    Country singer Keith Urban has confirmed his father Robert Urban has passed away after battling cancer.

    The 48-year-old singer confirmed the sad news to People, revealing his dad died on Saturday.

    "I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that [Nicole Kidman] and I, and our family, have received since my Dadís passing on Saturday night," his moving statement explained.

    "His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace. My dad's love of country music and America set me on my life's journey, and shaped so much of who I am today."

    "Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers."

    Where was Nicole Kidman at her husband's dad's funeral?

    When Nicole Kidman’s father Antony passed away last year, her husband Keith Urban was a pallbearer at his funeral, and enveloped his distraught wife in a protective hug as the coffin was lowered into the ground.

    It was a truly heartbreaking scene – but also a very touching moment for a woman leaning on her husband when she needed him the most.

    Yesterday, it was sadly Keith’s turn to lay his own beloved dad Robert to rest in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.

    Amid the sadness of Bob’s death – which was expected, after a long battle with prostate cancer – there was one baffling element to the funeral that represented Keith’s dad so well – Nicole was nowhere to be seen.

    In his somber black suit and tie, Keith cut a solitary figure at the service. He arrived at the wheel of his dad’s beloved Lincoln Continental, flanked by Bob’s mates on growling motorcycles.

    The scene was a far cry from when Dr Antony Kidman was laid to rest in September last year after passing away suddenly in Singapore, when Nicole was flanked by Keith and her daughters at a Sydney church.

    It was a terrible year for the Kidmans. In April, Nicole’s sister Antonia was left devastated when her ex-husband and father of her children Angus Hawley died.

    And again, when the A-list actress rushed to Sydney from her home in Nashville to comfort her sister, Keith was faithfully by her side.

    According to The Daily Telegraph, Nicole and her daughters were “too grief-stricken” to attend their “Poppy Bob’s” funeral after such a traumatic year.

    While it’s unclear where in the world Nicole and her daughters are at the moment, speculation is that she’s ensconced in her and Keith’s Nashville home.

    In a statement last week, Keith said, “I’ve been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that [Nicole Kidman] and I, and our family, have received since my dad’s passing. His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace.”

    Rest in peace, Robert Urban.

    So where was Nicole? It's not very nice to bury your Dad on your own.

    She's allegedly filming something, somewhere.

    I'm sure she could get a few days off filming (not that she's so busy these days.)

    So, either she is as cold as rumored, or this really is a bearding marriage, and he preferred to be alone in his grief, rather than put on a show for the paps.

    That's what I think although she makes him be all over her for her red carpet events and he went to her family funerals so she could at least be consistent if not actually nice.
