Jackman and Furness to separate after 27yrs 

Australian actor and couple Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness are set to divorce after 27 years of marriage.

The couple said they had been “blessed to share almost three decades together,” celebrity magazine People reported.

“Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth,” the statement said.

Jackman and Furness met on the set of TV show Correlli in 1995 as Furness was an established actress when they met while Jackman was fresh out of drama school.

They married in April 1996 and later adopted two children who are now 23 and 18 and said their “family has been and always will be our highest priority.”

Jackman, who is best known for playing Wolverine in the X-Men films and spin-offs, as well as roles in The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables, has posted frequently on social media about his relationship with Furness.

On their last wedding anniversary, in April, he said: “I love you Deb. Today is our 27th wedding anniversary. 27 YEARS!!

He also posted on their silver wedding anniversary in 2021, saying their marriage was as “natural as breathing”.

The couple were photographed together in July at the Wimbledon tennis championships in London, where they were seen watching Carlos Alcaraz play Novak Djokovic

In April, Jackman told fans via social media that he had been given the all-clear following tests for skin cancer.

The actor had his first skin cancer removed in 2013 and has since had at least six procedures.
