Will Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban be the next to split?


As we continue to wade through The Year That Ate Love, honestly any couple is up for grabs at this point. According to In Touch, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s union is the next one on the chopping black. Nicole and Keith have been together over ten years and every so often, magazines like to post a headline about their dissolving union. By my count, Nicole and Keith have not been “in trouble” since 2014 so now seems like the right time to break them up. That and because everyone else has already spilt. What’s the cause this time? In Touch alleges that past issues of infidelity (Keith), controlling (Nicole) and distance (both) are coming to a head. At least her Botox didn’t come between them this time.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have hit another slump in their marriage but this time, there may be no moving forward because a report alleges the singer wants to end it.

“Keith is sick and tired of Nicole constantly treating him like he’s done something wrong,” a source told In Touch. “Keith isn’t sure how their marriage can survive if she can’t trust him.”

The report said that Nicole suggested couples therapy and though Keith has “made every effort to prove” he’s changed since his days of alleged cheating and rehab, Kidman “continues to doubt him.”

“Things have escalated to the point that they’re no longer able to even have a conversation without fighting,” said the insider.

Along with the bickering, sources said they have “hardly seen each other all year” and it’s becoming a “real issue.”

“They’re both miserable and Keith isn’t sure he can go on much longer,” the source told the magazine.

Not a whole lot of specifics, there. Apparently Nicole is still fuming over Keith getting caught on his tour bus with Kelsea Ballerini. Plus, outlets like to remind everyone that Keith went to rehab soon after he and Nicole married, although he’s remained sober since. If I were to hazard a guess, I think the distance thing is probably their biggest issue. She works as much as she can and he tours so I imagine they do find themselves apart more than together. Since Nicole says they don’t text each other in favor of hearing each others voices, varying time zones could lead to long silences. This is just my speculation but I wonder how much Nicole’s close friend Naomi Watts leaned on her as she made the decision to spilt with Liev Schreiber? Like, did Nicole listen to Naomi’s reasons to leave and think, “that’s what I am feeling, too.” I don’t know, I’ve always felt Nicole and Keith found their comfort zone with each other and they just find a way to stay married within that zone.

HOWEVER – after Brad and Angelina split, Madame Tussauds’ separated their statues, putting Brad next to Morgan Freeman and Angie next to… NICOLE! Which clearly means they have inside information that says that Angelina and Nicole are together and an announcement is imminent. Or their dresses coordinated nicely – I just don’t know, anything is possible #2016AteLove

    One of those pictures you’ve chosen is their waxworks, right?

  3. Lara K says:

    Yeah, no.

    If cheating doesn’t break them up, then they clearly have some arrangement that works for the,, so why split up ?

  4. MrsBPitt says:

    Nothing would surprise me! And, the ten year mark, sounds like it’s the time Hollywood couples start to fall apart. I never got Keith and Nicole. I’m sure they love each other, and yadda, yadda, yadda….but, I never sensed any wild, passion between these two. Of course, wild passsion, isn’t always a precursor of forever love (Brad and Angie, sniff, sniff).

    • Jayna says:

      You would have to listen to all the songs he has written about her. He’s crazy in love with her. The passion between them is evident in those songs. I never get how we are supposed to determine the crazy between the sheets aspect of a relationship by red carpet demeanor, etc . Nicole is shy and reserved in public.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        Thanks, Jayna….I’ve never listened to any of his songs, so I had no idea! They do seem very reserved on red carpets…

      • Noname says:

        Yeah, he’s crazy in love with her.. I follow him on Facebook. He’s always singing to her, writing songs about her. He truly loves her.

      • Cran says:

        I’ve always liked Nicole Kidman. I’ve always believed she has a strong foundation in her family and her faith. I believe her years spent under Tom Cruise thumb affected her deeply and caused her to question herself in disturbing ways and she is still working through those issues. I also believe she will spend the rest of her life doing so. I believe the residue from that relationship negatively tainted the relationships with her adult children as well as her current marriage. While I would not be surprised if her marriage collapses under that weight I wish them the best.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Tom was weird and controlling but I think she definitely dressed better when she was with him. Her clothing choices almost always elicit the WTF? response from me.

  5. Shambles says:


    Also, tabs, PLEASE quit this “women are controlling and make men want to leave them” bull. I’m done with it.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    I hope not. I don’t have much opinion on him other than his haircut is silly, but I like Nicole, and after everything she went through with Tom Cruise, I want her to be happy.

    • K2 says:

      Yeah, I completely agree. She wasn’t prepared as Katie Holmes was, and she got so badly destroyed by the pocket narcissist and his vicious cult.

  7. LR says:

    Nooo! I love this couple together and any time they talk about each other it’s always very positive and respectful.

  8. Astrid says:

    They never really seemed like a couple to me but what do I know

  9. Pat says:

    slightly OT:
    I’ve been headed to lipstick alley by my bestie and I’m still dizzy from what I’ve been reading there re. Liv and Naomi’s break up. Is it to be trusted that site? I know we’re talking about gossip and that makes everything to take with again of salt, but really, some of those girls were seemed to be real insiders and legit…what do you think?

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      I went there two years ago and ran off for my life… they’re not insiders, it’s just people making stuff up in their minds. Another site very good for fan fiction is CDAN. The fact that every now and then they might be right it is just out of sheer chance.
      But think about this… if I was about to invent ‘Russell Crowe will get back with his wife’ and then it happens, am I an insider or just someone on the internet throwing things around and see what’s going to stick?

  10. Crumpet says:

    Why is she always leaning away from him in pics? Weird body language that I’ve not noticed before.

  11. Tig says:

    Can anyone get the ID on the black dress in the third pic- the knee length one? That is a stunning dress!
    On a serious note-hopefully it’s manufactured BS. She really seems happy with him and esp the two girls. After all that awful time with TC and the fall out from that-being written out of those two children’s lives- she deserves a happy home life.

  12. OSTONE says:

    First time I hear about Keith being caught with Kelsea Ballerini.

    • Becki says:

      Me too. Isn’t she pretty young? She is being marketed towards my kids on the Disney channel, so that’s all I’ve heard of her & saw her CD in Justice, so I thought she was just a teenager, maybe early 20s??

  13. Suzanne says:

    I love both of them…so I hope this isn’t true in the least. I think she’s classy..and he was such a soft soul on IDOL…I honestly don’t see him cheating on his beautiful wife….they’re too great a couple. Angie and Brad…that always looked “forced”…like she was flaunting him as HER’s…and he always looked smug and flaunting her as HIS. Looks like my hunches were right…there was a lot going on behind the scenes. I don’t get those vibes from Nicole and Keith.

  14. Tris says:

    Mannequin Divorces Nobody. Next.

  15. Nancy says:

    It seems marriage has a shelf life. I was separated and headed for divorce after 17 years of marriage. I was only 20 when I married. The separation was difficult on both of us and our children. We went to counseling and in the end, decided we wanted to continue on together. I’m so happy we didn’t give up. In some cases I think that’s exactly what couples do, just end it. Everyone has their own story, but I am grateful every morning I wake up next to the man I basically grew up with. My love story and I hope it lasts forever. *hopeless romantic I am…could almost burst out in a Taylor Swift song…not the breakup kind…the happy in love kind…lol*

    • Pansy says:

      Agreed. It seems like after a while you need a reminder that love and marriage are choices. Staying in love and happy in marriage are choices. BUT the hard thing is it’s not just your choice to make, it’s your spouse’s choice as well. And I’m not going to lie….cheating would be a HARD thing for me to get over. I’d try, but gosh I’d always wonder. I hope they’re destined for a long marriage, but if they’re not and it is the pat infidelity, you won’t hear any criticism from me.

      • Wren33 says:

        Some people have issues that can’t be overcome, but I do think that in the day-to-day bickering you always have a choice to be petty and to be an asshole, or to be forgiving and nice. But it can be very difficult, and one person can’t always be the bigger person.

  16. merlot says:

    I like Nicole. She always comes across so shy and sweet in interviews, although she can be do mischievous humour sometimes.

    But…good people split up all the time and it is not necessarily a good guy/bad guy situation.

  17. elle says:

    His posture troubles me… he always looks so hunched.

  18. Triple Cardinal says:

    Urban’s second fiancée was Laura Sigler. They broke up over his addictions and cheating.

    His third fiancée was Nikki Taylor. They broke up over his addictions and especially his cheating.

    Kidman was his fourth fiancée. Maybe the fourth time is the charm?

  19. JenniferJustice says:

    I’m bummed. Not because they might be splitting – well, that too, but because I didn’t know he supposedly cheater on her with Kelsea Ballerini. So, he cheated on her with a much younger woman and got caught and he’s not done it since nor is he ever going to do it again. NOT!!! Darn. I thought he was one of the good ones.

  20. holly hobby says:

    Ugh I wish she would go back to darker hair. The blonde really bugs me because it washes her out. I remember when she did an interview and said the blonde is her natural color. Ugh, says no one who ever looked at her Australia soap years where she sports curly reddish hair.

  21. Betti says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised as he’s another known cheater douche thou she doesn’t have the best rep either – it was strongly rumoured that she had an affair with Ewan McGregor and am not sure it was all mud slinging from Tiny Tom and his crazy alien friends.

  22. emilykeese says:

    nicole kidman and keith urban will split
    so will rita wilson and tom hanks.

    calling it now.

  23. Nimbolicious says:

    Dysfunctional or not, their scene seems to work for them. And I’m just wondering….when has InTouch ever spun a narrative that actually winds up being accurate? I personally can’t think of any instance where they have.

  24. LA says:

    Nooooooo!!!! I’ve been to their house a few times and they seemed so in love. I just love them. Nicole has this Undescribable, infectious energy around her that just makes you happy… (or I was just in shock that I was at Nicole kidmans house!)
    although that doesn’t mean there aren’t issues behind closed doors. Wish them the best.
