Keith Urban in Australia During Leave From Rehab

Keith Urban is in Sydney, Australia, to visit his family during a holiday leave from a California rehabilitation treatment center for alcohol abuse. Urban flew Tuesday (Dec. 26) to Sydney, where he reunited with his wife, actress Nicole Kidman. This is Urban’s first visit to Australia since their wedding near Sydney in June. His parents reside in Australia. Urban voluntarily checked himself into the Betty Ford Center in Palm Springs, Calif., in October. Urban’s publicist, Paul Freundlich, said the leave from the center is a natural occurrence at this point in his treatment. The singer will return to the center following the holidays.
