Is Deborra-Lee Furness moving Down Under? Rumours swirl that Australian actress may leave New York after split from Hugh Jackman

Deborra-Lee Furness split from husband Hugh Jackman after 27 years of marriage last year.

And now speculation is growing that the actress, 68, could leave her current home in New York and return to Australia.

According to Woman’s Day, Deb’s friends have ‘been in her ear’ about relocating Down Under now that her marriage is over.

It’s unclear if Furness is listening to her pals, but she has been spending time in Sydney in recent weeks to promote her new film Force of Nature: The Dry 2 and to attend the Australian Open.

Jackman and Furness purchased a USD$21million New York City home before their shock split last year.

The 54-year-old X-Men actor and 68-year-old Correlli actress splashed the cash for a penthouse in New York City’s Chelsea district on August 2022.

The 440sqm apartment is located in an ultra chic building which boasts 57 units and listed with Noble Black Real Estate.

The property features a light and airy open layout with four bedrooms centred around the communal living areas.

It has floor-to-ceiling windows which stand over four meters and boasts 343sqm of outdoor space with a massive rooftop terrace.

The purchase had come just weeks after the thespian couple listed their incredible three-story condo in New York City for sale.

The former couple had lived in their swanky downtown Manhattan apartment since 2008 and they listed it in June 2022 for the whopping price of USD$38.9million

Deborra-Lee and Hugh announced their split last year, explaining at the time that they wanted ‘to pursue individual growth.’

‘We have been blessed to share almost three decades together in a wonderful, loving marriage,’ the couple said in a statement to People.

‘Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.

‘Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition.’

The pair tied the knot in 1996 after meeting on the set of Correlli in 1995. During the course of their marriage, they adopted two children: son Oscar, 23, and daughter Ava, 18.
