    My heart goes out to Nicole and her family. What an absolute tremendous loss for them and all of Mr. Kidman’s friends and loved ones.

    Deepest condolences.

    So sorry to hear the news. RIP Dr. Kidman.

  • Sarah G

    RIP Dr. Kidman, You helped so many trying to get through stressful times in their lives and raised two beautiful daughters.

    As sad as it is, I’m glad that he had spent the last few weeks of his life visiting Nicole Keith and the girls and then went to see Antonia and her kids. Many people don’t get that kind of family time.

    First I read he fell, now reports are saying he suffered a heart attack after a morning run.

    My condolences to Nicole and her family. It’s always devastating losing a parent, regardless of their age.

    His eight grandchildren now have a guardian angel. Rest in peace sir.

  • Munroe

    Apologies, that should be ten grandchildren. I did not realize Antonia Kidman had six babies.

  • Guest

    @Munroe 8 is right, Nicole was never a mother for Connor and Isabella.

  • One

    Tragic and sudden…. and so devastating. He didn’t suffer, so that’s good. No age on Mr. Kidman?

  • Cate

    Rest in peace.. How awful for the whole family especially as it appears to be sudden. My sympathies and condolences to all his loved ones.

  • tulip

    @One: He was 76. Not young but he certainly had some good years left. He loved his family. It must have been a real joy to be a Granddad to 10. I lost a grandparent when I was around Sunday Rose’s age. It was tough but they are a great family and they will get through it together.

    One thing I didn’t know is that Dr. Kidman, like Nicole, was given an Order of Australia, one of the country’s highest honors. He will be missed.

  • curious

    Travelling alone for over a month. An “unnatural death”. Where was his wife?

  • rossy

    @Guest & @Munroe

    Conner & Isabelle chose Scientology & Tom OVER Nicole & her family because they’re NOT into that. During her marriage to Tom & after they adopted Conner & Isabelle was to expose them to different religions & when they were old enough to decide… Tom wanted them raised Scientologists, filed for divorce & told the kids to choose.
    They did. They chose Tom & left – Nicole tried to see them, but they were uncomfortable around her BECAUSE she wasn’t a Scientologist. So, Nicole did NOT to back to Tom but moved on to a great life with her new hubby & children.
    My heartfelt condolences go out to her & her family at this time of sorrow.

    @ Curious aka THE CRAZY ONE–Can’t you even give it a rest at a time like this ??? None of your business whether he traveled alone or not. Yes Nicole has been a mother to her children with Tom. Sad hearing Nicoles father died, Nicole was so close to her father.

  • Reality check

    The old man was nearly 80.

  • duh

    Rest in peace Dr. Kidman. As before and always, this family will go on regardless of an unhinged fan’s sick fantasies.

  • One

    76 is certainly not old. Many people live well into their 80′s. What a tragic loss. Even tragic situations don’t change the evil nature of some people. It really speaks volumes about their true character. Ugly people.

  • Jill

    Oh, the Robin Williams death really showed how sick some people are. The internet brings us into those sick minds. Yuck!

    @Jill–You are so right. It is unbelievable. We have a real Nicole Kidman hater known as The Crazy One that follows every thing Nicole and her family do. A very nasty, nasty person with a deep mental problem.
