• Rumors surfaced on social media last week that Armie Hammer was working as a hotel concierge in Grand Cayman
  • The speculation was sparked by a fake flyer that depicted the actor as a concierge employed at Morritt’s Resort
  • Hammer's attorney confirmed that the actor was not working at a hotel

Armie Hammer is not working as a hotel concierge, his lawyer has confirmed.

Hammer's attorney, Andrew Brettler, responded to the rumors after additional photos of the "Call Me by Your Name" star surfaced online over the weekend that appeared to depict Hammer working as a timeshare salesman in the Cayman Islands.

Brettler told Variety that he was unaware of whether his client was working as a timeshare salesman but shut down rumors that Hammer was working at a hotel after he was hit with a series of sexual abuse allegations last year. The actor has denied the allegations.

"I don't have any additional information," the lawyer told the outlet.

Rumors that Hammer has found employment in the Caribbean first began after a flyer circulated on social media Tuesday depicting the actor as a concierge employed at Morritt’s Resort in Grand Cayman.

The flyer included a photo of the actor and was shared Wednesday by the verified Twitter account of Muna Mire, a producer on Showtime's "Desus & Mero."

Hammer's lawyer confirmed that the flyer is fake.

An anonymous hotel staffer who spoke to Variety over the phone Wednesday also said that this was simply a prank.

Hammer — who grew up regularly visiting the Caymans, and has been living there throughout the pandemic — is a guest of the hotel and not an employee. He is friends with some of the hotel staff and plays golf with them, the hotel employee told the outlet.

The employee explained that some of the staff who play golf with Hammer made the flyer and sent it to a few rooms at the resort as a prank, just to see what reactions it would get.

The employee, who said he has worked at the hotel for over 12 years, shared that he has never received this level of incoming calls and could "only dream of this sort of publicity."

In March last year, Hammer's former partner, identified only by her first name Effie, came forward and accused the actor of sexual assault in a four-hour incident that she said occurred in 2017.

Effie said she feared for her life during the alleged assault, telling reporters at a press conference at the time, "I tried to get away but he wouldn't let me. I thought that he was going to kill me."

Hammer's lawyer denied the rape allegations, stating that the encounter between the actor and Effie was "completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory."

The Los Angeles Police Department wrapped up its investigation into the allegations against Hammer in December 2021 and forwarded the case to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, TMZ reported.

Unnamed sources "with direct knowledge" told the outlet that the case wasn't strong and was unlikely to result in any charges being filed against Hammer.

Hammer lost several projects, including "Billion Dollar Spy," in the wake of the allegations.
