In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael Douglas spoke of his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones and her struggle with bi-polar II. For Douglas her battle has added to his list of difficulties. He said; “My oldest son is in federal prison, my ex-wife is suing me, and I got cancer. It’s kind of hard for the wife to say, ‘I’m depressed.’”
His son is Cameron Douglas who was sentenced to five years in prison for selling drugs. His ex-wife, who has sued him multiple times, is suing him yet again for earnings from the film Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
It appears that even successful and wealthy power couples have problems.
