In Touch was the first to report that Demi Moore has been unfaithful to husband Ashton Kutcher with his even younger friend Ben Hollingsworth. And although the affair may have caused another rift in Demi’s marriage, it seems for Ben, it was something to boast about!

Although both of their reps are denying the affair, an insider reveals that Ben “bragged” about their steamy hookups and gushed about Demi to the insider, who shares, “He said she was really hot and she took care of him.” Publicly, he praised her even more, calling her “talented and beautiful” in the press — and appealing to her fragile ego.

Indeed, Demi must have reveled in the fact that Ben worshipped her. Deeply insecure over the age difference between Ashton and herself and becoming increasingly unhinged that he was turning into a bigger star than her, she started acting desperate and needy. She danced sexily in front of her husband when they were out in public and even suggested threesomes with other women in order to keep him interested in their crumbling, dysfunctional marriage. With Ben, Demi didn’t need to worry as much. She could bask in the attention of an aspiring, awed actor — an ideal situation.
