Nicole Kidman’s Publicist Swears She And Keith Urban Are Not Breaking A “Mandatory” Australian Quarantine
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban caught hell recently for flying from Nashville to Australia and avoiding the mandatory coronavirus quarantine of staying in a government-managed hotel. Instead of quarantining in a hotel, they quarantined in their mansion. People shook their heads at that because the government stated that the hotel quarantine is mandatory and very few exceptions will be allowed. Well, Nicole’s rep is denying that she and Keith got around the “mandatory” quarantine and claim total innocence! I don’t know… do we believe it? She wasn’t on a show called Big Little Truths…
Entertainment Tonight Canada says that Austalia’s ultra-strict protocols include a mandatory two-week stay in a hotel that is managed by the government. When Nicole and Keith flew into their homeland, they skipped the hotel and went straight to their home, which is 75 miles outside of Sydney.
New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian says that exemptions to the quarantine will only be granted “in very limited circumstances on grounds of health or compassion.” I guess they showed compassion by not forcing Nicole and Keith to sleep on some peasant-hotel mattress. But for real, the New South Wales health authorities actually did not comment to The Times when asked why Nicole and Keith and their kids were allowed to go home. Dannii Minogue and billionaire businessman Kerry Strokes were also given the same exception as Nicole and Keith.
Nicole’s publicist, Wendy Day, did comment though, and she said it was cool because they were (checks notes) paying for their own security?
“It’s absolute garbage. She is paying for all her own security and following all the rules, they are in isolation.”
And Wendy also reminded us that Nicole is back in Australia to film the Hulu series, Nine Perfect Strangers, which she’s going to start working on August 10. The budget for the limited-series is $100 million. Well, sure she’s a privileged actress who’s free to roam home while others are forced to share a hotel Wi-Fi connection with other people, but let’s look at the flip-side. The government doesn’t have to use tax dollars to take care of Nicole and Keith, and her show is making money for Australia. That’s more than Kylie Jenner gave them for a bushfire! So I guess what I’m saying is: on the echelon of rich assholes, The Kardashian/Jenners are still at the top.
