Keith Urban says he and Nicole Kidman are in “deep grief” over the sudden death of her father on Friday.

The singer was set to perform at the Washington State Fair on Saturday, but instead left for Australia to support Kidman and her family.

“I’m so very sorry that I cannot perform this weekend,” wrote Urban on Facebook. “We are in a deep state of grief at the passing of Nic’s father and are heading to Australia to be with family.”

He added, “We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for their love, prayers and support through this devastating loss.”

Dr. Antony Kidman, a renowned clinical psychologist, died at 75 on Friday of a suspected heart attack in a hotel in Singapore, where he’d traveled to see his youngest daughter Antonia and his grandchildren.
