Jackman and Furness announced their split in mid-September.

"Ryan has been there every step of the way with Hugh as he goes through his divorce from Deborra-Lee Furness," a close pal told the National Enquirer.

Indeed, Jackman has been spotted out and about with Reynolds since the shocking news of his divorce broke. Jackman was seen tagging along with the Deadpool star and his wife Blake Lively, as part of the star-studded entourage that accompanied Taylor Swift to a Kansas City Chiefs game shortly after the 55-year-old announced his divorce in late September.

First things first, Jackman was said to be overhauling his look as he focused on reinventing himself as a newly single man.

Insiders said The Greatest Showman star threw his typically frugal nature to the wayside and began to self-indulge for the first time in years. On top of treating himself, Jackman was also hitting the gym hard.

"He's going over the top with his workouts and buying state-of-the-art equipment," a source told the National Enquirer. "He's replacing his old wardrobe with hip designer duds and his metrosexual guy friends are turning him on to a stylist to help him with manscaping."

As for his divorce, the exes are still working to finalize the divorce settlement.
