Such an outright lie.. by USA today.
Amazing!
Anyone who watched the awards knows Keith was seated right beside Nicole..he was only backstage for the red carpet....
I will not ever read this publication again... they have lost respect in my book...
if any respect was ever deemed necessary?

I guess in a way he did have a low profile at the oscars. IT would be rude not to invite him on the red carpet being NK husband but obviously NK KU decided against it.

If my husband was overlooked for such an occasion I wouldn't go myself. Imagine a family wedding and not inviting partners. No I think for some reason NK KU decided not to do the red carpet ceremony together. As you say you saw him sitting right beside her in the audience so this article has gotten that fact wrong.

the 'distortion' is annoying - creative use of words to be provocative. the article states he was not seen 'prominently'- and they should have said he watched the red carpet from a suite - not 'the show'- i also saw a pic with them seated together.

too many journos - too little meat.

i can imagine that keith could have refused to walk the carpet like a handbag to NK - i would too if I were him - can you imagine the sick questions that would have been thrown their way - vultures!

keith strikes me as someone who probably hates the hollywood BS, but is there to support his wife.

have a good day HOPE & TRUTH,

LOVE!

Your choice of words there are right on Yvonne- quite good I think- "like a handbag to Nicole"- I do agree he did the right thing by not being on the carpet with her and also about the questions that would have accosted them!!!
I do believe the Hollywood scene is not his favorite, since he is a musician not an actor- and that night was all about Nicole and her friends...
were he nominated for something at the Awards he would certainly have been present on the carpet.
As a celebrity himself, and in light of what has transpired in the last five months, the couple most certainly would have been innundated with all sorts of invasive questions- it is not the same as a celebrity or director/producer etc with their spouse who is not a celebrity in their own right... of course those spouses can smile and be "pretty" and be left alone...

have a great day!

Lou716, you are so right. That is exactly why he did not walk the red carpet. After all he has been thru these last couple months I think he needed as you so beautifully put it ...to let her "shine"....best regards to you my friend. Hope all is well!....keep the faith alive!...Keithlover!!!

Strangely enough media in Queensland have referred to Nicole as Keith's handbag ???

I also believe Keith and Nicole prefer not to take the limelight off each other when it comes to the important functions concerning their individual careers ... They support each other from a distance and stand by in the wings ... Nicole did speak about media scrutiny and speculation on the red carpet ...

It did appear that Nicole and Keith disappeared prior to the conclusion of the Oscar's ... Perhaps taking some time to say hello to Nicole's adopted children, before they attended the same party as their father Tom and his wife Katie ...

Interesting ???

Colleen, Good day to you! I agree with you reason as to why they seemed to have disappeared and to the fact that They support each other from a distance . It just makes sense to me. I for one would certainly NOT mind being called "Keith's Handbag" I would not mind being THAT close to his hand or anything else for that matter...LOL...LOL! Best wishes to you dear Colleen. Hope you have a great day!...and...Keep the faith alive!......Keithlover!!!xoxox oxoxoxo

Referring anyone as anybody elses handbag is very degrading.

I myself would have loved to had my husband be with me on the red carpet. Afterall it was all about the actors I don't think KU would have overshadowed NK he would have been showing his support.

I think the issue would be the inappropriate questions by the media about KU personal recovery and also about their own recovery and ongoing recovery as a couple.

Remember it is still early days for these two in a sense their relationship would need to start all over.

Truth:

If you have noticed, the media itself is very degrading...old Hollywood is gone. No more privacy-
and the tabloids of which Nic and Keith have both said they DO NOT read, continue publishing trash... trash and lies sell... people love gossip and want to read about every detail- even lies.
They lie- stretchs truths- tell tales with no truth, some truth, and even a mere hint at truth; then tales of no truth or reason whatsoever...

We as fans should not be questioning why who or whom was on the red carpet- who really cares? THEY have their reasons. Sometimes trying to go too far into interpreting the whys or wherefores may make one crazy... let it be...I for one think it is their business what they do, whether on the carpet, in the audience, at the afterparty or in their residence(s)- in whatever city they see fit.

The couple is together, they love one another, and until Keith Urban says its over, it isn't ...

I believe in love and want to see them happy.

A handbag indeed ...

I certainly let the journalist know how I felt about the reference ... But, unfortunately it's open slather where the rich, famous and infamous are concerned ... No use complaining about something if you aren't willing to back it up ... The media are seemingly more sympathetic and complimentary where Nicole and Keith are concerned lately ... Not before time ...

This week's New Idea has them featured ... Nicole's movie, Keith's concert ... Home for Easter too apparently with Nicole's children joining them and their families, downunder ... Now, isn't that nice news ...

It's time for everyone to move on from the mad, sad times and enjoy the glad times, come what may ...

Also, the local news in North Queensland had Sydney's channel 7 weather reporter in Mackay this morning for the impending cyclone off our coastline ... Many locals congregated in the street to welcome the news team and guess what ... There must be more Keith Urban fans than we think ... A huge KU poster featured front and centre ... Looks like I'd better get organised because before I and we know it Keith Urban will be at our doors ...

Cheers ... Colleen

Hi Hope,

I thought this was the topic on the thread the speculation why (red carpet )

Don't get me wrong I wish them all the best but my god if my husband went into rehab 4 months into the marriage I would be shattered and also be questioning a lot of things.

A healthy relationship does not involve drugs or alcohol-this is the reality.As I have mentioned before it doesn't matter how much you love someone you cannot control their behaviour.

I honestly hope KU has learnt the skills in Betty Ford to avoid "temptation all around". Ultimately it is up to him.

Thanks

I totally understand what you mean here.. for those of us that remember, when Nic announced their engagement- Keith hit the back door...
I believe he knew he needed to get his priorities straight- before marriage-
at the time they discussed for a short time whether this was right timing( the date)- probably ( guessing here) since he felt he needed to work on himself, prior to the marriage- which he was open about with Nic...
Of course if I were Nic( wow- would that be nice- Keith- umm) as a female, I also understand how she felt when he decided it was time for rehab, 4 months into their marriage, but she also understood this was best for the both of them in the long haul...
Having had an alcoholic for a father who worked all his life, and having a husband who is a recovering alcoholic- it is not always about the two of you as a couple. Certainly, dad was an alcoholic before we came along; he worked every day and drank weekends... and hubby worked everyday and drank nights prior to meeting me...
Sometimes one or the other has the issues and the spouse has to stand by them and support and understand, as Nic is clearly doing...
Hugs Truth!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Lane,

Well, whatever was their choosing for whatever reason, the few glimses shown of Keith and Nicole together at the ceremony appeared as if Keith at least was enjoying the moment ... smiling and clapping along too and as you said looking decidedly handsome ...

Although Tom had appeared to have had a recent visit to his hairdresser, I thought the style was badly cut and slightly old-fashioned ... I did love the colour of Katies dress, she does seem to be a very sincere and sensitive girl and deserves a special applaud of her own, taking on Tom along with his responsibilities and film star status ...

The video aired on our news from the Vanity Fair party showed Keith flashing his wife a quite besotted glance and smiling at her with such pride ...

I think Keith has explained himself well enough and the reasons why his wife has stayed by his side more than sufficient ... It's time for him and Nicole to be allowed to put this phase in the past, so that they can make more prosperous steps forward ... Here's to wishing them well ...

Just listening to our televison video hits with a special on Billy Thorpe (who passed away this week) singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" ... Billy's memorial service will be shown this afternoon from the Sydney Entertainment Centre ... Such a sad day in Australian music as Billy Thorpe's career was five decades long and he to was someone with the love of music and diehard spirit just like Keith Urban ...

Keith and Nicole could do with the blessings and the absolute unknown adventure that could be over their rainbow ...

Have a great day Lane ... Colleen

Well George, it's all about choices ... The do or don't kind ...

Most of us on the Keith Urban News forum have an affinity with Keith Urban, his music, his life or his wife ...

You obviously missed that point when logging on ...

May your day be fill your Killer instinct ...
