Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones Divorce: Legal Negotiations Proceed as Catherine Wants Custody But Michael Just Wants Out

Is Catherine Zeta-Jones going to divorce Michael Douglas? The rumors of a divorce for the famous Hollywood couple have been circulating for some time now, but new reports state that Catherine and Michael may be backing down after thinking of their family and children.

A source tells Grazia, “Divorce would be the final straw. It would be too damaging for the children and a strain on both of them emotionally and health wise.” 

Catherine has previously stated that she finds divorces ‘repulsive’, so that could have also played a factor in her staying with Michael. If the rumors are true, they’re both fighting consistently and have been living apart for a while, but she could be insisting that they stay together out of tradition and a sense of loyalty to their children. Some families are able to weather divorce gracefully, but I have a feeling that Catherine and Michael would not necessarily be one of them. We already know that Michael can’t control what he’s saying, especially with the whole oral sex controversy that he caused while promoting Behind the Candelabra.

But the fact that Catherine stayed with him after that speaks a lot about her character, or her insecurity…. She’s willing to compromise and deal with certain behavior, and she wants to stick it out for the sake of her children. And who knows, maybe she genuinely still loves Michael, and doesn’t want to leave him when his health is still precarious.

What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
