“He’s radioactive and everybody knows it,” notes a , adding that the actor’s completed but unreleased work “is getting a second look” as studios want to do damage control. 

Hammer, 34, who’s been battling his estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, 38, over custody of their young children since their split last July, “has dismissed the claims against him as bulls**t. But the fact is, he’s a pariah in Hollywood now,” continues the source. “It’s hard to see how he’s ever going to come back from this.”

The scandal has cost Hammer his reputation with people who were once close to him. Rumer Willis, who was said to have been heartbroken when her month-long relationship with Hammer ended in December, is now grateful that she didn’t get caught up in his “nightmare,” according to a separate source. 

As OK! previously reported, the 32-year-old has been telling friends that she feels lucky, according to the insider, and “feels badly for all of the victims.”

As for his estranged wife, Chambers shared her side of the story earlier this month. “Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know,” she posted on Instagram on February 1. “I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal. At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter.”


Hammer initially refused to respond to the claims — his team said that the allegations were “patently untrue,” adding that any interactions he had with his sexual partners were consensual and were “fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.”

“The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation, and communications from the individuals involved prove that,” Hammer’s attorney Andrew Brettler said while responding to the allegations.
