Ashton filed divorce papers in December last year from his wife of seven years, but Demi has reportedly “had enough” of the Two and a Half Men star’s “refusal to budge” on certain matters and is ready to file her own papers, reports the New York Post.
An insider says the 50-year-old actress had tried confidential settlement with Ashton (35), but eventually tired of stalled negotiations.
“Ashton made a lot of money after marrying Demi – a lot more than she made – but despite him becoming just as famous through her, he believes he doesn’t owe her that much,” the source told the Post.
“After over a year of attempting to reach a settlement, Demi is definitely ready to move on. It’s hoped lawyers for both sides can reach a settlement this spring, otherwise the divorce will go into litigation and trial,” the source adds.
Ashton’s fortune is estimated at $163 million, while the Ghost star’s is thought to be around $181 million.
