Catherine Zeta-Jones was forced to cancel two performances of her Broadway show A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC earlier this week (19May10) after falling ill.
The actress is currently starring on the New York stage in the musical, but she scrapped both a matinee and evening show on Wednesday (19May10).
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 New York Post's gossip column 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 (20May10).
