Here’s another Hollywood couple that bites the dust. Reports read that Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer called it quits after nine years of marriage.
It looks like more and more iconic Hollywood couples are breaking up. The recent celebrity break-ups of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradise came as a shock. A recent report reads that Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer are also calling it quits.
It’s a disturbing trend we’ve been noticing this year. More and more longtime celebrities’ couples are separating. For their fans it’s disappointing for sure, just remember how people reacted when Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke up this summer. What’s going in on in stars’ life that makes them separate after so many years of marriage?!
The Sydney Morning Herald writes that Oscar winner Russell Crowe “and his musician wife have separated, with Crowe throwing himself into work as a result of the devastating marriage break-up”. Apparently, in their case the split was brought on by Russell Crowe’s busy schedule that might have had wife Danielle Spencer looking for attention somewhere else.
Rumors about Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer’s relationship ending first started earlier this year. Back in June, Danielle Spencer was seen out on a date with her dance partner from the Australian version of “Dancing With The Stars”.
After Danielle Spencer and Damian Whitewood were photographed at The Star in Sydney, Australia, Russell Crowe met with his wife in the airport and gave cameras an unexpected PDA moment. Some voices said the PDA display was an attempt of “damage control”, but according to The Sydney Morning Herald that might not have worked.
Russell Crowe’s acting career was at its peak these past few months. On the overall, he has seven films set to premiere in 2013, so he has spent most of his time overseas, away from his wife and two children.
Whereas the report was not confirmed yet, if Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer do split, we might see that hot temper of the “Gladiator” actor again. It was certainly Danielle Spencer and the couple’s two kids that managed to calm Russell Crowe’s hot temper over the past few years.
