A rep for Chambers told People the reason the TV personality – who is a mother to daughter Harper, seven, and son Ford, five, with the actor – had by sending messages to Effie.
“Given the extent and nature of the allegations that have been made, Elizabeth has sought to determine the veracity of these allegations,” the rep said. “She was very responsive to all parties involved. The safety and well-being of their children remain her priority.
In one of the messages Chambers allegedly sent to Effie, she encouraged her to stay “focused” on “recording stories” and “not just the internet.”
In another alleged exchange, after Chambers asked Effie if she had hired a lawyer, Effie replied that she “felt a little suicidal” and didn’t have time to argue. Chambers replied, “I really need custody of my precious children,” urging her to file a statement of her experience with Hammer with the court.

Chambers reportedly said, “I don’t want to pressure you, but your insight is much deeper than the others we have,” adding that she would keep things under wraps.
Effie said in her recent Instagram Stories post, “Just a few things to keep in mind before anyone goes on wishing rapists ‘healing’.”
Effie first took to the social media site to bring the allegations against Hammer over a 2017 incident, and eventually appeared alongside celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to lay out her allegations at a conference press release in which she said Hammer was “mentally, emotionally and sexually abusing her”.
In the interview with E!, Chambers opened up about her co-parenting deal with Hammer.
“We are fully and completely committed to our children and to being together as much as possible in a non-romantic way for our children,” she said. “Children need their mom; children need their daddy. So there’s nothing we won’t do.

She said of Hammer: “There’s the oxygen mask theory: you can’t really take care of someone until you’re taken care of. There’s a reason on the plane why they say: “Secure your own mask before helping others”.
“He has been very busy securing his own mask. My mask has been secured, [the kids’] the masks are on, so right now it’s really about focusing on them, protecting them.
Chambers said she was ready to “support this process” in an effort to help Hammer be “the best dad” and “the best person he can be.”
Chambers added that “time heals, but time alone does not heal” because “you have to work at it”.
She continued, “People are imperfect. People make horrible mistakes. People change, by the way. For me, all the time, it was about, “These are my limits. If you can respect them, then we can take the next step.” It’s with everyone in my life, but also with myself.
Chambers told the outlet that she felt like a feminist and remained “in solidarity with anyone who has been victimized in any way and hope they find healing.”
She noted, “I’m not here like, ‘My life is amazing,’ because it’s been hell for a long time.”
