Controversies and Allegations
In 2021, Armie was accused of performing a laundry list of weird behaviors on multiple women. One lady alleged that Armie carved an “A” into his pelvis and asked her to have a rib removed so he could eat it. A purportedly anonymous Instagram account displayed screenshots of messages allegedly sent by Armie in which he discussed his rape and cannibalism fantasies. When he was married to Elizabeth Chambers between 2016 and 2020, he allegedly sent the messages.
Following his denial of the charges, Armie dropped out of two films and two television programs. Reportedly, his agency, WME, dropped him as a client. His publicist eventually quit as well. Multiple films for which he had already shot scenes were allegedly reshot.
