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.
