Turns out that the Gladiator star has been a naughty, naughty boy during the course of their marriage and his wife finally had enough!
He's made several questionable decisions over the years… like the time in 2003 when he was photographed at a strip joint and that one time he licked a woman's face at a London restaurant in 2002, amongst other incidents in 2005.
Sources are reporting that the divorce has been in the works for a while, especially considering he hasn't lived with his family — his wife and their two young children — for 18 months!
While Spencer looks after their two young children in Rose Bay, Australia, he primarily lives in Woolloomooloo when he's not making movies.
Just as we suspected, it looks like trouble in paradise may have spurred his decision to work on so many films that kept him away from home over the last few years.
