It's over: Demi Moore has filed for divorce from Ashton Kutcher, pictured together here at the January premiere of his movie No String Attached in Los Angeles

Moore added that it's a trying time for her and her family, so she asked for people to respect her privacy.

Immediately after the announcement, 33-year-old Ashton posted his own statement on Twitter.

He wrote: 'I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi.

'Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK.'

Moore and Kutcher were wed in September 2005. The couple's relationship became tabloid fodder in recent months as rumours swirled about Kutcher's alleged infidelity.

The Two And A Half Men star allegedly shared a night of passion with party girl Sara Leal, 22, at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego.

Texas-born Leal sold her story on Kutcher weeks after the fling, which took place on Ashton and Demi's sixth wedding anniversary, September 24.

Leal relived the sordid details of the night, detailing how she had cavorted with Kutcher and a gaggle of girls in a hot tub in the hotel suite.

She claimed Kutcher told her he was separated from Demi before the Two And A Half Men star tried to persuade her to have a threesome along with her best friend Marta Borzuchowski - but in the end he settled for a two-hour romp with her.

Speaking of the fling, she told The Sun: 'We had sex twice. Everything felt natural. We were having a good time. He was good, but it wasn't weird or perverted or creepy.

'He had good endurance. We were up for a while. It was about two hours.'

In the weeks after the story broke, Kutcher and Moore made apparent attempts to heal their relationship with Kabbalah retreats, including a camping trip to Cachuma Lake near Santa Barbara, California, last month.

The couple were accompanied by some close friends along with their Kabbalah instructor Yehuda Berg and photos emerged of the pair sat around an outdoor fire.

It was first time they were pictured together since news of Kutcher's alleged booze-fuelled one-night stand broke.

In the weeks that followed, Demi appeared to be suffering under the strain of her marriage breakdown became gaunt and scarily skinny - reportedly dropping down to just 7st (98lbs) which given her height of 5ft5 is considerably underweight.

But it was not the first time Kutcher had been accused of being unfaithful to Demi.

Kutcher was first accused of infidelity in September last year, when Brittney Jones, 21, said she had sex with the actor at the Beverly Hills home he shares with his wife while she was away.

She also later claimed that Kutcher told her he had an open relationship with Demi and they would 'often engage in threesomes'.

Jones told Star: 'He looked over our texts and said he wanted me to delete all the messages from him. He then told me he wanted me to delete the texts I had sent to him. He said they could hurt him.'

At the time, the couple, who are worth an estimated £95million, brushed off the allegations.

Kutcher, who took over Charlie Sheen’s role in hit U.S. TV series Two And A Half Men earlier this year, wrote on Twitter at the time: 'I think Star magazine calling me a "cheater" qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees.'

He added: 'Star magazine – you don’t get to stand behind "freedom of the press" when you are writing fiction.'

Kutcher’s spokesman also denied the allegation while Miss Moore tweeted ‘Excellent point my love!’

At the time of the split, Willis said: 'I felt I had failed as a father and a husband by not being able to make it work.'

Moore, who starred alongside Patrick Swayze in the 1990 movie Ghost, first marriage was to singer Freddy Moore.

She got hitched to him aged 18 in 1980 and the relationship lasted four years - but still goes by his last name.
