They’ve been married for nine years, but now they’re officially calling it quits. It has been reported that Russell Crowe and wife Danielle Spencer have separated after nine years of marriage. Her rep has confirmed the split.
Apparently, the separation was amicable and the couple are most concerned with protecting their two sons – Charles, who is 8, and Tennyson, who is 6.
This from news.com.au:
The children will remain with Spencer in Sydney while Crowe continues filming his biblical blockbuster, Noah, in the US, according to today’s Sydney Morning Herald.
Crowe, 48, has reportedly thrown himself into his work following the break-up.
The news is a shock as the couple were thought to have had a solid marriage.
However, the demands of Crowe’s acting career may have been a factor in the split. He has been away from Spencer and his children for much of the past year, filming Man with the Iron Fist, Les Miserables, Broken City, Man of Steel and Noah.
