Demi Moore is making a substantial move with new divorce proceedings that could be a battle over a lot of money, worth $286 million for Ashton Kutcher.
The former celebrity couple couldn’t agree on settling their financial dispute. There was a confidential deal over their separation that involved a lot of money, but those talks have broken down. They may have to settle the matter in an ugly divorce battle in court.
Kutcher, 35, is said to have become “hostile” while Moore, 50, has supposedly “had enough” of his refusal to budge.
The feud between the two has only ignited ever since Kutcher has been dating actress Mila Kunis. Friends say the new relationship is strong, and they have become inseparable. Moore has also been dating, but nothing serious.
The couple split in 2011 after six years together and since then there has been a lot of speculation on why the Hollywood couple had not formally divorced.
Kutcher filed divorce papers in Los Angeles in December, but Moore has yet to respond. Both parties have to do so for the process to move forward. Neither side wants to budge.
Kutcher is the highest paid actor in the United States, which means money could be an issue. The actor earned $22 million last year from the comedy show “Two and a Half Men.”
His personal fortune is estimated at $135 million, while Moore’s wealth is thought to be around $150 million, thanks to her hit films in the 1980s and 90s.
Moore could be bitter with the divorce, according to a source who wants to remain anonymous.
“Ashton 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. “Ashton has been very difficult during the talks. You could even say he has been hostile.”
Something tells us that Moore is ready for a long divorce trial that could keep the tabloids busy all year with drama.
