Elizabeth Chambers is breaking her silence following the ongoing scandal following Armie Hammer.

The actor, who she was with for 13 years before the two announced their split in 2020, has exited two upcoming projects after several women came forward following viral social media posts of him allegedly sending messages of a disturbing nature.

He's since spoken out after a video with a scantily clad woman on his bed was leaked from his private Instagram account, while ex Paige Lorenze opened up about their BDSM, polyamorous relationship following his split from Elizabeth.

Now, Elizabeth has released a statement, and though she didn't mention her ex's name, she said: "I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal."

She wrote on Instagram: "For weeks, I've been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn't realise how much I didn't know."

The TV host said her sole focus for the time being is on that of her two children which she shares with the Call Me By Your Name actor.

"Thank you for all of the love and support, and thank you in advance for your continued kindness, respect, and consideration for our children and me as we find ways to move forward," she said.
