According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the famous couple got in an altercation with another patron at the Sydney Opera House which resulted in him being escorted out.
Kidman and Urban attended a showing of The Merry Widow last month, and at the end of the show they both rose to give a standing ovation to the cast. Apparently, the gentleman seated behind them took issue with the fact they were on their feet, and tried to tell them off.
When the famous couple didn’t sit down, he then swatted Kidman with his show program. Urban accused the man of assaulting his wife, and his security guards quickly came and whisked the pair away.
Onlookers have reported that the accused swatter was then escorted out by Opera House security. Apparently Kidman was very upset by the altercation, and the police were called.
Police media have confirmed that two officers were called to the opera that night.
“Police have been told a 53-year-old man and a 67-year-old man were both attending the entertainment centre when an argument broke out. Officers spoke to both men and no further action was taken,” NSW Police said in a statement.
Kidman and Urban were taken out through the stage door, and didn’t press charges.
