Zeta-Jones Paparazzi. Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas got into a scuffle with the paparazzi after a special honors celebration. On Thursday, Catherine was named Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), the third-highest rank in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Hours after the ceremony, the Welsh-born actress and husband Michael Douglas were confronted by paparazzi outside their London hotel. The altercation was caught on video. Zeta-Jones was allegedly hit in the face by an aggressive paparazzo.
She screamed out, “I want a police officer right now. He punched me,” according to ET. While she reportedly shoved the paparazzo out of the way, Douglas intervened. When reached, Douglas’s rep, Allen Burry, told ET, “You saw it for yourself,” referring to the video footage of the incident. “Otherwise, the trip and the ceremony were fabulous and such a joy for everyone.”
Earlier in the day, Zeta-Jones said she was happy to have her husband, healthy, by her side at the CBE ceremony. “It was worth [it] to have Michael in good health to be able to enjoy it with me.”
It was announced on August 16, 2010, that Douglas was suffering from throat cancer and will undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatment. On August 31, 2010 Douglas appeared on Late Show with David Letterman and confirmed that the cancer was at an advanced stage IV.Â Â On January 11, 2011, he said in an interview that his tumor has gone. He will have to have monthly screenings because there is a very high chance that the cancer could return over the course of the next two to three years. Although Douglas has described the cancer as throat cancer, many doctors believe he was actually diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer.
