The Urban/Kidman's are Selling "Their" House...

I just looked at pictures of Keith Urban's home on the INTERNET. And sadly, some of the sites are calling it “her house”. Wow. It seems like yesterday that he was talking about his excitement about moving in. He really did love that house. He picked out the furnishings…the appliances, rugs, fixtures, everything. He entertained there. Many people came to parties and gatherings in the lovely home. He even had a place for his parents to stay. So why is this home on the market?

Well, dear readers, two words -- Nicole Kidman.

Remember two years ago when all those rumors about Kidman and Keith started and they were saying that she was visiting? Do you remember how maps of how to get to his house started showing up on the net? Finally, with Kidman showing up in November of '05, her favorite photographers were there too, and they never left. Until the day Keith left for his contractual wedding, there were always one or two photographers or reporters watching his house. Often if you went to a Keith site you would hear of someone driving by or another picture in a tabloid. Yes, Kidman brought the bright lights of publicity to Keith's private retreat. Why couldn't she have just let him have his home? After the marriage during the few times she has been in Nashville, Kidman again brought that glare with her so even when Keith wanted to be there on his own he couldn't. Was this on purpose?

I know some of you are probably saying hey, if he were my husband would I want to live in a house where my new husband entertained other women? Well, Nicole you expect Keith to live in the house that your true love bought you? You expect him to fly on a private jet that you shared with your true love and you think nothing of having him ride around on the yacht that was purchased by your former husband. So why couldn't you live in his house? That is what this is all about. It’s his house. It is the place that he lived in, loved in and a place he created for himself. Nicole Kidman is so damn insecure that she can't stand that he would keep this home. There are rumors that they or Kidman herself bought a condo in downtown Nashville to live in during one of her meet and greets with her husband. There are also rumors that they are buying land to build a farm on outside of Nashville. Whatever the case, I feel sad for Keith. If you look in the living room above the fireplace there is a large portrait of Keith from the Somebody Like You video shoot. Now we all know the significance of that shoot.

We also know that after that time is when Keith got to where he is. The house was a culmination of all his hard work and success. I doubt in the new house, wherever that will be, you will see a picture of Keith hanging above the mantle, but I just bet somewhere in that house Keith is hanging his head to cry. I think Kidman should be the one feeling bad.

this is the first time i'm posting here. these are some good points. it's ridiculous, she can prance him around in her house she lived with and slept in with Tom, but he sells his house? who really knows if she is making him do this, but it's a shame. he was excited about this house. it was his. something that was HIS before she came along.

banbotox said...

You are right-she should feel sad but I can bet you she doesn't-not one bit.
This is just another line item she can cross off of her list of "to dos" with regard to removing Keith from "his" world.
It's truly a beautiful home and I find it hard to understand why it's not good enough for her to stay in-since we all know she doesn't live in Nashville.
I remember how excited Keith was to have his home built-sigh...
Is there anything else he has to give up for her?

maclen said...

This is obviously just another sign, or another indication of just how this relationship truly works. She's in complete control, if she tells him to get rid of his house, its done. If she says fly across the world to my movie set between your little tour, it's done. Tell the fans she saved his life, done... It is interesting that news reports say she is selling her house, because at this point, i bet even urban believes that. Its apparent he has basically given her total obedience, total control of his life...well so much for the "Nashville bride", because i doubt if they will remain there, despite what she says in a interview that she fell in love with the place.

botox overload said...

yea, she fell in love with the place, and yet she's never there. mind you, i don't want to hear she is.

this house thing is weird. i wonder if it's still an active listing or if this is old? i wonder if it's sold already.

She's taking away everything that was ever Keith Urban. His Denali went away a couple of months ago, and now it is his home - not her house like some articles are letting us to believe. Does she have to shatter every dream he has fulfilled for himself and try to replace them with her Hollywood dreams? If she really knew him and cared for him, she would understand that this was the house that he dreamed of, built and decorated. If she loved him, how could she not love the house and want to call it her own? It is all about Nicole Kidman, isn't it? Destroy the man on the inside, and what do you have left of him?

don't believe the lies said...

I can see how most of you would be mad at her for this but what it really boils down to is Keith letting it happen. If he really wanted to keep the house, cars etc. wouldn't he be man enough to put his foot down and tell her no? Or is it in "the contract" that she gets his soul, balls and all other things he's attached to? I find this relationship (if you can even call it that) very sad.

I had hoped that Keith would have got out of it by now but it appears that he's in it for the long haul.

Adios Keith!

TO:URBAN MYTHS
I so hope that you see this. Sorry to post this here but your email link won't work as it goes to my OLD aol dial-up account and I have dsl now.
I would LOVE to be able to see the pictures of Keith's house could you PLEASE direct me to them.
THANKS so much! Peace

I forgot to mention earlier that I find it degrading for Keith to have to fly in the jet that Tom Cruise bought with his ex-wife. Keith has to sail on her yacht that she bought with her ex-husband, and Keith has to live in the house in Oz that his wife also bought with her first husband, but Keith can't keep anything that means something to him. Let's not forget about his first car he bought with the royalties from his first album. The name of the car escapes me right now, but he had to let that go to make room for the Bentley. What will be left of him when this is over?

Hello botox overload, isitoveryet and peace...Welcome to the jungle!....good to see you here.

Peace, heres a link to photos of the house:

...just copy the entire link and paste to your web browser...

botox overload, as you may have noticed, she says alot of things that she never does or actually follows up on... if she says something its simply part of the overall PR image shes trying to project. No one on this blog, for the most part, buy it.
Dont believe the lies, it is the exact reason urban is allowing this to happen, which I believe has caused alot of people, here at this blog for instance, to lose respect for him, and eventually, he will simply fade away to the fans, as he disappears behind her skirt.

Looking at the pictures of the inside of the house I was quite surprised to see how it was decorated. If that's how it was when Keith lived in it, then he was only "staying" there. It looked more like a posh hotel suite than a home. That bedroom is certainly NOT a guys room at all. Unless it's been re-decorated for sale, I found that whole place to be bland and unwelcoming.

Trixie said...

The house was staged. It does make me wonder how long he has been out of the house itself and wherehe is staying when he swoops into Nashville
for a few days like he has all summer. Bravo that Paul is finally doing his job working for Keith. We sure don't want people thinking that Keith and the Wife would be moving to LA or anything.. But didn't Keith say it? "Home is where she is" too bad he was lying through his teeth.

maclen said...

Urban is going to learn from kidman that celebs dont own "homes", they own real estate. When you read in an interview that they're buying land in Oz, so they can build their dream house... it just means that their investment agents are buying it for their "portfolio". Does anyone actually believe they want to settle down and have a brood of kids, and raise goats? When celebs buy a mansion in the hollywood hills the first thing they do is tear out the interior for renovation... they put in another swimming pool, tennis courts, maybe a theater room, all simply to raise the value of the property. Sure, they may stay there a few days or weeks, if they happen to be passing though to their next appearence, or movie set or business meeting. But its all just for investment, its not home for them.

not me...i could just move right in...i think it's gorgeous, but i believe it has been staged, also

welcome to the new posters!

The fact that Keith is selling his pre-marital residence, but is expected to live in Nicole and Tom's house when in Sydney does show who is control of this relationship.

A bit of info on the Nashville condo story. The latest spin mentions them buying a unit in the Signature Tower. That building is not scheduled for completion until 2009. So it wouldn't exactly provide a place for them to spend the night after Keith's house is sold and before their country estate is built.
I've also seen tabloids mention them having a unit in the Viridian Tower downtown. Don't know if that is true, but at least that building exists.

notachance said...

Hmmm.... wonder where that Bentley is parked now that house is up for sale? Can't imagine that it's in the ga-rage.

maclen said...

It seems pretty irrelevant where they buy a home, or whether they do buy in Nasville, or on the north pole for that matter. I think the simple point is that its pretty obvious, on this blog anyway, and that is she has decided to sell urbans home, ...and at a paltry 2+ mill besides... How often in the past year have they spent at this place? How often in the next year will they spend in Nashville? Urban spent the time living on the tour bus, on the jet flying back and fourth to Oz, while kidman lives from which ever mansion or villa the studios, that are pretty foolish to hire her, pay for. If the reports are right, she's already set to start production on her next film, while urban is still on tour. That is some impressive "home life" for the newlyweds, who also claim to want to have kids, someday... but not now...maybe later...maybe next year? Maybe when Urban has had enough of kidman all to himself?

NotBuyingItInNashville said...

Just my guess but I'm sure a brand new bigger and better house for Keith in Nashville is part of the contract with Kidman.

Which of course, doesn't bother Kidman at all, because she has no plans to EVER live here.

Imahick said...

I like the house, myself. I don't know if it was staged...if you look at his BSE video from 05, it looks like the same decor to me.

This relationship is entirely one sided. Keith has made many concessions ... NK has made none, that I can see. At some point, that will wear thin.

I think it's sad that he has to sell this house, but face it, they were never going to live in Nashville again. And that house is stained with Keith's M&M munching days. I think they'll buy property ... maybe even a condo there. I think they'll continue to tell the world how much they love Nashville and will even occasionally go there. But I don't think NK will ever be happy LIVING in Nashville. This is all for show.

Currently, Keith needs to be associated with Nashville...the voting for the CMA's is happening right now. To distance himself further from country music would be foolish career wise. NK needs to look like the supportive wife ... so that she can use it to gain sympathy down the road, when this whole mess implodes.

So of course they are going to "live" there ... sure, why not tell everyone how much they love Nashville ... how much NK wants to milk her goats and make her cheese in Nashvegas. Sadly, I think Keith does love Nashville. Unfortunately, he also loved many many young hoochie mamas in Nashville ... and there in is the trouble. NK doesn't want any more embarrassment.

Thats a good point, imahick. Must be why Urban's PR hack came out only a few days later to make clear that they are building on nearby land and not moving away. I wouldnt be surprised if this new place for Urban is built with all the latest surveillance epuipment, with check out and in points...sign in/out... you know, but only not to keep the undesireables or media out, but rather all designed to keep Urban IN!

CJ said...

It's not like they don't have enough money to support two house holds in Nashville?!? He could have kept it for his family to stay in when they come to visit. Oh wait, she doesn't allow that anymore either.

CJ said...

I've seen several pics of them going in and out of Tom's Darling Point mansion. Did they ever even move in to the beach house apartment she bought right before the wedding that Keith probably never saw before the purchase? We got a pic of Keith "having a stag party with Nic and her family" the week of the wedding then nothing.

There's also the London house she bought (while Keith was in rehab and also couldn't have seen before purchase) that they never moved in to. Why sell Keith's house? What's one more vacant property? Oh right, Keith actually spends time in TN. Kidman forbid he be allowed to have a home there to live in.
