Take Nicole’s relationship with badboy yelping cowboy Keith Urban. Reports today are saying that Nicole and Keith are splitting up because he hasn’t stopped doing all kinds of crazy wild bad cowboy stuff. Which would be OK, were it not for the fact that other reports are saying that Nicole is very happy with Urban, and they’ll actually be getting married in the next few weeks.
Confused? You betcha.
The relationship between Nicole Kidman (DVDs) and Keith Urban was/is probably Australia’s best romance since Alf Stewart and Ailsa Hogan first gazed at each other over a shelf display or sardine tins, and they have been under intense scrutiny and speculation since they got together. Nicole and Keith were meant to have got engaged to each other in November, but now people think that they actually probably didn’t.
And now their ‘never fully confirmed and still quite confusing’ relationship has taken another twist. Earlier today, reports came flooding in that Nicole Kidman had dumped Keith Urban for being a bit out of control. Who was the endlessly reliable character witness that networks like ABC turned to for confirmation? None other than Laura Sigler, an ex-girlfriend of Keith’s, who was unsurprisingly somewhat uncomplimentary about Urban:
"I knew it wouldn’t last. Keith is charming and very charismatic, but
not reliable. He had numerous flings while we were together. He is very
attractive and when he talks the talk, he can be very seductive. But
I’m not sure Keith will ever be ready to settle down. He talks about
wanting a family, but there is a dark side to him. He was a drunk and a
drug user. He has an addict’s personality and always wants more. I’m
not sure any one woman can make him happy."
But maybe the naysayers have got it wrong, as other reports suggest that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are actually really happy together – so happy, in fact, that they’re going to get married in secret in March. Nicole has gone so far as to fly to Tennessee to meet Urban’s parents, and has been seen wearing a giant diamond ring since Christmas. A source close to Nicole is quoted as saying:
"Nicole is getting married in March. She is the happiest she’s ever been in her life and doesn’t want a long engagement."
So which one is true? Are they getting married or have they split up? We haven’t got the foggiest, so we’ll stick to what we do know – Nicole is rubbish at making comedies like The Stepford Wives and Bewitched, and Keith Urban is a dreadful singing cowboy. At least that much is clear to us.
