After weeks of rumours surrounding the state of her marriage, Demi Moore has finally confirmed that she will divorce Ashton Kutcher.
The 49-year-old actress admitted that she'd taken the decision to separate from her husband with "great sadness and a heavy heart".
"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".
After releasing the statement, Demi also requested that people respect her privacy during what will be a difficult time for her and her family.
The couple married in September 2005 and seemed to be one of the most solid partnerships in Hollywood.
This will be the second divorce for the actress, who was previously married to actor Bruce Willis for 13 years.
