Less than four months after his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman, country singer Keith Urban has checked himself into a rehabilitation treatment center.

Urban released a statement today that said he entered rehab Thursday night with his wife by his side.

"I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me," Urban said in the statement.

Urban has publicly acknowledged a former addiction to cocaine.

"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."

All immediate appearances and his forthcoming CD will be postponed. "Love, Pain, & the whole crazy thing" was set for release Nov. 7.

Kidman and Urban, both raised in Australia, married on June 25 in Sydney. They then moved to Nashville, where Urban records.

Urban won a Grammy this year for best male country vocal performance for "You'll Think of Me."
