If the old adage that there's no such thing as bad publicity, then Armie Hammer is at the top of his game.

The "Call Me By Your Name" star (who has been pegged for its sequel) has found his private life turn publicly toxic over the past two weeks after he was outed on Instagram with screenshots "that claims to show the actor speaking to women in a way that is sexually domineering and violent," wrote Glamour Magazine on January 11.

TMZ pointed out "that the posts have NOT been confirmed as authentic -- also portray Armie as domineering, demanding these women call him 'daddy' and repeatedly mentioning rape, biting and 'marking' in very raunchy sex talk."

Subsequently Hammer had a shotgun divorce from his role in "Shotgun Wedding," an upcoming rom-com with Jennifer Lopez. Variety reported that Josh Duhamel will now take the role. Hammer said he dropped out of the project to address the allegations made against him.

"I'm not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I'm grateful to them for that," Hammer said in a statement.

Subsequently videos leaked from Hammer's private Instagram account of him vaping boasting about passing a drug test while using the hallucinogenic tryptamine drug DMT. Another video of his Cayman Island's hotel room featured a woman on all fours with a noticeably red backside on the bed. In the video Hammer referred to her as "Ms. Cayman," which led to the Cayman Island police speaking to him. After the Miss Cayman Islands Universe Committee expressed their dismay with Hammer and said that the woman on the bed was not Miss Cayman Islands, Hammer apologized.

Now Hammer's exes are speaking out about Hammer.

First, Courtney Vucekovich, who dated the actor from June to October of last year. "Armie Hammer's latest ex-gal pal says their romance was like dating a wannabe Hannibal Lecter — as the Hollywood star's idea of pillow talk was fantasizing about which of her body parts he'd like to roast and devour," writes Page Six in an interview with the founder of the online "on-demand glam" app Flashd.

"He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it," she said. But she overlooked his behavior. "'F—k that was weird,' but you never think about it again," she said. "He says, 'I want to take a bite out of you.' If I had a little cut on my hand, he'd like suck it or lick it. That's about as weird as we got," she told Page Six.

She also claimed he was emotionally abusive: "He enters your life in such a big way. He's such a captivating person. He has such a presence and he's aware of that and he uses it in such a way that most women would think, 'Oh my gosh, this is amazing,' but especially young women, that's kind of the scary part — how good he is at active manipulation and making you feel like he's never felt this way about anybody," Vucekovich, 30, told Page Six.

A second woman Hammer dated described her four-month relationship as "deeply traumatic." 22-year old Instagram model Paige Lorenze spoke to the Daily Mail about it left her "emotionally and physically scarred."

It began with a first date that consisted of watching the 2002 film "Secretary," in which Maggie Gyllenhaal plays a subservient secretary to a dominant lawyer James Spader. "He wanted me to relate to her
emotional problems in the way she finds purpose in life through a dominant partner and BDSM."

She added: "There were teeth marks and bite marks all over me. He was completely obsessed with biting me. He told me 'be proud as they were just love bites. I had bad bruises all over me when we were together. I was left with marks from him using a paddle..."

The former professional skier-turned-Instagram model "provided DailyMailTV with an exclusive image of a sickening scar just millimeters away from her private parts that was left when Hammer allegedly carved his first initial 'A' into her skin during a kinky sex game."

"Paige reportedly said that Armie knew she was upset about the wound,"BuzzFeed News writes. "'He knew I was upset, but did not say sorry. The next day he even told people about what he had done. I was upset, embarrassed, and humiliated, but he insisted: 'You should be proud of it. I would not tell anyone who did not think it was awesome.'" She continued saying that she rationalized the event because "they were a couple," but she feels she was "completely manipulated," Adding, "It's humiliating as it will haunt me forever. I will have laser treatment to get rid of the scar. I want Armie to address his demons, see the pain and trauma that he has caused me and other women. This is not me kink-shaming — I want that to be clear."

She also told London's The Sun that Hammer learned how to tie women and practiced while living in his $5.8 million LA home while living with his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two young children.

"He told me that he had mannequins in his basement in his family home that Elizabeth and him were living at to practice rope tying on," Paige told The Sun.

"It creeped me out, honestly. It was really strange. I'd never even heard of anything like that before," she added. "I'm not trying to kink shame at all. But I think that dangerous men [sometimes] use this as like a smoke screen for abusing and hurting women for their own sexual pleasure."

The Daily Mail writes that: "Lorenze's story about the basement mannequins was supported by photos posted online by another alleged former lover, known on Instagram as Nastya D. Screenshots of messages purportedly sent to Nastya D by Hammer showed a mannequin wrapped in red rope with what he called a 'leash' coming out of the back."

In a statement to DailyMail.com, Hammer's lawyer said: "These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.'"
