JENNIFER Lopez is set to drop Armie Hammer as a co-star in his new romantic comedy, The Sun Online may reveal.
The American actor recently made headlines for his ‘twisted’ bedroom fantasies, which were reportedly revealed in a series of NSFW posts.
And now, in light of the scandal, Armie’s next role opposite JLo in the action comedy Shotgun Wedding is in jeopardy.
A source told us, “Jennifer is very concerned about the movie now that these stories have been released.
“There were a lot of phone calls and meetings to see if they could still make the movie with Armie as the romantic lead.
“A lot of people have suggested quietly pulling him out of the project and I think Jennifer might take it,” the insider added.
“She is the producer of the film – does she want to play with him and pretend to be in love with someone who has been accused of sending these things?
“Will anyone want to see him play a romantic role after this?”
“Jennifer is horrified by the stories – I’d be surprised if he still had the part when filming begins.”
Jennifer’s rep was approached by The Sun Online.
News for the film, due to begin filming early this year, was announced in October by Deadline.com and was produced by Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions as well as Ryan Reynolds.
According to the post, the film follows, “Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (Hammer), who reunite their adorable but very stubborn families for the ultimate destination wedding as the couple start to get cold feet.
“And if that wasn’t a threat enough to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the whole party is held hostage.
Armie’s possible cinematic spinoff comes three days after his Twitter trending when a series of Instagram graphic DMs he allegedly sent to a woman were publicly disclosed.
Among the allegedly shocking posts were graphic accounts of sex acts and discussions of cannibalism, with one message saying “I am 100% a cannibal” while another spoke of “drinking blood.”
The disturbing messages are believed to have been sent between 2016 and February 2020 – when Armie was still married to Elizabeth.
They separated last July after 10 years of marriage.
Armie’s accuser claimed that she shared exchanges he sent her and other women.
A screenshot reads: “I’m a 100 percent cannibal. I want to eat you.”
Others speak of calling a woman his “slave” and of wanting to “cut off her toe.”
“You just live to obey and be my slave. What if I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so that I always have a piece of you in my possession? a text says.
“I feel like you are on one side of the slave spectrum, I am on the other side of the master spectrum and I can never imagine another slave.”
“I don’t even want it [another ‘slave]. I would never feel so strong. F ** k. Too drunk and honest. “
The message continues: “You are mine and I am yours. No matter what. And we have tested it to the extreme. Your master.
“I’ve decided when you eat, when you sleep, when you c **, when you use the bathroom.” All. Promise. F ** king promised. You can’t think of anything other than what I’m saying.
Armie has not publicly responded to the allegations. His rep did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Sun.
Jessica Ciencin Henriquez – who was seen on a date with Armie in September – claimed the disturbing texts were “real”.
Jessica tweeted: “If you still wonder if these Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are), you might be starting to wonder why we live in a culture that is willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt. rather than victims. “
Amid the leaked messages, an audio clip is circulating on Twitter claiming to be Armie talking about “risky messages” he sent someone during a “kink-based relationship.”
In the clip, the male voice says, “They were very risky DMs with someone I was involved with in some kind of kink-based relationship, if you will.
‘So a lot of bullshit has been said that most people don’t relate to either. It’s perverted, its niche, it’s fetish – so it’s bad. “
“So if that wasn’t enough, imagine this: you have sex with someone and you say something in the heat of the moment …
“… if someone walks up to you and says ‘Oh my God, I heard you say that …’ out of context, out of the heat of the moment, out of that safe place where he seems perfect to say – it’s a little cringey. “
The actor – who has two children with his ex-wife Elizabeth – made headlines in 2017 when he liked a series of tweets about BDSM and bondage.
In 2013, he revealed he was a “dominant lover” but claimed his “sexual appetites had changed” during his relationship with Elizabeth.
“Well, if you’re married to a feminist like I am, then that’s… I don’t know how much we can put in here without my parents being embarrassed, but I loved being a dominant lover,” a- he says Playboy.
“I used to like grabbing the neck and the hair and stuff. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change,” he added.
“And I mean that for the best – it’s not like I’m in pain in any way.
“So it becomes a new kind of thing that is less about ‘I wanna rule you’ that we are both having a really good time. It’s just a different style.”
