Demi Moore To Divorce Ashton Kutcher

Ashton tweeted this late yesterday
Demi Moore has announced she is ending her six year marriage to Ashton Kutcher, 33. The 49-year-old actress released a statement yesterday. Read below:
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation'.
Third failed marriage for Demi, she must be feeling really bad. And I know I'm a horrible person for saying this, but I'm kinda relieved for Ashton. Now he can marry a younger woman and have kids of his own.
