Demi Moore is ending her marriage to Ashton Kutcher to “move forward” with her life, she announced last night.
The 49-year-old Hollywood actress revealed her divorce plans, saying she was doing it with “great sadness and a heavy heart”.
It follows several allegations that Kutcher had been unfaithful, including apparently cheating on his wife with Sara Leal in a hotel in September.
Moore said last night that “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”.
She added that it was a trying time for her and her family.
The six-year marriage was first reported to be in jeopardy two months ago after Kutcher was accused, for the second time in a year, of having an affair. The 33-year-old was said to have spent the night with Miss Leal after an alcohol-fuelled evening.
Kutcher recently took over troubled womaniser Charlie Sheen’s role in hit U.S. comedy series Two and a Half Men. He and Miss Moore – whose films include Ghost, Indecent Proposal and About Last Night – celebrated their wedding anniversary the day after the alleged encounter happened.
Kutcher was first accused of infidelity in September last year. At the time, Brittney Jones, 21, told a magazine she had sex with the actor inside the Beverly Hills home he shares with his wife – while Moore was away.
It was also claimed that Kutcher was so worried the alleged affair would be exposed he made her delete their text messages.
At the time, the couple – estimated to be worth £95million – brushed off the allegations.
It is Moore’s third marriage. After divorcing first husband Freddie – whom she married in 1980 at the age of 17 – she met and married Hollywood tough guy Bruce Willis, now 56. They had three children before splitting in 2000 after 13 years.
