AceShowbiz - Taika Waititi might be in trouble over his PDA pictures with Rita Ora and Tessa Thompson. Days after photos of him cozying up to his rumored girlfriend and the "Creed" actress surfaced on the internet, it was reported that Marvel bosses were left unimpressed by them.
Revealing the news was Daily Telegraph. Aside from Marvel, its parent company Disney was also left upset by the snaps. An insider from "Thor: Love and Thunder" production told the outlet, "Not exactly the image they're looking to project in relation to one of their biggest franchises."
The insider further claimed that the director is known for being a "party animal". Still, the pictures, which led to open relationship rumors among the three, allegedly "crossed a line" for the company bosses.
The images in question were published by Daily Mail on May 23. Some of them saw Rita kissing Taika while he was wrapping his arm around Tessa's body following a party at his Sydney home. Another shot displayed "The Voice Australia" judge sitting nose-to-nose with the "Westworld" star as the latter rested her legs on the British singer's lap. In another picture, the filmmaker could be seen getting close to the 37-year-old American native as if he was kissing her.
It was unclear whether the three are in an open relationship. However, on the same day after the photos were taken, Tessa was spotted getting intimate with Zac Stenmark. In a video posted by Page Six, she was seen sharing passionate kisses with the Australian model on a sidewalk before chatting and laughing with each other.
The footage showed the "Avengers: Endgame" actress sporting a black leather coat, matching ripped pants and a pair of white square-toed heels, the same outfit she wore while cozying up to Rita and Taika. The 29-year-old hunk, on the other hand, rocked a gray sweatshirt underneath a black bomber jacket and colorful Bally sneakers.
