Well, it’s hardly surprising given Ashton’s recent behaviour; but Demi Moore has today confirmed that she plans to divorce her husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher.
Speculation has been rife for weeks regarding the state of their marriage, ever since rumours emerged of Ashton’s infidelities. The couple, who have a sixteen-year age gap, were reportedly seeing a marriage counsellor and taking various holidays in a desperate attempt to save their marriage. However, this has obviously not worked as their marriage has now ended in the way that many Hollywood marriages seem to end.
Demi released an official statement today confirming the split:
“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
The news of a divorce must be a relief for Demi’s children; she has three daughters as a result of her 13-year marriage to Bruce Willis. Demi’s daughters were said to be distraught and disgusted at Ashton’s treatment of their mother.
The couple very much live their lives in the public eye, they often use Twitter to communicate with each other despite the fact that millions of followers can read every word. Nevertheless Miss Moore has requested privacy during this time. Going through a separation is always difficult never mind having to endure it through the constant presence of the media.
Our thoughts are with Demi and her family during this time.
