Nicole Checked Keith Into Rehab

Just last night, Nicole Kidman checked her new husband, country crooner, Keith Urban in a treatment rehabilitation centre.

“I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me,” said Keith. “One can never let ones guard down on recovery and I’m afraid that I have. With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome.”

The statement doesn't say what exactly he's in rehab for but I found a few articles about his prior cocaine use.

This is from USAWeekend from November 2001 ~

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."

Poor Nicole, she can't catch a break.

Once a drug addict, always a drug addict. Wish she wouldn't have married him. Feel sorry for her.

That's pretty ignorant of you to say. Although some people don't ever want to change, some do & change forever.

Crawl out of your little hole that you call "world" & learn a little something about human behavior.

Why don't you crawl out of YOUR little hole and YOUR ignorant world. You know nothing about my job experience with addicts, which is extensive. And you also don't seem to understand that addicts are never cured. They are always addicts even though they may have finally reached a state of sobriety. Which means they are recovering addicts. And more often than not, addicts have multiple relapses along the way. Your own extreme ignorance has left you with little understanding of or empathy for the utter devastation and destruction addicts heap upon their families, co-workers, spouses and friends year after year after grinding year. And Nicole Kidman's husband has not maintained sobriety long enough at any one time to be a safe bet for marriage. If you are one of those that have managed to sober up and stop ruining the lives of those around you, congratulations.

So thqat explains the Urban-Kidman marriage! He's only seen her while he's been drunk! Will the marriage survive his sobering up?
