(Newser) – It took a few months, but Demi Moore finally responded to Ashton Kutcher's divorce filing today—and she wants spousal support. Like Kutcher, Moore cited "irreconcilable differences" in the split, People reports, but Radar notes that she also may have confirmed Kutcher's cheating: She lists the date of separation as Nov. 17, 2011, but he allegedly hooked up with another woman on Sept. 24 of that year, claiming at the time that he was already separated.

Moore's request for alimony, as well as compensation for her legal fees, could mean that the whole thing could end up a courtroom drama, E! notes. But TMZ points out that Moore is worth millions more than Kutcher, and calls it "surprising" that she's angling for spousal support since he didn't. The site's assessment: "It's almost out of the question" that she'll actually get alimony. And we may not get a court showdown, either: Sources say both sides are negotiating and expect to figure things out quickly. (Read more Demi Moore stories.)
