Demi Moore

I Wanted a Divorce

From the Day I Left Him

12/22/2012 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1221_demi_moore_article_gettyDemi Moore planned to divorce Ashton Kutcher from the day she left him in November, 2011 ... sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ.

As we first reported ... Ashton wanted to give Demi the chance to file herself -- a whole dignity thing since he's the one who was allegedly cheating on her -- but he finally got tired of waiting after a year and filed for divorce Friday.

But our sources say Demi was not stalling ... there was something going on with some sort of financial issues between the two of them that prevented her from filing ... something she was trying to resolve. We're told Demi never wavered in her resolve to get unhitched.

One final thing. Our sources say Demi is "genuinely happy" now and has no regrets about moving on.

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 Kutcher
and Demi Moore have taken NO steps to end their marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us ... neither Ashton nor Demi have given their lawyers any indication they want to file for divorce.

We're also told -- contrary to several reports -- Demi and Ashton are not haggling over money and who gets what. There have been NO discussions about dividing assets.

It's unclear why neither of them has gotten off the dime to end their marriage -- but they haven't.

Ashton and Demi separated in November, 2011. They were together as a married couple for 6 years.

To Save Marriage

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Less than two weeks before Demi Moore announced she would divorce Ashton Kutcher, he threw a Hail Mary to save the marriage ... in the form of a lavish, eco-friendly gift. 

According to our sources, Ashton contacted a high-end car company, to buy a new set of wheels for Demi's birthday. We're told Ashton picked out a 2012 Lexus LS 600h L -- and paid North of $100,000.

The car Ashton Kutcher bought Demi Moore -- a Lexus LS 600h
Our sources say Ashton wanted a quick deal -- bagging the luxury hybrid on November 9, just two days before Demi's birthday.

If it was meant to win back Demi ... clearly it didn't work. We don't know if Demi accepted the vehicle or if Ashton was able to give it back to the car company.

On the upside -- 22 mpg!

Demi says, "as a woman, a mother and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life."

Ashton just tweeted, "I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail" -- though it's unclear if this message was approved by his Twitter team.

Demi Moore too skinny
Demi Moore looked to be in desperate need of a good meal when she hit the N.Y. premiere of her new movie last night ... and according to Joan Rivers, it's because Demi BARELY ate anything on her flight in from L.A.

Joan was on the same flight as Demi ... and after she got off the plane, Rivers sold out her co-passenger to the paparazzi ... telling them that all Demi ate on the 6-hour flight was an apple ... and some water.

A moving truck went to Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's house in L.A. yesterday ... according to the photo agency that shot this pic.

It's adding fuel to the firestorm of speculation that the marriage is on the rocks. But then again, a moving truck doesn't necessarily mean divorce.

We contacted the moving company, but they clearly wanted to stay a mile away from the story.
