In early November, Demi Moore announced: “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton.”
Her statement came after months of rumors that Kutcher had had an affair.
Kutcher stated; “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the hardest things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
Kutcher and Moore’s relationship garnered much attention for their age difference of 16 years, and their religious practices. Both are believers in Kabbalah and had sought counseling from their Kabbalah instructor before announcing the divorce.
Michele, on the other hand, comes from an Italian American, Roman Catholic and Sephardic Judaism background.
