“She wants to punish him financially because of the way he has broken her heart. She is talking about going after a share of what he has earned since their marriage on the grounds that she contributed to much of what he has achieved,” says a source to The Daily Mail
We all know how Demi and Ashton’s relationship ended and we know the stories of Sarah Leal in the San Diego hot-tub and yada yada. Apparently Demi and Ashton had an open relationship, maybe, and that Demi wasn’t “satisfied” with Ashton and wanted to try out being bisexual or something…but for the purposes of needing to take a side, let’s just go with “Ashton cheated.” Yeah, boys can be dogs!
So anyways, what else did this source have to say?
“But Demi is furious, raging in fact – you only have to look at every photo you see of her to see the toll Ashton’s cheating has taken on her. She is going to give him a bitter fight and, whether or not she wins, it will be an expensive lesson for him.”
At the start of their marriage, Demi made way more money than Ashton and had a nice payday in her divorce settlement from Bruce Willis. At the time of their marriage Ashton was barely a household name, sputtering his lines on “That 70’s Show” and basically just really hot, but not really rich at this point. However, now Ashton makes almost twice as much as Demi, he makes $700,000 per episode on Two and A Half men, not including all the movies and episodes of That 70’s Show he’s racked up over the years.
However, the couple did sign a pre-nup, so Ashton should be safe. But that doesn’t mean Demi isn’t going to try her hardest to squeeze the dollars out of him. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and Demi is scorned indeed. Her younger husband went and put his penis in greener pastures.
“With a pre-nuptial agreement, Ashton should be sitting pretty. These agreements are designed to protect one’s earnings during the marriage as well as one’s pre-nuptial assets,” says the source.
Ashton must have known that Demi was going to be angry, so in order to try and “play nice” Ashton bought Demi a hybrid car. Nothing says “Sorry, I cheated” like an eco-friendly car.
On November 9, 2011 for Demi’s birthday, Ashton bought her a $100,000 2012 Lexus LS 600h hybrid-engine. This was just a week before they announced the divorce. No word yet on if she’s keeping the car or returned it to the dealer.
