Demi, 49, decided that 33-year-old Ashton’s infidelity was too much to handle, US Weekly reports.
“The final straw with Sara Leal has just been too humiliating for Demi to get over,” a source close to the couple said. “[She] just couldn’t look at Ashton the same way and the marriage… completely unraveled. She still loves Ashton but feels he went too far and disrespected her and their marriage in a way that can’t be taken back.”
Demi also felt the need to be a strong role model.
“She wants to set an example for her daughters and this was just something she could not rationalize to them or to herself,” the source said. “She really tried everything she could to forgive him and accept his apologies. At the end of the day, the public humiliation and the example she was setting by staying in the marriage just wasn’t the right thing for her.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — was Sara the final straw for Demi?
