Trouble in paradise? Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban ‘had a red carpet argument’ at her Lion premiere in Sydney just days before dancing up a storm on stage on New Year’s Eve
She’s the Hollywood star hoping to score an Oscar nomination for her latest role. And while Nicole Kidman, 49, shined at the Sydney premiere of her new movie Lion, she also allegedly engaged in an embittered argument with husband Keith Urban.
Moments before the handsome couple hit the red carpet to pose for photographers, New Idea reports they had a ‘furious row’ after speaking with media.
According to the magazine, fans have revealed the power duo, both aged 49, spoke to reporters and then proceeded to trade ‘bitter insults’ with each other.
The cause of the alleged spat is claimed to be Keith’s purported displeasure at his wife’s career getting in the way of their reunited family time in Australia.
An insider allegedly revealed hectic work schedules – Keith’s six months of touring and Nicole’s back-to-back films – caused the pair to spend most of 2016 apart.
‘They were meant to meet up in Sydney for a family Christmas, leaving work aside for a couple of weeks and concentrating on themselves for once,’ they said.
The veteran actress has a gruelling press schedule for Lion to drum up support from the Academy, and her husband is described as being frustrated at her for it.
‘Nicole is so sick of Keith constantly sulking,’ an alleged friend of hers said.
‘He needs to realise that Nicole’s career is important to her, and to start being more supportive. It’s very frustrating for her,’ they continued.
It was a different story for the high-profile twosome on New Year’s Eve, as Nicole thrilled fans by joining her husband on stage in Nashville for a spirited performance.
She danced unabashedly as Keith paid musical tribute to the year’s fallen stars, including Prince, Leonard Cohen and David Bowie.
The married couple of 10 years shared a passionate kiss during Keith’s headlining gig, televised as part of CNN’s multi-timezone celebration.
