Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban buy LA mansion near Tom Cruise


Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban just bought a mansion in LA’s Brentwood neighborhood that US Weekly describes as “just down the road from her ex Tom Cruise.” Does this mean that Kidman wants her adopted children with Cruise, Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13, to be a part of their upcoming sibling’s life? Kidman is said to be due to give birth in July, although it’s hard to tell she’s that far along considering how thin she is and the loose outfits she wears.

The couple bought a home just down the road from her ex Tom Cruise in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Price tag: $7 million.

The five-bedroom digs, located at the end of a cul-de-sac, features rolling lawns, koi ponds and city views, as well as 5,600 square feet.

Kidman last lived in the neighborhood with ex Cruise, but sold that home four years ago for $10.5 million after her divorce was finalized.

[From US Weekly]

There was a story that came out in November that Nicole Kidman said that Connor and Isabella didn’t call her “mom,” and Katie Holmes gave an interview a few weeks later saying that they did call her “mom,” so that sounded as if Kidman had been shut out entirely. It wasn’t exactly the case, though, Kidman was misquoted. She said that “They don’t call me mummy. [They call me] Mum. Or sometimes Nicole.”

Even though Kidman’s comment was misquoted, it’s not like she’s been able to see much of her children with her ex and it seems like this move is a deliberate effort to be closer to them – if they’re even home. There’s little doubt that they spend most of their time being taught the psuedo-scientific belief system of a failed science fiction writer in lieu of a real education. They could be away at some co$ “school” if they’re not being taught at home by Tom’s sister.

Here’s Tom Cruise’s compound. It’s worth around $30 million, is 9,858 square feet and has seven bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms. Thanks to Splash News.

    As big as Tom´s house is, I´d hate to be stuck in there with him.

  2. xanax says:

    No kidding, Francesca. At least there’ll be alot of places Katie can hide from Tom. Actually no. He probably has his minions follow her everywhere she goes.

  3. xiaoecho says:

    Keith always looks insignificant next to Nic

    She looks radiant in that photo – he looks unwashed

  4. minx says:

    Naomi Watts also lives in Brentwood and it was reported that Nicole made an offer on a house next to Naomi’s but it was not for sale. Maybe she wants to be close to her BFF, especially now that they both have babies.

  5. Patty says:

    I read somewhere that the kids actually live with their aunt, Tom’s sister, in LA.

  6. celebitchy says:

    Patty I thought Tom’s sister lived with him and that she’s tutoring the kids.

    I hate to point out that you have not yet been invited unless of course I missed something.

    I know Keith is a great guy but he seems like he has a very low self esteem.

    Katie,Tom and their kids live with Tom, his mom, his sister and her kids. Some times they live at the scientology centre in LA. Tom has a penthouse there.

    Tom believes his beliefs are right so it should not be a crime to raise his kids with those beliefs. They seem well adjusted.

    Lola take your niacin and chill.

  9. Bodhi says:

    :lol: @ CB!

    Keith seems to have perfectly normal self-esteem, its TinyTom who seems off. But of course that just my untrained in psychology opinion. Not that any porfessional psychological opinion would matter to $cientologists

    HAHA CB!

    All I could think of looking at the aerial photo of that house was, “There are only 7 bedrooms in that huge house?” I knew someone who had a house much smaller and I think it had at least twice as many bedrooms. Obviously I understand that the rooms are probably huge, but really, that seems ridiculous. And the square footage seems weird too, although I am horrible at estimating that type of thing.

  11. headache says:

    OMG CB!!! You reminded me of my child’s school newsletter. It listed a bunch of kids who won some special whatthewho and one of the kids’ name was Niacin. Seriously. Niacin.

    ARRRGGGHHHH!!!!

  12. snappyfish says:

    I think it is wonderful that she wants to be closer to her children. They apparently need a more stable (ie sane) influence. The fact that her BF lives in the area gives her more support with the upcoming addition.

    Tom Cruise….to say he is crazy is nothing new. He is entitled to his beliefs. Let us hope that as they get older, they question the values of their father’s ‘religion’ like most adolescents do..

    That is if they can ever recover from the brainwashing.

    Congratulations to Nicole, I do think she is lovely, and after all she went through with Tom, she deserves some happiness.

    I think Keith has great self esteem..he couldn’t get up on stage and absolutely rock the house (and he does) if he had low self esteem.

  14. hey, lolaaaa!!! says:

    scientology sucks. scientology is for dumb twats. scientology sucks peoples money away because it is a greedy cult.

  15. hey, lolaaaa!!! says:

    typo*: people’s money
    unlike uneducated scientologists, i went to normal school and learned how to spell…)

  16. Breederina says:

    Nicole looks great. I wish her all the best with the new baby and with negotiating the tricky waters around her other two.
    Also, Keith is totally doable.
    Katie has said she and Tom sleep in different wings
    of the house because of his snoring,( yea, right).
    Now seeing the house it’s more apparent than ever that those two are room mates at best.

  17. Sasha says:

    Another allegedly educated intelligent Hollywood couple succumbing to Scientology. Time to start burning things, people.

  18. Ur A Loser says:

    :) Bravo CB!

  19. frewt says:

    ^^I second that^^

    There was a candid papparazzi pic on the cover of an Australian women’s mag last week showing nic lifting her shirt and exposing bare belly (in profile). Definitely preggers but still not huge.
