Is Keith Urban Moving To New York City?

Is Keith Urban making a move from Nashville to New York City?

Australia’s Women’s Day magazine is reporting that the country singer is “interested” in buying a $50 million townhouse that was once home to Michael Jackson. 

The report quoted unnamed sources as saying Urban’s wife, actress Nicole Kidman, is anxious to work on Broadway and in television so New York is a better fit than Nashville. Also, the couple reportedly wants a better education for their daughters.

“It has some of the top schools in the country and they think their girls would really benefit from moving to the Big Apple now they’re getting a bit older,” the magazine quoted a source as saying.

Of course, some media outlets have already picked up the story and are claiming Urban has already bought the NYC mansion. But, the New York Post reported that the 12,745-square-foot home is still on the market.

Built in 1898, it has 16 rooms, including seven bedrooms, and boasts an oak staircase, 10 fireplaces, and an outdoor space.
