Chris Hemsworth's wife, Elsa Pataky, did not warn his co-star Tessa Thompson to back off him, despite a ridiculous tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the made-up story. There's no truth to it.
According to NW, Pataky isn't happy about her husband getting close to Thompson, his co-star in Men In Black: International and Thor: Ragnarok. Thompson has gushed about Hemsworth in interviews while promoting their new film, and the magazine speculates there's another "A Star Is Born situation" in the works, referring to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's friendship allegedly affecting his relationship with Irina Shayk.
An alleged insider tells the outlet that Pataky was so bothered by Thompson praising her husband in interviews that she flew from Australia to the New York premiere of Men In Black: International just to "put them in check." The supposed source adds, "Elsa issued Tessa with a stark reminder that Chris is spoken for."
The suspicious tipster continues, "She couldn't bear another red-carpet flirt session where everyone gets to hear how incredible Chris and Tessa's friendship is, so she turned up and basically pulled her aside and said, 'Hands off my man.'" The seemingly phony source adds, "The way they talk about one another, anyone would think Tessa was Chris's wife!"
The magazine's tale of jealousy and attempt at creating a love triangle is baseless. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the tabloid's report is complete fiction. Pataky isn't threatened by Hemsworth's friendship with his co-star. The idea the actor's wife went to his movie premiere to keep an eye on him is absurd. In reality, Pataky attended the premiere to support her husband.
Unfortunately, NW spends a lot of time alleging another woman is coming between the Thor star and his wife. Back in April, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Pataky was jealous of Hemsworth's friendship with Avengers: Endgame co-star Brie Larson and feared the actress was trying to steal him. Shortly after that, we called out the magazine for falsely claiming Pataky was furious over Hemsworth's run-in with ex-girlfriend Isabel Lucas.
It's worth noting, the gossip media has come up with so many similar narratives that Gossip Cop recently published an article featuring several wrong rumors about Hemsworth and Pataky having marriage problems over other women. Thompson is just the latest woman being targeted simply because she's spoken fondly of her co-star in interviews. Hemsworth and Thompson are just friends, and his wife doesn't believe they're anything more.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
