Russell Crowe's estranged wife is reportedly set for a payout of at least $25 million. The Gladiator
actor announced this weekend about his shock split from Danielle Peazer after nine years of marriage, and she is set for a sizeable payout due to their prenuptial agreement. According the Sydney Morning Herald
, the couple's property interests alone are worth $50 million, including a $14 million penthouse in Sydney and farmland in New South Wales. The paper estimates Russell has made $150 million in acting fees since he and Danielle first met 22 years ago, and he also has a number of other business interests in Sydney, including a share in the Rabbitohs football club, a gym and a company which supplies restaurants with beef.
Although the exact details of the couple's prenuptial agreement are unknown, it is thought Danielle would be in line for at least $15 million after they had been married for three years. It also states each of their children - Charles, eight, and Tennyson, six - would have a trust fund set up for them. Reasons for the couple's split have not been given, but it is thought to be amicable.
