It turns out that Michael Douglas’s admission that he got throat cancer because of oral sex was the last straw for Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The Hollywood couple announced yesterday that they are splitting up after 13 years to “evaluate and work on their marriage.” Catherine is said to have wanted the split after Michael said his cancer was caused by the HPV virus, which is spread through oral sexual contact. But the 68-year-old star didn’t make it clear that he got the virus before he met his wife, which is awkward. The Sun says, “From there, things only got worse.” You don’t say.
Douglas has been fighting cancer, which he beat in 2011. Catherine has bipolar II disorder, which has caused her to go to rehab twice for depression, most recently in May. At the end of that month, the couple decided to break up, even though it seems like they had been living separate lives for a while.
A person who lives near their Bedford, Connecticut, mansion told The Sun, “We haven’t seen much of Michael or Catherine here for about 18 months.” His friends are mostly in New York. He likes to be in the city, while she likes to ride horses and play golf. They are very different.’
Michael, who is married to Catherine and has two kids named Dylan and Carys, is taking a vacation alone in Europe right now. He was seen yesterday on a friend’s yacht off the coast of Sardinia, looking thoughtful before going to France for the Deauville Film Festival, where he met Catherine for the first time in 1998.
Michael had recently said, “True love takes work.” This made me think that their problems had only made their relationship stronger. Love is a powerful feeling that comes from the core of your being, but it needs to be cared for. I’ve learned that you can’t take love for granted as you get older. You take care of it, feed it, and it grows. After the first physical and emotional stages, it gets deeper.
Catherine is thought to be staying with the couple’s children in New York.
