Nicole Kidman Alcoholic Husband

Nicole Kidman has turned to a top psychologist to help deal with her husband's alcohol problems - her dad.

The 'Moulin Rouge' actress has reportedly been having lengthy phone conversations with her father, Dr Anthony Kidman, ever since country singer Keith Urban checked into a Nashville alcohol rehab centre last Thursday (19.10.06).

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Nicole's dad is getting her through it with a mix of professional advice, fatherly guidance and Catholic beliefs. Dr Anthony and his wife Janelle are expected to fly to the USA this week to be by their daughter's side."

Keith - who married the 'Stepford Wives' actress in Australia in June - expressed deep regret for the upset his troubles have caused his wife and family.

He said in a statement: "I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me.

"With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome."
