Ashton Kutcher filed for divorce from estranged wife Demi Moore in December and Moore recently filed her response to the divorce action, asking for spousal support and demanding the “Two and a Half Men” star pay her legal fees. Radar Online reported on March 11 that Kutcher and Moore did not have a prenuptial agreement when they married and now Demi Moore wants a giant piece of Ashton Kutcher’s fortune.
When the couple married in 2005 Demi Moore was worth “a considerable amount more than Ashton.” A source told Radar Online that Kutcher is now worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million, and that Moore has not brought in the “big bucks” in years.
“Demi’s finances are solid, but she took a back seat during their marriage and allowed Ashton to be the star – and bigger earner – of the family. Demi believes she provided crucial guidance to Ashton that helped him get to where he is today, and she [Demi Moore] thinks it is only fair that she be compensated for that now [that] they are no longer together.”
So far Demi Moore has not been pleased with the financial settlement discussions, claiming that Ashton Kutcher does not recognize the impact she had on his life.
Ashton Kutcher’s financial empire includes his yearly $20 million “Two and a Half Men” salary, as well as a lucrative endorsement deal with Nikon, investments in startup companies including Skype and Foursquare, as well as a very successful production company. Sources say that Demi Moore is not fully aware of just how much Ashton Kutcher is worth.
Reportedly Kutcher and Moore split due to his adulterous affair with Sara Leal, but some say Demi’s substance abuse caused the breakdown of their marriage. Ashton Kutcher has moved on and has been dating his “That ‘70s Show” co-star Mila Kunis. Sources say that Moore is infuriated and humiliated and wants to hurt Ashton the way that her hurt her, and the only way Demi Moore can do that is by hitting Ashton Kutcher where it hurts most, his bank account.
