MICHAEL DOUGLAS SHOCKING RELAPSE CONFESSION!
BAD DAD’S SLIDE COULD HURT ADDICT SON’S RECOVERY
CANCER survivor Michael Douglas has been hiding a shocking relapse secret!
The 74-year-old “Wall Street” star — who checked into rehab in
1992 to be treated for alcohol and cocaine addiction — has confessed he hasn’t stayed clean and sober!
“Not really,” Michael recently admitted.
“Everything is a question of moderations.”
His rehab stint was a desperate bid to save his first marriage after then-wife, Diandra Luker, caught him in bed with another woman.
They eventually split, and the reformed skirt-chaser wed brunette bombshell Catherine Zeta-Jones in November 2000. But the “Basic Instinct” star’s shocking disclosure comes after a string of drugrelated tragedies hit his family.
Michael’s younger half brother Eric died in 2004 from an overdose of alcohol, tranquilizers and painkillers when he was only 46.
His oldest son, Cameron, was busted in 2009 for dealing crystal meth and sentenced to five years in prison. He was caught with drugs behind bars, extending his sentence, and wasn’t released from prison until 2016.
But Cameron, 39, violated probation in April 2017 by using marijuana, making it clear he’s still struggling.
Now Michael — who was diagnosed with stage IV oral cancer in 2010 — sees a father-son link.
“My oldest boy was a heroin addict who spent sevenand-a-half years in a federal prison,” he said.
“But I think you learn about genetics, amongst other things, that you have to be careful.”
Although Michael has pledged to be a better example to Cameron, his relapse confession could hurt his son’s hopes of staying straight, said an insider. “Michael knows he was a bad dad,” a source spilled. “He had hoped to redeem himself to Cameron by being a source of strength when he needs it.”
