Russell Crowe's Ex-wife Danielle Spencer Supports Him Amid a Very Tough and Sad Week

As Russell Crowe continues to grieve his father's death, Danielle Spencer, the acclaimed actor's ex-wife, paid him a heartfelt tribute on his 57th birthday. 

The marriage between Danielle Spencer and Russell Crowe lasted nine years. Recently, Spencer shared throwback photos on Instagram of herself and Crowe in better times with their family.

In one photo, Spencer and Crowe were pictured on the bleachers of a sports stadium hugging their sons Tennyson and Charles, while another picture showed Crowe complete with his Gladiator costume.

The caption of the adorable photos included a special birthday message for Crowe, better known internationally as the Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius in the film "Gladiator." Spencer wrote:

"It has been a very tough & sad week for the Crowe family, Wishing you some happiness on your birthday today Russell @russellcrowe 💜🌹"

Meanwhile, a tribute to Crowe's late father, John Alexander, was posted by Spencer on March 30, assuring that he would be very missed. She uploaded an old photo of her sons with their grandfather.

In the caption, the Australian actress and singer wrote, "Sadly, my boys lost their grandfather yesterday. Alex (Pop) Crowe, you were much loved and will be greatly missed."

Crowe's father passed away on the domestic flight from Sydney to Coffs Harbour.

Before his father's death last month, Crowe spent the last few months by his side. In a series of heartfelt posts on social media, the actor referred to John Alexander as the "most gentle of men."

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crowe isolated with John Alexander and his mother Jocelyn for several months, at the family's country estate on Nana Glen, New South Wales. 

In an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Crowe revealed that he had invited his sons to spend lockdown with him and their grandparents, but they had chosen to stay in the city.  

Crowe's father passed away on the domestic flight from Sydney to Coffs Harbour. A passenger said that that staff and a doctor on board tried to revive the 85-year-old.

Crowe was showered with support after he announced the death of his father. The actor immediately received a flurry of good wishes from his celebrity friends and legion of fans.

Like Crowe, actor Michael Douglas also shared close ties with his late father, Kirk Douglas, who passed away in February 2020. Douglas recently honored his legendary father one year after his death.
