The 'Implosion' Keith Urban Dreaded That Could Have Brought An End To His Marriage With Nicole Kidman

Keith Urban, 56, has been candid about his journey to sobriety after battling drug and alcohol addictions, which he overcame following his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

The singer of “Blue Ain’t Your Color” acknowledged that his addictions caused a “breakdown” in his marriage, but he praised the support he received from the Moulin Rouge actress, who helped him achieve sobriety.

Keith’s Rehab

“I caused the implosion of my fresh marriage,” he recalled to Rolling Stone in 2016. “It survived, but it’s a miracle it did. I was spiritually awoken with her. I use the expression, ‘I was born into her,’ and that’s how I feel. And for the first time in my life, I could shake off the shackles of addiction.”

Keith explained he had become reliant on Nicole and struggled to spend time alone when she was working abroad in Kosovo. 

“Meeting Nic and falling in love with Nic and starting a relationship with Nic became — I realize now in hindsight — my sobriety. That was how I was able to keep it together,” he began, adding: “It was during [Nicole’s] trip that that whole part of my world came back in and swamped me. And I remember just feeling so terrified. 

“We had just gotten married and this entity in my life is coming just to crush and kill everything that I’ve got. Everything that’s good. “

Nicole’s Support

The Big Little Lies star told Vanity Fair in 2007: “I’m more than willing to walk it with him. The two of us are very committed to our relationship.

“But it was painful, deeply painful. We were in a very, very, very bad, painful place, and have managed to step through it, and I hope that gives some people some hope who may be in the same place. And that’s enough said. Anything else is overindulgent and unnecessary right now. And I think it jinxes it, in a way, and that’s why I don’t go on about my enormous feelings for this man.”
