Russell Crowe is not pursuing Nicole Kidman because her marriage to Keith Urban is allegedly “on the rocks,” despite a completely bogus new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story.

An article in the latest issue of the National Enquirer claims the actress has been having marriage problems after her husband supposedly got “caught groping a groupie” backstage at one of his concerts last month. A so-called “source” then tells the magazine that Crowe has “held a torch for Nic for years” and sees her alleged marital strife as “his chance to sink his hooks into her.”

Crowe and Kidman will soon be co-starring the upcoming movie, Boy Erased, so the outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim the actor “plans to shower Nicole with gifts and compliments” during the shoot. “Russell’s hitting the gym hard so he’ll be in tip-top shape when he escorts Nicole on the red carpet for their movie premiere next year,” adds the seemingly phony source.

Of course, the two Australian stars have been close friends for years, but their relationship has never been romantic, and Crowe’s not looking to change that. A rep for the actor confirms to Gossip Cop that he has no intention of hitting on his married pal while filming their movie. Additionally, the actress isn’t having any marriage problems in the first place.

Last week, Gossip Cop called out the Enquirer’s sister publication, Star, for publishing a bogus cover story alleging Kidman and Urban had separated after he was caught hugging a “sexy redhead” at a concert. But the phony report was entirely sensationalized and the spouses are still happily married. We also previously busted the Enquirer for falsely claiming Kidman wrote about Crowe in her “secret sex journals.” The untrustworthy tabloid’s latest article is more nonsense.
