Trouble continues to follow Catherine Zeta-Jones

Knight Ridder Newspapers


A London tabloid reported Sunday that gunmen tried to force the star's limo off the road and abduct her in Mexico, where she is currently shooting a film. Meanwhile, Mexican authorities deny any knowledge of an abduction attempt against Zeta-Jones.

Film producer Lloyd Philips was quoted in the Mexican press as saying only that there was a small accident in which another vehicle struck the car in which the actress was riding.

The rumored kidnap attempt comes on the heels of a detective's testimony that phone bills show that the person accused of stalking Zeta-Jones, Dawnette Knight, made threatening calls in mid-May to a hotel where the actress was staying. A judge will hold a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence for Knight, who was arrested on June 3, to stand trial.
