Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban did not save their marriage following a long period of "trust issues" and "jealous rages," despite a false tabloid report. The couple simply never went through a rough patch in the first place. Gossip Cop can correct the made-up story.
According to Life & Style, the spouses of 13 years are "in a great place right now" but that wasn't the case until very recently. "They've managed to overcome obstacles and make their marriage work," a supposed source tells the magazine. "They're even talking about renewing their vows."
The alleged insider further contends that Kidman and Urban's marriage "was at its worst" during the filming of the first season of HBO's "Big Little Lies." "Nicole was on location in California, and Keith was touring," says the questionable tipster. "In some ways, they were leading separate lives. They started having trust issues, which led to jealous rages."
The source goes on to say that neither spouse cheated, "but their minds would spiral worrying about what the other one was up to." As for how Kidman and Urban supposedly saved their marriage, the so-called "insider" claims they turned to counseling and "learned how to open up and navigate through their issues."
None of this is accurate. Here's what's really happening. Life & Style has been claiming for quite some time that Kidman and Urban were headed for a split, which has never been the case. Just last week, in fact, the two posted loving Instagram messages for each other in honor of their 13th wedding anniversary. The unreliable outlet is now trying to cover its tracks by assert they somehow managed to overcome alleged marital issues.
Just last month, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for falsely maintaining Kidman was "keeping tabs" on Urban because she didn't trust him to be alone. Last year, we called out the tabloid for inaccurately reporting Urban had "walked out" on Kidman following a string of arguments, which included "jealousy" and "control" issues.
Prior to that, Gossip Cop shot down the publication's story about Kidman and Urban having their "biggest fight ever" because the actress wanted to move back to Australia, while the country star insisted on remaining in Nashville. None of those narratives were true, and it's become quite evident that the spouses are going strong. Instead of acknowledging it got the story wrong, Life & Style is backpedaling by concocting a phony premise about the pair "saving" their marriage. It's never been in need of saving.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
