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.

These divorces should be the easiest because they are both independently wealthy. Take the net worth of both in 2005 and subtract it from their collective net worth now. Divide by 2 = DONE.

Why is everyone buying a story that it's about the money, when it makes no sense...and the more logical assumption is that the emotionally crippled woman does not wasn't to deal with the painful reality of being cheated on and left by her husband. That makes way more sense. But it doesn't make her sound strong and independent so evidently her PR team would prefer her to look greedy than weak....

This chick had the nic of "Gimme More" in the 80's. Looks like it still holds.

Why should she get the same deal with Ashton as with Bruce. She had three kids with bruce....lot different situation. Ashton cheated but she sounds like she has a few issues herself. They should make this quick and put us all out of our misery. I'm not looking forward to this dirty laundry.

I don't care what some of you think. I don't think that it was realistic of her to marry a young man and waste seven years of his life. She was too old to be his wife!

She was so smug and clingy and flaunted her "super happy" relationship with Kutchner for years. Wasn't her name Mrskucthner on Twitter? For years we got it rubbed in our faces how happy they were, how she had this hot young guy, how she never had any surgery and she was perpetually young. When something like that blows up its hard not to laugh at it. They are both filthy rich, just divide it up already, and go away.

No, I'm not a "hater" as you people call it, but I absolutely cannot stand Demi. She is so damn self-absorbed and selfish that she is losing/has lost her children, every man or boy who comes her way, and most importantly, she has lost herself! What a sad and pathetic position to be in. She needs to get her head out of her azz and realize how blessed she is but she can't because the only person she cares about is HERSELF! She cannot be in a relationship with anyone because she has nothing to give to it as she is too concerned about her perceived "self-importance". Getting sick of seeing her in those black nasty glasses too. She has just gone downhill quickly an it's her own fault. I cannot blame any man for leaving her.

I can certainly see why she would want to live off her ex husbands...she has no career!

Do they have a prenup? Hopefully she doesn't get anything. Did she honestly think this relationship would last forever? Did she honestly think he wouldn't eventually want to have children of his own? Did she honestly think he wouldn't come to his senses about the age difference at some point. Her payout from Bruce Willis made sense...this just looks desperate. She doesn't need one cent. She's doing this to kick up dust.

They both have more money than God, there is no way they can spend it all. I say put them both in an episode of Survivor or the amazing Race and let's enjoy these 2 going after it! Beats lawyers and another court date!
