Demi Moore may be stalling the divorce process out of spite towards ex Ashton Kutcher and jealousy towards his new boo Milo Kunis.
More and Kutcher called it quits over a year ago and have been separated for quite some time, but it seems like the couple still isn’t any closer to a divorce than they were a year ago.
According to TMZ, neither Demi nor Ashton has made any major steps towards officially ending the marriage. The gossip site even suggested that neither of their lawyers has even received any indication that they want to file for a divorce.
Well it seems like TMZ is the only source reporting that both parties are stalling, because other gossip mags are suggesting that Demi is the one holding things up.
“Demi has instructed her attorneys to delay negotiations as much as possible,” one source told Radar Online. “The main issue they have been fighting over has been the division of assets and the monetary settlement, but it’s now gotten to the point where Ashton is willing to cave in to all of Demi’s demands just to reach a settlement.”
Just as quickly as Ashton gave and finally neared a settlement, however, the source claims that Moore began “playing hardball and every time they come close to reaching an agreement she throws up another objection or demand.”
At this rate, it seems like the couple’s six year marriage won’t ever come to an official end, despite the fact that the 34-year-old actor has already moved on to another woman.
Ashton Kutcher has hooked up with the Sexiest Woman Alive according to Esquire, which may be all the more reason that the mother of three could be feeling envious towards her ex’s new relationship.
The actress and film producer turned 50 last week (November 11), and seems to be “frustrated and jealous.”
Ashton’s new girlfriend, Mila Kunis, is 20 years younger than Moore.
To make matters worse, the Two and a Half Men star has just been named the highest paid actor on television after pulling in a whopping $24 million between May of 2011 and May of 2012 – yet another reason Demi might want to push things off.
Being replaced by a younger woman who was named one of the sexiest women alive might be enough to have an ex feeling bitter and angry, but the fact that Kutcher had also cheated on the Striptease actress earlier in the relationship seems to have taken a toll on her.
“Her friends aren’t convinced she’s all better,” an insider told People.
Even the General Hospital actress’s children seem to be sticking by Kutcher’s side.
“Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah have all remained close to Ashton and they have completely come down on his side,” another source told Radar. “Rumer especially is really annoyed at her mother for dragging things out and thinks she is behaving like a total b***h. As far as the girls, and Ashton, are concerned everyone needs to move on with their lives and this whole fiasco has been going on for way too long.”
Mila Kunis obviously seems to agree.
“Ashton’s always talking about how serious he is about her, and how he wants them to get married and have a family,” another source told Look. “But that’s crazy when he hasn’t even divorced his first wife yet.”
Only time will tell if Kutcher and Moore will take the initiative to get things moving along and finalize the divorce.
