December 13th, 2012 12:13pm EST

Russell Crowe Russell Crowe is no stranger to the gossip mill, yet the latest round of reports that claim he's hooking up with Billy Joel's ex-wife seem to have struck a sore spot.

Despite claims that the actor is now dating Katie Lee, who divorced the 63-year-old singer in 2009, it appears Russell Crowe is hell-bent on wrapping up his work abroad and heading home to reunite his family.

The father of 6-year-old son Tennyson and son Charles, who will turn 9 on Dec. 21, tweeted his frustrations with his work schedule and the dating gossip on Wednesday.

"As soon as I finish this job & can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together," wrote the Les Miserables actor, who is currently filming A Winter's Tale in New York. "These latest reports are false & cruel."

The Australian actor is also quoted as venting earlier, "Starting on another film set tomorrow. I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how fkd up my schedule has become this year."

Russell Crowe's vow to reunite his family seems a change of heart for the the 48-year-old, who announced a separation from wife Danielle Spencer in October after nine years of marriage.

Here's hoping she's not a follower of the New York Post, which claims the actor and Katie Lee were seen snuggled up by a cozy fireplace in a New York City hotel in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

"They seemed to be in an intense, flirtatious conversation," a source told the publication. "They looked really into each other. Katie was still at the hotel Sunday afternoon."
