Keith and Nicole's Pre-Nup Addiction Pact Revealed
October 23, 2006

Only "Extra" breaks news that is sure to have all of Nashville buzzing, as inside sources tell us Oscar winner Nicole Kidman is searching for a nanny.

"Extra" spotted the superstar beauty standing strong in Hollywood over the weekend, just hours after her country superstar husband Keith Urban checked into rehab.

On Monday night, confidents in Nashville revealed to us that Nicole has been interviewing a modern-day Mary Poppins. So does that mean the blonde beauty is expecting, or that Nic and Keith are looking to adopt?

A glowing Nicole didn't appear pregnant when she wowed the crowd in Rome last week, and earlier this month Nicole denied reports that she's expecting.

When we contacted Nicole's rep for comment, she responded, "Why would she hire a nanny?"

But on Monday night, the possible baby news only added to the drama for the superstar whose new hubby is battling his inner demons.

"Extra" has learned that Keith, whose new single, "Once in a Lifetime," is heating up the charts, just pulled out of his upcoming public appearances, including next month's Country Music Awards and all promotional appearances for his new album, "Love, Pain and The Whole Crazy Thing."

Keith was also forced to cancel his performance at Friday's star-studded 10th Anniversary Gala for Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, where fellow A-lister Carmen Electra told us, "I think anytime anyone is willing to get help for their situation, I think that's a positive thing."

The country superstar is currently getting help for a second time. In 1998, he entered a Nashville-area treatment center for cocaine addiction.

Less than a decade later, Keith's publicist confirmed to "Extra" that he's fighting a battle against the bottle.

But was Keith's struggle a factor before the marriage?

Reports say there is an addiction clause in the couple's pre-nup, stating that if Keith reverts to drug or alcohol abuse, Nicole owes him nothing.

While Urban's relapse shocked Nicole and his fans, the news wasn't surprising inside Promises Treatment Center in Malibu where many stars have sought treatment.

Richard Rogg of Malibu's Promises told "Extra," "Relapse is almost a part of the healing process."

A healing process that Keith has begun once again, but this time, with Nicole by his side.
