Russell’s public relations team claimed that had Danielle been traveling with her husband, she would have joined him at the nudie bar.
Partying allegations when the actor was in New York and Toronto in 2005 reportedly highlighted Russell’s “high-strung” reputation. Crowe was allegedly so drunk at a London bar in 2002, he licked a woman’s face and invited her back to his hotel room.
Danielle Spencer was allegedly regarded by neighbors as a single mom. She and the children are rumored to have lived at the couple’s Rose Bay mansion alone.

When the Gladiator star did venture to Rose Bay, he was allegedly spotted primarily with the children at soccer games and not with Danielle.
