Nicole Kidman Discusses Keith Urban's Battle with Addiction
The 49-year-old country singer checked into rehab for a problem with alcohol abuse in 2007, just four months after he married Nicole, 49.
When asked by People what advice she would give others going through what she did, she advise loved ones of an addict “to get help. To put your hand up, to reach out. There is absolutely help out there. You can’t save somebody, they’ve got to save themselves.”
Nicole says that lesson “is a very big thing for people like me who go, ‘I can take care of you. I can do it.’” She realized that she wouldn’t be able to do it all by herself and “at some point, you just have to say, ‘I love you and I’m here when you decide to do the work. If you don’t, then that’s it.’”
