Tom Cruise Played Role in Keith Urban's Trip to Rehab

by at . Comments

Although October 26 marked Keith Urban's 39th birthday, the occasion was less than celebratory. Urban, who's been pulling a Nicole Richie (minus the whole starvation thing), spent the day in a treatment center for alcohol abuse. It's quite sad, and leaves many questioning the future prospects of Kurban.

Meanwhile, Keith's wife of four months, Nicole Kidman, also 39, dined at the Beverly Hills restaurant Matsuhisa, ordering sashimi along with a smattering of her Australian relatives.

"It was a quiet dinner," says an observer of their one-hour meal. "Nicole seemed happy to be with her family."

And her friends: The night before, Kidman took her nephew (below) for dinner at the home of BFF and fellow Aussie Naomi Watts.

As for Urban, a source close to the singer says he may have HAD to go to rehab because of a condition in his prenup with Kidman, who shares two adopted children, Connor (below), 11, and Isabella, 13, with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.

"Nicole's lawyer put this clause in to demonstrate to Tom that Keith's past problems wouldn't affect the kids," says the source.

Urban did a stint in rehab for cocaine addiction in 1998. Cruise was clearly worried about his instability and its impact on his children. For good reason, apparently.

Say what you will about TomKat, the craziness regarding their upcoming wedding, and the whole mystery surrounding Suri Cruise/Bjork. Tom Cruise has shown he's a caring father -- and while we're not about to heap credit on him for what he's supposed to be doing, he could be Bobby Brown. Remember that.
