AceShowbiz - Nicole Kidman was reportedly getting flirty with Dev Patel while promoting their film "Lion" at the Palm Springs International Film Festival earlier this month, and it made her husband Keith Urban angry. According to a new In Touch report, the Oscar winner and her co-star "couldn't keep their hands off each other," and it's "a real slap in the face" to her musician hubby.
"They literally couldn't keep their hands off each other," an insider revealed to the publication. The insider went on noting that Kidman and the 26-year-old British-born actor "entered the room holding hands, giggling and whispering into each other's ear," adding that the mother of four "looked like she was in love!"
Festival attendees allegedly even thought that Kidman and Urban had split after seeing her and Patel inseparable. "People were whispering about how they didn't know about the split," said the source. "Dev was holding her around the waist much of the evening, and she was touching his face." The alleged insider added that their behavior was "a real slap in the face" to Urban, who's "got to be livid."
However, fans do not have to worry about the "Lion" co-stars' closeness, as all the claims above are "not true." Citing a reliable source, Gossip Cop can assure us that "Kidman and Patel weren't ever inappropriately flirty with each other." The source goes on revealing that Urban's not concerned with his wife's professional relationship with her co-star.
