Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

Divorce Hang Up Is

OVER MONEY

12/23/2012 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1222_demi_ashton_01Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher don’t have kids to argue over so money has become the default source of conflict ... ironic since both of them are loaded.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the sticking point in the divorce has been that Demi wanted the same type of settlement from Ashton that she got from Bruce Willis. We do not know the details of the Willis-Moore settlement, but sources tell us she scored big time.

Demi is FAR richer than Ashton -- the value of her New York Apartment alone is around $25 mil.

As TMZ first reported, Ashton waited for more than a year before filing for divorce Friday because he wanted to give Demi the dignity of doing it first ... but she never pulled the trigger. Other sources say Demi was waiting for a financial resolution.

What’s curious is that filing for divorce earlier would have made more sense ... because they still have to wait six months before the divorce is final.

TMZ, you're being punked. They were never married legally. No marriage certificate. The divorce papers are for show. Get with it.

For a woman who hasn't done much in years, she sure comes off as greedy when she gets her divorce on. Feel sorry for the next victim.

Since their both a waste of time, why don't they just donate the settlement to people in this country who don't "survive" on a mere $150 million? oh yeah I forgot "Demi's pain and suffering" puleeeeeez

Not that it matters but typically when someone owns a place worth $25 million they owe $20 million on it. With mortgage rates as low as they are it doesn't usually make sense to pay cash when buying a house.

So in other words, Demi is being childish & vindictive. Yup, sounds about right.

It's not like they are the first people with money to get a divorce. And money doesn't stop people from filing. The money is usually resolved during the divorce process.

What a money grubbing worn out bimbo. The skank cougar is like 20 years older than him, has more money then him, and still this gold digging slong socket wants to rob him like she did Bruce. How pathetic this tramp of a woman is. May your illegal immigrant butler give you aids, douchebag.
