Such sad news. According to the Mirror, it is reported that the time of his passing, “Dr Kidman was visiting Nicole’s younger sister Antonia who lives in Singapore with her husband Craig Marran and their six children.”
Nicole’s rep told HollywoodLife.com, “Nicole and her family are in shock by the sudden death of her father. She appreciates the outpouring of support and kindly requests privacy during this very difficult time. Thank you.”

Daily Mail Australia reports, “The Sydney psychologist is believed to have collapsed when he was inside the Wheelhouse restaurant at the Tanglin Club – a private hotel he had been staying at while visiting his daughter Antonia and six grandchildren during their school holidays.”
According to The Strait Times, “a spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force confirmed that it received a call at about 8.10 am on Friday requesting for medical assistance at 5 Stevens Road, where the club is located. When paramedics arrived shortly after, a few members of the public were already performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a Caucasian man in the restaurant.”
The outlet reports that Dr. Anthony passed away of an apparent heart attack.

The family was last spotted all together back in January 2014 in celebration of Anthony and his wife Janelle‘s 50th wedding anniversary.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nicole’s family during this difficult time.
