Keith Urban Checks Into Rehab

Keith Urban has checked himself into a rehabilitation treatment center, less than four months after the Grammy-winning country singer’s marriage to actress Nicole Kidman.

Urban released a statement Friday that said he entered rehab October 19th night with his wife by his side.

Urban, who turns 39 on October 26th, has publicly acknowledged a former addiction to cocaine.

“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.”

All immediate appearances for his forthcoming CD will be postponed. Love, Pain, & The Whole Crazy Thing was set for release November 7th.

Kidman and Urban, who were both raised in Australia, married on June 25 in Sydney. They then moved to Nashville, where Urban records.

Urban won a Grammy this year for best male country vocal performance for “You’ll Think of Me.”
