Country superstar Keith Urban has released a statement announcing that he voluntarily admitted himself to a rehabilitation center last night (Thursday, October 19), with his actresss wife Nicole Kidman accompanying him.

"I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me," Urban's statement reads. "One can never let one's guard down on recovery and I'm afraid that I have. With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family, and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome."

The press release did not make it clear what type of addiction Urban is seeking treatment to overcome. However, it did say that as a result of his treatment, all promotional appearance and tour dates surrounding the release of his new album, Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing, will be postponed.
