“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,” she said in a statement released to the Associated Press.
Take note Kim Kardashian.
Moore, 49, who is known for her age-defying beauty, said she made the decision with “with great sadness and a heavy heart.”
Kutcher was quick to respond on Twitter.
“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.”
The couple tried in the weeks following the scandal to repair their marriage, mainly through counseling at their Kaballah center.
One of Hollywood’s most endearing May/December marriages defied conventional wisdom while it was going strong.
Moore was 43 years old, while Kutcher was 27 when they met in 2005 and married the same year. Kutcher was her third marriage.
She’d divorced her husband of 13 years, Bruce Wilis in 2000 after three children.
They became one of Hollywood’s true power couples, but their marriage, according to Kutcher, has been drifting for the past few years.
Tabloids claimed he was involved in other cheating scandals, but Kutcher’s marriage managed to survive the headlines.
His romp with 22-year-old Sara Leal unfolded in front of several witnesses in a San Diego club and ended up in a hot tub at Kutcher Hard Rock Hotel room in San Diego.
Kutcher partied with Leal and three other women nude and later had sex with Leal.
The party girl went on to sell her story to a UK tabloid.
Moore most recently appeared on the big screen in “Margin Call” and “Another Happy Day.”
Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on TV’s “Two and a Half Men” as is part of the ensemble rom-com “New Year’s Eve,” set for release next month.
Now he’s just like the schlub character that he plays on television.
