Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are locked in a battle over $10 million. The former couple - who announced their split in November 2011 - have yet to finalize their divorce as they are still in negotiations over a settlement, and the actress is reportedly asking for an eight-figure sum due to Ashton's involvement in a venture capital fund worth $100 million.
The Two and a Half Men star announced his new technology start-up investment firm A-Grade, which is a partnership with Madonna's manager Guy Oseary and billionaire Ron Burkle, earlier this month with an estimated value of $100 million and Demi believes she is entitled to a piece of the actor's newfound fortune. However, Ashton - who owns 20 per cent of the company - insists his profits from the company aren't communal as he made his millions after their split.
"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.
It's been two years since Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from Pete Wentz, and the Fall Out Boy bassist is finally talking to the public about the split and the toll it took on him.
The 33 year-old admitted recently to Rolling Stone that his addiction to prescription pills Xanax and Klonopin resumed and he experienced paranoia following the break-up:
"I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled... I felt like a loser already. I'd basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn't see how I'd ever come out on the other side... I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy."

Sadly though, time wasn't on Demi's side, and she was never able to fulfill his baby wish. Demi believes in her heart that if they had had a child together, there wouldn't be a divorce going on right now. She thinks if there had been a baby at home Ashton wouldn't have been out partying with friends, and he wouldn't have had the chance to cheat on her," a source said.
