Is Demi Moore planning to “financially punish” Ashton Kutcher in the divorce?

There are twenty-million stories about Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher this weekend, and almost all of them are pretty tedious and boring. Here’s an honest question: do you think Demi Moore really cares about money? Yes, she’s very rich (her production company makes her a lot of money), but do you think that Demi cares enough about the money to really fight tooth and nail about it during her divorce? I don’t. Anyway, here are some highlights from various stories:

*Ashton is keeping up with his professional obligations – he was spotted at work on Two & a Half Men after the divorce announcement. Fans say Ashton was “fine” and “very professional” and “business as usual” on set. Also, “It was a great show. He was his usual self. He seemed in good spirits. He seemed totally normal.” Probably because he doesn’t give a crap?

*Both Demi and Ashton have big premieres coming up in the next few months. Ashton is expected to make the promotional rounds for New Year’s Eve in December, and Demi will be promoting LOL, the film she did with Miley Cyrus, next year. Oh, and Demi has a small film coming out in December too – Another Happy Day. A source says, “She’s moving full force ahead in terms of work.”

*Sources describe the last days of Ashton & Demi’s marriage as a lot of unhappiness and a lot of fighting. Counseling didn’t even help. Shocking.

*The Mail claims that Demi is going after Ashton’s fortune in the divorce. A source claims that she’s instructed her lawyers to “punish him financially.” The source continues: “With a pre-nuptial agreement, Ashton should be sitting pretty. These agreements are designed to protect one’s earnings during the marriage as well as one’s pre-nuptial assets. But Demi is furious, raging in fact – you only have to look at every photo you see of her to see the toll Ashton’s cheating has taken on her. She wants to punish him financially because of the way he has broken her heart. She is talking about going after a share of what he has earned since their marriage on the grounds that she contributed to much of what he has achieved. She is going to give him a bitter fight and, whether or not she wins, it will be an expensive lesson for him.”

*Demi feels like Ashton “violated her trust.” The marriage couldn’t even be fixed by a make-or-break trup to Parrot Cay in the Caribbean, where they stayed at Bruce Willis’s house: “She was a wreck. She believes strongly in marriage and she really didn’t want to spend her middle years alone. But in the end, she just couldn’t see any way of making things work. Bruce told her he is in her corner.”

*Demi and Ashton were all about the threesomes while married, according to sources: “They would have threesomes. Demi liked women and Ashton would bring another woman into their relationship for flings, but they both agreed to it. If he wanted to do anything as long as she knew about it she was fine. It was the sneaky ones when he got caught that infuriated Demi. Demi is attracted to women just as much as men, so she didn’t always get all she needed from Ashton. That’s why she didn’t mind having women in the relationship as long as she was involved.”

Do I believe that they had threesomes? Eh, sure. I don’t think it was a regular thing, though. My guess is that it was a last-ditch effort to save their marriage in the past few years, and that it was more for Ashton than for Demi and her “needs”. I’m not sure that I buy that Demi is all about having sex with ladies, either. I think her needs are about holding on to her youth and maintaining a certain image.

    Wives of the world take note. If your husband brings home some random “hot biscuits” and claims he’s only concerned about your sexual needs, the marriage is in trouble.

    • theaPie says:

      Exactly. Why even bother getting married at all? I wonder if the reports are true that their marriage was not a legally recognized one?

      • Jay says:

        I’ve seen that said a few times and I finally have to comment. Marriage isn’t just about sexual exclusivity. So I can conceive of a marriage where there’s still a point in getting married even if the sexual component is non-traditional.

        Whether she did it to keep her man (sad if so) or because it was truly what she was into, who knows. More than anything though marriage needs trust and honesty. If you keep things from your spouse, even if it’s just a poker night or something, it ain’t good.

  2. mln76 says:

    Sadly when people want revenge in divorce they go after either the children or the money. Since there are no kids she’s choosing the cash. Neither route is very mature. Demi may not need a red cent from Ashton but she may want to punish him. This isn’t going to be handled as well as her first divorce.

  3. Kaboom says:

    If she tries to challenge the prenup it will swing both ways. I doubt she’d be so stupid as to expose her assets to 50:50 splitting under California law.

    • Hautie says:

      So where they legally married?

      And I am not buying into this whole… “Demi loves the ladies!” or the “Demi needed to have threesomes!”.

      I simply do not believe she wanted her husband near other women. Directly in front of her face.

      But it is nice to see that Ashton’s PR team are earning their paycheck. By keeping the whole “Demi loves the ladies!” in the press.

  4. Kimbob says:

    I’m only going to “allow” that if threesomes were a part of their marriage, then it’s no damn wonder this has happened. Since when was marriage between a man, a woman…and ANOTHER woman? F that! If they did the threesomes, then they’re both getting what they deserved….pie in the face and a very public marriage smeared in the tabloids.

    Shit, everyone knows that w/a man, if you give an inch, he’ll take a mile.

    Yeah Kaiser, you’re right. Demi’s most important concerns ARE her “youthful image,” and how she “appears.” All that “Kaballah counseling” was bullcrap.

    And speaking of counseling. It’s been my experience that married couples wait way too long before they seek marriage counseling. The whole “trick” is to seek counseling WHEN THE PROBLEMS FIRST APPEAR! Not to have all the shit hit the fan, you have a GREAT BIG MESS, w/resentments, anger, tempers flaring all over the place…and then expect a trained marriage counselor to come in and clean up all that crap….IMPOSSIBLE!

  5. Canuk says:

    @Kaiser: You are BAD! So, Demi Moore has a production company? What foresight! Lol.

  6. Amy says:

    They were annoying as a couple with all that tweeting back and forth. I always said they would end up divorcing because Ashton would cheat. I sort of feel bad for her but how could she not see what the rest of us could? Ashton was only in his 20s when they got married and it was so obvious he would eventually get bored. And while I’m completely speculating, Ashton may want kids one day… and unfortunately that can’t happen with Demi. She is better off without him.

  7. Jules says:

    Why do celebrities insist in getting those oversized veneers? I see a future of celebrities with Gary Busey teeth. Other than that, I have no sympathy for Moore. You want 3some’s in the marriage, you marry someone young enough to date your kids, and you are shocked this happened? Bull. Ya reap what ya sow.

  8. lisa says:

    @amy

    ITA about the tweeting. That to me just showed that something was missing in their marriage. People that have a lot of fun together don’t need to be tweeting pics of themselves to the world. They would be to busy enjoying each other in other places. And regarding the kids. I recall Demi saying that she might want kids with Ashton. YEAH right.

    OK.. these two really are not that interesting when you really think about it.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      “ITA about the tweeting. That to me just showed that something was missing in their marriage. People that have a lot of fun together don’t need to be tweeting pics of themselves to the world.”

      Someone please tell that to Leanne Rimes and Eddie Cibrian!

  9. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    She probably went along withe the threesomes begrudgingly. I just can’t believe someone SO youth obsessed would happily “compete” with a younger woman (for the sexual attention of her husband). Sounds like she did it to hold on to him, rather than enjoy herself, and THAT is desperate and pathetic.

  10. bgirl says:

    I don’t see how marrying someone younger makes her deserve to be cheated on? This makes no sense. As for the 3somes, it’s all conjecture. No one knows the truth. I feel bad for her. It’s painful and humiliating to be deceived, especially in public.

  11. spinner says:

    She would be wise to just cut her losses & go her own way lest she ends up exposing herself for all to see.

  12. samira677 says:

    I doubt going after Ashton’s money is true. Supposedly they are worth about the same amount with Demi worth slightly more. So doubt she could go after alimony. She’s not financially dependent on him. I doubt the threesomes rumor is true. It doesn’t strike me as something she’s into or would want to do.

  13. LAK says:

    @canuk-Demi moore has been a producer since the early 90s. The most famous thing she’s done as a producer is the austin powers series of films.

    I think she pulled off a coup vis a vis appearing to put her career on the backburner to raise her daughters when she never left Hollywood at all, and simply switched to producing full time for a long stretch.

    I am always amazed that she doesn’t really talk about her producing successes, and especially as the acting come-back hasn’t worked out so well.

  14. NM9005 says:

    Wring every penny he has out of him! I would never say that about anybody but the Kutch is such a damn prick, I can’t help myself. I don’t for the life of me understand:

    1) why he’s famous
    2) why women want to be with him, he’s an ass who looks down on others, it’s proven in the past with Murphy and Jones
    3) why people go watch his films, he’s not that good of an actor and plays the same character over and over again.
    4) why Moore hasn’t dumped him earlier. It’s well established he cheated on her for years and the what? Third mistress should’ve been the one who tipped the scale over to “OUTTA HERE”! If she wants to present herself as strong and compassionate woman because she wanted to fix her marriage, she waited a bit too long. I thought she was faking it and desperate to hold onto to that projection of youth but now I kind of think she didn’t want to be alone. Some people just are like that. I dunno…

  15. wunder says:

    “Oh, and Demi has a small film coming out in December too – Another Happy Day.”

    Uh oh,sounds a LOT like Lifetime Movie Network. . . (Is that where your ‘work’ is now, Demi?)

  16. dahlia1947 says:

    if they had an open marriage (Eeewww)then I don’t know why she would have to punish him. I just thought of the reason, actually. She wasn’t included in his escapades? ANOTHER Eeewww!

  17. Alix says:

    She was better off staying in Idaho, dating her karate instructor. Her girls were better off, too.

  18. theaPie says:

    This is why California is a 50/50 state. So one party can’t ‘wring’ everything out of the other.

    This doesn’t really seem characteristic of her personality either. I call horsepucky.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Actually, it’s only 50/50 once you hit that magic number 10. Once the 10 year anniversary hits, you get half. Sometimes more. Why do you think Tommygirl filed for divorce from Nic right before their 10 year anniversary?

      • PleaseICU says:

        Pretty sure the TommyGirl/Nicole 10-year thing and divorce was something specific to their pre-nup/contractual arrangement. California is a community property state and applies pretty much from the time the marital economic community starts until it ends. The CP rules can be altered by pre-nup to a large degree though.

  19. Cheyenne says:

    I have a feeling that the three-ways may have been more of a desperate effort on her part to save what was left of the marriage, than because she was really into it.

    I hope she takes his ass to the cleaners. Guy’s a f*cking jerk.

  20. kibbles says:

    Relationships between older women and younger men do work (James McAvoy and his wife par example though they are closer in age than Kutcher and Moore). However, it usually requires the man to be mature and Kutcher has always acted immature. Immaturity is Kutcher’s niche and has helped make him famous among 20-somethings. He is one of the last men in Hollywood I would expect to be in a committed relationship with any woman let alone a woman 15 years his senior. The relationship was doomed from the beginning but Moore might have thought that millions in plastic surgery to make her look like she was still in her 30s was good enough to keep Kutcher happy. I don’t believe the threesome allegations but if true I agree that it was probably a last ditch effort on Moore’s part to save the marriage. I see Kutcher remaining a bachelor for a long time and maybe impregnating a gold digger the same as Hugh Grant and Jude Law. These guys will never remain faithful to one woman.

    • bettyrose says:

      Totally agree that the age difference is only one factor here. Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins were together for 23 years, which I would consider a pretty successful relationship & they had a similar age difference to Demi & Ashton. I’d bet money that Ashton’s next long term relationship will be with a younger, financially dependent woman, and he will publicly cheat on her.

  21. midnightmoon says:

    @kimbob: yeah, totally agree with you about getting counselling early on. If I had a dollah for every time client couples (or more) came to me AFTER s:-# had hit fan so I could watch the explosion, unable to help, I’d be eating well. :) sad. People need to keep talking & start getting help when the. Before it gets too chilly. Resentment, distress & bitching are signs you are IN TROUBLE. Sorry for typos-the wrap function fails me again. Ttfn.

  22. marina says:

    Hey I think she would definitely go after the money just to get back at him

    Celebitchy why do you quote a lot from the mail in England its known for spouting rubbish .

  23. palermo says:

    It sounds like this relationship was a mess from the start. I don’t like either one of them, so I don’t care how it all turns out.

  24. Kimbob says:

    @NM9005…agreed! Well written…bravo! Oh, BTW when you mentioned January Jones in your post, were you referring to the disparaging remarks Asshat made to January Jones regarding her acting abilities? I think he told her something to the effect that she would never “make it” in Hollywood because she could not act.

    I’m certainly not asserting that January Jones is a great actress. I’ve heard that her acting in X-Men was “wooden” at best, but I haven’t seen that movie and probably won’t.

    However, that being said, her portrayal as Betty Draper in Mad Men is ON SPOT DEAD ON!!! As a matter of fact, I cannot imagine any other actress in that role. She acts that role to perfection…absolute perfection!!! Maybe the character of Betty Draper is THE ONLY ONE she can nail, but Asshat Kutcher has probably eaten his words regarding January in that role specifically AT LEAST a hundred times over by now!!! LMAO!

    • NM9005 says:

      @Kimbob: Thank you! That’s a huge compliment coming from you (I like your comments and sometimes even look for them specifically =) ).

      Yes, I was talking about the acting comment and even though I never saw her act, I prefer Jones over Kutch any day. The acting business is grueling to get in to so for Kutch to say something so ignorant and plain evil when she voiced her pretty much impossible dream (the same as him no less!) is reason enough to believe, he is, was and always will be the King of Douchebaggery. Poor girl didn’t even get a chance to prove herself before her own boyfriend shut her down. Add that to the fact he dissed his other former girlfriend Murphy about something shallow as her weight and you get the idea why I’m handing that King his crown.

      I’ve heard she is quite stiff too so it will be interesting to see how her career will go after MM. She’s not publically popular enough to carry big films and I’m afraid her acting abilities can only take her so far (if critics are wishy washy about it, good luck for her to secure a part that requires depth and intelligence to play and can possible win respect from her peers). If it’s true she’s not that good than I hope she makes sure she improves through classes and keeps on finding ways to make herself a household name (X-men is a good start but blockbusters won’t cut it, Ahnold Schwarzenegger also did blockbuster so njeh).

      And omg a big YES! to the comment about Kutch having to eat his words. Jones can easily gloat over that for the rest of her life because T70sS <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Mad Men! I bet she probably did the "I Told You So" dance in her head when they chose her to play B. Draper. At least, I hope/pray she did =D

    • Estella says:

      J. Jones was also very good in an indie called “Swedish Auto.” Ashton is a real jerk if he said she can’t act. Who is he to judge another actor?

  25. LeeLoo says:

    Meh. I think she just needs to cut her losses and move on. Karma’s a b**tch and I think Ashton’s cheating ways will catch up to him eventually . After 2 1/2 Men, I call time on Ashton’s career so he’s going to need that money to live off of until the end of his days.

  26. Pizzazz says:

    I wish they both would just go away. I can’t stand either of them.

  27. lisa says:

    I always thought he was happiest with Brittany Murphy. I always wondered about them and just thought of how things for both of them would have been different if they stayed together.

    They were a cute and quirky couple. I never thought he and Demi were a good match. Not so much the age difference. Just their interest.

  28. wunder says:

    Demi has twinkie cream for brains. . . And Ashton even less than that.

    While nobody will ever know the true story, methinks they probably 100% deserved each other. . . I think they were a Blind Vice. If true, then there’s more backstory re Demi and her lack of ‘innocence’ in the relationship.

  29. anne_000 says:

    In the last photo, Demi looks like she should have played the Evil Queen in a Snow White movie.

    Whether or not it was an open marriage (which I think it might have been), Demi has reacted in a way that ended up hurting herself. She tried to have something that wasn’t realistic. Like the Evil Queen, she thought that beauty, money, fame, & power were all she needed to keep her boytoy husband, & she tried desperately to hold onto those things. But, like the Evil Queen again, she was never going to remain as young & beautiful as the up & comers. There was always going to be some other woman who would beat her in those aspects. And again, like the Evil Queen, she’s not going to let go gracefully, but exact her revenge no matter what the outcome, even to the detriment of her own reputation.

    She should have let go long ago and saved herself a lot of humiliation & self-destruction. But, if what’s mentioned in this article is true, then she has no plan to move on with her life. Instead she’s going to hold onto Ashton in whatever way she can for as long as she can, even if it’s just to hurt him.

    A few days ago, I watched an old Betty Broderick movie (starring Meredith Baxter). I’m not saying Demi’s obsession is to that level, but I think Demi should learn from the lesson from it, which is that even though you feel deeply slighted, if you can’t move on & let go, then everything you do with that corrosive obsession is only going to backfire, & you’ll end up with the worst image out of all those involved.

  30. Pffft says:

    Wow, she has some unnatural looking huge teeth.

  31. PyCaramel says:

    I wouldn’t marry a man in his 20s and I’m in my 20s. Let alone a rich, famous 20-something? Oh yeah she should have known.

    • kibbles says:

      Right @PyCaramel! I’m in my 20s and couldn’t wait to leave college to meet an older man on my maturity level. I am currently dating a man 7 years older and it’s much more stable than dating a guy in his early to mid-20s. Even my boyfriend says he wouldn’t date himself when he was in his early 20s – he had a lot of growing up to do and responsibility to learn. There are mature men in their 20s but they are hard to find these days with more young people putting off commitments such as marriage and children to stay in school or enjoy being single for as long as possible. Add to that millions of dollars and access to hundreds of attractive younger women and anyone could have guessed that Kutcher wouldn’t remain faithful to Moore forever.

  32. Violet says:

    Hmm, even if they have a prenup, she still might be able to nail him for a hefty settlement for endangering her health by having unprotected sex with random strangers. Frankly, that’s insanely risky in this day and age.

    (Nevermind the fact that the hot tub girl told him she wasn’t even using birth control! Which makes me think that January Jones’ baby might be his, since he’s so careless.)

  33. NeutralObserver says:

    As a divorcee, I think I can say from experience that no one outside of a marriage really knows much about a couple’s relationship/marriage. Often, even close friends and family aren’t privy to some of the (positive) closeness and some of the (negative) issues.

    I don’t know this couple or have any affiliation with them, but I have some very strong feelings about the way their relationship has been discussed by others (mostly in the media — this isn’t a criticism of the comments here). I believe that every couple has the right to work out their own version of what works for them. And if you take a marriage relationship seriously, you work on it and work on it until you realize it’s not working for one partner or the other (or both). Sometimes couples can find a way past this situation. Sometimes couples cannot. I find it very odd that Demi would be criticized by anyone for taking her time to figure out what she needed and for taking her relationship seriously. You would think that anyone who respects relationships — whether they entail marriage or not — would appreciate someone taking time to try everything possible to get to a positive place, hopefully together.

    I also don’t understand why people take the end of this marriage as a statement about cougars or incompatibility related to age. These two seem to have had a lot in common and they seemed to have a lot of good times and closeness. (Yes, I’m skipping the douchebaggery and immaturity and focusing on the positive.) As much as I hate to say or believe it, the fact that the cougar discussion still comes up at all seems to emphasize the fact that society still sees men and women in an unequal way. Are any of the older men/younger women marriages ending in divorce required to bear the burden of symbolizing that age differences make for terrible relationships? They aren’t because age differences, themselves, don’t necessarily make for terrible relationships — whether the man or the woman is older or younger.

    I’ve heard the couple criticized for being too kind to each other, even after the scandal broke. And now there are reports that Demi is going to take him to the cleaners just to stick it to him? So now they are being criticized for being really upset and mean to each other? Does anyone even care that many of these reports seem to be completely contradictory (keeping in mind that things can go sour at any time, of course, so it’s possible that they could have been on better terms for awhile, and then things went south later)? Mainly, though, it seems there isn’t much respect for truth or respect for others’ choices or respect for differences in people and couples. There’s a thirst for scandal and the tearing down of others. I don’t understand it. Admittedly, I’m taking the time to post about it now, though, whatever that means.

    Does anyone really think Demi will have trouble finding willing suitors? I’m a hetero female, but sign me up.

    Like I said, I don’t know these people. I didn’t follow them on twitter, and I don’t know much about the ins and outs of their relationship. But I don’t think anyone else outside of their relationship truly knows much about it either. I wish the best for both of them and hope they can find happiness separately, if not together.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Im probably going to catch sh@t for this, but here it goes. In general, men are always looking for the younger prettier mate. Women “evolved” differently. They tend to value the security over pretty/shiny/new. That’s why people think the Demi’s & Ashton’s are doomed, while the older man/younger woman relationship is overlooked. It’s not fair, but it’s a fact of life. That’s why I don’t get down on Madonna for going through the boy toys like toilet paper. She’s reversing gender roles and it’s pretty cool. I think some of these men deserve a taste of their own medicine. Sorry guys ;)

  34. Meanchick says:

    I’m not a fan of prenups, but I understand the need for them. I think that when a couple enters into a prenup, it should be considered void when there is (proof of) infidelity. I don’t know if DM wants to punish him financially, but his reputation for smashing random skanks will follow him from now on. Did they have an open marriage? Don’t really care, but if they did, I’ll bet there was an agreement not to let it become public.

  35. Lauren says:

    After being punished with Demi’s fake body parts for years, Ashton can handle anything. I think AK is just glad this plastic charade parade is over.

  36. Snappyfish says:

    I’m sure her stature & $$ helped him in the beginning. Other than being pretty he isn’t much of an actor but then same can be said of her.

    If dignity & values matter to her as her press release indicated. That is how she should leave the marriage…in a dignified manner

  37. Cerulean says:

    I get tired of the age gap being totally to blame. I’m sure it contributed but there are certainly other factors involved. They both seem shallow and self absorbed.
    However, I would like her to punish him for being so indiscreet and shameless. It would be nice to see Asston suffer some. Maybe knock his inflated ego down a few pegs.

  38. jane16 says:

    Do we have any Calif attorneys in the house? E has a lame-o story about how Demi is going to soak Ashton for a settlement of half his income & alimony. I’ve never been divorced but all the women I do know who were divorced with less than 10 years of marriage did not get alimony. Also, if she’s made a similar fortune over the marriage, would there be settlements? All assuming no prenup.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Mum’s been a Family Law paralegal in Cali since I was born, and I’ve been through a divorce here myself, if that helps.

      The way it works in Cali is that if you’ve been married LESS than 10 years, you are entitled to alimony for HALF the duration of the marriage: i.e. since they’ve been married for 6 years, she/he would get alimony for 3 years. IF neither of you waives your right to alimony – it’s just as easy for him to sue you for alimony as it is for you to sue him. What I did in my proceedings (7 years married) was waive my right to spousal support, and he did the same. It just made it easier for all involved.

      However, once that “magical number 10″ has been achieved, you’re entitled to half. PERIOD. FULL STOP. Now, if you choose to waive that right, that’s up to you. If you choose to fight for more, that’s also up to you (and your attorney). There is ALWAYS ROOM FOR A SETTLEMENT.

      The better the attorney, the better the settlement. I had the highest-powered divorce attorney in my county. (Mum works for him.)

  39. Dana says:

    What I don’t understand is if Demi was desperate enough to have a threesome, why didn’t she just get pregnant? That was she could keep her hooks into Ashton and his wallet for at least the next twenty years like she does with Bruce.

  40. Playlist says:

    Sadly, her boy-toy grew up and Demi couldn’t hold on to him any longer. There is a maturity difference between being a boy-toy and being a younger man. Ashton’s not upset with the split because he’s now like a kid in a candy store. He can become a player among the groupies with his new overpaid salary as the Charlie Sheen stand-in. He’s rich, he’s single, he no longer has to answer to Demi, and that must feel liberating.

    Demi is too much of a control freak to have a threesome. She wouldn’t like sharing her man. If she did, it was a last ditch effort to save her marriage (which never works). Demi doesn’t need Ashton’s money, but it’s the one thing she can take from him now, so it will likely get ugly. He did sign the 2.5men contract while they were married and he probably wouldn’t have gotten the job or negotiated such a good deal without Demi’s help. Demi may make stupid personal decisions, but she is business savvy and she can lock onto a percentage of his earnings from the show. Ashton may have been her husband but he was also her protégé. She will demand a return on her investment.

    Demi will play the victim for as long as it can serve her. Anything for attention is ok in her book. Prepare for more surgical makeovers as she will be on the hunt for a new guy to rub it in Ashton’s face. Eating would be a good start. Even though no amount of surgery can change her overbearing personality, she won’t have any trouble finding a new guy that is willing to be her next project. Ashton came out of this marriage rich and famous. He has Demi to thank for that. Demi’s not about to let him forget it.

  41. the original bellaluna says:

    #1. Cheaters gonna cheat. It wouldn’t have mattered if the roles were reversed (age-wise) and Demi was 16 years AK’s junior: HE STILL WOULD HAVE CHEATED. Demi didn’t “ask for it” by marrying a younger man. So shut it on all that blather.

    #2. I’ve never met a divorce attorney who had to be TOLD to punish a soon-to-be ex-spouse financially. Divorce attorneys tend to go that route from the get.

    #3. Since Demi has played an integral part in setting up/supporting AK’s career & business ventures, of course she deserves a share of his money. Particularly that he’s now got a steady acting job.

    #4. If AK had stuck to their “agreement,” whatever it may have been, and not humiliated Demi, I think she probably would have stuck.

    (am I the only one seeing this new format? did my little terror do something to my settings again?)

    Weren’t there Blind Items about them not actually being legally married? That whatever ceremony they took place in wasn’t legally binding and they never bothered to make it so? If that is the case, this story is definitely false.

      I’ve been asking that very same question myself, for a long, long, time.

      I heard-tell it was a Kabbalah “commitment ceremony” that was never made legal, and I’ve been asking about it ever since.

      There have been blinds about it, but I’ve not seen a “solved” blind yet.

      If so, a “divorce filing” isn’t going to be official. Someone needs to check the public records.

    I really don’t understand why couples who do NOT have children involved have to play these games. (Not that games are valid with kids, but emotions run so much higher). She has significantly more assets already, why “punish” the douchebag re: money? Just tell him to take his dong and hit the road-the extra money she may gain from litigation is not worth it.
    Follow the wisdom of Sandra Bullock: disappear for awhile, keep your mouth shut, get the hell out of the marriage as soon as possible, AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE!!!!

    Perhaps this was all an act to begin with? This relationship generated pages and pages of publicity for both of them – it propelled Ashton to star status and kept Demi in the limelight.

  45. eternalcanadian says:

    This has the potential to be one helluva divorce. But maybe Demi will take the high road and cut her losses to such a douchebag. All the things she gave Ashton like cars, clothes, or whatever, she should get back if she can. Ashton should get nothing and a kick in the arse on his way out the door. I’d be totally surprised if Demi didn’t get a STD or two because of Ashton’s numerous cheating and not using condoms or whatever. Gross. Bleh. :|

    As for the threesome stuff. Of course any marriage isn’t going to survive something like that. Look at that whacko show Sister Wives. You can’t tell me none of those “wives” aren’t jealous they aren’t the only woman that other douchebag does the jiggy with?

    Actually come to think of it, what was Demi thinking chasing after Ashton in the first place? He treats women like crap–anyone remember Brittany Murphy and January Jones? Also having someone like Bruce Willis around really doesn’t bode well for Ashton to be monogamous. I always thought Ashton had the eyes for Rumer and hey who knows maybe he’ll go after her now–like mother like daughter. Ewww!

    so sick of seeing those nikon ads with douchebag. . . they’ll be playing that one multiple Xs a day all thru the holidays.

  47. Kloops says:

    I’m not a fan of relationships with vast age differences because I believe that in very few exceptions the parties are at two very different stages of life. Yes, Demi is immature, but Ashton is even less mature than your average 23 year old ( let alone 33 year old).

    Thanks for posting the beautiful photos of Demi and Ashton. “The Way We Were.”

    @laughing librarian: Emotions don’t necessarily run higher with people just because they have kids. There are couples with children who divorce amicably all the time. It all has to do with the emotional state and the maturity level of the couple. (ahem, read between the lines ashton). But I do agree about Sandra B., she handled the debacle with J.J. with aplomb. She should write a book and cash in on that good judgement! :-)

    I dislike both these fake untalented bimbos. Bruce knew!!!

  51. Redd says:

    Wonder who will pick out Ashton’s clothes for him now?

  52. BELLA says:

    SHE LOOKS LIKE A WITCH….ASHTON HAS THE WORLD OF WOMEN AT HIS FEET…

  53. Lisa says:

    People are KILLING me stating that the reason why this marriage broke up is because of threesomes…or swinging…

    THAT is not what broke them up…cheating has NOTHING to do with what a husband and wife does TOGETHER…just because it offends so many peoples sensibilities to even SUGGEST that having other people join a couples’ marital bed…there are people who ENJOY each other and ENJOY each other with OTHERS…so they shoulding be married because they get down like that?!?! When did SEX become the basis of marriage?!?!

    Let me drop this mic and go on with my day!
