Ashton/Demi $10 Million Legal Battle Is Getting Ugly

Their marriage between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore may have ended a long time ago, but the divorce has obviously just begun. The pair are currently in the midst of a court battle to the tune of $10 million dollars. According to the New York Post, the former couple are in a $10 million battle over A-Grade investments, the venture capital fund Kutcher formed with Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary and billionaire Ron Burkle, which was recently valued at $100 million. This is a battle that obviously will not end in an easy settlement.

Sources close to Kutcher believe he’s in the right, claiming that the actor has made a lot of money in the 18 months since the separation, and he doesn’t believe he owes Moore as much as she claims. This seems plausible, especially since Kutcher became the highest paid actor in television, striking a $700 000 per episode deal for Two and a Half Men. However, this isn’t the money that Moore is laying claim to.

“Ashton set up A-Grade with Oseary and Burkle in 2010, when he and Demi were still together, but he recently told her lawyers the fund had not made substantial money. In fact, he claimed he had only put about $1 million into it," the source told the Post. “Now it seems Ashton and Oseary were working towards a private offering based on a valuation of $100 million. Ashton owns 20 percent of the fund, under California law, Demi should be entitled to half of his share — $10 million.”

It’s all very complicated obviously, but one thing is clear – Moore does not need the money from this divorce settlement. However, according to sources close to the couple, she was really hurt by Kutcher making the first move and filing the divorce papers. It looks like hell really hath no fury like a woman scorned.
