Speculation arose that Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were headed towards splitsville this morning (August 28), and now there is proof behind the claim.

A rep for the 68-year-old actor told The Mirror, “Michael and Catherine are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage. There is no further comment.”

After 13 years of marriage, insiders confirmed the stress from Catherine’s bi-polar disorder and Michael’s cancer took a toll on their relationship.

Another source told People magazine that the pair is “taking a break. They want the best for their kids no matter what happens.”

Michael is currently taking a vacation in Sardinia alone, while Catherine remains in New York City.

The pair has not been seen publically together since their red carpet appearance for the 40th Annual Chaplin Award Gala back on April 22.

According to reports, they have not sought out legal action for their separation.
