Hugh Jackman‘s divorce from his wife of 27 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, is rumored to come with a staggering multimillion-dollar price tag. According to reports, Jackman is willing to part with a large portion of his $100 million fortune in exchange for Furness’s silence about their relationship. The payout is said to be contingent upon Furness signing an ironclad nondisclosure agreement (NDA) to protect the intimate details of their marriage.
An insider revealed: “This movie is less about the financial aspect and more about retaining control. Hugh’s concern has never been money, but rather control. He’s a man with lots of secrets and doesn’t want any of them exposed.” It seems that Jackman’s primary motivation in this divorce settlement is to maintain his privacy and protect his reputation.
Despite the impending divorce, Jackman is expected to be generous in his settlement with Furness. The insider added: “Let’s just say Deb will not need to worry about getting a job. She’ll have enough money for the rest of her life – if she signs an airtight nondisclosure agreement.” Furness stands to gain millions if she agrees to Jackman’s alleged NDA.
The couple, who have been together for nearly three decades, began their journey long before Jackman became a superstar. Furness, an Australian actress and producer, was the one in the spotlight at the beginning of their relationship. Now, as they navigate their separation, it seems that Jackman is determined to protect his secrets and ensure that Furness remains silent about their time together.
Their divorce announcement was shocking
The divorce announcement came as a shock to many, as Jackman and Furness had always presented a united front. Sources close to the actor revealed that he was “totally lost” without his wife, acknowledging the emotional toll the separation has taken on him.
Sources close to Jackman have revealed that he is writing “big bombshells” in his memoir, finally being honest with himself about the divorce. Explaining his perspective will be the first step in his healing process. It remains to be seen what revelations will be revealed in the memoir, but it is clear that Jackman is ready to set the record straight and reclaim control over his narrative.
