After weeks of neither party confirming nor denying the allegations of infidelity, it appears that there really was enough wrong with Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s relationship to call for a divorce. The 49-year-old actress announced to the Associated Press today that she would be divorcing her husband of six years:
“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.”
When their relationship started, it received much attention for the pair’s 16 year age difference and was recently back in the spotlight when allegations arose about Ashton having an affair with a young woman on the same weekend as his wedding anniversary. He has never confirmed or denied this accusation but responded via tweet to Demi’s announcement saying:Â â€œI 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.”
Six years is almost a record in Hollywood; still, we were hoping this one would go the distance!
