After 9 years of marriage, Russell Crowe and his wife, Danielle Spencer, have decided to go their separate ways. Ehh, 9 years, that’s a pretty long run in Hollywood.
Australian paper, the Sydney Morning Herald, first announced that these two had just arrived at Splitzville, but it’s reportedly an amicable split. Apparently, Russell got too busy for them to make their marriage work anymore.
Judging from this photo taken over the weekend, it appears that Russell is taking the divorce news pretty well, either that or he’s turned into Santa Clause.
Russell’s wife will reportedly get $20 million in the divorce from Russell’s $65 million net worth thanks to an ironclad prenup. However, Danielle has some money of her own.

She’s a singer and was on Australian “Dancing With the Stars.” There were also some rumors that Danielle was cheating with her DWTS partner, but it was probably just a case of “extra dance rehearsals” a la, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
However, it’s Russell’s recent surge of new acting projects that caused their drift. Danielle felt like she was forced to stay at home and take care of their two sons, Charles, 8, and Tennyson, 6, while Russell jetted off to America to make movies.
Russell just finished working on the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel” and has about 5 other films in pre or post-production.
So yeah, maybe he was busy.
