Actor Russell Crowe separated from his wife Danielle Spencer in 2012, and their divorce is set to be finalized this spring, so he’s holding what he calls a “Divorce Auction”!
Crowe is auctioning off a bunch of possessions that he calls “three rooms full of things I’ll no longer have to care for, document, clean, tune, and insure.”
Crowe’s so-called “The Art of Divorce” auction is being hosted by Sotheby’s Australia next month.
Here are some of the strangest items being auctioned off (All prices in USD):
