Nicole Kidman is said to be 'in shock’ following the death of her father Dr Anthony Kidman, who passed away following a fall in his Singapore hotel room.
The actress’s publicist, Wendy Day, confirmed the news to the Daily Mail Australia but didn’t reveal any further details about the prominent psychologist’s death.
“The family is in shock and is grieving... I think that some time and privacy is needed to deal with this shock and tragedy,” she said.
Dr Kidman was in Singapore visiting his daughter, Antonia, and his grandchildren when he suffered a fall in his hotel room, according to the Daily Mail.
Dr Kidman worked as a clinical psychologist at Royal North Shore Hospital and was a director of health psychology at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS)
A source at the hospital told News Corp Australia: “We don't know how to deal with this at the moment or how to digest the fact he's gone”.
Attila Brungs, Vice-Chancellor Professor at UTS, released a statement to express how much Dr Kidman had contributed during his 43 years of service.
“It is with great sadness that we learn of Dr Tony Kidman's sudden passing. During his 43 years at the University of Technology, Sydney, Tony has contributed greatly – as a colleague, as a researcher, and as a health practitioner,” he said.
“Tony will be missed by all at UTS. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.”
Our deepest sympathy goes to the Kidman family at this difficult time.
