SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - Nicole Kidman's Australian publicist confirmed that the star of ``Eyes Wide Shut'' and ``Batman Forever'' suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, a Sydney newspaper reported Friday.

Kidman's publicist, Wendy Day, said, ``It is a private matter for Tom and Nicole to work out,'' The Daily Telegraph reported.

Day told the Australian Associated Press, ``I believe the story is out there and running. We can't deny the story.'' She declined further comment.

The Daily Telegraph also cited an unidentified Australian friend of Kidman as saying the star had the miscarriage shortly after her split with husband Tom Cruise.

Cruise filed for divorce last month in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences after 10 years of marriage. The couple separated in December, the filing said.

Kidman, 33, is believed to have miscarried at a Los Angeles clinic earlier this month.

It was first reported Thursday in the Star supermarket tabloid; Kidman's publicist in New York, Toby Fleischman, declined comment Thursday.

Contacted by The Daily Telegraph at her Sydney home, Kidman's mother declined comment.

Cruise and Kidman have two adopted children, Isabella, 8, and Conor, 6.
