Nicole Kidman is reportedly going through a "rocky patch" with husband Keith Urban.

The Oscar-winning actress and her country singer beau have been married for eight years, but recently have been spending long periods of time apart due to their individual work schedules. A source close to the Australian believes she is finding the current situation hard.

"Keith and Nicole fall out a lot. He's always away and blames some of their problems on Nicole, saying she can be difficult," the insider revealed to British magazine Closer. "Nicole has found it tough on her own for the past few months and thinks Keith has been distant."
