HONG KONG — Dr. Antony Kidman, father of actress Nicole Kidman, died unexpectedly on Friday in Singapore.
He was in the country on a visit to his other daughter Antonia.
Singapore’s Civil Defence Force received a call for help from Tanglin Club shortly after 8 a.m. local time and applied cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. He was pronounced dead shortly before 10 a.m. at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

The Kidman family is “in shock and is grieving” following the sudden death of Antony, said Nicole Kidman’s publicist and long-time friend Wendy Day.
Dr. Kidman was a clinical psychologist and director of the health psychology unit at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital. He is also survived by his wife Janelle (pictured).
