Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta-Jones Have Separated, Rep Confirms
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have separated after 13 years of marriage, their rep confirmed today to Yahoo OMG!
Their separation made the cover of People, which reports that the split is due to stress from Douglas's battle with cancer and Zeta Jones's struggles with bipolar disorder.
"The stress has taken a toll on their marriage," a friend tells the magazine.
The couple decided to spend time apart soon after he came back from the Cannes Film Festival in May, where he was promoting his HBO movie, Behind the Candelabra.
The pair haven't been photographed together since April 22 and have reportedly been vacationing separately.
Douglas, 68, and Zeta-Jones, 43, have two children, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10. They marred in 2000 at a star-studded, lavish ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan.
A family friend says they're hoping they can work out their differences: "They want the best for their kids, no matter what happens."
