From their star-studded initial marriage to their renewed vows, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones seem to be one of the most solid marriages in celebrity land. Even when Michael Douglas was blaming cancer on oral sex, they seemed to be ready to stick by one another. As it turns out, that wasn’t quite the case. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones are reportedly separated. The two live in separate homes, have separate careers, and are apparently taking time apart to try to save their marriage.
“Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage,” said publicist Cece Yorke.
The couple married in 2000, which seems like forever ago, but have had lots of trouble recently. Zeta Jones has difficulties stemming to her bipolar disorder, and Michael Douglas has suffered multiple bouts with cancer. In addition to that, Douglas’s oldest son Cameron has spent a significant amount of time in jail (he’s in there now I believe) and that’s added to the strain on the family’s status. The two have been spotted separately at red carpet events and have even taken separate vacations with their two children.
Here’s hoping they can work it out, because they have been married forever in Hollywood terms and they have a pair of adorable children.
