Look Away Keith: Nicole Reveals Secret Engagement To Lenny Kravitz!

Nicole Kidman engaged to Lenny Kravitz

Nicole Kidman has confirmed that her post Tom Cruise fling with edgy neo-soul singer Lenny Kravitz was a lot more serious than we were led to believe.

The star of the Oscar nominated Lion let slip in an interview with The Edit that she was in fact engaged to the 90s pin-up after meeting him in 2003.

Nicole, who has been married to country crooner Keith Urban since 2006, is now working with Lenny’s daughter Zoe in the TV adaptation of Australian author Liane Moriarty’s book, Big Little Lies.

“Well, I knew Zoe because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family! I love Lenny; he’s a great guy,” she tells The Edit.

It’s the first-time Nicole has addressed the persistent engagement rumours.

In a 2007 Vanity Fair interview, Nicole had revealed she was engaged to be wed to someone prior to her current husband, however she did not reveal their identity.

We don’t know why the relationship ended, but apparently the pair is still on good terms and are often photographed together with Keith at red carpet events.

The couple met after she rented a New York loft Lenny owned and he later penned a song titled Lady — reportedly about the award-winning actress.

During the interview, Nicole also opens up about the toll Big Little Lies took on her body and mind. The book tells the story of three women, each at a major crossroads in their lives.

“I was quite traumatised after [filming] because we would shoot [the violent scenes] repeatedly,” Nicole also tells The Edit.

“I was emotionally and physically traumatised. I’d come back and I’d need Keith to hold me, just to feel soothed. I think it worked on my psyche in a way that I didn’t quite realise.”

The usually demure Nicole, who plays Celeste in the HBO series, went so far as to throw a rock through her door after locking herself out.

“I couldn’t sleep and the next morning I got up and went for a run to try and get some of [Celeste’s] energy out,” she says.

“I came back and I’d left my key, I couldn’t get in the door. It’s a glass door, so I got a rock and I threw the rock through the door. I’d never done anything like that. And then I realised, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s how much I’m holding all this in, the anger, the pain.’”
