Hugh Jackman Turns to Famous Friends for Support Post-Split from Wife Deb
Hugh Jackman has been leaning on his A-list circle of friends in the wake of his shocking split from wife of 27 years, Deborra-Lee Furness. The Aussie actor was recently spotted living it up with a star-studded squad at a NFL football game, seeming to enjoy the single life.
Last month, Hugh and Deb dropped the bombshell announcement that they were divorcing after nearly three decades of marriage. While details remain scarce, sources say the once-idyllic union had simply run its course.
“They’re going through a gut-wrenching process to finalize the divorce,” an insider told Us Weekly, adding the former couple plans to evenly divide their substantial real estate assets.
But Hugh, 54, hasn’t been wallowing in heartbreak since the news broke. Over the weekend, he put on a cheerful front while hanging with his A-list inner circle at the Kansas City Chiefs game in New Jersey.
The Wolverine star was all smiles in a star-studded suite with pals Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and none other than Taylor Swift herself. Turns out Swiftie Tay Tay’s boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, was playing that day.
Hugh and Ryan, who recently teamed up for a bromantic Super Bowl commercial, appeared to be having a blast snapping selfies and joking around. Reynolds even showed his support by sporting his football club’s merchandise.
Earlier this month, the Deadpool actor also accompanied his newly single bud to an intimate NYC dinner, signaling he’s firmly in Hugh’s corner during the tough transition.
While the separation is undoubtedly painful, Hugh seems to be faring alright with a little help from his famous friends. They’ve formed a supportive squad cheering him on through the breakup blues.
Here’s hoping Hugh returns the favor if Reynolds ever finds himself flying solo again! For now, it looks like divorced life certainly has its perks for Hugh, who gets to pal around with Hollywood’s cool kids.Share it baby!
