    Default Nicole Kidman calls off engagement

    ACTRESS Nicole Kidman is “thrilled” over plans for a secret wedding to Kiwi rock singer Keith Urban.
    The Hollywood star, 37 — with him above — has told her closest friends to prepare for the big day in March, The Sun can reveal.

    Nicole is already wearing a huge diamond engagement ring, which Keith presented her with at Christmas.

    She recently flew to Nashville, Tennessee, to meet 38-year-old Keith’s parents.

    And the beauty, who has two adopted children with ex-hubby Tom Cruise, introduced her family to them.

    A source close to Nicole said: “Nicole is getting married in March. She’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life and doesn’t want a long engagement.

    “Keith proposed at Christmas and she was thrilled. They’re happy and in love.

    “Nicole’s only inviting close friends and family — she doesn’t want a media circus. They’re discussing venues and are talking about doing it in Australia.”

    Nicole and Keith dated in secret for months after a pal introduced them at a Los Angeles party last January.

    Meanwhile, Cruise, 42, is thought to have put off plans to wed his actress fiancée Katie Holmes, 26, before she has their baby in the summer.

    The source insisted Nicole is NOT trying to beat him down the aisle, saying: “Nicole isn’t in any race. She’s on very friendly terms with Tom because they have children.

    “She’s quite simply extremely happy and just wants to be married to Keith. Their parents met and got along and Nicole’s buzzing with excitement.”

    Former hellraiser Urban, who has not been married before, is huge in Australia and the US.

    thesun.co.uk
    Hollywood Star Nicole Kidman has reportedly broken off her engagement to country singer Keith Urban, fearing he has 'not turned his back on his wild ways'.
    Urban, a former alcoholic crack cocaine addict with a reputation as a womaniser, is said to be "devastated" by the split from his lover of five months.

    Just two weeks ago, Kidman was proudly sporting the ostentatious 3.5-carat engagement ring Urban gave her. The pair spent Christmas together at the singer's £2.5million Nashville estate and there were rumours that they would tie the knot over New Year.

    But now the relationship seems to have faltered. A friend of Nicole told The Mail on Sunday: "Everything seemed to be going fine, but then she heard stories that Keith had not totally turned his back on his wild ways.

    "Nicole told Keith she needed space to think and had to break off their engagement.


    "The truth is, a lot of her friends were worried about him from the start because of his reputation as a womaniser and no one wants to see her hurt again. She feels Keith isn't ready to settle down. Keith's devastated but determined to win her back."


    Although they are both 38, with antipodean roots and lucrative showbiz careers, Kidman and Urban are worlds apart.

    Kidman is a glamorous leading lady from a middle-class Sydney family with a squeaky-clean image, while New Zealand-born Urban - who was raised on a dusty farm near Brisbane, Australia, before seeking his fortune in America - revels in his scruffy "Urban cowboy" reputation.

    But despite - or perhaps because of - his hellraising past, Nicole fell for Urban. The romance came after a series of failed relationships in the wake of her divorce from Tom Cruise, including affairs with rock star Lenny Kravitz and Liz Hurley's billionaire ex, Steve Bing but neither wanted a serious relationship.

    And now she fears Urban, who earned around £10million last year, cannot commit either.


    One woman who predicted trouble is veterinary assistant Laura Sigler, 35, who was Urban's girlfriend for eight years. She told The Mail on Sunday: "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."

    Nicole Kidman's representative did not return calls about the engagement break-up. A spokesman for Urban said: "We do not comment on Keith's private life."

    It is bound to happen sooner or later. What to believe? They were supposedly spotted by someone at the movie theater in Nashville on Saturday. Sunday having lunch with friends and going to a football game in Nashville. Sighting and report from a devoted fan site for Nicole. Don't want to badmouth either one of them there.

    He's spoken openly about his past drug problems:

    He admits to free-basing cocaine and says his lowest moment came almost three years ago. "I had this house in Nashville where I used to do drugs. It was a really cheap, run-down place. I remember one night crawling around on my hands and knees, looking for these little rocks at 5 in the morning, and I was drenched in sweat. It was the worst."

    Three days later, he checked himself into Cumberland Heights, a treatment center in Nashville. The previous months had brought "major chaos in my life. I pushed everybody away. Cocaine kills everything you need: belief and self-esteem. I was fortunate that I had music. But I think what got me out of it was spirituality. I just couldn't do it anymore."

    Was an engagement actually confirmed by the publicists/stars themselves, or was it merely a rumor floating around?

    I think they're a perfect match. I believe they both found each other at a perfect time in their lives and they're going to make. I don't think Keith would be so foolish as to revert back to his old ways. Anything I've seen/heard of him over the last while has always been positive. I've never had the impression that he's in any sort of trouble.

    I read something recently claiming he'd been in rehab again during the time he's been seeing Nicole. But I'm not sure if that was confirmed or just a rumor. I don't really know anything about him but I like Nicole so I keep up on her.

    I used to like him as a listener of country music. Now not so sure after finding out more about his personal life. You never hear much about the personal lives of the country music singers.

    I try to follow Keith because he's one of my favorite country singers. I'm not certain where a lot of the bad press around his personal life is coming from lately. He's always been extremely open about his past demons and speaks often of how far he's come and that he's never going back there. There has been nothing I've seen or read anywhere - aside from the rags - that states anything about him falling off the wagon so to speak. His career continues to flourish, his love life appears to be grand so...............

    I think if there was any truth to this, we'd definitely see Keith come forward. Why - when everything finally appears to be in order for him - would he start to falter? I think the backlash is simply the price he's paying for being one half of a high- profile couple.

    Until I see/hear more legitimate proof, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt.
