Hugh Jackman, the star celebrated for his role as the gritty Wolverine, is reportedly setting a stern condition for the division of his considerable fortune amid his divorce from Deborra-Lee Furness. Sources close to the actor indicate he's willing to offer Furness a substantial $100 million from his wealth, contingent upon her agreement to a strict nondisclosure agreement (NDA).
The provision of this NDA, as discussed in an exclusive by RadarOnline.com, seeks to prevent Furness from disclosing any private matters regarding their 27-year-long marriage. An insider conveyed to The National Enquirer that Jackman’s insistence on this clause is driven by a desire to maintain control rather than concerns over his financial reserves.
"Hugh's concern has always been about maintaining privacy, and his wealth comes second to the safeguarding of his personal life," the source explained.
Jackman's Secretive Stance
Amid the claims surrounding Jackman's intentions, another source highlighted the actor’s protective stance over his personal affairs, remarking, "He's a man with lots of secrets and is adamant about keeping them under wraps." The assertion that Furness won’t have future financial worries suggests the offered sum would secure her comfort indefinitely, with the condition of signing the comprehensive NDA looming large.
"Deb's financial future is set with this divorce settlement, but it comes tethered to Hugh's need for discretion," commented the insider. In the absence of a pre-existing prenuptial agreement, Jackman is poised to make a grand gesture of his estimated $100 million fortune, dependent solely on Furness's compliance with his conditions.
This development follows the couple's public announcement of their split in September and teases the potential unveiling of revelations in Jackman's expected memoir, which sources claim will include candid details about his marriage and personal growth.
The discussion around Jackman’s memoir points to a candid reckoning with personal truths, with a source noting, "Hugh’s upcoming book promises to reveal the man behind the actor, and the divorce acknowledgment will be a pivotal part of his story."
