Ashton and Demi wrangle over money as divorce progresses

Demi Moore and Ashton KutcherAshton Kutcher and Demi Moore and wrangling over money as their divorce moves toward settlement, TMZ reports.

The Hollywood couple separated in November 2011 amid allegations of infidelity but famously did not begin divorce proceedings until the end of last year.  Demi, now 50, is reported to be seeking ‘spousal support’ (maintenance) from her estranged husband, despite the fact that she recently received $15 million from the second of her three husbands, film star Bruce Willis, in connection with their divorce. The site also claims that Demi is richer than 35 year-old Ashton.

According to TMZ:

“If the case doesn’t settle it’s virtually certain a judge would reject Demi’s spousal support claim.”

The actress also allegedly wants Ashton to help pay for renovations to her New York apartment – in the upmarket San Remo building – but he is unwilling to do so, TMZ claims.

The former power couple may settle as soon as next month, the site’ sources claim.
