It’s been sixteen months since Demi Moore called it quits with estranged husband and Punk’d star, Ashton Kutcher. And despite the fact he filed divorce papers three months ago, she’s ready to file her own set of divorce papers. Could this get ugly? Take the jump for more details.
According to the Huffington Post, Moore has postponed filing her divorce papers until a settlement could be reached with her soon to be ex-husband but that hasn’t happened and now their divorce could end up going to trial.
A source close to the situation said Ashton has been difficult throughout the process because he “made a lot of money after marrying Demi…a lot more than she made…but despite him becoming just as famous through her, he believes he doesn’t owe her that much,” the source said, and she is simply fed up with him.
Kutcher is the highest paid actor on TV. His role on “Two and a Half Men” alone netted him a whopping $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012, not to mention the money he made from investing in various tech start-ups.
Attorneys from both sides are working to reach a settlement but if they are not successful, the divorce will mostly likely go to trial and could get nasty to say the least.
Moore and Kutcher were married for 6-years before calling it quits in November 2011 following rumors he had cheated on her numerous times throughout the marriage.
Moore is represented by New York attorney William Beslow and Kutcher is represented by Los Angeles celebrity attorney Laura Wasser.
What do you think? Will Ashton and Demi be able to reach a settlement? Or are they headed for an ugly court battle? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.
