Demi Moore has been spotted having dinner with a new man, just two weeks after announcing her split from husband Ashton Kutcher. The actress, 49, was a no-show at her daughter Tallulah's induction into high society in Paris on Saturday (November 26, 2011), but it seems the Margin Call star had more pressing matters at hand.
Moore dined with a male friend at the celebrity haunt Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, while ex-husband Bruce Willis travelled to Paris to attend the ball. Some reports suggest the actress has already moved on from Ashton, though one source told US Weekly magazine that Moore was dining with Hollywood florist Eric Butterbaugh, saying, "They are BFFs.Totally platonic friends. She was just with her friend having a nice night out", An eyewitness told the New York Post's Page Six, "Demi looked good, and like she was ready to be seen out. She was in deep conversation with her male companion". It was indeed Butterbaugh who joined Moore and Kutcher on a camping trip in October, immediately after news began to circulate of the actor's alleged affair with Sara Leal, 23.
That trip wasn't able to fix the Hollywood couple's marriage, and Demi announced plans to divorce last month. The couple are reportedly now preparing to do battle in court, with the small matter of a $280 million fortune to divide.
