MICHAEL Douglas’s ex has accused his current wife Catherine Zeta Jones of loving fame and lacking culture.]
Feisty Diandra Douglas, 58, launched a thinly-veiled attack on the actress from the home in Majorca which she jointly owns with her ex-husband.
Asked about rumours that Catherine – back with Douglas after a brief separation – had tried to buy her 50 per cent share of the Spanish villa, she retorted: “It’s not true. Sometimes people say things without the slightest proof.
“Why would someone who doesn’t speak Spanish or the local Majorcan language or knows nothing about this culture want a house here? She doesn’t even come here much.”
Asked by the interviewer why she was “less visible” than her former husband and Miss Zeta Jones, 44, Diandra said: “That’s because I don’t believe in showing off.”
I don’t believe in showing off. I’m proud to be able to say that I’ve never turned my private life into showbusiness
Diandra, who was married to Douglas, 69, for 18 years, also revealed she and her son Cameron, jailed for drug offences, “meditated for his freedom” at the same time every night for 15 minutes. Michael and Diandra have both spoken in support of their 35-year-old son who was convicted in 2010 for selling methamphetamine and heroin possession.
He was found guilty of repeatedly breaking prison rules by arranging to get drugs and was placed in solitary confinement. He is not due for release until 2018.
Diandra also insisted that reports she had lost a recent court battle for half Michael Douglas’s salary and royalties from the 2010 Wall Street sequel Wall Street 2, were wrong. She said she had asked lawyers to halt her claim after learning her ex was ill with cancer.
