Armie Hammer has reportedly filed for joint custody of the two children he shares with his estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers.

The actor, 34, and his TV journalist partner, 38, announced their split in May after a decade of marriage and 13 years of dating.

The exes went to the Cayman Islands at the start of lockdown with their kids Harper Grace, five, and Ford Douglas Armand, three.

Armie returned to Los Angeles in July after they announced their separation and is claiming Elizabeth has not followed him back to the US with their kids.

The star is requesting that Elizabeth return to the US to arrange a custody schedule for their children, according to legal filings obtained by The Blast.

‘As the coronavirus pandemic worsened in the United States, Elizabeth and Armie elected to stay with their children temporarily in the Cayman Islands where the pandemic appeared to be under greater control,’ the actor’s lawyers stated.

They added: ‘Armie returned to Los Angeles this past July, with a promise from Elizabeth that she and the children would follow shortly thereafter.

‘To date, however, Elizabeth and the children remain in the Cayman Islands and Armie has not seen the children in several months now.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Armie and Elizabeth for comment.

Elizabeth filed for divorce in July, seeking primary physical custody and joint legal custody of their children.

Sources claimed the journalist is staying at the Cayman Islands so their kids can have a ‘normal experience’ in school.

‘These are crazy times with COVID-19, shutting schools down in L.A. and Elizabeth just wants the kids to have a normal experience,’ an insider told People.

Harper and Ford have reportedly enrolled at the same school Armie attended when he moved to the Cayman Islands with his family aged seven for five years.

The source added: ‘The kids are able to attend school, play with their friends and lead a fairly normal life in the Cayman Islands. If they were in LA, they would be stuck in front of a computer.’

Armie announced their separation with a throwback photo of the exes on Instagram.

‘Thirteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage,’ the Call Me By Your Name actor wrote.

‘As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority.’

He added: ‘We understand this news lends itself to public dialogue, but in the interest of our children and our family, we’re asking for privacy, compassion and love during this time.’

Boy, 12, and tour guide have limbs ripped off in Egypt shark attack

An Oceanic Whitetip shark, which is thought to have attacked the group in the Red Sea (Picture: Getty Images) A 12-year-old boy lost an arm and an Egyptian tour guide a leg in a shark attack off the coast of Egypt. Two tourists, a mother and son, and their tour guide were snorkelling in the Red Sea in the resort of Sharm El-Sheikh when the attack happened, the country’s Environment Ministry said. They were rushed to hospital. An initial investigation into Sunday’s attack at Ras Mohammed National Park showed it involved a two-meter (six-foot) long Oceanic Whitetip shark, the ministry added. The boy is now in intensive care and surgery failed to save his arm, according to Ukraine’s State Agency for the Development of Tourism. An anonymous Egyptian health official said the guide had lost a leg, while the mother suffered minor injuries. Officials have closed the area of the national park where the attack took place. Shark attacks have been rare in the Red Sea coastal region of Egypt i..

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe could spend years more in jail (Picture: PA) A British-Iranian mother who has been detained in Iran since 2016 has been summoned to court to face fresh charges, according to her family. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was released to house arrest in March due to the coronavirus outbreak, was told to ‘pack a bag’ as she would be returning to prison after the hearing on Monday, her husband claims. The mother-of-one is nearing the end of a five-year sentence over allegations of plotting to overthrow the Iranian government. She has always denied the charges. The summons came on Tuesday after it emerged that a UK court hearing on a debt owed to Iran, due to start on November 3, had been postponed for six months. Her husband Richard Ratcliffe said: ‘We don’t know what will happen on Monday, we don’t know how far and how soon they will take forward their prison threat. ‘But we do know that the Revolutionary Guard are signalling something to the British governme..
