Hugh Jackman has reportedly been left ‘devastated’ by the breakdown of his 27-year marriage to Deborra-Lee Furness.
A source close to the 54-year-old Australian actor said the star is “very sad’ after the couple announced they were going their separate ways. It comes after it was reported they had ‘morphed into roommates’ after COVID-19 lockdowns ‘put a strain on their relationship’, sources claimed.
A source told the media the couple grew apart and things haven’t been the same ever since.
“They are forever linked, forever together with the children they have,” the insider said.
“But after the past few years, the love they had for each other turned more into a friendship which got broken during COVID, as the lockdown didn’t help their marriage at all and really put a strain on their relationship.”
While the source said the former couple “worked on it”, they just “couldn’t get it back”.
Fans of the beloved Australian couple were left in shock after they released a statement saying they were parting ways after 27 years together and two kids.
The couple met in 1995 on the set of the TV show Correlli, and went on to have two children together via adoption.
