The Truth About Armie Hammer And Lily James

After being spotted canoodling with the very much married Dominic West in October 2020, Downton Abbey alum Lily James is in the tabloids again, this time for reportedly being at the center of Armie Hammer's split with his wife earlier in the year. Hammer and ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers announced their divorce in July after 10 years of marriage. They share two young children with each other, daughter Harper and son Ford. 

The former couple released a joint statement on Instagram at the time, which read: "Thirteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we've decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage. As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority. We understand this news lends itself to public dialogue, but in the interest of our children and our family, we're asking for privacy, compassion and love during this time." 

Although the amicable statement was vague about the cause of their marital troubles, it now seems like Armie Hammer and his Rebecca co-star, Lily James, might have been spending a little too much time together the previous summer.

Did Armie Hammer and Lily James exchange flirtatious texts?

Per a Daily Mail report published on Oct. 24, 2020, Lily James and Armie Hammer were allegedly flirtatious on the set of their Netflix movie, Rebecca, which was filmed in the summer of 2019. 

"She was not subtle. And he was into it, no doubt about it," a source claimed. "She was touching him constantly, giving him long smoldering looks." The insider continued, "While he was filming, he chose to have weeks away in the English countryside instead of returning to see his family who were also in the UK. This is all very typical of him." After filming wrapped that August, Hammer's estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, supposedly found racy text messages between the Call Me By Your Name star and a contact named "Adeline." While "Adeline's real identity is a mystery," the outlet noted, James was reportedly "referred to as Adeline on the movie call sheets and on her trailer." The insider claimed, "Elizabeth was devastated, heartbroken."

As of this writing, Chambers, Hammer, and James have yet to publicly comment on the allegations. Meanwhile, adding to seemingly messy situation, Hammer was reportedly spotted spending time with Rumer Willis two months after the split, and James was previously seen with Marvel star Chris Evans this summer, months after calling it quits with Matt Smith. According to recent court docs, Hammer hasn't seen his children, who are in the Cayman Islands with Chambers, since the breakup announcement (via E! News). Hopefully, everything works out for the best for all involved.
