London: Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones scrapped two of her performances of her Broadway show ‘A Little Nigh Music’ after falling ill.

The actress is currently starring on the New York stage in the musical, but she was forced to cancel both a matinee and evening show on Wednesday (19May10).

The cancellation sparked rumours that she was flying to join husband Michael Douglas at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

However, Zeta-Jones` representative has dismissed the rumours, insisting she was sick.

"She wasn’t able to go to Cannes due to her commitment to performing eight shows a week," the Daily Star quoted the rep as telling the New York Post.
