Ashton Kutcher

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.

It is horrible that he filed right before Christmas! He could have waited until after the holidays after waiting a year. He is a jerk. I feel bad for Demi since he cheated on her and quickly began this relationship with Mila. Also for some reason her kids won't talk to her and have taken that sleazeball Ashton's side even though he cheated on their mother and broke her heart and she needs them. I hope she stays clean and sober and does not relapse around the holidays.

Mila must be pregnant. Ashton wouldn't have cared about when to file unless something major has happened.
Poor Demi. She needs to move on now.

Demi obviously had some type of breakdown over the separation, so it was kind of Ashton to wait until she was more stable.

The hot older lady can last for so long and don't get me wrong she is one hot older women, but at that age difference you can have only so much in common, and add a drug addiction to that it was bound to happen.

She should be more concerned that her own kids don't want to see her because it's too disturbing for them. Wow what happened to her? She flipped out while they were all still together.

I'm not a big fan of either one but they have been separated for over a year and Ashton has moved on since he is dating.

I think there is some truth to the fact that he gave her a chance to file first. He probably wanted the papers filed before the end of the year and with they holiday set as they are, today would have been the best day.

Why she didn't go ahead an file? Who knows but when one person has moved on it's time to move on.

Long over due, finally, he can concentrate on finding a good girl for a wife and have children of his own.
Demi wasted his time with her selfish desire to feel young again by having him. She can never compete with his younger choices.
No more step children his own age where they had to help parent him too.
Cougars stay away he needs to make up for lost time.
Ashton please run from "mother figures" who could "TRAP" you again

Everyone seems to be forgetting - in Hollywood, most celebrity relationships are short lived ... regardless of the ages of the respective spouses.

Ashton's and Demi's relationship actually lasted a lot longer than many of these celebrity marriages.

Shouldn't like he be filing to be emancipated? I think that is what you do when you don't want to live with mom anymore!
