Michael Douglas and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones have separated and have been on a “break” for some time. Douglas has been in Sardinia with their children while Zeta-Jones has been staying in New York.
Douglas, 68 and Zeta-Jones, 43 married in 2000 and have two children together, Dylan, 13 and Cays, 10. An insider close to the situation revealed that even though the couple have separated, they have not yet begun any paperwork to make the split official.
A source stated that, “They want the best for their kids, no matter what happens.” The last time the couple were seen together was at an event in New York on April 22.
The power couple have had to deal with a number of problems over the last several years. Michael Douglas has dealt with stage IV throat cancer and the harsh treatment for it. Catherine Zeta-Jones has received ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder.
A source close to the situation said that “the stress has taken a toll on their marriage. Michael Douglas going on record saying it was “oral sex” that caused his cancer probably didn’t help matters any.
