PICTURED: Armie Hammer reemerges for the first time since completing rehab after rape and abuse allegations… as he spends Christmas with his children in the Cayman Islands
Armie Hammer has been pictured for the first time after completing a nearly nine-month stay at a rehabilitation facility following allegations of rape and abuse.
The embattled actor, 35, was seen spending Christmas Eve with his children at the pool in the Cayman Islands.
Hammer checked into a facility for drugs, alcohol and sex issues back in May, according to Vanity Fair.
The actor has since left the treatment facility, and his attorney revealed earlier this month the actor was ‘doing great’ as he prepared to celebrate the holidays with his children.

The Call Me By Your Name star has been off the grid since a number of sexual assault and abuse allegations came to light this past January.
The actor’s lawyer Andrew Brettler gave a statement to PEOPLE where he confirmed his client had left a Florida treatment facility but did not disclose when exactly he checked out.
Additionally a separate source told the publication that his holiday plans involve his children.
‘I can confirm that Mr. Hammer has left the treatment facility and is doing great,’ Brettler said in his statement.

An additional source told PEOPLE that he ‘will continue with outpatient treatments,’ and ‘takes it very seriously.’
‘He will be celebrating the holidays with his kids and family,’ it was added.
It was not specified outright if that includes his ex wife, Elizabeth Chambers, who filed for divorce in July 2020. They share daughter Harper, seven, and son Ford, four.
The Sun had reported earlier this month that Hammer had checked out of treatment and was ‘looking forward to spending quality time with his children amid his divorce around Christmas and New Year.’

‘Armie is out of the treatment facility where he spent almost 9 months,’ a source said, adding that he was ‘back in the Cayman Islands’ and ‘doing really well’ which was ‘wonderful news for his family.’
It was said that he had kept in touch with his kids and new girlfriend, Lisa Perejma — a Cayman Islands based dental hygienist — via FaceTime while in treatment.
Hammer has been the subject of a rape investigation since March 2021 after his ex partner — a woman named Effie — went public with allegations of a ‘violent incident’ that occurred between them back in 2017.
The Los Angeles Police Department concluded the nine-month investigation into the claims, and sent its findings to the city’s District Attorney’s office, though sources say that ‘charges appear unlikely,’ as reported by TMZ on December 8.

DailyMail.com reached out to the LAPD, but did not hear back. A representative for Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon said that the office had not yet received the findings of the case when the Daily Mail reached out for comment.
Her Instagram account @houseofeffie had previously aggregated messages alleged to have been sent by Hammer to numerous women that contained instances of BDSM style abuse, and even cannibalism.
One message read: ‘I want to eat you…I am 100% a cannibal,’ with others showing disturbing talk of eating a woman’s ribs and cutting off their toes.
Those messages were never proven to have been sent by Hammer and no legal action was taken.
Additionally his ex Paige Lorenze spoke out about his ‘dangerous, emotionally and psychologically damaging’ actions, with her telling DailyMailTV that he carved an ‘A’ by her private parts using a knife.

Hammer responded to the allegations by saying he was ‘not responding to these bulls**t claims,’ and called the DMs and chatter a ‘vicious and spurious attack.’
His attorney Brettler maintained: ‘All interactions between Mr. Hammer and his former partners were consensual. They were fully discussed, agreed upon in advance with his partners, and mutually participatory.
‘The stories perpetuated on social media were designed to be salacious in an effort to harm Mr. Hammer, but that does not make them true.’
Despite his camp trying to quiet what they dubbed as chatter, he was dropped by his talent agency WME and his personal publicist, and was also fired from two high profile films – Shotgun Wedding and The Offer.
The new trailer for the upcoming film Death On The Nile, which stars Hammer, sparked outrage after the sneak peek was released last week.
Viewers ruthlessly mocked the sneak peek which appeared to have gone through great lengths in the editing suite to minimize Hammer’s role in the film.
Chambers, the mother of his children, had released a statement that she was ‘shocked, heartbroken, and devastated,’ while speaking out in support of the victims, adding: ‘I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.’
