Russell Crowe and Wife Divorcing

Submitted by on October 15, 2012 – 7:40 pm Comments

Russell Crowe and his wife, Danielle Spencer, have decided to part ways after nine years of marriage. The two met in 1989 as co-stars on the set of The Crossing and subsequently began dating. They had a long courtship, finally deciding to marry fourteen years later, in 2003.

The former couple is keeping tight-lipped about the reason behind the split so fans and critics alike have been speculating. Rumors are already circulating that Danielle had an affair with Damian Whitewood, her partner from Australia’s Dancing with the Stars. When Russell was on location in England, filming Les Misérables, Danielle spent a lot of time with her dance partner, Damian Whitewood. The two would frequently go out together after rehearsals, keeping their fans updated with tweets.

Russell has been incredibly busy as of late with several films in the works including: The Man with the Iron Fists, Broken City, Les Misérables, Man of Steel, Noah, and Winter’s Tale. Perhaps the strain of separation between the two, individually focusing on their respective careers, just took its toll?

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, soon to be ex-wife, Danielle Spencer, could receive over $25 million in the divorce. From the time the two were married, Russell Crowe has reportedly earned $150 million dollars so she could walk away with even more.

As per their prenuptial agreement, Spencer is permitted to reside in the marital home. However she may choose to continue living where she is now, in their $10 million mansion. Charles and Tennyson, eight and six respectively, are currently staying with Danielle while Russell is working on Noah. The film will be based off the biblical character, who worked hard to protect his family from an impending flood.
