Armie Hammer has been consistently shrouded in controversy in the last few years. The serious allegations against Hammer have left him with no job prospects in Hollywood. Now it appears, Hammer has reportedly been “cut off” from his family.

A source told People that Hammer’s, “dad won’t help him anymore and he’s been cut off, so he got to work,” The actor is reported to be working in the Cayman Islands as a timeshare salesman. It appears that years of ostracization have pushed Armie Hammer to the brink. 

While the well may have run dry for Armie following the “cannibal” scandal that landed him in rehab, the Hammer family continues to live high on the hog thanks to great-grandad Armand establishing himself as a billionaire oil tycoon in the 1950s with Occidental Petroleum, running the company from 1957 until his death in 1990.

According to 1996’s “Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer” by Jay Epstein, the mogul was involved in number of scandals himself, ranging from money laundering to Soviet espionage. Bypassing his own son Julian, the business was ultimately passed down to Armie’s father, Michael, who continues to run the Hammer International Foundation, the Armand Hammer Foundation and other organizations under the family name.

Armie’s attorney Andrew Brettler told Page Six on Friday following reports of his client working in the Cayman Islands that he could not, “confirm or deny the report because Armie hasn’t addressed it. I just think it’s s–tty that, if he is selling timeshares, the media is shaming him for having a ‘normal job.’” We will have to wait to find out Armie’s legacy.

As we previously reported, it was Robert Downey Jr who paid for Hammer’s six months in rehab as well. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
