Demi files for divorce

Demi Moore has announced that she has filed for divorce from Ashton Kutcher.

In a statement, the 49 year old actress said: "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.

"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."

No doubt the reference to the "values and vows" will fuel the already widespread speculation that Kutcher cheated on his wife.

Their relationship has been closely followed by sections of the press due to the 16 year age gap.

They have rarely been seen together in public since it emerged that Kutcher allegedly had a fling with Texas-born Sara Leal during a weekend of partying in San Diego.

After Moore's statement, Kutcher took to Twitter to comment: "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."
