Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s divorce battle

Sources say divorce proceedings between Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have become hostile and the couple may be headed to court.

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.
