Armie Hammer says he won’t be posting any more photos of his kids for their safety

I used to babysit for Armand Hammer’s grand-niece. I don’t know that Armie Hammer was even born when I was babysitting for her, but they were always traveling to extended family reunions. I even housesat a few times while they did. I really enjoyed that family, they had the greatest dog. For a long time it made me like Armie on principle. But I think my residual affection for his cousin (?) is wearing off Armie these days. Armie flew down to the Cayman Islands to see his kids, who have been staying with Armie’s estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, since their split six months ago. Armie responsibly quarantined himself for the required 14 days, and finally got to see his little rug rats on New Years. To celebrate his freedom to move about the island with, what I hope are COVID free family, Armie posted this to his Instagram:

I’m not sure what the safety concerns for his kids are. If there are concerns, then good for him for looking out for them. But it’s a curious note to add on the caption, considering that his kids are all over Elizabeth’s Instagram. Technically, there are no shots of the kids since 2021, but it looks like they went with Armie on New Years Eve. Is this a dig at Elizabeth for posting too much of the kids? I hope not because this is the kind of stuff he needs to work out in court. Remember that Armie is ticked at Elizabeth because she won’t uproot the kids from the Caymans to move back to LA to accommodate his construction job or whatever he’s doing now. Also remember, one of her arguments is that the Caymans have managed COVID better and therefore it’s safer than California, and she’s right. Who, exactly, is he protecting them from? Don’t get me wrong, I fully support parents who decide against posting their kids, but this sounds like a jab more than a statement. And it also makes whoever allowed their kid to be in the photo with Armie look like a jerk. His kids need protecting from Instagram, but who cares about this kid in the shot?

I think Armie is still angry because he’s not getting his way so he’s taking passive aggressive pot shots where he can, hoping it will gain him some traction. This is a bad look on him. Kaiser keeps saying this is probably going to get messier before its done and I think she’s right, Armie’s inviting trouble. Elizabeth may not be a saint in their whole thing, but she’s handled herself well since the split. Armie would be wise to start working with her and cut this crap out.

    Totally a jab at her, she posts the kids CONSTANTLY.
    Also, he’s fine posting someone else’s kids…?

  2. Silver Charm says:

    I think this is preemptive. In case people start wondering why he isn’t seeing his kids he gas an excuse.

    • TQ says:

      I was also thinking it’s preemptive, perhaps trying to argue he’s protecting the kids while she’s not. Sounds like he’s a turd.

    He’s just trying to cover up how little he sees his children & why they are absent from his social media. Elizabeth has always posted a lot with her children (even before the split) and he rarely did. The status quo didn’t change, he’s just a jerk. The construction job is bull and life in the Caymans is fairly normal for the kids. Taking them to California right now would be nuts. Elizabeth is extra as hell, but seems to be a good mother.

    • lucy2 says:

      I did see that the Caymans have it very under control and life looks pretty normal. For anyone there like her and the kids, I wouldn’t leave either. Pretty telling that he bolted back to CA rather than find a hotel or apartment there.

    • ICantAct says:

      Court, agree with your take 100%. She does need to stop over exposing every bit of their lives on IG however.

  4. Angel says:

    I kinda agree with this. No one should be posting pictures of kids on social media. Celebrities or not.

  5. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Turd bucket.

  6. KHJ says:

    Real reason being he doesn’t see them anymore lmao

  7. Yawn says:

    This the same guy that shared video of his son sucking his toes? Now you’re trying to protect them? Hahahahaha!! Too late idiot

  8. Becca says:

    My initial thought was that this is a Tom Cruise type thing. If you don’t see pictures with them you can’t tell when he doesn’t see them.

  9. Ferdinand says:

    I love him.
    That’s all I have.

    It’s a fair comment from him as IMO she uses her kids for her image as a food industry entrepreneur. However, there’s little doubt she expresses her love for them in terms of actual time, attention, etc. He apparently didn’t even bother commuting back and forth between wherever he was shooting Rebecca in the UK to Elizabeth and the kids’ temp home in the UK. If she were back in LA the kids would be schooled at home via video conferencing rather than going to school like they can in the COVID-is-under-control Cayman Islands, where she is living with or close to HIS parents / the kiddies’ paternal grandparents. This guy is a hot mess and it’s good they have at least one responsible parent, is my opinion. But yep she should respect and protect her kids’ privacy.

      He was too busy on the set of Rebecca playing tonsil hockey with Lily James to go see his wife and children!
