The couple—who wed in 2005—called it quits in November 2011, although it wasn’t until December 2012 that Ashton officially filed for divorce, just as things were heating up with his current flame, former That 70s Show costar Mila Kunis!
Demi allegedly wanted spousal support, causing the divorce to take longer than usual; however, TMZ is now reporting that Demi “backed off” and the former husband and wife were able to reach a financial settlement.
High-power celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser reportedly filed the documents on behalf of Ashton.
In early October, Laura opened up to In Touch and admitted that “nothing surprises [her] anymore” and that she’s come across everything—from outlandish prenups to stars playing dirty by practically extorting their exes!
“If it’s worth enough, the client will [pay] to keep it quiet,” she revealed.
Hopefully the settlement was smooth for Demi and Ashton!
