ARMIE Hammer has sold his home at a loss for $4.7million amid his “cannibal texts scandal” – after he slashed the price of the LA mansion, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The disgraced actor, who has been accused of sending disturbing messages about cannibalism, rape fantasies and having “slaves,” initially tried to sell the property for $5.8million – but cut the price tag by $800,000.

The Sun can reveal the sale officially went through on February 26 with the new owners snapping it up for just $4.7million – meaning the star lost another $300,000.
Sources also confirmed to The Sun this week Armie is still in the Cayman Islands and has been spending time with his two children again amid his bitter divorce from ex Elizabeth Chambers.
An insider said: “Nobody is a fan of him at the moment, but he seems to be doing so much better.”
Another source said although some friends have distanced themselves amid the scandal, others are still in touch with him and have been hanging out with the actor in recent weeks.

Armie and his estranged wife put their Hancock Park mansion on the market in September last year following their shock split.
Just three months after the house was listed, the property was valued at just $4.99million in December.
The 1920s English Tudor three-story home spans 6,275-square-feet and features a lavish home library with a fireplace, sauna and spa area in the master bedroom and a spacious living room with a beamed ceiling.
Additionally, the backyard includes a pool, a waterfall and a second spa.

According to a recent report on Page Six, the 34-year-old actor hired professional movers who operated “under the cover of night” with torches.
A neighbor told the publication: “Trucks and a gaggle of movers descended on the property, working well after midnight and lit only by flashlights.
“We like to keep drama to the minimum in the neighborhood, but it was already weird that the house sat on the market for months while other houses around here sold like hotcakes.”
The major price drop came shortly after shocking alleged messages were released by anonymous Instagram user House of Effie, who claimed she had an affair with him from 2016 until 2020, while he was still married.

One of his alleged messages leaked on the account read: “I am 100 percent a cannibal. I want to eat you.”
Another said: “You just live to obey and be my slave. If I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession?”
After a number of exes came forward with similar claims, Armie was dropped by his talent agency, WME, and bowed out of a number of upcoming film projects.
The actor has strenuously denied claims he is a cannibal and hit back at those coming forward, saying all of his sexual relations have been “completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.”

One ex, Courtney Vucekovich, 30, claimed he said he wanted to “break, barbecue and eat her ribs”.
She said: “He was really into saying he wants to break one of your ribs and eat it. Like barbecue it and eat it.
“In terms of the BDSM stuff, he made that pretty clear that it is something he is interested in very early on in the relationship and he referenced breaking my ribs often.”
She also told The Sun he allegedly kept mannequins in his basement at his family home to learn how to tie up women.
Paige said: “It creeped me out, honestly. It was really strange. I’d never even heard of anything like that before.
“I’m not trying to kink shame at all. But I think that dangerous men [sometimes] use this as like a smoke screen for abusing and hurting women for their own sexual pleasure.”
