After being separated for over a year, Ashton has finally taken the steps to legally end his marriage to Demi! Read on for all the details.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore announced that their six-year marriage had reached its end, back in November of 2011, but no legal action had been taken by either party to dissolve the union legally for more than a year! On Dec. 21, Ashton finally began the proper legal proceedings by filing for divorce in Los Angeles.
Ashton filed the papers with the Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. According to People magazine, he isn’t asking for any spousal support nor is he attempting to deny Demi any. As the couple had no children together, the documents illustrate that child support and visitation are not a problem.
Following reports that Ashton had been unfaithful to Demi, she issued a statement on Nov. 17, 2011, detailing her decision to end the marriage. “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” she wrote.
At the time, Ashton tweeted, “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.” Since their split, Ashton has begun seriously dating his former That ’70s Show co-star Mila Kunis.
According to People‘s report, the documents reveal that Ashton has hired Laura Wasser, an A-list divorce attorney whose past and current clients include Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, and Angelina Jolie.
Recently, Demi had been linked to another younger man, 26-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel, though the two aren’t thought to be dating any longer.
Are you surprised it’s taken this long for Ashton to file for divorce, HollywoodLifers?
