"I’m about to reveal the dark, twisted secrets of the Hammer family," says Casey Hammer in a trailer for the upcoming Discovery Plus docuseries House of Hammer. Casey is Armie's aunt and is also the granddaughter of wealthy oil tycoon Armand Hammer, who passed away in December 1990. Not only does the new series reach back into the disturbing depths of the Hammer clan, it also features alleged victims of Armie Hammer sharing their stories.

Since being accused of sexual abuse by multiple women in early 2021, Armie has laid low until he recently popped up in the Cayman Islands. Apparently, he was trying to sell timeshares, though there are conflicting stories about his presence on the island. While the series takes a look at his family's problematic past, we'd like to know where Armie Hammer is now?

Where is Armie Hammer now after allegations of abuse?

After the Cayman Islands kerfuffle, it was reported by Vanity Fair that Armie returned to the U.S. with his family in July 2022, where he's been staying at a house owned by actor Robert Downey Jr.

There are also some wild rumors that Armie has been hooking up with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne, who reportedly lives near Robert Downey, Jr. It sounds like a lot of folks are pitching in. But regarding Robert, this isn't the first time he's bailed Armie out.

After the allegations broke, Robert sent Armie to a treatment center in Ocala, Calif. called The Guest House. Apparently, it caters to high-profile people in need of recovery. Robert famously struggled with addiction for years and received similar help from fellow actor Mel Gibson. Where exactly Armie's demons came from is still a bit hazy.

What to expect from the Armie Hammer documentary, 'House of Hammer'.

The three-part series exposes the deeply rooted abusive secrets of the Hammer family and sheds more light on the allegations lodged against Armie Hammer himself.

Per Vanity Fair, his great-great grandfather, Julius Hammer, was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in 1920 after the wife of a Russian diplomat died. Evidently, Julius was performing an abortion on her when she died. More than three decades later, in 1955, Armand Hammer's son Julian (Armie's grandfather) killed a man over a gambling debt. He claimed self-defense and all charges were dropped. Is Armie Hammer is following in the unwell footsteps of those that came before him?

What is the latest with the charges against Armie Hammer?

Armie previously denied all allegations brought against him. Then, in May 2023, a stunning turn of events took place, and Armie will not face charges in the assault case.

“In this case... prosecutors conducted an extremely thorough review, but determined that at this time, there is insufficient evidence to charge Mr. Hammer with a crime,” Tiffiny Blacknell, Director of the Bureau of Communications, told CNN.

Armie soon took to social media to share his relieved reaction to the news, adding, "I would like to say a very special thank you to all of the people who have helped me get through this time. Onwards and upwards."
