Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski have reunited for the sake of their son.

The 77-year-old comedian split from his former wife in 2013 after 23 years of marriage, but the pair are said to be coming together in a bid to save their troubled 18-year-old son Chance.

According to Australia's Women's Day magazine, Linda - who spends much of her time in Morocco with her new beau Moulay Hafid Baba - is ''taking the need to be close to Chance very seriously.''

The news comes amid growing concerns surrounding Chance, after he was pictured smoking what appeared to be a bong on the balcony of Paul's home last year. The teenager also previously made headlines for smoking 'suspicious' cigarettes, and for reportedly developing an obsession with Satan.

Previously, the 58-year-old actress hit out at rumours that Chance spends all his time with Paul and never gets to see his mother.

She said: ''This is not the case at all. I am back and forth a lot and spend quite a lot of time in LA with Chase. [Chase] does however prefer his dad's house to mine due to the fact Paul has an awesome 'teen hangout room'. That's the big draw!''

Paul and Linda met in 1986 when they both starred in the hit film 'Crocodile Dundee'.

Paul left his former wife Noelene Edwards in 1990 for a relationship with Linda, and despite putting on a united front for the five children he shares with Noelene, the pair didn't end on good terms and Paul reportedly shut Noelene out of his life completely for 17 years.

And Noelene, 76, has previously joked about her divorce, saying that Linda wouldn't have as much fun with him as she did.

She said previously: ''I had him when he was young, virile and handsome. He's still got a good butt and good legs, but [Linda]'s got him in older times when all he wants to do is sit around the house and not go out. I was the one who had the best years of his life.''
