Is Chris Hemsworth's wife Elsa Pataky upset about him supposedly "flirting" with female fans? That the baseless claim one of the tabloids is pushing. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.
Hemsworth was recently photographed chatting with two women on the street in Byron Bay, Australia, while his wife was in Europe promoting a lingerie line. "Chris was loving it," an alleged source tells Woman's Day. "Word is he's been bored out of his mind with Elsa in Europe so having a couple of sun-kissed beauties try and hit on him was just what he needed. He knows the effect he has on women and normally will be a little less encouraging, but here he just went for it and flirted up a storm."
It should be noted, there are photos of Hemsworth chatting with two unidentified woman in Byron Bay, but he's standing several feet away from both of them and there's nothing remotely flirtatious going on. In fact, the actor appears to be helping the women put together some sort of contraption in a parking lot. It's unclear if they're even fans or women he knows. Regardless, there's nothing "flirty" about the interaction.
Still, the alleged tipster insists Pataky was "not happy" about her husband talking to the women, adding, "She gets that he has to be nice to people for his reputation, but Elsa can tell he was doing much more than that. Elsa trusts Chris - it's other women she doesn't trust and she's been forcibly shoved out of the way by women trying to get their hands on him. It drives her crazy, and as far as she's concerned, the last thing she needs is Chris encouraging them."
This phony scenario was invented because Hemsworth was photographed chatting with two women in his neighborhood. As noted above, not only was the interaction totally harmless looking, but he even appears to be helping them set up some sort of device. Gossip Cop also ran the article by a source close to the couple, who dismisses it as nonsense.
Woman's Day spends a lot of time creating fake drama between the happy spouses. Back in June, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Pataky was furious over Hemsworth's so-called "boozing." The story was fiction, as was another one the magazine published last year about Hemsworth and his wife having marriage problems simply because she was spotted without her wedding ring. The two are still very much together and there are no women, fans or otherwise, coming between them.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
