Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones split up

Good news if you’ve ever wanted to nail either one of Catherine Zeta-Jones’ personalities (I’m looking at you Leo DiCaprio, John Mayer, and Adam Levine) — she’s officially single. According to People, the two recently split up (they haven’t been seen together since the Chaplin Gala in April), but haven’t filed for divorce yet:

Two close confidantes tell People that [Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have] decided to take time apart: “They’re taking a break,” one source says.

Neither star has filed for divorce or moved toward a legal separation, sources say.

Those close to the couple hold out hope they can work out their differences. Says one family friend: “They want the best for their kids, no matter what happens.”

Catherine vacationed in Canada last month without Michael (because she doesn’t like him), and Michael is currently yachting off Sardinia without Catherine (because he doesn’t like her), so you had to think this was coming. And who can blame Michael? He’s 68 and just got over a cancer scare. He’s living on borrowed time and knows that Kendall Jenner turns 18 on November 3. Wait a minute . . . I think I see what’s going on here. Kris Jenner has somehow convinced Michael to dump his wife and is pimping Kendall to him for ratings. It makes complete sense now.
