The whispers that sneaked around the corridors of the media about the marriage of the renowned New Zealand born actor, Movie producer and singer Russell Crowe actually turned out to be true, it discarded the cloak of speculations and innuendos and donned the apparel of reality in 2012. It is painful but real; the celebrity couple actually abandoned a marriage of almost 9 years with two lovely kids stock in the middle.
As an actor, Russell gained international recognition from the 2000 historical epic movie titled Gladiator where he was cast in the role of Maximus Decimus Meridius, a general in the Roman army. Other movies he has appeared in include: The Insider (1999), A Beautiful Mind (2001), Romper Stomper (1992), Les Miserables (2012), State of Play (2009) to mention but a few. As a singer, the music legend has released several albums and in collaboration with his friend Billy Dean formed a band known as Roman Antix, which over the years metamorphosed into the famous Australian rock band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts (TOFOG). The fabulous actor is also into philanthropy, many schools have benefited from his freewill donations which are usually substantial.
After meeting on the set of the movie titled The Crossing in 1999, Russell and the popular Australian actress and musician Danielle Spencer started an erratic relationship which was mostly on and off. The nature of their relationship gave room for Russell to hook-up with Meg Ryan another actress whom he co-starred with in the movie titled Proof of Life in the year 2000, Russell and Meg’s relationship barely lasted for a year and in 2001, Russell and his estranged girlfriend Danielle came back together for good.
The celebrity couple courted for a while and on the 7th day of April 2003, just on Russell’s 39th birthday, the duo tied the nuptials at Russell’s cattle station located in Nana Glen, New Wales. Their marriage which lasted for all of nine years was blessed with two sons: Tennyson Spencer Crowe who was born on the 7th day of July 2006 and Charles Spencer Crowe who announced his entrance just before Christmas, on the 21st day of December 2003.
2012 was not a good year for the couple because they started experiencing marital difficulties which culminated in an official separation in October 2012 and ultimate divorce which was concluded in April 2018. Although the records said that their separation was an amicable one, the couple still expressed concern on the privacy of their kids whom they intend to protect from public eye as much as possible.
After his divorce was finalized, Russell who is reportedly frugal with cash and moves around in an old jeep decided to stage a divorce auction in which he intended to discard most of his unwanted items. He claimed that even his ex-wife who did not initially take him seriously on the divorce auction later donated some of her unwanted things to be sold off. The whooping sum of $3.7 million was realized from the Art of Divorce auction which took place on the 7th day of April which could have been his wedding anniversary to Danielle.
According to the media, the celebrated actor, singer and movie producer has a mystery girlfriend lurking in the corner with whom he intends to renew his love life. The source reported that Russell who doesn’t want to be a lonely man in his old age was all out to find fulfillment again after his marriage with Danielle hit the rocks. He only hopes that his new relationship will grow into something beautiful and enduring. The report went on say that although the famed actor wants to keep his relationship private, he has introduced his mystery woman to his close friends who have attested to the fact that Russell is quite besotted with her.
Another report actually went as far as announcing a wedding between Russell and his mystery woman whom they have identified as Terri Irwin, a divorced celebrity with two kids, citing that the handsome actor was now ready to go public with his purported romance after all the secrecy and before long, a new report surfaced from Woman’s Day claiming that the wedding was off. The temerity of the media in publishing false reports about him made Russell to take to his 2,2 million followers Twitter handle to debunk all the rumors and speculations about a wedding that only existed in the mind of the press. The concussion of this fairytale is that the reports were all false and there is nothing like a romantic entanglement between the celebrated artist and Terri, the only truth there is that the duo are at similar a stage of life, and have stuff like kids, big careers and searching for love in common.
