Nicole & Keith’s Substance Abuse Woes

October 26th, 2006 // 2 Comments

Unfortunately, the blissful union between Nicole Kidman and husband, Keith Urban, has been soured by a step back in the country singer’s fight against alcoholism. The Daily Mail has the details:

Nicole Kidman reportedly told Keith Urban to go to rehab or their fledgling marriage was over. Urban allegedly admitted to Kidman over the phone that he had fallen off the wagon and started drinking again. Kidman found out about Urban’s problems after flying to Europe to film ‘His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass’. And with his wife away working Keith, 39, started to hit Nashville’s bar scene again. Kidman was tipped off by friends that Keith was out drinking, and called to confront him. “Nicole called Keith and confronted him,” an insider told Life & Style magazine. “He got defensive and accused her of spying on him.” But Urban eventually admitted his drinking to Kidman, and she flew straight back to the US to be by his side. “She gave him a choice. He could enter a program or she’d leave him,” a friend of Kidman’s said.

It’s heartbreaking stories like these that make me so grateful that I don’t have a drinking problem. Except that booze is just way too damn expensive!

    Keith and Nicole are shallow, self-involved jerks. Egocentric and narcissistic. They’ve been married for what, five months? God forbid ONE of them cuts back their BUSY schedule to be together. Idiots.

    It doesn’t take a genius to realize if one spouse is in Europe filming yet another movie and appearing at public events, while the other is in the US touring or working on an album, they’re not spending ANY time together and you can’t sustain a relationship like that.

    They’re both selfish morons who are more interested in their careers than their marriage. They will be divorced faster than Renee Zellweger and Kenney Chesney.

    Absense doen’t make the heart grow fonder, absense makes the heart grow LONELY. That’s when partners look elsewhere for comfort, be it drugs, booze, or another person’s bed.

    Nicole rushed to altar to beat The Cruiser and the Kate-Droid.


    an alcoholic is gonna drink no matter what
