Nicole Kidman in shock after her father dies in Singapore

​Nicole Kidman is said to be in shock after the sudden death of her 75-year-old father in Singapore, said her publicist.

The Australian actress' husband Keith Urban, who cancelled a concert in the US, also said the couple was in a "deep state of grief" in a Facebook post.




Kidman's publicist Leslee Dart said the Hollywood actress and her family were "in shock by the sudden death of her father".

In a statement to the Australian Associated Press, Dart also said: "She appreciates the outpouring of support and kindly requests privacy during this very difficult time."

Antony Kidman, who was a clinical psychologist, was believed to have collapsed at a restaurant at the Tanglin Club, where he was staying while visiting his daughter Antonio and her family, who live in Singapore.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said paramedics received a call at about 8.10am on Friday requesting medical assistance at the club and that members of public and SCDF performed CPR on him but he was pronounced dead at Tan Tock Seng hospital.
