Mrs Carter: Why did this take so long?
It has been more then a year since the news first broke that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher had decided to end their marriage, (after rumors surfaced that Ashton had been unfaithful to Demi), but now a year later Kutcher has finally decided to file for divorce – so what exactly was the hold up? Reports from TMZ says that Kutcher was allegedly waiting for Demi to file, but when a year passed and there was still no movement Ashton finally decided to file the papers himself on Friday. Other sources say that Moore was waiting for some sort of financial resolution between them before filing as she is said to be worth a lot more money then Kutcher is and likely didn’t want to lose her fortune to him (her New York apartment alone is said to be valued at $25 million).
A source close to the situation said that Moore was holding out for the same type of divorce settlement that she worked out with Bruce Willis before filing the papers (no one really knows what that settlement was, but we hear she came out the winner on that deal). With Demi and Ashton not having any children together, they really just have their fortunes and properties to divide.
With Ashton and Demi waiting so long to file, they now have to wait another six months, on top of the year they’ve already waited for the divorce to actually be final – so by next summer Demi and Ashton will be free agents, although Kutcher is rumored to have already moved on with his “That 70’s Show” co-star Mila Kunis.
