Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones are not separated, nor is the couple getting a divorce, the New York Post reported on Feb. 20. Though another not so reliable news source blasted the supposed news of a Douglas/Zeta-Jones split on its cover this week, both Michael and Catherine deny the rumor.
A representative for Michael Douglas told the New York Post’s Page Six that the story is “not true.” A representative for Catherine Zeta-Jones shut down the claim, saying any divorce rumors are “absolutely untrue.”
Michael Douglas, famous for roles in many top grossing Hollywood movies such as “Romancing the Stone,” “Fatal Attraction,” “Wall Street,” “Basic Instinct” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” and his Welsh-born wife Catherine Zeta-Jones were seen walking the red carpet on Jan. 31 at the New York premiere of Zeta-Jones new movie, “Side Effects.”
In the past, Catherine Zeta-Jones has made it clear that divorce is not an option for the Oscar-winning duo, saying, “I find divorces repulsive. I will never get divorced.”
In March 1977 a 32-year old Michael Douglas married 19-year-old Diandra Luker. Michael and Diandra have one son, Cameron, 34, who is currently serving a 10 year prison sentence for drug possession with intent to distribute.
Though Diandra and Michael separated in 1995, their divorce was not final until 2000. Diandra received a $45 million settlement. That same year Michael Douglas married Catherine Zeta-Jones in a lavish ceremony on Nov. 18.
Douglas, 68, and Zeta-Jones, 43, married for 12 years, have two children, Dylan, born August 8, 2000 and Carys, born April 20, 2003. Michael Douglas is the oldest son of Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas and his first wife Diana Dill.
