Russell Crowe's Divorce Auction Rakes in $2.8 Million, Sees Frenzied Bidding for 'Gladiator' Items

Piers Morgan secretly bids on two major items from Russell Crowe's 'Art of Divorce' auction -spending $14500 on a

Russell Crowe is now $3.7 million wealthier after selling off an array of personal possessions and memorabilia from his movies in his "The Art of Divorce" auction, held in Sydney, Australia.

The Jonah Lomu signed jersey was given a pre-sale estimation price of between $3,000 and $4,000 (£1,635 - £2,180). He came to worldwide attention for his role as the Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius in the 2000 historical epic film Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott, for which Crowe won an Academy Award for Best Actor.

'When I went through the list of auctions items, I realised there were two I just had to have.

According to reports, the item, which was featured in his 2005 film Cinderella Man, was one of the most popular items of the entire auction. "It was Crowe-mania", he told television broadcaster Channel Seven Sunday.

Open victory. "I've played well here in the past and I'm so happy that I'm playing well here again". Victoria Azarenko won the tournament in Miami three times in her career - in 2009, 2011, and 2016.

Museum director Jamie Bell was thrilled two special items would be in New Zealand for all to enjoy.

The famous breastplate worn by Russell in "Gladiator" sold for a whopping $125,000, while its matching wrist cuffs sold for $32,000, a wooden sword for $20,000 and a metal one for $70,000, $5,000 more than a chariot from the film.

Among the purged: the much-marveled at suede and elastic groin protector worn by Crowe in 2005's Cinderella Man, which sold for $7,000 AUD or roughly $5,400 Dollars via telephone bid, far exceeding its $500-600 AUD estimation.

From among the 226 items on offer, the toughest bidding wars were for props and costume pieces from the film Gladiator.

Aubrey's dress blues costume sold for more than three times its pre-auction expectation when it went for $115,000.

A second bat used by Martin Crowe to score 142 test runs a century against England at Lords Cricket ground in 1994 also sold for $21,000.

While six-figure sums were dropped for a handful of artworks - including $360,000 for a 1960 Charles Blackman - other items were far less orthodox.

Singer said a handful of items were passed in, namely a Grammy won by Johnny Cash and others in 1986 and a 2008 customised South Sydney Rabbitohs chopper motorcycle.

The 54-year-old devised the auction as a way to deal with the end of his nine-year marriage to Danielle - following their separation in 2012 - and to clear out "stuff".
