In an earlier statement, a production spokesperson on "Shotgun Wedding" said: "Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision".

One of Hammer's ex-girlfriends, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, has also spoken out about the alleged messages, claiming she believes they're real, adding, "It takes an army to hide a predator", in reference to the allegations.

The timing of Hammers' departure comes on the heels of a series of social media DMs detailing sexually controversial behavior allegedly from his account have been leaked.

Hammer was set to begin production on the romantic adventure immediately, but will now be recast.

Hollywood star Armie Hammer has apparently dropped his role from Jennifer Lopez-starrer Shotgun Wedding, decrying "vicious and spurious online attacks" against him as the cause, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

Armie Hammer's eyebrow-raising past comments about his sex life have resurfaced amid the release of online messages that purport to be from Hammer that describe rape fantasies and cannibalism.

"It gets to a point where you say, 'I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do'".

"I'm not responding to these bulls-t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I can not in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic". Some of these "masty" messages that made their way online included, "I need to drink your blood".

Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers, married for a decade and together 13 years, announced their divorce in July. The women had claimed they were in sexual relationships. The messages were allegedly sent between 2016 and 2020, meaning they would have taken place during his marriage.

Last weekend, Armie Hammer started trending on Twitter - and it wasn't for good reason.
