Say it isn’t so! Chris Hemsworth and his wife Spanish actress Elsa Pataky are on the verge of a breakdown, claims a shock new report.
While we drooled over every idyllic family post on their respective Instagram accounts, Woman’s Day now claims all is not what it seemed in the Byron Bay hinterland they called home.
“They’ve decided they need space, and they’ve been taking a little break from each other,” says the magazine’s source.
While neither Chris or Elsa have issued any official statements to refute the claim, the magazine says Elsa’s escape to her native Spain with the couple’s children, India, four, and two-year-old twins Tristan and Sasha says a mouthful.
The story source says eyebrows were raised when she didn’t stay in Australia to spend time with Chris during downtime from filming Thor in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
“He’s [Chris] away again in November, so you might think Elsa would want to be there to spend every moment with him, not go away without him,” says the insider.
The report adds that Elsa’s absence during Chris’ recent outing at the AFL grand final game with his brother Liam and their parents Craig and Leonie fueled speculation of trouble in paradise.
The story goes on to say The Fast and the Furious actress has been leaning on her brother Cristian Prieto for support.

Sonrío porque eres mi HERMANO, me parto porque no puedes hacer nada para evitarlo!/ I smile because you are my BROTHER, I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it! @cristianprieto.filmmaker #family #moments #cafejuntos #solonosparecemospordentro #byronbay @thefarmatbyronbay
The petite blonde recently shared a sibling snap via Instagram, captioning it: “I smile because you are my BROTHER, I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it!”
Woman’s Day’s source also adds Chris’ rushed decision to settle down and marry when he was 27 could be part of the reason for the couple’s supposed “issues”.
Elsa and Chris recently spent a kids-free break away at Hamilton Island’s exclusive Qualia resort, and later flaunted their romance on Instagram.
