Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones are not fighting over their 14-year-old daughter Carys’s aspirations to become an actress and model, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop looked into the supposed drama, and we can exclusively set the record straight. We’re told the claims are simply “not true.”

An article in the latest issue of OK! quotes a so-called “insider” as saying that Douglas is “sick with worry that Carys will succumb to the Hollywood party scene,” but his wife “has turned into a total stage mom, hiring Carys an acting coach, talking to designers about getting her a modeling contract and taking her along to meeting with producers.” The outlet’s questionable source adds, “She’s grooming Carys to be her mini-me!”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Douglas and Zeta-Jones, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s story is 100 percent “not true.” This report seems to have been manufactured simply because Carys attended her first-ever runway show during New York Fashion Week earlier this month. Following the event, the teen told E! that she’s open to modeling but Carys herself even said she’s not sure what she wants to do for a career just yet.

Carys joked, “Actress, model, brain surgeon… we’ll see.” And while the teen might model in the future, she stressed that she doesn’t “know about right now.” Consequently, Douglas and Zeta-Jones aren’t arguing over their daughter’s potential interest in the fashion world.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time OK! has wrongly reported the spouses were having marriage problems. Last October, the magazine falsely claimed Douglas and Zeta-Jones were fighting over the actor’s son Cameron following his release from prison. It’s not surprising that the publication would now try to create more marital issues over another child. Gossip Cop, however, can confirm these recent claims about their daughter Carys are also incorrect.
