MAG: Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban “$175 Million Divorce Shocker!”

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates



Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban “have been struggling with their marriage lately!” reports Star. The tabloid trumpets a “$175 Million Divorce Shocker!” on its cover, and the article delves into “the tension in the couple’s strained relationship — from their busy careers that often keep them on opposite sides of the world to his apparent flirtations with other women.”

“Concerned friends whisper that this stressful period could spell the end of Keith and Nicole’s seven-year marriage,” alleges Star.

According to the magazine, Kidman is upset that Urban is extending his tour through the summer. “Nic is fuming, because she thought they were going to spend pretty much the rest of the year together, at their homes in Sydney and Nashville,” says a so-called “source” for the tabloid, going on to call Kidman “devastated.”

Star “insiders” claim “the duo were fighting constantly when Nicole left for Australia in mid-March, and their nonstop arguing has continued while they’ve been on separate continents.” The mag then insists Kidman and Urban “had a blowout fight over his on-screen flirtation with fellow [“American Idol”] judge Jennifer Lopez” earlier this year.

“It was humiliating for Nicole to see her hubby almost salivating over another woman in front of the whole country,” explains the Star insider, apparently unaware that Kidman is an actress who makes her living pretending to be in love with other men on screen. Star says that despite Urban’s “obvious pain over Nicole’s reaction to his flirtatious behavior, he doesn’t seem to be curbing it.”

The story goes on (and on) with speculation like this, with the so-called “insider” even proclaiming, “Keith and Nicole’s sex life has waned over the years. I wouldn’t be surprised if they hadn’t had sex in years!”

What about the “$175 million divorce”? At the very end of the interminable story, Star claims, “Friends worry about what might happen if [the couple] were to call it quits,” going on to mention that she supposedly has a $130 million fortune, while he’s allegedly worth $45 million.

There’s no actual evidence whatsoever of an impending split. And there IS no split coming. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the report is “laughable,” and that Kidman and Urban “couldn’t be happier.” Of course, Star has a track record of doing this kind of thing with the Oscar winner.
