Ashton Kutcher

Files for Divorce

1221_kutcher_moore_divorce_docs
Ashton Kutcher has finally pulled the trigger, filing for divorce from Demi Moore ... over a year after the couple split up ... and now we know why he waited.

34-year-old Ashton filed the docs today in L.A. County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. He uses his full legal name 'Christopher A. Kutcher.'

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Ashton waited so long because he wanted to give Demi the chance to file first ... it was a whole dignity thing. After a year ... when Demi showed no signs of making her move, Ashton finally did.

Ashton and 50-year-old Demi have no children together. They were married in September 2005 and separated in November 2011.

According to the docs, the property rights of Ashton and Demi will be worked out later.

Ashton and Demi split in the wake of cheating allegations involving Ashton and another woman. Ashton is currently dating his "That '70s Show" co-star Mila Kunis.

Jeez. Merry Christmas! Demi is kind of unstable anyway, and I think filing at this point in time is a little thoughtless. JMHO.

I'm no AK fan but how is this mean? They've been apart for a year. She's not perfect either. It's time to move on. He probably wanted because of her mental health problems, but she needs to move on and this is an important step. That being said, Mila is way too good for him.

Last comment I meant he probably waited, not wanted, because of her mental health problems

Call it whatever you like, but the older woman younger man scenario just doesn't work! She's a beautiful woman, and if she were standing with a man her own age, she'd look fantastic! But standing next to a man 15+ years her junior, makes her look like an old lady, and a desperate one too!

People are so quick to blame Ashton, when it looked pretty obvious a year before they actually split that she was an addict with a mulititude of issues and was just using Kabbalah "counselling" to work through it with her family. So what if he partied after they split? I don't get the blame game here. Sh^t just didn't work out.

Wow I hope she's ok and this is not adding salt to an open womb. She's had more than a few meltdowns.
