Did Keith Urban really flip out on Nicole Kidman after she kissed Alexander Skarsgard on the lips at the Emmy Awards? One of this week's new tabloids alleges the country singer got furious at his wife for smooching her co-star on live television, but Gossip Cop looked into the supposed controversy and we can exclusively set the record straight.
As Skarsgard made his way to the stage to collect an Emmy for his performance in "Big Little Lies" earlier this month, Kidman gave him a brief peck on the lips right in front of her husband. An article in the latest issue of Star now contends that the musician was mortified by his wife's public display of affection for her co-star. A supposed "source" tells the magazine, "Keith really laid into Nicole for 'making out' with Mr. Perfect in front of millions of viewers, including their daughters."
Kidman also won an Emmy for her performance on the HBO miniseries, but the outlet's dubious insider says the actress "spent what should've been her big night in tears" after Urban allegedly berated her. "Keith blew things way out of proportion - it was just a kiss," adds the seemingly phony source. Gossip Cop, however, can clear up the situation.
A source close to the couple exclusively assures us Urban wasn't upset about his wife congratulating her co-star with a friendly kiss. In fact, the country singer was clearly unfazed by the situation and happily applauded for Skarsgard as he accepted his award. It should also be noted, there are several photos of Urban passionately kissing his wife backstage directly following her Emmy win. This is simply a non-issue. Of course, this would hardly be the first time we've had to debunk nonexistent drama surrounding Kidman's real-life and onscreen husbands.
Gossip Cop previously busted Star's sister publication, the National Enquirer, for falsely claiming Urban was "heartbroken" seeing his wife kiss Skarsgard on the set of "Big Little Lies." After the series aired, we corrected the outlet for wrongly reporting Urban got jealous watching Kidman's sex scenes with the actor. This latest article is just a baseless continuation of this phony saga.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
