Ashton Kutcher reportedly filed for divorce as Mila Kunis was being “driven crazy” by the fact he was still married to Demi Moore.
The actor and his wife announced they had split last year, after he was accused of being unfaithful on their sixth wedding anniversary. Despite Demi releasing a statement saying she had ended the union, neither party filed to officially end the marriage.
Ashton posted legal papers on Friday and it’s been suggested his new girlfriend Mila had urged him to do so.
“[Mila feels] she and Ashton are in limbo due to Demi dragging her feet… [and] seeming unwilling to face facts that it was over and Ashton had moved on – and so should she,” an insider told Chicago Sun-Times.
“[Demi's reluctance to file for divorce] was really driving Mila crazy.”
It’s been suggested that Ashton didn’t initially take steps to legally end things as he wanted to let Demi take the reins.
Other reports suggest the split has been held up as the couple have been trying to work out how to divide their assets. Demi, 50, is said to be feeling fine about the separation and is happy the divorce is in full swing.
Ashton and Mila have been friends since they appeared on That ’70s Show together and started dating earlier this year. Things are thought to be going well, with friends of the couple expecting an engagement announcement before too long.
“They have such a strong relationship – originally built on a great friendship – which now has blossomed into a beautiful love affair,” a source explained.
