The stars of Wolverine, Hugh Jackman and Deborah-Lee, have decided to part ways after 27 years of marriage.
According to a joint statement, Hugh Jackman and Deborah-Lee have made the decision to separate after 27 years of marriage.
Deborah-Lee and Hugh Jackman have chosen to divorce. As per a joint statement, they have reached this decision after 27 years of matrimony.
‘We are grateful for nearly three decades of a loving, affectionate marriage as husband and wife. We have chosen to part ways for our individual growth, as our journey evolves in the present,’ as articulated by Hugh and Deborah in a statement.

Romance Amidst Former Co-Stars
In 1995, during their work on the Australian TV show “Corelli,” Hugh and Deborah fell in love. Within a year, on April 11, 1996, they exchanged vows.
It’s intriguing to note that Deborah is 13 years older than Hugh, a fact that has been a topic of conversation among fans during their marriage.
Hugh shared the story of their first encounter with people and said, ‘Deb, she was a big star. When I picked her up, Deb was in the driver’s seat. I won’t forget that soon. I’m Hugh Jackman.’ Meeting you was wonderful.’ He unbuckled her seatbelt, turned the steering wheel, reached for his sunglasses, and took them off. I distinctly remember him thinking, ‘I like this girl.’
This year, in April, the couple celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary. Hugh posted a heartfelt message for Deborah on Instagram at the time.
‘I love you very much. Together, we’ve built a beautiful family. Plus life.’ Hugh wrote this in April this year, ‘Your passion, fun, generosity, humor, playfulness, courage, and loyalty are an extraordinary gift to me.'”
