Keith Urban feared rehab would destroy his marriage

Country star Keith Urban has opened up about his stints in rehab, saying that he had been terrified that the time away from his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, would ruin their marriage.

The couple had only been married four months when Kidman and others close to Urban staged an intervention on the cocaine-addled singer.

Talking to Oprah on Monday (November 29), Urban said: “[I thought], ‘Surely let's give it a few years so we've got some solidity, because this kind of thing could tear us apart.’”

However, the 2006 period in rehab (Urban’s third time) was a success – Urban chocks much of that up to his wife’s support.

“It was really a profound moment in so many ways,” he said. “The way in which Nic handled that moment was just perfect.

“I look back now and realise Nic has taught me so much and brought so much into my life and opened my eyes in so many ways. [This is] the best place I've ever been.”
