More than a year after Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher announced they were splitting up, Moore will officially file her divorce papers in Los Angeles as early as today (March 6).
Moore previously said she wanted to settle the divorce via confidential agreements, but the New York Post reports that the actress is tired of being unable to reach a settlement. Even though Kutcher filed his in December, Moore didn't want to file her papers until after the private agreement was reached. Now the divorce could go to a trial.
An insider reportedly told the Post that Kutcher has been especially "difficult" and "hostile" throughout the process.
“Ashton made a lot of money after marrying Demi -- a lot more than she made -- but despite him becoming just as famous through her, he believes he doesn’t owe her that much,” the source said, emphasizing that Moore is fed up.
The couple have attempted to reach a private settlement for the past year.
"Demi is definitely ready to move on,” the source said of her decision to file. “It’s hoped lawyers for both sides can reach a settlement this spring. Otherwise the divorce will go into litigation and trial.”
Kutcher, 35, is the highest-paid actor on TV thanks to his leading gig on "Two and a Half Men," which net him $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. The last payday publicly reported for Moore, 50, was $2 million for 2003's "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle," according to IMDB.
Kutcher and Moore split in November 2011 following rumors that Kutcher had an affair with a 22-year-old on the night of his and Moore's six-year anniversary.
