Armie Hammer has been pictured for the first time after completing a nearly nine-month stay at a rehabilitation facility following allegations of rape and abuse.
The embattled actor, 35, looked every inch the doting dad as he spent Christmas Eve with his children at the pool in the Cayman Islands.
Hammer fussed over his son Ford, four, as they hung out by the lounge chairs. The Social Network star was clad in floral print trunks, a white t-shirt and sandals.

Hammer was also strolling by the pool with a black cap over his dark brunette locks and a tote bag slung over his arm.
After a turbulent year, the actor looked healthy and happy as he spent the holidays with his children.
There was no sign of his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, whom he shares daughter Harper, seven, and son Ford with.
In a recent update, Hammer’s attorney revealed the actor was ‘doing great’ as he prepared to celebrate the holidays with his children following his stint in rehab.

The actor’s lawyer Andrew Brettler gave a statement to PEOPLE where he confirmed his client had left a Florida treatment facility but did not disclose when exactly he checked out.
Additionally a separate source told the publication that his holiday plans involve his children.
The Call Me By Your Name star has been off the grid since a number of sexual assault and abuse allegations came to light this past January.
It was first reported that Hammer had checked into a facility for drugs, alcohol and sex issues back in May, per Vanity Fair.

‘I can confirm that Mr. Hammer has left the treatment facility and is doing great,’ Brettler said in his statement.
An additional source told PEOPLE that he ‘will continue with outpatient treatments,’ and ‘takes it very seriously.’
‘He will be celebrating the holidays with his kids and family,’ it was added.
It was not specified outright if that includes his ex wife of 10 years who filed for divorce in July 2020.
The Sun had reported earlier this month that Hammer had checked out of treatment and was ‘looking forward to spending quality time with his children amid his divorce around Christmas and New Year.’

‘Armie is out of the treatment facility where he spent almost 9 months,’ a source said, adding that he was ‘back in the Cayman Islands’ and ‘doing really well’ which was ‘wonderful news for his family.’
It was said that he had kept in touch with his kids and new girlfriend, Lisa Perejma — a Cayman Islands based dental hygienist — via FaceTime while in treatment.
Hammer has been the subject of a rape investigation since March 2021 after his ex partner — a woman named Effie — went public with allegations of a ‘violent incident’ that occurred between them back in 2017.
The Los Angeles Police Department concluded the nine-month investigation into the claims, and sent its findings to the city’s District Attorney’s office, though sources say that ‘charges appear unlikely,’ as reported by TMZ on December 8.

DailyMail.com reached out to the LAPD, but did not hear back. A representative for Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon said that the office had not yet received the findings of the case when the Daily Mail reached out for comment.
Her Instagram account @houseofeffie had previously aggregated messages alleged to have been sent by Hammer to numerous women that contained instances of BDSM style abuse, and even cannibalism.
One message read: ‘I want to eat you…I am 100% a cannibal,’ with others showing disturbing talk of eating a woman’s ribs and cutting off their toes.
Those messages were never proven to have been sent by Hammer and no legal action was taken.
Additionally his ex Paige Lorenze spoke out about his ‘dangerous, emotionally and psychologically damaging’ actions, with her telling DailyMailTV that he carved an ‘A’ by her private parts using a knife.

Hammer responded to the allegations by saying he was ‘not responding to these bulls**t claims,’ and called the DMs and chatter a ‘vicious and spurious attack.’
His attorney Brettler maintained: ‘All interactions between Mr. Hammer and his former partners were consensual. They were fully discussed, agreed upon in advance with his partners, and mutually participatory.
‘The stories perpetuated on social media were designed to be salacious in an effort to harm Mr. Hammer, but that does not make them true.’
Despite his camp trying to quiet what they dubbed as chatter, he was dropped by his talent agency WME and his personal publicist, and was also fired from two high profile films – Shotgun Wedding and The Offer.
Chambers, the mother of his children, had released a statement that she was ‘shocked, heartbroken, and devastated,’ while speaking out in support of the victims, adding: ‘I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.’
