Ashton Kutcher reportedly cheated on Demi Moore with a 23-year-old girl named Sara Leal — and experts tell us what could have caused him to potentially screw up his marriage!
Ashton Kutcher, 33, and Demi Moore, 48, seemed like the Hollywood power couple who could survive anything…but after news broke last week of his potential infidelity with a 23-year-old girl named Sara Leal, their status in our minds has changed. HollywoodLife.com consulted with several leading relationship experts who explained to us why Ashton may have started straying, despite having a sexy (albeit older) wife.
“Age could be a factor if it is indicative of an underlying problem in the relationship,” clinical psychologist Dr. Sheila Forman told us. “Such a problem could be -– a lack of common history or life experience; a deficit in physical abilities; or, a lack of emotional maturity.”
Carole Lieberman, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets explained how recently she’s watched Ashton and Demi’s relationship deteriorate.
“Demi and Ashton were so in love at one time, but when Demi started posting photos of herself in various states of nudity, it was a sure sign she was feeling insecure and needed to prove that she was still attractive,” she explained. “She was competing with the attention Ashton had started getting because of his taking Charlie Sheen‘s place. And Ashton, too, is at fault. He’s suddenly feeling his oats and starting to realize that he doesn’t need Demi’s star power anymore to bring him attention. These changes have been a recipe for disaster.”
Dr. Philip Dembo — who recently released his book, The Real Purpose of Parenting: The Book You Wish Your Parents Read told us what could have been the cause for Ashton’s infidelity to surface.
“Sara wasn’t in control at the end of the relationship but she can now control her own story,” he said. “When people are hurt they either explode or implode. When a person implodes, they hide away, they don’t want to talk, they are depressed and negative. But when people explode, they call all their friends and they have a need to let people know what really happened– they start telling stories true or untrue to make them look like the victim.”
He concluded, “If Ashton and Demi are going to work on the marriage, I would advise them to come together and say in a joint statement something about the remorse that he may feel and that they are going to work on this privately.”
