Nicole Kidman is not divorcing Keith Urban because he hugged a "sexy redhead" at a concert, despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this story, which comes from the tabloids.
"Where Was Nicole? Keith Caught With Sexy Redhead," blares a headline in the new edition of Star, which writes, "Infamous for his wandering eye, country singer Keith Urban is busted with a stunning mystery woman while wife Nicole Kidman was 200 miles away." The tabloid asserts that while Kidman was in Los Angeles, Urban was "cozying up to a beautiful redhead sporting skintight jeans and a sexy sleeveless vest" at his July 26 performance at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. The two photos obtained by the gossip magazine show Urban walking with the woman and giving her a hug in a public place. Scandalous, we know.
A so-called "eyewitness" is quoted as saying, "They laughed and hugged each other tightly. It certainly seemed like there was a real connection between them. I'm sure Nicole will blow a fuse when she sees the pictures!" It's unclear why a random "eyewitness" would know how Kidman will react. This alleged tipster it just making assumptions and jumping to conclusions, such as saying, "It certainly looked as if there was something special" between Urban and the "mystery woman."
The outlet seems so desperate to paint Urban as a cad that it ridiculously tries to make hay out of him also giving a hug to his opening act, Lauren Alaina, and brings up the country superstar also spending time with his then-opening act Kelsea Ballerini at the festival two years ago. "I heard Nicole was furious then, so I can imagine how she feels with this latest incident involving that mystery woman," speculates a purported "insider" for the publication. Of course, Gossip Cop busted that Urban-Ballerini cheating story back in 2015.
Still, this supposed source goes on, "I'm sure it's very upsetting for Nicole to keep seeing these pictures and hearing claims about his behavior. There have been whispers about trouble between them for a while, and even speculation about a divorce. Given what she's had to deal with, I just don't know how much more Nicole can take!" But that's not for this alleged snitch to say. Frankly, it doesn't matter how an "eyewitness" and "insider" think Kidman should react and feel. They are merely guessing when it isn't even any of their business.
But Gossip Cop doesn't have to guess. We have actual real sources, and we know Kidman is not concerned about Urban giving someone a hug, much like she hugs her film and TV co-stars, and much like people across the world do every day without there being romantic implications. And it's rich that Star has its "insider" say there's "whispers about trouble" and "even speculation about a divorce" when it's the tabloid itself that has been fueling those wrong rumors for years.
In fact, when Kidman and Urban happily celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary in June, Gossip Cop rounded up some examples, including one from last October where the magazine wrongly speculated it was "over" for Kidman and Urban's marriage. Now here we are again nearly a year later with the publication's "insider" contending the photos of Urban "could be the last straw for Nicole." But Gossip Cop knows for a fact they won't be. "It's all B.S.," an impeccable contact close to the actress tells us exclusively. Star is simply trying to make drama where there is none.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
