After being accused of rape and violent physical abuse by a former partner earlier this year, Call Me By Your Name/Sorry to Bother You actor Armie Hammer has reportedly checked into a rehabilitation facility for "drugs, alcohol and sex issues."

The actor has departed the Caymans for the first time since being accused of sexual violence by a woman named Effie back in March, Vanity Fair reports. The actor left for an in-patient facility in Florida outside of Orlando at the end of May.

"While I am glad that Armie is finally getting the help I begged him to get for so long, this does not take away all of the immense pain and suffering he has caused me," Effie told Vanity Fair via her attorney, Gloria Allred.

Effie (whose last name has not been revealed) previously accused Hammer of raping her for "over four hours in Los Angeles," slamming her head against a wall, bruising her face, beating her feet with a crop and "other acts of violence" to which she "did not consent."

Hammer has yet to speak publicly about his recovery, though sources close to the actor told VF that Hammer is dealing with unresolved trauma and that "just because you come from an upbringing where financial resources are plentiful doesn't mean life isn't without problems."

Back in February, the LAPD confirmed that Hammer was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault. He was previously accused of cannibalism in a series of anonymous Instagram posts by an account called House fo Effie. He was later dropped by his agency WME
