(Newser) – Ashton Kutcher's divorce from Demi Moore has been held up because of—you guessed it—the green stuff in their wallets, TMZ reports. Kutcher filed for divorce on Friday, a year after their breakup, saying he waited as a "dignity thing" so Moore could file first. He also asked for no spousal support and denied none to Moore. But sources say the hangup is really Moore's wanting a settlement like she got from Bruce Willis—which is under wraps, but word is she fattened her bank account big time. Yet Moore is far wealthier than Kutcher; her Manhattan pad alone worth roughly $25 million. Maybe she really was "devastated" when Kutcher started dating Mila Kunis?

Any woman in this situation should try to salvage whatever dignity she has left without trying to prolong the divorce. If she doesn't need the money, then let him go without trying to shaft him; no one knows what really went on in their marriage, but it takes two to tango.

She is rich but maybe they forgot how much he earns per episode of his TV show?! It was reported that he's the highest paid TV actor. He was rich before his TV show. And he humiliated Demi with his affair(s). He knew what she went through with Bruce Willis and his affair, then Ashton does the same thing to her. He should have divorced her first if he wanted to sleep around. So I think he does owe her something for that. She doesn't really need or care about the money, as I think it's just payback for his cheating.
