Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones split

By Cassie Alsup. CREATED Aug 28, 2013

Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas are separated, People reports. The couple has been spending time apart for quite some time; vacationing separately, appearing at events alone and each taking some time with their children, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10.

The two have struggled in the past battling Douglas' throat cancer, and USA Today reports that "his comments about HPV possibly causing his cancer are said to have not gone over well with her."

Nothing has been filed, and People reported that a close friend to the family knows the two "want the best for their kids, no matter what happens."
