Michael Douglas Proceeds With Divorce Due To Catherine Zeta-Jones Alleged Drinking Problem and Uncontrolled Mental Illness

Catherine Zeta-Jones has in the past joked about her huge closet in her Bedford, NY mansion. It’s a huge secret room that has doubled as a safe place for her. She has seemed to kid about hiding from her husband, Michael Douglas in that closet but now we’re hearing that it’s no joke! According to the Aug. 12th print edition of National Enquirer, Catherine would stop taking her meds for her bipolar illness and then retreat to her safe haven when her manic episodes and consequent anxiety would kick in. She would also lock Michael out.

That in itself has caused a huge problem because Michael supposedly cares very deeply for his wife and he would absolutely panic when he couldn’t get to her. At this point the actor has stopped feeling like a prisoner to Catherine’s mental illness and is ready to proceed with a divorce no matter what state she is in mentally.

Apparently the couple had a trial separation last year and while they are technically back together they are rarely ever under the same roof. In fact the last time that they were photographed together was late April, only lending credibility to the divorce talk. Sources close to the couple say that Michael has spent years walking on eggshells, catering to his wife’s needs but he is at his breaking point. The actor just can’t pretend any more. He understands that her bipolar illness makes things tricky but supposedly Catherine’s drinking problem works as a catalyst to bring on an episode and it all just keeps going in a vicious circle- one that Michael is ready to step away from.

  4. […] After fourteen years of marriage it seems that Michael and Catherine have gotten to a point where they truly bring out the worst in each other. She fears that all of that time apart is now due to his philandering ways, why makes her insecure. Catherine’s insecurity leads to heavy drinking which triggers manic episodes and well – you do the math. She was released a few months ago from an inpatient facility and has been very open about her battle with bipolar disorder. Ironically, Michael can handle that just fine, it’s his wives heavy drinking that actually chases him away. […]

    The real story here is that this story is far more applicable to Gwyneth and Chris than Catherine and Michael.
