Ashton and Demi fighting over money

Los Angeles - Ashton Kutcher's divorce from Demi Moore has reportedly turned nasty.

The estranged couple are said to be locked in a bitter battle over their enormous fortunes.

The pair separated last November after six years of marriage following the Two And A Half Men star's affair with 22-year-old San Diego-based administrative assistant Sara Leal.

A source told The New York Post: "(They) are trying to negotiate a settlement out of court and out of the public eye. They still haven't reached an agreement over money, because Ashton earned substantially more during the final years of their marriage, but he doesn't want to pay a large settlement."

The 34-year-old actor - who is currently the highest paid star on TV and earns £440 000 per episode and is estimated to have banked £15m since taking over the sitcom from Charlie Sheen - is worth £87m, while Demi is worth £94m.

Ashton is 'cheap'

Another source close to the pair said: "The discussion could boil over into a public court battle."

Ashton was previously said to be refusing to budge on the financial terms of their separation and how they should divide their assets.

A source said the actor is "so cheap" and is refusing to sign off on the paperwork so they can finally go their separate ways.

Ashton has already moved on from the actress and is reportedly living with his new girlfriend Mila Kunis, whom he has known for 14 years as they previously starred in the hit comedy series That 70s Show together.
