REASON FOR THE ASHTON KUTCHER-DEMI MOORE DIVORCE
In November of 2011, Demi Moore’s team released a statement that made the divorce official. This statement was preceded by many rumours and allegations that are believed to be the cause of the divorce. According to these claims, Ashton Kutcher had a history of cheating on Demi Moore multiple times. Demi Moore also said that she felt like she wasn’t supported by her husband. Ashton Kutcher then responded by calling her statements false.
What is interesting about the Ashton Kutcher-Demi Moore divorce is that Demi Moore put out a statement by herself. Usually, couples who end their marriage make a joint statement for the press. In Demi Moore’s statement, she said that she had decided to end the marriage. This implies that it was a unilateral decision made from her end of the relationship.
According to numerous news outlets at the time, the age difference between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore also played a part in them splitting up. These outlets also added that Demi Moore was more successful than Ashton Kutcher at the beginning of their relationship. Being in different stages of their life and career could have caused a divide between the couple.
Some relationship experts claim that the media is also to blame for this divorce. Unlike most celebrity couples, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were very open, honest, and upfront about the details of their relationship. They were not afraid of disclosing any details with the media, nor did they try to be secretive about their interest in each other. However, this caused the media and some tabloids to start over-examining their relationship. The rumours started by the media were well before any actual problems started between the couple and are suspected to have also strained the marriage.
HOW ASHTON KUTCHER COPED WITH THE DIVORCE FROM DEMI MOORE
Ashton Kutcher shared his process of dealing with the divorce on a podcast called ‘Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard’. Dax Shepard is an American actor who now hosts the very popular podcast just previously mentioned. Ashton Kutcher and Dax Shepard also worked together on ‘The Ranch’.
‘Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard’ is all about vulnerability and getting into ‘real talk’. Unlike most public appearances or interviews, celebrities will be very candid about their amazing life experiences and some not so amazing experiences. Hearing the guests talk about their struggles and the real-world gritty methods that they used to overcome them is part of the appeal of the show.
Ashton Kutcher shared that after his divorce, he went to the Big Sky mountains in Montana. He spent a whole week in isolation with no food. The actor also mentioned that he was completely disconnected from the modern world and did not carry any electronic devices with him.
