As if Nicole Kidman was not having a good enough week with her interview being posted on The Hollywood Gossip, now the love of her life is back in the free world.

Over the weekend, Keith Urban was let out of rehab and reunited with his wife of five months.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Celebrate

The couple had brunch on Sunday at the Polo Lounge in Los Angeles.

Urban had been in the in-patient rehabilitation program since October 19 and was expected to stay there for 35-40 days.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan and her half-hearted attempts to sober up, this crooner actually dedicated himself to the cause.

We're very proud of him for doing so. Others, such as the problematic Pete Doherty, may wish to follow suit.

This was not Urban's first stint in rehab.

In 1998, the singer checked into the Cumberland Heights treatment center in Nashville, seeking treatment for cocaine and alcohol addiction.

We do hope it was his last, however.

Otherwise, you just know Tom Cruise is gonna step in with some serious Scientology bulls$%t.

When Keith Urban, 39, took home the best male vocalist trophy at the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville on November 6 (Carrie Underwood took the female vocalist prize), pal Ronnie Dunn ran onstage to read a letter penned by the star: "I'm pained not being there with y'all tonight," it said.

Where was he, you ask?

T.H. Gossip has learned that, since he entered treatment for alcoholism on October 19, Nicole Kidman's husband of four months has been in an inpatient program at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, where celebs such as Johnny Cash and Anna Nicole Smith have gotten help.

THG NOTE: Whatever "help" Anna Nicole Smith got, it wasn't enough.

Keith is expected to be in rehab for 35-40 days, a source close to Kidman reports. During that time, he'll attend group therapy, lectures and spiritually focused programs (costs start at $21,000).

On November 5, Kidman, also 39, dropped by for a two-hour visit. No word on whether undercover Scientology operatives hired by ex-husband Tom Cruise were tailing her.

"They look forward to resuming their life together," says a source.

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.

Being married to a beautful, talented actress isn't enough to keep an addict off drugs or alcohol.

Such is the reality for country singer Keith Urban, who checked into a rehab center Thursday night. He was accompanied by his wife, Nicole Kidman.

Urban Outfitted

"I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me," Urban said in a statement. "One can never let one's 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."

Urban is just the latest celebrity to seek this sort of assistance. Mel Gibson's struggles with alcohol have been well-documented and comedian Robin Williams also sought rehab recently.

The statement added that all of Urban's immediate appearances promoting his forthcoming CD will be postponed.

Urban and Kidman were married on June 28 in Sydney, Australia, after meeting in January 2005. They've been affectionately dubbed "Kurban" by, well, us.

Nicole Kidman and new husband Keith Urban -- known affectionately to us here at the Gossip as Kurban -- spent the July 4 holiday with friends and family in Nashville, Tenn.

The newlyweds started off Independence Day by having a club gym opened up exclusively for them, then took a leisurely stroll (below) through Centennial Park in downtown Nashville, right across from the Vanderbilt University campus. Strolling hand-in-hand, the happy couple made sure to walk through The Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon.

Kidman and Urban go Australian

In other Kurban news, some mementos from their wedding in Australia are rumored to be on eBay, including a menu from the reception, a piece of wedding cake, the ceremony program and an engraved Tiffany desk clock.

Public Service Announcement From The Gossip: No matter how big a fan you might be of Nicole's acting and/or Keith's crooning, if you consider spending money on a piece of their wedding cake, you should start seeing a whole team of psychiatrists. Thank you.
