Ashton Kutcher And Demi Moore Announce Divorce

17 November 2011
After dodging separation and affair rumors for months now, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher officially announced plans to divorce.

"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton," Moore said in a statement to The Associated Press. "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. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation."

"Two and a Half Men" star Kutcher took to Twitter to confirm the split. "Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK," he wrote on the social networking site. As of press time, Moore's Twitter handle was still @mrskutcher.

The two had no children together but did start the DNA Foundation last year to raise awareness about the sexual exploitation of young women around the world.

People magazine reports that in the wake of Kutcher's affair scandal earlier this fall, the two had been working on their relationship. "Demi loves Ashton as much as she hates public humiliation," a source told the website around the time the affair rumors broke. "The marriage isn't good right now."
