Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are taking a break

According to People, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have separated for a while.

The couple hasn’t been seen together since April 22. They have been spotted separate on the red carpet or on vacation with their children.

According to sources cited by the magazine, the pair needs to spend some time apart.

“They’re taking a break,” a source says.

The two have had their ups and down throughout their 13-year marriage.

In 2010 Douglas revealed that he had throat cancer and a year later Zeta-Jones found she suffered from bipolar disorder.

“The stress has taken a toll on their marriage,” a friend says.

The pair has two children, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10.

“They want the best for their kids, no matter what happens.”
