Armie Hammer’s marriage was sent into a downward spiral after his wife Elizabeth Chambers discovered texts from a mystery woman on his mobile, according to the Daily Mail.
The supposedly passionate messages were signed “Adeline,” the UK paper reported.
Chambers, 38, apparently found the messages in April 2019 and was “devastated,” according to the report.
At the time, Hammer, 34, was busy shooting the new Netflix movie Rebecca with Lily James — who was recently spotted canoodling with her married The Pursuit of Love co-star Dominic West.
The 31-year-old actress was referred to as “Adeline” on the Rebecca call sheets and on her trailer, sources claimed to the Mail.
The sources also claimed that James was spotted flirting with her on-screen hubby Hammer, who was married with two children.
“She was not subtle. And he was into it, no doubt about it. She was touching him constantly, giving him long, smouldering looks,” the source said.
After Chambers reportedly found the texts, she was “devastated, heartbroken,” the source said.
But she tried to repair her 10-year marriage, and she and Hammer went to couples therapy and had plans to renew their vows, according to the Mail.
The final straw was receiving a sexually explicit text from Hammer that Chambers allegedly knew wasn’t meant for her, the report said.
The couple announced their split on July 10.
“It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage,” they wrote in a statement.
Page Six exclusively revealed that Hammer, who has been living in Palm Springs, California, briefly dated app founder Courtney Vucekovich this summer.
He also was spotted on a date with Josh Lucas’ ex, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, and seen strolling with Rumer Willis.
DOMINIC WEST AND LILY JAMES
James was pictured canoodling with West, 51 – who plays her father in BBC miniseries The Pursuit of Love – during a recent two-day trip to Rome, where they shared a suite in the five-star Hotel De La Ville.
They were also seen kissing at the Leonardo da Vinci Airport on the way back to the UK, with The Sun subsequently publishing photos of them embracing while en route home.
However, as soon as the photos came to light, West, made a bizarre photo call with his wife Catherine FitzGerald.
The couple, who have four children, kissed for the cameras and handed photographers a note which read: “Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together.”
DOMINIC WEST’S WILD INTERVIEW ABOUT CHEATING
West has shared his thoughts on extramarital affairs in the past. In a 2016 interview with the Evening Standard newspaper that has now resurfaced, the actor said women should “turn a blind eye” to brief affairs.
Discussing his TV series The Affair – which he starred in from 2014 to 2019 – West said:
“I think women should be more indulgent of affairs. I really do. It’s daft to kick someone out over a fling. Isn’t it?”
“Everyone should turn a blind eye to men’s behaviour between the ages of 40 and 50. Let it all blow over.”
West played the role of Noah Solloway in the show about a married man who begins an extramarital affair with a younger woman.
There were a fair share of sex scenes in the series, which West said his wife didn’t wish to tune in for but was accepting of.
“If Catherine was in something like that I would not be happy. But she’s OK with it. She’s cool,” he said.
“She saw a bit of it on the plane once, and I saw a bit of it on the plane. Neither of us watches it. Can’t bear to — although apparently it’s quite good.”
