Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness are not having marital problems, despite a new report that claims the actor’s wife is “giving him a hard time” about often being away for work. Jackman’s rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively that this story, which originated in the National Enquirer, is absolutely not true.

According to the supermarket tabloid, Jackman’s home life is a “mess” because Furness “bears the brunt of parenting” when he’s away filming. A so-called “source” for the magazine claims that Jackman’s wife “feels like she is getting the short shrift” from Jackman when it comes to their romance because, when he is home, they only focus on their kids. The nonsensical story also throws in the claim that Furness hired a personal trainer to “whip her into super-sexy shape” in the hopes that her husband will “sit up and take notice.” Huh?

First of all, Jackson and Furness have been married for nearly 20 years, and she works as a film producer and director. She clearly understands that being away on film locations is a part of their business. She also isn’t angry that they spend time with their children when Jackman’s home, and she certainly isn’t hiring a personal trainer “to make their marriage work” like the National Enquirer implies. Regardless, Jackman’s rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively that this story is “total BS.”
