Well, it looks like another Hollywood power couple is biting the dust as sources say that Hollywood royalty Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are calling it quits after 13 years of marriage.  Michael is a scion of the immensely powerful Douglas family which includes his father, legendary Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas, and Catherine Zeta-Jones is of Welsh extraction.  The duo’s marriage was seen as one of the most stable in Hollywood and produced two children, Dylan Micahel who is 13 and Carys Zeta who is 10.

Michael and Catherine began dating in March of 1999 and were married on November 18, 2000 despite the 25-year age difference between them.  The two reportedly first met in Deauville, France where Douglas used the line “I want to father your children.”  They even renewed their vows in 2010 on the 10th anniversary of their wedding with Michael reportedly in tears.

Douglas has most recently survived a throat cancer scare in 2010 for which he underwent chemotherapy and Zeta-Jones was diagnosed as bi-polar earlier this year.  The cancer seemed to take a toll on the couple’s relationship with Zeta-Jones telling Stella magazine “I wasn’t as strong as I thought I could have been. I look back and I can’t believe the strength he had…“.  Michael is reportedly fed up with the marriage although Catherine seems to be fighting dissolution with the couple not having been seen together in public for months.

Things could get ugly as the married couple will most probably head to court to determine how their reported $300 million fortune should be split. Reps for the couple had no comment when reached.
