Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's divorce has been, in a word, a bloodbath. The Kutcher/Moore divorce started in November of 2011, and here we are, a year-and-a-half later, no progress whatsoever -- but now we know why. Evidentally, Demi wants $10 million of a $100 million business deal Ashton was a part of, and Ashton's saying: In your dreams, Moore.
Apparently, Ashton, business-minded man that he is, founded a venture capital fund with Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, called A-Grade Investments. The purpose of A-Grade was to invest in tech start-ups, and it's been valued at $100 million -- and Demi wants a piece of that shiz. But Ashton's saying that he made all that cash after he and Demi split, so Demi shouldn't get jack. According to a source: "Ashton set up A-Grade with Oseary 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. 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."
Now let's not forget here either that, for whatever reason, Ashton makes a shitload of money on Two and a Half Men. The dude is wealthy. Really wealthy. And he cheated on Demi and publicly humiliated her. Yes, $10 is a lot of money, but, well, that's what you get when you're super rich and don't value the sanctity of marriage: Screwed.
I really hope that Ashton winds up having to pay Demi the $10 million. Not only because I find him particularly annoying, but because: Dude, Where's Your Morals? You hooked up with a random girl in Vegas and tried to lie about it even though there were pictures! And now you're trying to lie about how much money you have! Not cool. Not cool at all, Kutcher. You owe that woman big time.
What do you think about this?
