Hollywood ‘it’ couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher announced their divorce. For weeks now the rumor mill has been brewing with news that there has been trouble in paradise.
Late September, a woman by the name of Sara Leal came forward stating she and 33-year old Ashton Kutcher had recently slept together. Read: “Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher Headed For Divorce?”
The couple’s big split still may come as a shock to some because the couple appeared in public together shortly after Ashton Kutcher’s alleged cheating scandal broke. However, after six years of marriage 49-year-old Moore and 33-year-old Kutcher are no more.
Demi Moore released a statement saying, “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values that I hold sacred, and it is in the spirit of that I have chosen to move forward in my life.”
As much attention as their age difference received, for years the couple had managed to steer away from any criticism regarding their personal marriage. This is the third marriage for Demi Moore and first for Ashton Kutcher. The couple have no children together.
Thursday afternoon, Ashton Kutcher took to Twitter to release a few words on the split, “I will cherish the time I spent with Demi…marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
There has been no further details into the divorce proceedings.
