Demi Moore to divorce Ashton Kutcher after six years of marriage

Ghost star Demi Moore, 49, announced her divorce plans today, saying she’s doing it with “great sadness and a heavy heart”.

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton,” she said in a statement.

“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”.

Demi and Ashton married in September 2005.

The couple’s relationship became tabloid fodder in recent months as rumours swirled about Kutcher’s alleged infidelity.

Demi adds that it’s a trying time for her and her family, and asked for people to respect her privacy.

Prolific Tweeter Ashton, 33, took to the social networking site at 8.45am today (AEDT) to comment on the split: “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi,” he wrote. “Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK.”

Texas-born model Sara Leal, 22, alleged she had sex with the Two and a Half Men actor on his sixth wedding anniversary to Moore in September.

Sara gave a candid interview where she revealed all the tawdry details about the seedy night at the Hard Rock hotel in San Diego, California.

Sara claimed the Two And A Half Men star wanted to have a threesome with her and her best friend Marta Borzuchowski – but in the end settled for a two-hour romp with Sara.

She also said that Ashton told her he had separated from Demi when she asked him if he was married.

Sara said she had sex twice with Ashton.

“We had sex twice. Everything felt natural. We were having a good time. He was good, but it wasn’t weird or perverted or creepy,” she told Us Weekly.

“He had good endurance. We were up for a while. It was about two hours.”

In the interview she added that they had unprotected sex, saying Ashton didn’t use a condom during their encounter.

Sara described how earlier in the night he had kissed her and her friend Marta on the bed of his hotel room.

“I’m sure he wanted to have a threesome,” she said. “It was clear he wasn’t opposed to it.”

Sara said there were around 20 revellers partying with Ashton in his lavish suite, drinking vodka, tequila and beer. Most of the guests left at around 5am, leaving Ashton with Sara and some of her girlfriends.

Sara claimed they then all jumped in the hot tub naked, saying: “Ashton looked hot naked.”

When one of Sara’s friends asked if Ashton was married, Sara claims he replied: “I am separated.”

After the hot tub session, Sara and friend Marta ended up in Ashton’s bed – but Marta left after a short while leaving Ashton alone with Sara.

“The last thing I remember him saying was he did a good job. We woke up and I was wearing a robe,” Sara said.

“He opened it up and I was like “What are you doing?” He was like, ‘Just checking. Ok, I did good. You’re really pretty’.”

Last month Ashton was pictured apparently trying to save his marriage with Moore at the Cachuma Lake camp ground near Santa Barbara, accompanied by the couple’s Kabbalah instructor Yehuda Berg and Kutcher’s friend Eric Buterbaugh.

The pair were being counselled by members of the faith. Ashton, a Kabbalah devotee, is said by website Radar Online to have apologised for his behaviour to his wife on Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement.

He allegedly asked for the chance to make amends for cheating on Demi with Sara on the morning of their sixth anniversary.

Just two days before their campfire summit, they attended a Kabbalah service in Los Angeles together – the first time they had been seen together in three months.

Though they sat on opposite sides of the aisle, Ashton greeted his wife with a hug after the service, and they reportedly walked out with their arms round each other.
