News broke this weekend that Russell Crowe and wife Danielle Spencer were seeking a divorce, but the two have kept quiet about the split. Now, Spencer’s father, Don, has confirmed the news to WHO magazine.
“I love them both and am naturally sad as any father would be in this situation,” he said.
Danielle’s “Dancing with the Stars” dance partner, Damian Whitewood, has also weighed in on Twitter.
“Wow! Sad and crazy news day full of rumours I didn’t ask for!” Whitewood wrote. The press has tried to romantically link Damian and Danielle since their partnership on Australia’s “DWTS.”
Crowe is currently in the US filming the biblical epic "Noah," while Spencer remains in Sydney with their two sons, Charles, 8, and Tennyson, 6. The Daily Mail reports that the couple has been living apart for the past year, even while both are in Sydney.
The celebrity couple first met 22 years ago on the set of "The Crossing" and were married in April of 2003.
