Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are supposedly in the midst of getting a divorce. But why would the couple call it quits now?
They've provided plenty of evidence that the whole cougar-cub thing can really work in Hollywood, but there have been some cracks in their seemingly perfect relationship.
Last year a young, enterprising brunette named Brittney Jones sold her story to Star magazine, claiming that Ashton had cheated on his wife with her. She even provided evidence in the form of texts. Kutcher threatened to sue Jones, but he never did, and she went on to sell an Ashton-less sex tape to make a quick buck (a move that definitely killed her credibility).
Things have since quieted down for Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, but they'll probably be in the spotlight a lot more now that Kutcher has snagged Charlie Sheen's old spot on Two and a Half Men. And of course Star magazine wants to be the first to thrust Ashton's name back on tabloid covers again.
According to Lainey Gossip, the cover story for the new issue of Star says that Demi and Ashton are in the midst of a $290 million divorce. And of course the mag says that their relationship is over because Ashton Kutcher is a chronic cheater -- he even supposedly had an affair with Britney Spears.
Demi Moore has been looking a little thin lately, so maybe the stress of a high-profile divorce is causing her to lose weight. There are also new Ashton cheating rumors out there, so there really might be trouble in paradise for the couple.
Ashton Kutcher landing his cushy new Two and a Half Men job could also have something to do with their troubles. Since leaving That '70s Show, he really hasn't had much of a career up until now and probably felt like having an A-list (or at least formerly A-list) wife was good financial security. Now he might feel that he doesn't need Demi as much, and perhaps he's looking forward to filling in for Charlie Sheen on the show by getting it on with a rotating door of attractive actresses.
Demi will be 49 in November, so it's also possible that Ashton started freaking out about her turning the big 5-0 soon. It might not seem fair if this is the case, but Demi had to know what she was getting into by marrying a much-younger guy.
So what do you think -- could there be any truth to the divorce story?
