Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban reunited in Sydney
on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean Urban is out of rehab, his rep says.
"Keith is on a leave in Australia to be with his family during the holidays," Urban's publicist, Paul Freundlich, tells the Associated Press. "This is a natural occurrence at this point in his treatment. He will continue with his rehab upon his return."
The couple were photographed outside the Sydney offices of United International Pictures – their first appearance in public together since Urban checked into rehab
Urban flew into Sydney on Tuesday, Australian Associated Press reported.
This visit marks Urban's first time in Australia since he married Kidman
in a lavish Sydney wedding in June. The couple, both 39, have been based mainly in Nashville, Tenn.
The two also shared a brief reunion
in Los Angeles earlier this month.
