Liam Hemsworth’s sister-in-law, Elsa Pataky, has stirred controversy by suggesting the “Hunger Games” actor “deserves much better” than ex-wife Miley Cyrus.
In sensational comments, the wife of Liam’s brother Chris Hemsworth says the well-documented divorce left the younger Hemsworth needing time to recover.
“My brother-in-law, well… after a relationship that you’ve dedicated ten years to, he’s a little bit down, but he’s coping well, he’s a strong boy and he deserves the best,” she said, as reported by Hola! magazine.
The Spanish model and movie actress was a close friend to Liam’s ex-wife Miley Cyrus. Both women would frequently spend time together in Byron Bay, the Australian coastal town where the Hemsworth’s call home.
Cyrus and Pataky would regularly hit their Instagram pages with images of girl’s nights out. So close was their relationship that they even got ink together with both receiving matching tattoos. 42-year-old Pataky and 26-year-old Cyrus may not be so friendly after these comments!
During a press conference in Madrid this week, Pataky spoke publicly on the divorce for the first time. She also discussed how Liam turned to her husband Chris for support during the breakup:
“You always find support in your family, and he’s joined at the hip with [Chris], who has been there to give all the strength he needed.”
Ex-wife Miley Cyrus Moves On
Since the split, both parties have moved on. Hemsworth is now thought to be dating 22-year-old actress Maddison Brown. As for his ex-wife Miley Cyrus, she has been linked to a string of romances following her divorce.
