Is Keith Urban really "furious" at Nicole Kidman for praising Lenny Kravitz? That's the suspicious claim coming from an Australian tabloid. And Gossip Cop can exclusively bust it.
According to New Idea, Urban's is in a "fury" over Kidman's "glowing declarations about her former flame and secret fiance." The gossip magazine asserts that "while promoting 'Big Little Lies,' Nicole has been waxing lyrical about Lenny — and these comments haven't gone down well with Keith." A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Keith's blood was boiling."
"To make matters worse," contends the outlet, "Lenny has since spoken out confirming that he remains close with Nicole. The fact that both of their comments have been made publicly has left Keith humiliated." Asserts the publication's supposed snitch, "It's a real slap in the face. Even though Keith knows he has nothing to worry about, just like any husband, he can get pretty jealous."
Tellingly, the tabloid doesn't name any specific comment that purportedly earned Urban's ire. Nor does the magazine provide any context for Kidman discussing Kravitz. The star worked on "Big Little Lies" with his daughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, so at times their past connection through her father came up during interviews. It's not like Kidman was randomly discussing her ex. But what's strange is New Idea peddling this narrative now.
"Big Little Lies" premiered in February 2017. The finale aired in April. Kidman is not currently promoting the series all these months later. So it's rather bizarre to suddenly claim Urban is "furious" over remarks she's made during its promotion. For example, when searching "Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz" on Google, most of the results are from February, when Kidman discussed her former engagement to the musician. Fans are supposed to believe Urban is objecting to her comments more than 10 months later?
In addition, New Idea fails to mention that Urban proved he has no problem with Kravitz when they posed together with Kidman at the 2016 CMT Awards (see photo above). A rep now exclusively tells Gossip Cop the suggestion that Kravitz is causing marital problems for the couple is "laughable." This is now the second time in recent weeks that the outlet has falsely claimed Urban was upset over Kidman and another man. Less than a month ago, the third party was Justin Theroux. Now it's Kravitz. And it's still all wrong.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
