Last week, images of Armie Hammer surfaced on social media and in tabloids, causing rumors to proliferate. The images in question claimed to depict the actor, who was all but expelled from Hollywood following a string of sexual abuse charges, working at a Cayman Islands hotel resort.
Initially, a social media-circulated flyer stated that Hammer was working as a hotel concierge. Hammer was not employed by the hotel, according to numerous media publications, including Variety. Then, though, photographs of Hammer in what appeared to be a resort uniform were released.
Now, a source tells Variety that Hammer is selling timeshares at a hotel in the Cayman Islands and that all previous allegations to the contrary are false.
“He is selling timeshares at the resort where he is employed. This week, a source explained to Variety that he is currently working in a cube. The reality is that he is completely destitute and attempting to make money to maintain his family.

This source, who requested anonymity, claims that previous to working as a timeshare salesman, Hammer managed a Cayman Islands apartment complex. In order to be close to his two young children, who have been living in the Cayman Islands with his ex-wife, TV host, and entrepreneur Elizabeth Chambers, he has relocated there.
Prior to his career decline, a source informed Variety that Hammer had also spent time in a rehabilitation facility.
Hammer, who has been in “The Social Network,” “Call Me by Your Name,” and most recently, “Death on the Nile” for Disney, is the great-grandson of oil magnate Armand Hammer. The insider reveals that despite his family ancestry, he is not on the family payroll and must have a conventional and respectable job to make money because he cannot get work in Hollywood.
Hammer was dropped by his agency, WME, and fired from a number of projects, including Jennifer Lopez’s “Shotgun Wedding,” the thriller “Billion Dollar Spy,” the Broadway play “The Minutes,” and the Paramount Plus series “The Offer,” where Miles Teller replaced him.
Last week, speculations began when a poster picturing Hammer as a concierge at Morritt’s Resort in Grand Cayman circulated on social media. The brochure, which was uploaded (and then deleted) by the verified Twitter account of “Desus & Mero” producer Muna Mire, featured an image of the actor.
Variety noted at the time that Hammer was not working as a hotel concierge after an employee at the resort stated that the poster was a joke: Hammer was a visitor of the hotel and had just played golf with members of the hotel staff with whom he had gotten friendly.
The hotel staffer told Variety that Hammer’s golfing companions created the flyer and distributed it to a few rooms at the resort in an attempt to garner attention. A week ago, the hotel employee stated by telephone, “I could only dream of such notoriety.” When contacted at the time, Hammer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, also stated that the flyer was a forgery.
Then, when photographs of Hammer working as a timeshare salesman surfaced on TMZ over the weekend, a staffer at the Morritt’s Resort was sure that Hammer is not employed there, but they noted that he occasionally “hangs around” the property. This source claims that the hotel was attempting to shield Hammer, who is in fact selling timeshares.

Early in 2021, screenshots of women’s social media messages depicting Hammer as having cannibalistic fantasies began to circulate. What began as a joke snowballed into a media maelstrom that never subsided, especially as more serious charges surfaced, including a rape accusation from a woman who came forward with her attorney Gloria Allred, resulting in a now-concluded LAPD investigation.
Hammer, who was married at the time of several of the alleged encounters, has vehemently rejected the rape allegation and all other charges, claiming that all interactions with women were voluntary. His defense team shared text communications with the lady who accused him of rape to the media in an effort to disprove the charges. Hammer’s public reputation was seriously tarnished despite his denials.
Hammer was most recently seen in Disney’s “Death on the Nile” earlier this year, but he did not participate in any press for the film, which had concluded filming before his scandal erupted. Hammer has no other projects planned.
