One of this week's tabloids claims Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban managed to save their supposedly troubled marriage by going to couples therapy. The story is completely fabricated. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
An alleged insider tells In Touch, "Keith and Nicole have been through hell and back over the last couple of years and it's no secret they've come close to splitting." The supposed source goes on to say that the two nearly ended their marriage earlier this year, but "after a lot of therapy and imposing a new list of relationship rules, they've come out the other side."
The questionable tipster adds that in counseling, Urban came to realize "just how special [Kidman] is to him" and that "he owes everything to his wife." The "insider" further contends that therapy has "helped reawaken their faith in God," adding, "They're embracing their spirituality, which is helping them connect on a deeper level."
As for the "new rules" the couple started following, the magazine says they've agreed to romantic getaways every few months as well as "regular date nights." Only, the happy spouses have been spotted on vacations and date nights for years, so there's no indication there's anything "new" about them spending time together. Still, the so-called "source" adds, "They're back in the honeymoon phase... They feel like they have the right tools, and they're stronger than ever."
The alleged source doesn't give any real details about Kidman and Urban's supposed marital issues, except to say that the country star struggled with addiction and went to rehab after their 2006 wedding. However, he's remained sober ever since, so it's not as if this is a new development. The tabloid also insists that Kidman had been concerned "over rumors of his infidelity." But Urban has never been unfaithful and these "rumors" were started by tabloids such as In Touch.
Here's what's really happening. The tabloid has been falsely claiming for a long time that Kidman and Urban were having marriage problems, but it's become very clear that the spouses of 12 years are going strong. Earlier this month, Urban thanked Kidman in an emotional speech at the Country Music Awards while accepting the award for Entertainer of the Year. Instead of acknowledging that it's been wrong about the state of the couple's marriage, the tabloid decided to save face by claiming they "saved" their relationship in "therapy." A source close to the musician and actress confirms to Gossip Cop that the article is fabricated.
It's worth noting, In Touch has trouble keeping track of its phony narratives. Just last month, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Kidman and Urban were expecting a "miracle baby." This latest report makes no mention of the spouses having another child.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
