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.

    This terrible disease attacks every family. It doesn’t matter how wealthy and famous a person is, the pain is the same. Keith’s fans share his pain at this time.

    Bob Urban was a very unique and special man.
    Hugs and prayers to Keith’s mom Marienne, brother Shane and his family, and of course Keith, Nicole and their girls.
    Too many people have lost family and friends to cancer.

    There’s an article and photos today of Keith flying to Australia for his father’s funeral. He’s alone; no Nicole nor the girls. A little over a year ago Nicole’s father died. Keith was doing Idol in the states when it happened, but he left the show immediately to be with her, and was a pallbearer. As she has said so often, he literally carried her through the ordeal.
    Nicole’s expressed that she just wanted to hold and hug Keith since his dad’s death; however, has she? If one of Nicole/Keith’s fans has a legitimate answer to what’s going on, please share.
    One other thing, don’t try to make a comment about Keith on Daily Mail. The section was closed immediately. As will this, right Yahoo?:
