Demi Moore Files for Divorce from Ashton Kutcher

By Nottage and Ward on November 22, 2011

On November 17, actress Demi Moore announced that she is filing for divorce from her husband of six years, actor Ashton Kutcher, according to The Huffington Post. Moore, who is about 16 years older than Kutcher, told the Associated Press that she decided to end her marriage to Kutcher “with great sadness and a heavy heart.”

In September, rumors about marital troubles began when Kutcher was allegedly caught cheating on a trip to San Diego. Kutcher denied the rumors. However, after his alleged mistress stepped forward, it fueled the media fire. Moore and Kutcher apparently tried to work through the issues in their marriage, but Moore eventually made the decision to divorce. Moving vans were seen outside the couple’s house in October, supporting rumors that the pair was in fact splitting. Camping and Kabbalah counseling did not bring reconciliation, and, unfortunately, neither did spending time at Bruce Willis’ vacation home on Turks and Caicos early this month. Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were married for 10 years and have three children. They remain good friends.

Kim Kardashian Divorces NBA Star Husband after 72 Days of Marriage

By Nottage and Ward on November 4, 2011

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian were married in August of this year, but after only two and a half months, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce, apparently devastating her husband. According to The Huffington Post, the reason for her soon-to-be ex-husband’s dejection may not be solely because of the divorce, but perhaps the terms of the divorce.

In the divorce documents filed by Kardashian, the reality star requested that the court reject any motion for spousal support from Humphries, in addition to requesting that each party cover their own legal fees. As per their pre-nuptial agreement, Kardashian keeps all assets of hers prior to the marriage as well as anything she earned during the marriage, however short-lived. The Kardashian family made $65 million last year, while Humphries, currently unemployed as a result of the NBA lockout, made about $3.2 million.

Frank and Jamie McCourt May Be Headed to Resolution Regarding Dodgers Ownership

By Nottage and Ward on April 8, 2011

The Los Angeles Times reports that Frank and Jamie McCourt are working quietly to settle their high-profile divorce, which has grabbed national headlines. The infamous case involves ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

According to the article, a court hearing scheduled for April 11 was delayed to May 11 at the request of Jamie McCourt, who asked that Frank be ordered by the court to provide her with financial documentation of the business operations of the Dodgers. However, the adjustment also grants both parties more time to concentrate on negotiating an agreement to end their contentious divorce, which began in late 2009 after almost 30 years of marriage.
