Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas Divorce and Custody Fight - Catherine Doesn't Trust Michael to Care for Their Kids

It has been rumored for the last few weeks that Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas’s marriage is completely in the toilet with a divorce announcement due at any moment. The couple reportedly tried a trial separation last year and never really bothered to fix the issues in their marriage. Michael supposedly can handle his wife’s bipolar disorder but he can’t stomach her heavy drinking which ultimately triggers manic episodes. The actor has made peace with the fact that this divorce will cost him millions but he is determined to maintain a good relationship with his kids and intends to fight tooth and nail for primary custody.

According to the Aug. 26th print edition of National Enquirer, Catherine has every intention of matching Michael’s fight. When she recently checked herself into a hospital to get her bipolar condition under control she opted to fly her mother in from Wales rather than leave Michael with the kids alone. She simply didn’t trust him to put the kids first for even a few short weeks and instead enlisted the help of her mother.

In fact Catherine’s mother has relocated to a home a few miles from Catherine and Michael’s NY mansion in order to help her daughter handle the children while things get messy for the couple. Michael does not get along with Pat but tolerates her because fighting Catherine on the issue of her mother is always a losing battle. Catherine is counting on enlisting her mothers help to land primary custody of her children and she intends to use Michael’s busy schedule against him in custody court.

    Hopefully they will share custody and one of these hollywood personalities will have some common sense. I don’t think Mike is any prize, but even bad actors can be great parents. Give temporary custody to her mother in the beginning. She knows them both very well – which is exactly what they all need. A reality check is good. .
