Armie Hammer’s blood lust was so intense that he once killed a deer, ripped out its heart out and ate it raw while it was still warm, a former girlfriend has claimed.
And the accused cannibal told her he constantly liked to find new ‘vanilla’ girls who he could subject to his twisted sexual fantasies.
Effie Angelova, 27, the first woman to accuse the Call Me By Your Name star of abuse made these claims in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, three years after she became the first woman to accuse Hammer.
She made the decision to speak – and to publish a memoir of the abuse online – because she feels, Hammer has shown no remorse.
‘I’ve been scared to speak about my trauma because I get victim-blamed and bullied and harassed by rapist supporters,’ the Bulgarian national said.
‘But I keep hearing that my abuser continues to hurt more girls.
‘He hasn’t changed. It seems he’s become more manipulative.
Effie Angelova, 27, shared a disturbing account of the ‘abuse’ she endured during her four-year relationship with Armie Hammer and the toll it continues to take on her
Angelova first came forward with the allegations in 2021, when she filed a complaint alleging that he raped her in 2017, however, prosecutors would ultimately decide against pursuing charges years later
‘Justice has not been served,’ Angelova added. ‘I want rapists to be held accountable. He is a rapist, and he should be held accountable.’
A spokesperson for Hammer declined to comment on Angelova’s claims but when announcing his office’s decision not to prosecute, LA DA George Gascon admitted, ‘due to the complexity of the relationship [between Hammer and Angelova] and inability to prove a non-consensual, forcible sexual encounter we are unable to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.’
Other women came forward after Angelova. They leveled similar allegations that the actor had subjected them to violent kinky sex that left them bruised, bleeding and traumatized and that he had professed a love of ‘cannibalism’.
Angelova’s decision to speak out comes after DailyMail.com revealed a new woman in Hammer’s life last month. Kazakh-born IT specialist Marina Gris claimed they were due to marry but have now called off their relationship.
Gris did not level accusations of abuse at the actor who first made it big playing both Winklevoss twins in The Social Network, the 2010 movie about the founding of Facebook.
Hammer and Angelova started dating in 2016 after meeting on Facebook when she was just 20. Now she has revealed in candid detail how a toxic pattern of coercive control enforced with threats emerged.

She says Hammer’s nauseating fantasies included his fixation with cannibalism, blood play, knives, breaking bones and even violent death during sex.
As their relationship continued, Angelova recalls how Hammer increasingly spoke of his fascination with blood – playing with it and even drinking it.
Hammer’s alleged fixation with cannibalism is first and foremost in Angelova’s recollections of their twisted relationship.
In dozens of texts – apparently quoted by Angelova verbatim – Hammer shared dark sexual fantasies that involved inflicting harm and even death in a bid to consume her.
She claims he told her, ‘I will kill you. That’s the only way you can die. Do you understand?’
‘Blood is just so primal,’ he allegedly said. ‘And pure. It’s the purest form of someone’s life force. And if you want to eat someone alive it’s the closest you can get.’
Another time he told her: ‘Please fix my soul. I need you to help me. I want to eat you alive. I want to bite f***ing pieces off of you. I need to devour you. That’s my skin. I would eat it if I was there.
‘I would swallow it. I’d chase you down and pounce on you so fast if you tried to walk away. You’ll need something strong to hold me back from you. I’m feeling very possessive.’
He then added: ‘I’ve cut the heart out of a living animal before and eaten it while still warm. I shot it, ran up, pulled out a knife, cut the heart out and ate it. Raw. Still warm.
‘The feeling of the muscle fiber, the taste of the iron in the blood. I couldn’t stop. I smeared blood on my face.
‘I’d eat your heart too if I wasn’t stuck without you after.’
Effie shared screenshots of messages from the actor, some too disturbing to publish, in which he expressed his dark, sadistic fantasies
He told her he wanted to ‘devour’ her and ‘eat her alive’ and underlined just how literally he intended those statements to land, by claiming to have once eaten the ‘still warm’ heart of a deer
Hammer described fantasies that involved inflicting harm and even death in a bid to consume her
Last year the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office announced it would not press charges against Hammer despite Angelova’s claim that he had raped her in 2017.
Angelova claims that when she accused Hammer of rape he replied: ‘I still have some pent up aggression to take out on your body.’
She admits that she kept going back to Hammer as he played on her emotions. She describes the reason was they shared a ‘trauma bond’.
She says he ‘love-bombed’ her with messages. He wanted her so badly that he called her the ‘golden standard’ among women, or in his words ‘The Michael Phelps of f***ing’.
‘Do you remember how many nights we stayed up all night talking?’ he wrote to her.
‘How much we shared with each other? It all meant something and it was all beautiful and no matter how poorly I handled the situation (very poorly…) I don’t think it should deminish (sic) that…
‘You deserved way better… All signs here point to my fault. And I know I said this before but I am so sorry. So, so sorry.’
He even told her of his fantasy of them both dying during sex.
‘I’ll choke you to death and as you die you will be holding a rope to a contraption that will cut my throat so as we die we feel the warmth of my blood covering us.
Two years later, she claims, Hammer reached out to her and expressed a desire to ‘make amends.’
The shocking messages appear to support her claims that Hammer was fixated with cannibalism, blood play, knives, violent death during sex and the breaking of bones
She writes that he told her, ‘I have been in years of intensive therapy, and it’s changed my life.’
But in fact, two women – Dallas-based app founder Courtney Vucekovich and professional skier-turned-Instagram model Paige Lorenze – came forward with their own accounts of ‘traumatic’ experiences with Hammer the very next year.
Lorenze claimed that the fallen star cut her with a knife and branded her.
According to Angelova, Hammer said he liked to initiate new girls into his dark fantasies.
‘I like newbies because I can totally train them,’ he supposedly said.
‘If I find a vanilla girl, I make it my job to find the kink in her and pull it out. I want to find her limits and then push and expose her to more than she thought she could handle.’
He said of one such woman: ‘We met working together. She was a vanilla until I turned her out. We got into blood play…me drinking her blood.’
Angelova says that she repeatedly refused Hammer’s invitations to join him in New York, Saudi Arabia and Canada – all places where, she alleges, he told her he intended to inflict ‘torture’ upon her.
‘I felt suicidal,’ she admits. ‘And blocked him for some time. But due to the trauma bond I went back and kept trying to heal him with spirituality which, needless to say, didn’t work.’
Angelova admits she was locked in a toxic and addictive cycle from which she struggled, and repeatedly failed, to break free.
She would cut Hammer off. He would love bomb and coerce her. She would relent only for him to make increasingly degrading demands in a bid to convert her into his ‘little slave.’
‘I wanted to find excuses for him,’ she states. ‘And I wondered whether his disturbing behavior was due to his drug use.’
But Hammer himself, she says, rejected that as too simplistic a reading and wrote to her, ‘It’s too easy to just pass it off as drugs. And feels dismissive. Don’t blame drugs…it’s much more complicated than that.’
She called him a ‘monster.’ She says she tried to leave but again and again she stayed, until the day that she didn’t.
In February 2020 something in Angelova began to break. She confronted Hammer over the alleged rape and this time she didn’t let it drop.
Prague-based Marina Gris, a Kazakh-born IT specialist is the latest woman that Hammer has been known to be with. They gt engaged last year but have since split. Gris has not made allegations of any abuse y him but

Looking back, Angelova recalls, she told him, ‘Even though you’re still in denial about your actions and want to blame others, you’ve permanently damaged me. I can only hope there aren’t too many other girls you’ve abused suffering in silence. You need to stop hurting women…
‘I will never forgive you.’
The following month an anonymous rape allegation against Hammer surfaced online. According to Angelova it was so similar to her own experience that, ‘It shattered me.’
Then, texts between Hammer and ‘another woman bullied into silence in 2018’ also emerged online.
Angelova could take no more. She found her voice and filed her complaint only to have the District Attorney decline to press charges.
But while she may not have got the ‘justice’ she sought, there is still a way in which Angelova believes she may find some peace.
‘I suffer from complex post-traumatic stress disorder every day because of what Armie has done to me.
‘For my healing, I want Armie to show genuine remorse for what he’s done to me.’
