Demi Moore may be rich and famous, but she's no different from millions of scorned wives seeking revenge -- and that's why she wants spousal support from Ashton Kutcher ... despite the fact that she's richer than him.
There is no way a judge would ever give Demi spousal support. Short story ... she doesn't need it and she won't get it. A source close to Demi tells us ... she was "really hurt" by Ashton, whom the source called a "bad husband." The source would not use the word revenge, but the sentiment was clearly there.
That said ... multiple sources connected with the former couple tell us ... Demi and Ashton are in the midst of negotiating a financial settlement, and her lawyer knows the more Demi asks for, the better she'll do in the end.
We're told they're actually pretty close to striking a deal -- and it WON'T involve spousal support.
