Catherine Zeta-Jones spent about five days in a mental health facility for treatment of bipolar disorder.
“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,” a rep said in a statement.
“She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”
How have Douglas and her kids been handling it? I’m sure it has been a very difficult time for the entire family.
Zeta-Jones has been by husband Michael Douglas’s side during his cancer fight this past year.
“There’s no question it’s been a stressful year,” the friend says.
“Catherine has had deal with Michael’s illness and that’s been hard. She went in for a few days because she’s about to start working, and wanted to make sure she’s in top form, which she is.”
Luckily Douglas beat the cancer after six months of chemotherapy and radiation for a tumor on his tongue.
We wish Catherine a speedy recovery.
