Keith Urban - Cocaine Addict, Alcoholic, Sex Addict... and Total Loser??
So much for fairytales. Just months after his romantic wedding to Aussie Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, and weeks away from his much-anticipated album release, Keith Urban's life is should be floating somewhere in the realm of happily ever after.
But instead of celebrating his 39th birthday on Thursday with family and friends, the country rocker will be seeking treatment at Cumberland Heights, a rehabilitation centre in his home town of Nashville.
Urban is no stranger to the facility - that is where he sought treatment for cocaine addiction in 1998. However this time his demon is alcohol. Urban has not shied away from speaking about his addictions, once describing the moment he realised he needed help: when he found himself on his hands and knees searching for crack cocaine.
"I had this house in Nashville where I used to do drugs," he said. "It was a really cheap, rundown place. I remember one night crawling around on my hands and knees, looking for these little rocks at five in the morning, and I was drenched in sweat. It was the worst."
Three weeks later Urban checked himself into Cumberland Heights.
Urban recently wrote: "One can never let one's guard down on recovery and I'm afraid that I have. I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me."
So four months ago Nicole Kidman married Keith Urban... is it just me or was this one of the biggest mistakes she could possibly make? The guy is a 'reform' cocaine addict, and alcoholic and apparently a sex addict. It has been in all the glossy magazines here that he has also had an affair with a porn star. The guy had second thoughts about getting married before their big day... what other signs does Nicole Kidman need??
I don't want to sound like I am being really nasty, the guy is at least getting some help for his problems, but does anyone else think this guy is a bit of a loser?
