- Elizabeth Chambers said quarantining with then-husband Armie Hammer was not easy.
- “He was the worst,” Chambers told Elle of their time together stuck in the Cayman Islands in 2020.
- Hammer eventually left Chambers and their kids there while he returned to California.
Elizabeth Chambers said her ex-husband Armie Hammer was “the worst” when they quarantined together in the Cayman Islands in 2020.
“He was the worst,” she told Elle in a profile published Tuesday. Elle reported that Chambers, who did not elaborate, believed Hammer’s behavior at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic was irritating.
Hammer has previously spoken about their difficult situation in which they were stuck in the Cayman Islands during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. They had chosen to go there after a boat trip in St. Barts instead of returning home to Los Angeles, Elle reported.
“It was a very complicated, intense situation, with big personalities all locked in a little tiny place,” Hammer, whose father and stepmother also live in the Cayman Islands, told GQ in September 2020.
He continued: “It was tough, man. I’d never dealt with anything like that before in my life, so I didn’t have the tools.”
Hammer admitted that he didn’t “handle it very well” and that he “came very close to losing my mind” because of feeling “trapped” on an island that wouldn’t allow mail or flights, upheld strict curfew laws, and closed down everything.
Chambers and Hammer officially split when Hammer chose to leave the Cayman Islands during their family quarantine, Chambers told Elle. At the time, Hammer was going back to California to help a friend restore an old motel.
“I was just like, ‘I can’t do this. Get me out of here,'” Hammer told GQ of his time in quarantine.
Since, Hammer has been accused of emotional and physical abuse, including sexual assault, over a slew of released Instagram direct messages that also suggest a cannibalism fetish.
