Nicole Kidman ‘disappointed’ over husband Keith Urban’s ‘heroin’ post

Must read

Nicole Kidman is not impressed with her husband Keith Urban‘s latest stunt.

Last week, the 56-year-old country music star performed an acoustic cover of Ariana Grande‘s hit single We Can’t Be Friends at an intimate gig, posting a video of the show to his social media and captioned his post, ‘this song is audible heroin.’

The Australian rocker doubled down on the line in an interview with People where he equated the track to the illicit drug again.

‘I don’t know what is going on with that song, but I cannot stop playing it. It’s like audible heroin. Literally, I have to have another hit,’ he said.

‘I play that thing over and over and over.’

The bizarre connection raised eyebrows not only of fans, but his Hollywood actress wife, also 56, who has supported and stood by him during his drug and alcohol addiction battles in the past.

‘Nicole would never ask him to take down a post but she was disappointed,’ an insider told Woman’s Day magazine.

‘It brought back a very dark time for then when they almost split, but worse than that is she doesn’t want her kids to start thinking it’s cool or OK or something you can easily “fix”.’

The insider added that the couple – who share daughters Sunday, 15, and Faith, 13 – ‘went through hell because of Keith’s addictions’.

Ariana, however, was flattered by Keith’s gushing post and performance, writing on Instagram, ‘this is so beautiful’.

Urban publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction, and entered rehab on several occasions, last checking himself into the Betty Ford Center in October 2006 just months after marrying Nicole.

Keith once recalled the moment his wife Nicole staged an intervention for his addiction issues, in an extract from the book Keith Urban by Jeff Apter.

Keith told Rolling Stone magazine back in 2016 that he would have understood if Nicole chose to leave him after his 2006 rehab stint as the couple had only married that year.

‘I was very, very blessed to have Nic call an intervention on me,’ Keith said, adding that his reckless behaviour ’caused the implosion of my fresh marriage’.

He also reflected on the intervention with Oprah Winfrey, admitting to the famed talk show host that he ‘went off the rails’ and ‘needed help and a new direction’ in his life.

Nicole, who was working in Rome at the time of his bender, flew back to the States and rounded up his friends to stage an intervention.

‘The love in that room in that moment was just right,’ Keith told Oprah. ‘To see love in action in that way… I’d never experienced anything like that before.’

Keith has been open about his past struggles with alcohol addiction, and revealed at the South By Southwest conference in Texas in 2018 that he wished he’d got sober earlier in his life.

‘I wish I’d gotten sober many years earlier than I did, but it is what it is,’ he said.

‘I knew I wasn’t at my full potential, and that’s what was starting to get to me. I was enslaved… I was living a very, very small life.’

Keith also admitted he ‘sucked at relationships’ prior to meeting Nicole, and that his song lyrics about love were far from his reality.

‘I would write these songs about love and relationships; I remember writing Somebody Like You and playing it for my girlfriend at the time and she just looked at me and said, “You’re a f**king hypocrite,” and I couldn’t argue that,’ he said.

Keith and Nicole met in 2005 and tied the knot a year later. They are parents to daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.
