Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s marriage has been long over in terms of reality, but now it’s legally closer to being official. It’s confirmed: Kutcher, no longer satisfied with living everyday satisfied with technical freedom from his estranged wife has formally filed for divorce, according to People Magazine.
Divorce papers citing irreconcilable differences were filed Friday in LA Superior Court, the magazine cited.
The publication says the 34-year-old “Two And A Half Men” star will not be asking Demi for any spousal support nor will he deny her any. The docs also say that child support and visitation is not an issue since they did not have any children together.
It was only a matter of time that Kutcher would formally file to divorce Moore; thus the news comes as no surprises especially since the couple announced they had decided to end their 6-year-marriage in November of 2011.
“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,” More was quoted to have said last year.
Kutcher offered a more humble comment at the time saying, “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been a public item for a number of months since he and Moore split.
This newest development also reveals that Kutcher has hired A-list divorce attorney Laura Wasser to represent him. In the past, Wasser has represented Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum and Angelina Jolie, along with many other social elites.
Despite the bitter end to their six-year union, both sides have avoided trashing each other in the media.
In fact, there has been scarcely any public sniping, only unnamed sources claiming Moore has been delaying the divorce out of spit for Kutcher moving on so easily with Mila Kunis.
Nevertheless, it looks as though it’s all over now and the two sides can begin to move on with their public and private lives.
It’s conceivable that the quality of life for both parties will improve once they can put this legal technicality behind them.
