One of America’s favorite couples may be heading for divorce.
According to an insider close to the couple, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman may soon be ending their relationship.
The couple married in 2006 and have two daughters together, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. While it sounds like they have the perfect life, the insider reveals that work pressures are starting to come between them.
“Tensions are reaching boiling point within their marriage. It’s no secret that they’re spending increasing periods apart, and Keith’s close friendship with J-Lo won’t have helped, especially as both Jen and Keith are returning to American Idol next season,” the insider revealed to the British magazine Grazia.
Along with his music career, Keith has been serving as a judge for the number one singing competition American Idol for the past few seasons. Nicole has been staying busy too, however her recent film Grace of Monaco was not well received.
“Nicole’s had a lot on her plate with the panning that Grace of Monaco got, and it won’t be helping if she no longer feels she can lean on Keith,” the insider added. “It’s fair to say communication doesn’t seem great between them, to the extent that they’re decreasingly talking face-to-face. Friends are wondering whether their eighth wedding anniversary will be their last.”
Despite what the insider says and what the couple’s friends think, Nicole recently revealed in an interview that she would give up her career if it came between her and her family. “I have never had to; I would, absolutely. I wouldn’t even think twice about it because I would hope there is something else I can do, and I would find something else to do. I think love is the core emotion, and I have certainly existed without that in my life, and it’s a very empty life,” Kidman said. “I have always said; when I won the Oscar [for The Hours], I went home and I didn’t have that in my life. That was the most intensely lonely period of my life.”
Keith also recently opened up about his relationship to Nicole and said that he feels blessed to have her in his life. She stood by him through his darkest hours with drug and alcohol addictions, and for that he says he will always be grateful to her.
“I was very, very blessed to have Nic call an intervention on me. I had a tight group of friends around me for the intervention,” Keith said. “I didn’t give a shit about anything except turning a corner in my life and doing whatever it took for that. And off I went.”
