Keith Urban Blamed Paps for Accident

Nicole Kidman's hubby, Keith Urban was on his merry way to an AA meeting Down Under, when he was forced to drop his motorcycle to the pavement. He says that the maneuver was a direct result of paparazzi chasing him.

"Today's incident was the result of one person's desire to do his job and my desire to maintain my privacy," he said through his U.S. publicist, Paul Freundlich.

"Some have already attempted to inflate the facts, but the reality is this: While out riding to an AA meeting, a time when my privacy is especially important to me, I felt myself being pursued. I sped up, and, in an effort to elude an oncoming car which was making an illegal u-turn, saw no choice but to drop my bike," said Urban.

"In actual fact, my pursuer came to my assistance, without taking photos, and helped me from the road. I returned home, got my car and continued on my way," he concluded.

Witnesses said that the country crooner wasn't hurt after the accident, but definitely shaken up.
