Michael Douglas Shoves Photographer Who Punched Zeta-Jones

| by Oh The Scandal

Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones were involved in a scuffle with a paparazzo last week outside their London hotel.

Zeta-Jones was named Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) on Thursday, for her accomplishments in film and her work with charities. The couple were returning to their hotel when they were swarmed by paparazzi.

 As they exited their car and made their way towards the hotel’s entrance, one of the shutterbugs allegedly hit Zeta-Jones in the face.

In video footage of the incident obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the Welsh siren can be heard screaming, “How dare you punch me!”

She adds: “I want a police officer right now. He punched me!”

Douglas then lunges at the paparazzo, gives him a shove and calls him an “a**hole.”

Douglas’ rep issued a statement saying: “You saw it for yourself. Otherwise, the trip and the ceremony were fabulous and such a joy for everyone.”
