Moore released a statement on Thursday that read, " It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. 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."
I understand where she's coming from, but you know, it's gonna be a pain in the ass to change her Twitter name. Gotta start over, get new followers. I think I'd stick with the marriage just to not deal with that.
The split follows reports and allegations that Ashton boned 22 year-old Sara Leal on the day of his sixth wedding anniversary. Kutcher was staying at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, celebrating the engagement of his That 70s Show pal, Danny Masterson. He reportedly met Leal and took her up to his room. He and Demi supposedly have an open marriage, but it looks like things got a little too open.
Moore added in the statement: "This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation."
After Moore announced the split, Ashton took to Twitter to release the following statement: "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. Love and Light, AK."
After the scandal broke, Moore and Kutcher seemed to be trying to work through their problems. They attended Yom Kippur services together and were spotted camping near Santa Barbara, California along with their Kabbalah instructor.
Before Leal, Ashton was rumored to have cheated on Demi with Brittney Jones, 22. Jones claimed she and Kutcher had sex in July 2010. At that time, Ashton and Demi took a trip to Isreal, with the actor describing it as a spiritual journey.
This week, the couple spent time together at the home of Moore's ex, Bruce Willis. "They had to get a way," a source said. They took refuge in Willis' home in the Caribbean. "Ashton's Tweeting was the last straw."
