Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones Split Up!
13 years of marriage headed for divorce
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones were always kind of a weird couple, weren't they? The 68 year old Basic Instinct star and 43 year old Welsh beauty Catherine had a huge age gap, but managed to make it work - and have two children along the way.
Douglas met Zeta-Jones at a film festival in Deauville France in 1998 after he heard she had a thing for older men. He then reportedly went over (a little drunk) and offered to father her children. Smooth!
The pair have announced they are splitting, with their spokesperson saying they are "taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage."
No divorce papers have been filed yet, but the couple have been through a rough period over the last few years, with Zeta Jones seeking treatment for bipolar disorder, Douglas overcoming throat cancer and Douglas' son Cameron getting put in the clink for 5 years for possession of heroin and meth.
Good luck whatever happens, you crazy kids.
