Catherine Zeta-Jones axed two performances of her Broadway show A Little Night Music on Wednesday after falling ill.

The last-minute cancellation sparked rumours she was flying to join husband Michael Douglas at the Cannes Film Festival in France, but Zeta-Jones’ representative slammed the claims, insisting she was sick.

The spokesperson tells PageSix, “She wasn’t able to go to Cannes due to her commitment to performing eight shows a week.” Zeta-Jones is hoping to return to the stage to resume her role on Thursday.
