The separation claims of Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas have been dismissed as not true.
According to the National Enquirer, the Chicago star is in a battle to rescue her marriage for the sake of their two children, the Mirror reported.
The celebrity couple were reported to be in a period of hush hush trial separation after 12 years of marriage.
But Douglas spokesman Allen Burry said: "They have not split. The story is not true."
Zeta Jones representative Cece Yorke also added separately that it "was not true."
The gossip magazine alleged that the marriage "buckled under the pressure of dealing with Michael's cancer battle, his son Cameron's prison term on drugs charges and Catherine's struggle with bipolar II disorder."
The magazine claimed that the 68-year-old actor had moved out of the home he shared with the actress and their children Dylan, 12, and nine-year-old Carys.
