On Friday, Jackman and Furness – married for 27 years – released a joint statement confirming their separation.
The couple announced they were filing for divorce after nearly three decades of marriage.

“Our family has been and always will be our highest priority,” the statement continued. “We embark on this next chapter with gratitude, love and kindness.”
They also added, “We greatly appreciate your understanding of respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives.”

As he walked down the street, he revealed that “it’s a tough time,” but refused to discuss the breakup further.
Last April, the couple had just celebrated their anniversary and Jackman posted a heartfelt tribute to his wife on Instagram.
“I love you Deb. Today is our 27th wedding anniversary. 27 years! I love you so much,” the actor wrote in his caption.
“Together we created a beautiful family. And life. Your laughter, your wit, your generosity, your humor, your insolence, your courage and your loyalty are an incredible gift to me. I love you with all my heart,” he shared in a heartfelt message.
