Catherine Zeta-Jones Checks Into Mental Health Facility
With husband Michael Douglas on the mend after completing treatment for throat cancer, Catherine Zeta-Jones has found herself in need of some expert care.
Gossip Cop reports that the actress has checked herself into a mental health facility.
“After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder,” her rep confirms.
In addition to her duties as an actress and mother, Zeta-Jones has dealt with more than enough stress in the past few years to merit some much-needed time off and TLC.
In 2010, Zeta-Jones” stepson, Cameron Douglas, was sentenced to five years in prison for drug-related charges, and only four months later, her actor husband was diagnosed with cancer. In between the devastating events, Michael Douglas was also sued by his ex-wife, Diandra, who claimed she was entitled to 50 percent of the profits from his film “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”
Sources report, “Catherine had a lot of trouble coping [with Douglas" cancer]. She was chain smoking and drinking,” although her rep has not confirmed that her stay was related to substance abuse.
It does seem the actress is on the mend, however. Her rep says, “She”s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”
