Even though the couple seemed mismatched early on with a 16-year age difference, they had been one of the stronger Hollywood couples. However, the affair appears to have taken its toll on the couple, leading to a divorce.
After reports of the affair broke and speculation of an impending divorce began to circulate, Moore and Kutcher worked at the marriage. Neither one gave up immediately and both expressed the desire to work through things.
"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton," Moore said in statement from her publicist to ABCNews.com today. "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."
Ashton quickly took to his facebook to page to respond:
Demi unfollowed Ashton Kutcher about a month ago, and it's not difficult being married if you want to be married..we are just saying!
Ashton Kutcher’s cheating on his wife was the straw that broke the camel’s back but it was the “open marriage” they had that was the downfall in their marriage. After his latest affair became public, and Star magazine has exclusively learned that her secret life with Ashton and their “open marriage” has been much more twisted than anyone imagined.
“Everyone in Hollywood knows about their arrangement, but they’ve managed to keep it a secret from the general public,” an insider said about the A-list couple.“Demi is attracted to women just as much as men, so she didn’t always get all she needed from Ashton.”
