Catherine Zeta-Jones walking away, moving on from Michael Douglas rumor debunked

Catherine Zeta-Jones walked away from her self-absorbed husband, Michael Douglas, according to a report.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have been married for two decades already. However, their marriage has become a favorite among tabloids due to their 25-year age gap. One outlet claimed she walked away from him.

Catherine Zeta-Jones allegedly walked away from Michael

Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, and Michael Douglas‘, 76, marriage was over, according to Star last February. The outlet claimed that Zeta-Jones departed from their home after his father, Kirk, passed away.

Catherine was miserable for a long time – years, even – but she kept it together for their kids’ and Kirk’s sake. Kirk’s gone, and the kids are grown, so there’s just no use pretending any more,” an anonymous source told the outlet.

The tabloid also alleged that Zeta-Jone only kept her marriage to Douglas because she didn’t want to let Kirk down. He was reportedly so big on family and tradition. When her father-in-law was gone, she wanted to move on from the unhappy situation, the bogus tipster added.

The insider also called Zeta-Jones’ husband “self-absorbed.” Aside from moving on, the Entrapment star was allegedly ready to date again.

Rumor debunked

Gossip Cop examined the claim and debunked it, even calling it ridiculous and disgusting. It found the report distasteful for alleging that Catherine Zeta-Jones deserted her husband after he grieved over his dad’s passing.

Zeta-Jones’ spokesperson also denied the report and said it “couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Star has a reputation for publishing false reports about the couple, the rumor-debunking site noted. In 2020, it claimed that the couple was trying to save their marriage after Kirk’s death. In 0219, it also alleged that they were divorcing amid the sexual allegations against Douglas.

Apparently, all those claims are false because Zeta-Jones and Douglas are still together.

The couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary

Despite the various rumors surrounding Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas’ marriage, the couple made it clear that they are still happy with each other and are still together. In November, The Legend of Zorro star shared a video of her with her husband featuring photos of them over the years to mark their 20th wedding anniversary on Instagram.

In the clip, Zeta-Jones greeted her husband by writing, “Happy Anniversary Michael, 20 Years!” She also included a short caption on her post describing their wedding day as an “amazing magical night.” She sent her love to her husband and thanked him for love and laughter.
