the Instagram model to have her ribs removed, so that he could barbecue them.
Even with his family at Thanksgiving, Hammer took along his leather bound BDSM case for kinky sex games.
In a photo shared exclusively with DailyMailTV Hammer is seen posing with Lorenze and his mother Dru Ann during the holidays, which they celebrated in Dallas, Texas.
In another exclusive photo the former couple are seen shirtless on a moped in the desert, Hammer smiling and wearing a cowboy hat.
Lorenze told DailyMailTV: ‘I want Armie to address his demons, see the pain and trauma that he has caused me and other women.
‘He told me there’s a whole community that will do this stuff, that it was not criminal.
‘He really thought that his fantasies were normal behavior in the BDSM, non-normative, sexual kink community. I thought that this is what it was. I thought I was safe.
‘But any man who is fantasizing about crushing bones, eating them, having sex with female limp bodies is a danger to all women.
‘And this is not me kink shaming, I want that to be clear.
‘His actions and behavior are dangerous and emotionally and psychologically damaging.
‘He is saying people are kink shaming him and should not comment on his sex life, but BDSM is a smoke screen for him wanting to hurt women.
‘You can be just as traumatized by consensual sex. It’s unacceptable that he coerces women into agreeing to let him hurt them.’
In a statement to DailyMail.com, Hammer’s lawyer said: ‘These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.’

Lorenze says she never considered raising the alarm or going to the police because naively she believed Hammer’s assurance it was normal.
‘I want him to get help more than be put behind bars, because I did see a loving, caring side to him,’ she explains.
‘It made me think that there is maybe hope for him to heal and move on from this.
‘I’ve spoken to people who knew him before all of this and they say that they don’t even know who this person is anymore, that he’s almost been possessed.’
Lorenze claims the actor is a heavy drinker and enjoyed taking ‘hallucinogens’ as well as party substances, during their time together.
‘He takes everything besides heroin. He did DMT, molly, cocaine, mushrooms and acid,’ she said.
And she feels he brainwashed her to take drugs with him and made her feel that by agreeing to BDSM acts, she ‘was satisfying him and making him love her.’
‘I was in love, orchestrated by him to make me be completely obsessed, feeling as if I would never be with anyone who was better than him,’ she explains.
‘I trusted him based on his experience, age, and the fact that I was being taken care of by him. But I really wasn’t – I was being hurt by him. He put me in a role, complimented me in ways I’ve never experienced, but he wanted control in sex – and I allowed him that.’
Lorenze says Hammer was focused on pushing boundaries with her from the first night they spent together.
He first contacted Lorenze on Instagram, before insisting he would welcome her to LA when she moved there from New York in September.
Hours after landing, he and some friends met Lorenze at a West Hollywood B’n’B.
She claims Hammer bought several bottles of wine and chocolate mushrooms.
Within a few hours, the celebrated actor seduced the blond and then took her back to a friend’s home, where he stayed.
During their first intimate moment he detailed his unusual desires.

Lorenze said: ‘I had bad bruises all over me when we were together. I was left with marks from him using a paddle. I was his own real life Christian Grey fantasy. There were teeth marks and bite marks all over me’
She added: ‘He was completely obsessed with biting me. He told me ‘be proud as they were just love bites.” Once he said, ”If you did not tell me to stop I would eat a piece out of you.” And he was serious too. It was like he actually wanted to eat my flesh away’
She said: ‘That first night, Armie told me he was a sadomasochist. I had no idea what he meant and thought it was a cult thing like Scientology.
‘Armie made me watch the movie Secretary with Maggie Gyllenhaal. He wanted me to relate to her emotional problems in the way she finds purpose in life through a dominant partner and BDSM.
‘Then he asked for ‘high protocol nights’, which is a standard trait in BDSM, where one partner sets out the night’s activities from outfits to what we do sexually.
‘We did a lot of those nights, which became darker and darker. It was what I had to do to please him.
‘I didn’t enjoy any of it, but Armie took advantage of me.
‘I would have done anything to please him and make him feel happy and satisfied.’
Hammer introduced her to his BDSM toys carried in a brown leather case, which contained ropes, small sharp knives, clothes pins, whips and paddles.
After trying various erotic situations using his bag’s toys, Hammer kept pushing the boundaries of pain for Lorenze.
During a night in late November, Hammer went further than ever with a set of custom made razor sharp hand knives as she laid bound by ropes at his mercy.
‘He would love to do knife play, where he would wave the blade above me or glide it across my skin.
‘He was obsessed with it and usually he did not cut me.
‘However that night he decided he wanted to brand me as his property and carve his name on my body.
‘He tried to rationalize it as his gesture of his commitment to us being together for the long term.
‘I wasn’t sure he was serious, as he looked over my body and said: ‘where should I carve an A on you?’ Before I could process it, he plunged the tip of the knife into my flesh just above my vagina.’

DMT is a hallucinogenic drug
She continued: ‘The pain was excruciating, but I did not want to seem weak, despite the discomfort.
‘I froze as he smiled at his work. He then said the cut was not deep enough, even though it was about an inch – the whole tip of the blade.
‘He said he wanted to collect a kitchen knife to make it bigger, but then as it bled, he started licking it.
‘This continued for a few minutes. And I kind of blanked it all out.
‘I was concerned that the wound was going to get infected. I had to clean it and put a band aid on afterwards.’
Traumatized, Lorenze still trembles recalling the night in detail, but revealed: ‘He knew I was upset, but did not say sorry.
‘The next day he even told people about what he had done.
‘I was upset, embarrassed and humiliated, but he insisted: ‘You should be proud of it. I would not tell anyone who did not think it was awesome’.
‘I rationalized it with his logic of us being a couple, to mask the truth – but I was completely manipulated.
‘It’s humiliating as it will haunt me forever. I will have laser treatment to get rid of the scar.’
Hammer, who often drank neat vodka or whiskey, adored their hour long BDSM sessions, calling them ‘beautiful’.
Lorenze said: ‘I had bad bruises all over me when we were together. I was left with marks from him using a paddle. I was his own real life Christian Grey fantasy.
‘There were teeth marks and bite marks all over me.
‘He was completely obsessed with biting me. He told me ‘be proud as they were just love bites’.
‘Once he said, ‘If you did not tell me to stop I would eat a piece out of you’.
‘And he was serious too. It was like he actually wanted to eat my flesh away.’
Hammer often enjoyed sex ‘several times daily’, but Lorenze recalls: ‘We never had completely normal sex because he always wanted something kinky’
Lorenze says Hammer even spoke about wanting a sex dungeon room similar to one seen in the movie 50 Shades of Grey.
Hammer’s obsession with her body and living out his sick cannibal fantasies did not stop there.
‘He wanted to find a doctor in LA, so that he could remove one of my ribs, as ‘you do not need it’; and then barbecue it and eat it while I watch,’ she said.
‘He said that more than once. He was very serious.’
Hammer often enjoyed sex ‘several times daily’, but Lorenze recalls: ‘We never had completely normal sex because he always wanted something kinky.
‘He liked role play, where I pretended to be a student and he was my professor.’
Up until 2020 Hammer was regarded as one of the most suave, handsome and brightest stars and family men in Hollywood.
But behind closed doors, Lorenze saw a ‘broken’ side of the actor, famous for films like The Lone Ranger, Social Network and Call Me By Your Name.
‘Armie is deeply insecure. He really opened up at times about his marriage break-up and family issues,’ she said.
‘He would cry in my arms, about how he loved his kids and felt Elizabeth was a great mother. But then would villainize his wife at other times.
Despite issues with his family Hammer still took Lorenze to visit his mother Dru Ann for Thanksgiving in Dallas. Lorenze says that ‘money problems’ meant the pair drove 1400 miles from LA to Dallas for the family gathering
‘And he also talked about all the women that he had been with, which made me think he cheated all the time. There are issues too with his parents, which haunt him. I didn’t ask questions, I just listened, because I felt we had an instant trust.
‘Now I think a lot of it was an act, attention seeking and part of his mind games. It was an Oscar winning performance.’
Despite issues with his family Hammer still took Lorenze to visit his mother Dru Ann for Thanksgiving in Dallas.
Lorenze says that ‘money problems’ meant the pair drove 1400 miles from LA to Dallas for the family gathering.
‘It was a rare moment when I felt like we were in a normal relationship, because he felt we were serious enough to meet his family,’ she recalls.
‘I immediately bonded with his mom, who was super kind and considerate. Even around them Armie would call me his ‘little pet’.’
But Lorenze sensed the tension between mother and son.
‘He told me that his mother poured oil on his head one night speaking in tongues, claiming he had demons inside of him.
‘That seemed weird, but she seemed a sweet traditional and Christian woman. But I feel now she knew he had a dark side.’
Hammer even took his BDSM leather case on the trip, but Lorenze ‘refused to have sex out of respect to his mom’.
Just days after returning home, in early December, Lorenze, still recovering from his branding, decided to call off their romance.
While he decried the ‘bulls**t claims’ made against him, he has yet to comment further after two of his former girlfriends spoke out about their ‘traumatizing’ flings with Hammer, as his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers is in ‘complete shock’ and ‘sickened’ over the allegations
‘It was too much. I felt sick to my stomach, insecure and no longer attracted to him – and he was getting stranger,’ she said.
‘I texted him that morning to say I do not think we can see each other anymore.
‘Perhaps I hoped he would change or try to make things right, but instead he replied: ‘okay I understand’.
‘He left soon after to see his family in the Cayman Islands for Christmas, but told me he did not want to go as he was lonely and sad.
‘It will take me a long time to get over this. It still feels like a fever dream and not real.’
Hammer’s romance came as he and ex wife Elizabeth Chambers attempted to work out joint custody of their children and requested that she return to the US to arrange a custody schedule.
In September, the actor told British GQ his separation from Chambers, whom he married in 2010, was a ‘seriously seismic event’.
‘I don’t think you’ll find anyone in the world who would ever say what I’m going through is an easy thing to go through,’ he said.
Hammer said when he and Chambers discussed their separation, they kept their focus on what was best for their kids.
Lorenze added: ‘Elizabeth is a really smart loving caring person and he is doing all of this with no regard to his family,
”We have been in touch. Elizabeth has been nothing but supportive of me and she wants me to get my truth out. I cannot thank her enough.
‘I feel this is so hard for her, she has been through hell with him.’
She concluded: ‘People who know Armie say he already has three new ‘pets’, one aged 19.
‘I am worried for her safety. After what happened to me, I cannot imagine what she is going through, even though she may not realize the physical and mental trauma.’
Lorenze plans to use her platform to support women, who are victims in abusive relationships.
