Russell Crowe had been married to Danielle Spencer for nine years before they announced their divorce back in October. The two have two children together. Rumor’s then flew about the divorce, and a new rumor had Russell dating Billy Joel’s ex-wife, Katie Lee.
Now it’s being reported that Russell is trying to put his “family back together”.
Russell Crowe has sensationally revealed he is determined to bring his family back together and lashed out at ‘false and cruel’ reports surrounding his love life. His Twitter rant comes as estranged wife Danielle Spencer returned to social networking for the first time since the split, thanking fans for their support blaming her absence on ‘things keeping her busy’.
The New Zealand-born actor, 48, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: ‘As soon as I finish this job and can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together.’
He also hit out at recent reports he was ‘casually seeing’ TV food critic Katie Lee – ex-wife of Billy Joel.
He added: ‘These latest reports are false & cruel.’
His tweet comes as the former Dancing With The Stars contender broke her silence since the split, writing on Facebook: ‘Hi Everyone! I’m sorry i haven’t visited here for a while, things have been keeping me somewhat busy of late. I just wanted to thank you all for bearing with me and also for your messages of support, it means a lot to me.’
Recently the star has admitted his busy filming schedule meant he had hardly spent any time with his sons Charles and Tennyson, who are based in Sydney this year.
He tweeted two weeks ago: ‘Starting on another film set tomorrow. I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how f**ked up my schedule has become this year.’
When a Twitter follower, a travelling salesman, told him he shared the same problem, Russell added: ‘I sympathise. I haven’t seen mine since late September. Maybe 40 days with them for the year. Won’t happen again. All the best.’
Crowe is currently in America filming a Winters Tale alongside Hugh Jackman.
Meanwhile, Russell lashed out at The Guardian newspaper for their review of Les Miserables, which was given three out of five stars.
He tweeted on Friday: ‘@guardian Should be ashamed for sending an illiterate plonker to review Les Mis, are you sure your reviewer watched the movie?’
Does he mean here that he’s trying to win back his ex-wife Danielle, or that he just misses his kids? It’s hard to tell. I would like to think he wants to win his wife back, but who knows. How did you interpret the interview?
