Keith Urban's Dad Dies After Long Battle with Cancer

Keith Urban‘s father Robert has passed away after a long battle with cancer.

“I’ve been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that [Nicole Kidman] and I, and our family, have received since my Dad’s passing on Saturday night,” the 48-year-old country star said in a statement (via Us Weekly). “His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace.”

“My dad’s love of country music and America set me on my life’s journey, and shaped so much of who I am today,” Keith added. “Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers.”

The sad news comes just days after Keith revealed his dad was in hospice care.

Our thoughts are with Keith, Nicole, and their entire family during this time.
