Keith Urban says words can’t describe the lessons he and his wife have learned from his recent stint in rehab.
“I can’t really quantify it, because it’s not a soundbite what we’ve learned,” the singer said about himself and Nicole Kidman on Friday’s Today show. “But,” he added, “it’s really profound.”
Today‘s Matt Lauer, noting that things had looked good for Urban before he headed to rehab in October — he’d married Kidman just four months earlier, and was about to release a new album — asked why he later said life had been “unmanageable.”
“This disease of addiction, you know, it’s nothing to do with contentedness and happiness, because I had all of that,” replied Urban, who has admitted to a past addiction to cocaine and previously underwent rehab in 1998. “But I wasn’t doing what I should be doing to maintain the road I was on previously, so it was a big wake-up call to get back on the road.”
Perhaps the statements made by Amanda Wyatt played a role in Keith’s troubles, as well.
But not according to Urban, who just said “it was just time. I could see where it was going. It was coming at me in a way that was very apparent that this is not me, you know what I mean? I think anybody out there who is in this situation recognizes it’s not me, it’s something else.”
Fortunately for fans, Kurban has survived. They’re a strong pairing.
No naked picture of Cisco Adler is gonna break this couple up.
