Back in New York for Special Events and THe Wife Still Doesn't Support Him

February 13, 2008, was a special day in the life and career of Keith Urban. For the first time in his career he got to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York. This is a big deal for any artist and must have been exciting personally as well as being a career milestone. Where was Keith's wife on this very special concert date? Was she on site, supporting her husband, and enjoying the show? Nope. She was half a world away in Australia. Now later in the month she could travel from Australia to Japan to promote her movie career and then commute to the US in time to attend and present at the Oscar's, an award show related to her industry. Keith escorted her even though it had nothing to do with him. He went to support his wife. Millions of spouses a day do things they don't want to because it's good for their spouse and/or makes their spouse happy. After all the trips scheduled for Keith to travel between Australia and the States, Nicole could not this once do something for her husband and come to New York for this special day? I don't care if she was four-five months pregnant she should have been there. If she was thirteen months pregnant and had to give birth backstage she still should have been there. Not only did she not support his work for his career but she did not support the talented musician that is her husband. Even Keith said he wished she had been there.

So it's seven months later and Keith is back in New York for more special events. He is one of three musicians performing in concert to kickoff the NFL season. He is the only country artist in the lineup of performers and the concert is a big deal. Lots of promotion, interviews, advertising, and parts of the concert were streamed online as it happened for the world to see in addition to the fans attending live. Keith was scheduled to play at half time for the Thanksgiving game in 2006 but had to cancel because of his rehab stay. It took almost two years to reschedule his NFL appearance. Was Nicole by her husband's side this time, supporting the man she married and his career? Nope. She's still out of the country, this time in London rehearsing for a movie that doesn't start filming for several weeks yet. I can't imagine marrying a man I had so little respect for. Her selfish, self-centeredness has got to be without compare.

After the NFL kickoff concert Keith will also take part in Fashion Rocks, which films Friday Sept. 5 and airs Tues Sept 9. Again, lots of advertising and promotion for what's being called "one of the biggest events of the year" in New York. This star-studded concert, honoring the extraordinary relationship between fashion and music, will kick off New York's Fall Fashion Week at Radio City Music Hall. Ticket proceeds from the event will benefit Stand Up To Cancer, a campaign for cancer research. Performers will include Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Kid Rock, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Pussycat Dolls, and Timbaland with special guest Lynyrd Skynyrd among others. Isn't Nicole supposed to be a "fashion icon"? One would think this would be right up her alley, if not for the music then for the fashion and for the free PR. Isn't Nic also (supposed to be) a champion for cancer research? If her husband is performing why isn't she there to support him and the causes? Don't even try to feed me the "She's preparing for a film role" excuse. Filming doesn't start for another few weeks. If she can move a coach into her home days after giving birth to her daughter to coach her in voice and dance in preparation for the movie, even before finishing work on Australia, she can leave for a few days, take her coach with her, and rehearse in the States when Keith isn't performing. It's called compromise. Such a shame Kidman doesn't understand the word or the concept. If she would open her eyes she could learn it from Keith. That's all he has done the entire time they have been together, put aside what he wants, needs, and is best for him and his career to do whatever the wife asks, or more likely, tells him to do.

Before you argue I can't prove that Nicole isn't in New York remember you can't prove she is. There has been very little media attention paid to her since she arrived in London. If she flew back to the States to support Keith I have no doubt pictures would be taken and released by every media outlet possible. Just like she did when they arrived in Australia with the baby for the first time. This would be the perfect photo opportunity for her, supporting a good cause, enjoying the fashions, and getting credit for supporting her husband for a change, but she is too focused on her movie and her career to see that. Why pay for advisers that you never listen to?

These appearances could have given Keith's career a very nice boost. If he had any concerts to sell tickets to. If he had any music less than two years old to promote. If he wasn't taking most of the rest of the year off to "spend with his family". I don't begrudge him time with his family. I just don't think he should have to sacrifice his career, and leave the country, to do it. Keith, learn a little selfishness from your wife and start doing what's good for your career - while you still have one. If you keep catering to the Mrs., who continues to make NO concessions for you personally or professionally, your career will be DOA before you know it.

excellent blog....personally i'm gonna look at the NFL/Fashion Rocks as career moves in the right direction....i just hope he continues...

and while he's at it, write some good new music - saw that SHIRT got ousted pretty quickly by Jimmy Wayne

Imahick said...

I agree that the NFL Kickoff and Fashion Rocks are great for Keith's career. Too bad that there is nothing to follow, to take advantage of that momentum. He made it to #1 with Shirt...but what's next. Does he have a new song ready? Or will we have a three or four month drought until he finds the time to write and record something? Or will he dip back into the past album file and find another old song that will appeal to country radio?

Nope...I don't think he has anything ready. He will do his last show and fly back to the UK to hold NK's water bottle and accompany her to her events, during the roll out of Australia.

It's been that way since 2005. He won ETOY...and then, took time off, started to work "part time" while catering to NK...and since then, we all know how his career has gone.

I agree so strongly with this blog. It's all about NK...nothing, not her children, not her "own" baby, not her husband, not her father ...NO ONE and NOTHING gets in the way of HER career and HER needs.

Well it seems the orb has been granted a few weeks to devote, and to be to himself, as it seems kidman has sunk into a seemingly PR void... perhaps due to the added stress and being overwhelmed by an actual post delivery depression of having a kid... into the only thing that she can withdraw into. And that's the make believe world of a movie set. As I once stated... I truly forsee the publicity for this movie, Nine... the magazine and tv promo theme will absolutely be..." This movie, Nine, saved me when I suffered postpartem depression after having my baby"...and yada yada... etc etc...just as her role in The Hours, where she plays a depressive suicide "saved her" after getting dumped by cruise. Kidman is totally self absorbed and too narcisstic to even "act" like she cares about what the orb is trying to do with his career.

Can I ask how Keith got the nickname "Orb". Thanks.

Funny, you really don't want her there but you complain that she's not. And when she is its never for the right reasons. Complain, complain, complain. How much "support" does Keith need to play at an NFL kickoff? Or a fashion show that includes stars like Denis Leary? That seems more than a little over the top. Just say what you really mean...that you want Nicole to quite acting and never do another film project again.

The bottom line is that Nicole has been there for him when Keith really needed her. During rehab, to stick by him and work through their problems, keep their marriage together. And when Nicole was pregnant Keith was the supportive husband and there for the birth. He allows her to do her thing and vice versa. Sure it is nice when your spouse can come along but Nicole and Keith have been there for each when it truly counts.

The skeptics don't want KUNK to have a partnership, a marriage that works for them. They want Keith to be in the public eye and Nicole to be never heard from again.

notachance said...

The reason she doesn't attend those functions with him comes down to basic dollars & (non)cents. Since she will NEVER fly commercial, the private jet must be used and she is not going to use that willy-nilly. There must be a monetary compensation to her in order for her to use that jet. The rare occassions that it has been used for personal trips for the two of them, I'm betting somewhere someone else has footed that bill - I don't think she pays for the use of that thing EVER.

sounds good to me..
and three visits to rehab in 90 days yep that was supportive. She hasn't been there for his career unless it helps her too. The Grammys couldn't help her this time but the Arias could.

so no I hope she doesn't show up
but of course we will have to endure the love up couple sometime in the next few weeks because she could never let him have any good press now could she- show me where she has?

nikki said...

Nicole, Nicole, Nicole...please, Keith's beautiful, beautiful princess, leave Keith alone. Haven't you noticed that when you're not around, he actually smiles? This next week is a very important week for the future of Keith Urban, not Keith Kidman, that has been ruling Mr. Urban's life for what seems like years. Next Wednesday the nominations for the CMA awards are announced. I can only keep my fingers crossed that he's nominated for entertainer- an award he deserves so much. So, Nicole...let our Keith go. Let him date Carrie Underwood for Christ's sake! She's young, beautiful and very talented...those of us that saw them on tour together at the beginning of the year, know that he wanted to do more than just sing with her. Possibly he did...but please, let him get on with his life and quit catering to your needs when you obviously can't hold up your end of the deal.

hesaweiner said...

I don't want her there. He can have the fun, er support of people like Kid Rock and a handful of fashion models.LOL

ecoaster70 said...

Very rarely do I go along with what's said on this blog, but this entry? Completely agree with it. One correction though, she wasn't filming Australia when Keith played at The Garden. She was "relaxing" in Australia. So she had no excuse not to be there. I found it very sad when Keith mentioned in his video that he'd wished his wife was there with him. Very sad indeed.

I agree with Tara, 2 or 3 trips to visit Keith in rehab isn't exactly what I would call supportive. That's all she could sqeeze in between her movie shoots, photo sessions, hosting dinner parties for directors, going to Switzerland to open watch stores & hobnob with rich people. She claimed she was only had to film for 3 weeks but yet she was in London for 8 weeks. Doesn't quite add up does it? I still find it amazing too how cameras were able to get onto a secured facility?? Then, after a 2 week "break", Nicole heads to Sydney in Mid-December, leaving her kids & Keith in CA so she can do a script reading for a movie that isn't being filmed for another 5 months.

Do you know where Nicole was 2 days before Keith entered rehab? She was seen shopping in Beverly Hills. Meanwhile Keith was back in Nashville at Ronnie Dunn's house talking about, as Ronnie put it, God & Family. And Nicole was shopping.

Nicole does not go out of her way to support Keith. Only when it's convenient for her will she do it. And only if she can get good PR for it.

"Can I ask how Keith got the nickname "Orb". Thanks."

Glad you asked choice... "orb" is my nickname for him...it's taken from the paranormal world of investigation...
a defination:
"One of the leading theories concerning what orbs are and the one that I lean towards the most is that they are not the spirit at all. The orb is the energy being transferred from a source (i.e. powerlines, heat energy, batteries, people, etc) to the spirit so they can manifest. This may not even be a conscious thing the spirit is doing, just a natural way they get their energy."
...and I thought that fit the orb(urban)...perfectly... a massless form of energy derived from an external source...ie... a spirit... a ghost... a "pale" figure... KIDMAN!! The orb is just another roving satellite, basically satisfied and amenable to revolve around kidmans schedule and life... the escort...valet...photo op stand in...etc... spineless and wishy washy...bland and always accomidating to her wishes... a human cameleon, a real life "Zelig" (ie: Woody allen film....) ... and in the forseeable future... soon to be, no doubt based on kidman past history... installed as a "Mr MOM".

Are you serious? NK wasn't there when Keith was initially admitted to rehab. I have that from a very good source. She visited him 3 times in 90 days and during one of those sessions, some very good quality pictures were shot. How did that happen? BFC is a first rate facility ... no nonsense goes on there. Those pictures were an inside job...and I think NK is responsible. That's how supportive she is. She had pictures taken of him when he was in a vulnerable state. Nice.

Like someone else said, NK flew off to Oz for the holidays in mid-Dec 06 leaving her children (mind you, they are her ADOPTED children) and Keith, her husband of four months, in LA. He had to get out of treatment on Christmas day to fly over there to see her. That is how supportive she is.

She did exactly what served her purpose throughout 2007 & 2008, and he catered to her. He's put his career on hold ... on slow down, to accommodate her filming schedule. He missed the Grammies, but she made sure they were back in the US in time for...the OSCARS.

You are going to have to do better than that, RC, to support a claim that NK does anything to support Keith. And now, when he has some momentum going with this great TV coverage, he is going on hiatus for goodness knows how long. Will there be a single to release to radio? Will there be a new album in early 2009? I'm starting to doubt that, now. Sadly, I think he is going to be following her around promoting her movies and not be able to focus on his music enough to put together a good album. He NEEDS a good album, followed by a tour that is substantial and not totally worked around HER schedule.

notachance said...

imahick, I agree with what you say, however I still have this feeling that this is what Keith wants. These are Keith's decisions, not hers. I think he wants to be the one that gives 100% of himself to another (for the first time in his life). I really don't think he is being forced to do anything.

Just my opinion.

hoosierlady said...

I agree, he's not being forced to do anything. He is choosing this every minute of each day. However, I don't think he knew how far south it would go, or maybe he underestimated her devastation?

The family dynamics of the Kidman household must have been wild, to have produced someone like this. She seems to be so totally into herself she doesn't see, at least I hope she doesn't realize, just how badly her actions effect others. If she knows and willfully treats people like this, as a manipulative weapon, whoa. She's whacked. She just might be whacked enough to be as I thought when I first learned about her, loony tunes. The matching Cruise/Urban relationship pictures, the matching quotes, all those bodyguards, the paps, adopting the kids and then leaving them with L. Ron Hubbard's son. The botox, the seemingly strange parenting skills she has. . . the inability to keep the truth straight. . .it all makes me wonder if the light upstairs isn't firing all the wattage. I mean less every passing year.

Just a thought.

However, he needs to get a grip. His leash is so short he's going to hang himself. Since he's going to be grounded anyway, I hope he uses this time to write and do studio work in London. He said once he wanted to be a relevant musician, maybe if he uses this time wisely, he can come back when it's over.

stillhopefull said...

OK...not sure how many of you will agree w/ me but, I think Kid Rock needs to get ahold of Mr. Urban this weekend and shake the shit out of him then give him a copy of his new cd. Tell him to listen to it...do what you need to do for your soul....get rid of the bagage and begin to make some GOOD music again! Not at all saying the wee one can't be apart of it...just not the frozen one!

I tend to agree with you. But I think that is part of NK's manipulation. Keith is clearly smitten by her ... impressed by her fame ... star struck. She helped him when he unravelled in 2006 (even though I thoroughly believe she was part of the reason for his decline) by getting him into BFC, and not kicking his butt to the curb.

She's convinced him that she's his savior and he believes it. He believes he owes her his career and perhaps his life. And she perpetuates this misbelief by keeping him isolated from those who might influence him and by keeping him on the run. He loves the life style, that I'm sure of. But I think he feels obligated ... to cater to her every need. Obviously, NK isn't going to lift a finger for him.

I think he is there out of choice, but she is taking full advantage of a vulnerable man to keep him there. Do you believe he is happy? In spite of what he says, he looks happy ONLY when he's working...when he's on stage, when he's discussing his music. When he's holding her hand and leading her around, he looks stressed, uncomfortable and miserable.

It seems to me that ultimately, he will resent having made all these sacrifices. I think at some point, he will start to blame her for the decline in his career. She could have made some concessions...and the fact she has not just reveals how terribly self absorbed and arrogant she is.

maclen said...

So apparently my "Mr Mom" comment about the orb is catching on...courtesy of kidman press appendage...which the orb is now putting into use for himself...

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20223967,00.html

"Keith Urban: Being Mr. Mom Is 'Beautiful'

But when I just made that comment, I meant in the future... but of course the orb has adopted kidman's BS publicity mongering... and claims he is now a "full time " dad... and that is hard to do when he's been in the states a few weeks and his kid is all the way back in the UK with the nannies. "Fulltime" means "all the time... real "full" time fathers dont spend weeks away from their new borns... but then who is stupid enough to believe this magazine planted story is reality. And by the way... how long has the orb been in the states now? Has it been longer, or will it be longer than the 12 days that he and kidman claimed they are never apart for? Will they then change it to 15 days... 20 days... a month? Whatever the case, in the fantasy and make believe world of hollywood, where every thing gets documented, its hard for them to keep their stories straight or consistant...or based in reality, for that matter. But the orb is learning the disengenuous nature from a hardcore addict.

hoosierlady said...

She helped him when he unraveled in 2006 (even though I thoroughly believe she was part of the reason for his decline) by getting him into BFC, and not kicking his butt to the curb.

I always thought this was a NK PR move to get him out of the limelight during the time when they story was about the party girl he partied with while he was engaged to NK. Also, it is my opinion that in exchange for this benevolent service on her part, (all hail Nic), he probably had to donate the sperm, thereby sealing his fate.

These celebrities and trotting out the kiddies whenever there is a Kodak moment, figuratively or literally, make me sick. All the people in the world that can't have kids, and all of us who work so hard to give them what they needed, dreamed of giving them the stuff they wanted, and they just give them to a nanny, and walk away. Pretty sad.

I think he's getting his fix on playing music in the 'rock world'. I think it started around the concert for Earth last year, I can't remember the name, Alicia Keys, bunches of people, it rocked, Live something, anyway, I think maybe he thought NK could be his keys to the rock kingdom? Who knows, I just wish he'd go back to writing decent music. He can use his kid for inspiration, (if he's around her enough). He better be careful, thought, country music fans are a fickle bunch if they get 'done wrong'.

It's sooooooooooo CUTE the way he thinks they are all going to ever be together on the road again!!! Isn't he just the cutest thing!

Can someone keep a count on that days apart tally?

For some women, the stress of a baby can dull that 'ache' she speaks of. But, we know, she not just any woman, depended upon how much she needs the publicity, she may 'ache' even more!

You may want to actually look at his schedule before making comments like that. He hasn't been spending weeks away from the baby. Far from it. And yes, it is documented. There have been just enough photos to show where Keith has been and when.

Ok, ecoaster70, I'll play along... you seem to have it figured out...how long exactly has the orb been away from his newborn?

Berry Hill said...

Great Blog!
He does seem to be on a roll so naturally we can anticipate her bringing him to a screeching stop.

Perhaps this points the way to the beginning of the end? I'm not that optimistic. We've seen signs of the beginning of the end before.
Still, this article is interesting:


Nicole Kidman Fears Drug Relapse For Keith Urban

By Adam Nutburn,
September 6 2008

Nicole Kidman fears her country music star husband Keith Urban could suffer a drug relapse sparked by his recent back injury.

Urban, who most recently sought treatment for alcohol abuse in 2007, has a painful slipped disc, but he's still touring and has postponed surgery.

A source tells America's National Enquirer magazine, "At some point Keith is likely going to need pain meds, and Nicole's worried that with his addictive personality, all the progress he's made over the past year will slip away."

Keith, 40, first entered rehab to battle addictions to cocaine and alcohol in 1998. He relapsed two years later, and again in 2006 and went into rehab for a second time - just four months after their marriage.

"Everything is going so well. Nicole and Keith have the baby of their dreams. They love their new life together, and Keith has been sober for more than a year and a half," the friend added. "With Keith's diagnosis coming in the middle of his tour and Nicole staying in Australia with the baby, it's no wonder she's concerned."

Weak sad Keith Urban - in case anyone got the wrong impression from the NFL thing or Fashion Rocks

Berry Hill I do believe you are on to something

and there is no proof that Keith has been in London at all. Yeah he said on a phone interview he was there but he has lied before
I think he has been in the states for the last few weeks
although he probably isn't anymore

and of course Kidman couldn't go out by her self or with the baby alone- not quite yet- that will be later - won't it??

hoosierlady said...

"With Keith's diagnosis coming in the middle of his tour and Nicole staying in Australia with the baby, it's no wonder she's concerned."

Nicole is staying where with what?

Nicole is in London dancing with Daniel Day-Lewis.

My eyebrows went up when I heard slipped disc, we discussed this on this blog. Perfect timing for Miss N, poor her, strapped with a baby, working on a new movie, and that scoundrel husband of hers back in Betty Ford's. It's perfect PR. Would you like a little oxicontin with that Australia?

I wonder how much his self respect was worth? Surely not just what he got in the prenup.

I can see where it could look like a bandage but it's a bracelet. Silver. Links so big I don't know if you can call them links. He wore it a few years back. Haven't seen it for some time.

Tara said...

I remember it well Berry Hill
he wore it on Leno and we all wondered about it..

the captain said...

I am still getting over this quote:

"When my wife's working and I've got time off, I'm just Mr. Mom during the day, taking care of the little girl," said Urban, 40, who also called fatherhood "beautiful."

So he hangs out with "the little girl" ONLY when botox bride is working (1st priority in that house) and he's got time off (2nd priority) but EVEN THEN he'll only do Dad duties in daylight hours. Oh Keith.....that's an appalling admission.

Yes. We wondered how he could play guitar with it! It's not his usual style. Didn't someone discover Keith said it was a gift?

TexasCourtJester said...

When the wife's working he's not at home with the baby - he is sitting on the film set twiddling his thumbs and holding her water bottle.

hesaweiner said...

I remember a big link type bracelet a few years ago, but it was actually a watch, is that it?

TexasCourtJester said...

The National Movie Awards 2008 will see a fantastic array of stars attend both as nominees and award presenters including NICOLE KIDMAN, MERYL STREEP, SAMUEL L JACKSON and EMMA WATSON. They will take place on Monday 8th September at London’s Royal Festival Hall and will be broadcast on Tuesday 9th September on ITV1 at 8pm.

Wanna take bets that Keith will be there escorting and supporting Nicole? I'm sure he left the US right after the concert Sat to be sure and be there on time - maybe even get some pictures of them going to and from rehearsals like before the Oscar's. Again, it's all about her and her career. He's there for her, she's nowhere to be found for him. She can take time away from rehearsals for this but not to come to NY to be with Keith during his big televised performances.

hoosierlady said...

Look! Someone has kept track of his schedule since the birth! Now we can use this information to figure out how many days she can go without him!




1) Sat. 7/19 - Philadelphia, about a 2 hour flight from Nashville
2) Sat. 7/26 - Foxboro, maybe a 3 hr flight
3) Sat. 8/2 - Detroit, 1 1/2 hr flight
4) Sat. 8/16 - Houston. Flew in from Sydney the day before show but left right after.
5) Sat. 8/23 - Northern CA. Flew in from Sydney the day of the show.
6) Sat. 8/30 - Halifax. Flew in from London the day before. About a 6 hr flight from London if he flew in direct. Don't know if he flew back to London after show. I would guess he did.
7) Sat. 9/13 - Indianapolis - final concert of the year and more than likely flying in from London.

Of course he will be in London for her appearance. He's her most expensive accessory.

TexasCourtJester said...

Yeah, I saw that schedule but it's wrong. We know he didn't go back to London after the 8/30 concert and they don't have the NY NFL kickoff from Thurs or the Fashion Rocks filmed Fri. His last concert was Sat and I'm sure he's on his way to London for her silly awards presentation.

hoosierlady said...

Did he cancel the 9/13 in Indianapolis?

I know, I know, she is more important, I keep forgetting that part.

Choice said...

You have to try to understand that with a newborn, she cant be with him all the time. She'd be too tired as she doesn't have nannies or a private jet. Please be more sympathetic to these hardworking mums, OK LOL

Not a problem, I am only human and have my off days now and then. lol

"Did he cancel the 9/13 in Indianapolis?"

Sorry, I thought Sat was the 13th instead of the 6th. I just gained a whole week!

"she doesn't have nannies or a private jet."

I just snorted tea out my nose. Thanks a lot.

Check out the photo of Keith attending the National Movie Awards last night with Nicole. Such a good husband to support her (although she wasnt receiving any awards) - see below:

Forgive me for being a few days late, but let me comment on Nicole being a no-show in NYC.

I saw the concert on NFL's cable channel, where I had to endure three anchors debating beforehand whether Nicole would show up. One actually said that inquiries were being made at that time to find out. Frankly, who gives a dead rat's ass if a non-musical wife shows up at her husband's concert?

Spare me Kidman's presence. I have no doubt she would have (happily) stolen Keith's thunder and pulled focus away from him and his set. And Keith, puss that he is, would have let her. (Getting an audience to serenade her with "Happy Birthday" still fries me.)

You make an excellent point there euterpe2. Maybe skeptics, there is a reason she isn't showing for some of his stuff, and it isn't all about her - maybe the reason his him and he chooses to keep the work to himself.

All the better if you ask me!

Whatever Keith did prior to rehab is just that - prior to rehab. When he came out of BF he made the commitment to her and the marriage at that time.
