Demi Moore is apparently refusing to divorce Ashton Kutcher over £6m investment row
Demi Moore is apparently refusing to divorce Ashton Kutcher over £6m investment row.
The actress, who is worth an estimated £100million herself, is apparently trying to wrestle over £6million from Ashton Kutcher before she grants him a divorce.
Demi is reportedly refusing to sign divorce papers unless she receives her slice of a venture capital fund worth £65million that Ashton was involved in.
Kutcher is said to own a 20 per cent stake in a technology start-up firm called A-Grade, along with Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary and billionaire Ron Burkle.
‘Ashton and Demi are still not divorced and no settlement has been agreed, even though they have been in negotiations for over a year. Ashton made a lot of money after they married, but he doesn’t believe he owes her as much as she is asking for,’ a source told the New York Post.
The insider added: ‘Ashton set up A-Grade with Oseary and Burkle 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.’
