Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness to Divorce After 27 Years

Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness have decided to divorce after 27 years of marriage.

The pair from Australia said they had been "blessed to share almost three decades together."

"Our journey is now shifting, and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth," according to the statement.

In 1995, Jackman and Furness met on the set of the TV program Correlli.

When they met, Furness was an accomplished actress and Jackman was just out of theater school.

They married in April 1996 and subsequently adopted two children, now 23 and 18 years old.

"With gratitude, love, and kindness, we embark on the next chapter." We appreciate your consideration for our privacy while our family navigates this adjustment in all of our lives."

"This is the only statement either of us will make," the pair concludes.

"I love you Deb," he remarked on their most recent wedding anniversary in April. Our 27th wedding anniversary is today. 27 YEARS!!

"I adore you to pieces. We've built a lovely family together. And then there's life. Your enthusiasm, generosity, humour, cheekiness, bravery, and loyalty are a wonderful gift to me.

He also said that their marriage was as "natural as breathing" on their silver wedding anniversary in 2021.

The pair was seen together in July at the Wimbledon tennis championships in London, where they were seen cheering for Carlos Alcaraz against Novak Djokovic.

Since 2013, the actor has undergone at least six surgeries to eliminate skin cancer.
