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.

Come on, she has had a year to know this was coming and he gave her the opportunity to file first all year long. They have been separated since November of 2011, and she could have filed at anytime during those dates til now. Maybe he has a reason for filing now a few days before Christmas. Maybe his Christmas present to his current gf Mila Kunis is going to be an engagement ring!

Finally! Hope he marries Mila. Demi wil probably go off the deep end now. After all, the pyscho has only had a year to get used to the fact that Ashton does not want to be with her. Now he can save on lawyers fees.

"It was a whole dignity thing"?? WTF? He cheated on her, AND SKINNED IT!! He's DISGUSTING!!! I can't believe he's not concerned with getting an std. Or getting some nasty ho pregnant. Mila should run, she seems way too good for him.

He is a cheating, lying s***bag.. Demi is beautiful and has had a great career... She deserves better than this d-bag.. he's a D-rate actor too -- one of the worst actors in the business..


What a douchy thing to do right before the holidays -- even if she does celebrate Kaballah -- it is still the holiday season and a d-ck head move to file days before..


Have fun with that lying cheat, Mila.. He will do the same to you -- just give him time..

Kutcher is a s***bag for cheating on his wife. However they have been living apart and acting divorced for at least a year, maybe longer. This is Demi's third hubby and she has zero kids with him. Mila should know once a cheater, always a cheater.

Or maybe they need to be separated for a certain amount of time before being able to file for divorce

Who knew his real first name is Christopher?
Do we need to start a "Dead Pool" entry for Demi now, since she has not done well at all since they split?
Ugh!!!

Hey..the man waited a year so that she could get herself together...since she seemed so traumatized by the breakup. It's time that he legally moves on.

Come on people. He may not be husband of the year. But something tells me Demi didn't just all of a sudden start using drugs And behaving badly when he had an affair. I just saw pictures of her in a recent magazine. Once again trying to be 20. She looked strung out,skinny And wrinkled. She could be a beautiful middleaged woman.She chooses not to. How is that his fault?

Demi was devastated when her marriage ended with Bruce and now she was publicly humiliated with Ashton. How *should* she react? Like a cold-heart woman? To me, it shows she's just as human as the rest of us. Naïve perhaps marrying someone as immature as Ashton - but human nonetheless.

Sounds like he is paving the way to marry Mila's Kunis.
