rcrowe120312_01_230.jpgRussell Crowe is setting the record straight after reports have surfaced of a rumored romance between him and Billy Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee.

"As soon as I finish this job & can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together," Crowe tweeted on Wednesday. "These latest reports are false & cruel."

The 48-year-old actor, who's currently estranged from wife Danielle Spencer, has been busy in New York filming A Winter's Tale with Hugh Jackman.

One of Crowe's Twitter followers shared a similar issue with the star, in which he replied, "I sympathise. I haven't seen mine since late September. Maybe 40 days with them for the year. Won't happen again. All the best."

Spencer has broken her silence since their split in October when she tweeted yesterday, "Hi Everyone! I'm sorry i haven't visited here for a while, things have been keeping me somewhat busy of late." It was reported in October that the couple had split due to alleged reports that Spencer was seeing her Dancing With the Stars Australia partner Damian Whitewood.
