When Nicole Kidman lost her father a year ago, husband Keith Urban was standing rock solid by her side to comfort her.
However, that was sadly not the case when Keith lost his father last month. Nicole was noticeably absent from her father-in-law’s funeral in Caloundra, Queensland.
Is the couple heading for a splitsvilla then?
The answer is No.
US magazine Closer reported on Saturday that the 48-year-old actress couldn’t make the trip home due to work on a low budget indie film and Keith is quite “forgiving” about her absence.
According to the magazine, a source close to Keith said that the country crooner “would have liked to have had his wife by his side” but “he is very forgiving” about her absence.
Nicole is currently filming How to Talk to Girls at Parties in London, and in her absence the production would have been “severely impacted”.
Mail Online reports that the production of the independent movie would have shut down if Nicole had taken any time off thereby severely impacting the film’s small budget and halting the entire project.
Closer reports the source saying, “She is committed to her work. Keith loves that about her.”
Keith, 48, was visibly sombre and upset at his father, Robert Urban’s funeral who lost his battle with cancer. He died aged 73.
Mail Online reports that at the funeral, Keith paid a sweet tribute to his father by driving his dad’s beloved Lincoln Continental to the funeral while another guest arrived on a Harley Davidson. Robert had a passion for motorcycles.
Keith released a statement to US Weekly revealing his father had died. He thanked his fans for their “support”, and said that his father, who was affectionately called Bob, was “finally at peace.”
The couple however, were spotted together on Christmas Eve walking hand-in-hand through a shopping mall in California. It was the first time they were spotted together after the funeral.
Nicole who was earlier married to Tom Cruise married Keith in 2006 and have two daughters- Sunday Rose, seven, and Faith, four.
